Times to Remember (South East Asia Life)

Times to Remember (South East Asia Life)

Malaysia is a country of nearly 30 million people in Southeast Asia with a variety of cultural groups; nearly 55% are of Malay descent, 25% have Chinese ancestry, over 12% are indigenous, and roughly 8% have bloodlines from India; each group carries on cultural traditions that have been passed on for generations. Malaysia we discover is known for its excellent clay, which encourages many to learn the craft of pottery making. Then we learn how coconut palms are at the heart of Southeast Asian life. As well as fruits, they give jobs, especially to Indian migrant workers and their families. Here we meet several locals who love their work and who believe in the power and good health, which coconuts can bring. We also learn of the Palm Toddy, sometimes called Coconut Champagne, which is an inexpensive popular drink with intoxicating properties. 00/10DE JSCA 30 min.
