A few years ago, I told a colleague I was off on a holiday. “Where to?” he asked. “Malaysia”, I responded - and volunteered no extra information. His vocal response was something along the lines of “yeah, but where exactly in Malaysia?” He went on to mention a few different cities out there and explain how each of them have entirely different vibes. Not like I cared at that time; I was only excited to be heading to a new country.
But how true is that? Two cities in a country could be so different you wonder if they should even be grouped together - from time zones to weather to culture. In this new series, we will explore different cities not through the eyes of a tourist who pops in and out, but from that of a resident - one who lives and breathes the city on a daily, and possibly doesn’t like tourists very much!
Our first feature is with Shasha as she spills the insider tea on Vancouver, Canada - a city she’s lived in for three years now.
