Corona Again Topic of Family Dinner Conversation

The family is really running out of topics to talk about. Anna, 24 and her family once again find themselves around the table discussing Covid-19. Dinner is a steamed whole fish with ginger shallot sauce prepared by her mother. The family spends about 5 minutes discussing how tasty the dish is, and what sauces were used.  Afterwards, the brief lull in conversation inevitably means the topic is again the coronavirus. “So what’s new with the coronavirus?” her dad says. “I hear everything is pretty much open again”, says her mum. “I heard we might start having to do booster shots...

OUR STORY

The YAP Native, The Native or TYN was formed in the spring of 2016 when four friends suppressed by the corporate ladder decided they’d had enough.

“Let’s start a nightclub…for Asians” said the eccentric friend, Jimmy Casino. 

“Nah that’s so 2012. let’s get into the fashion industry” said the cultured friend, Jenny Zhang. “We can sell subscription boxes”

“Also been done” came in the Indian friend, Goannadeep Singh.

Before Goanadeep could pitch a Tandoori chicken burger pop-up store, the socially awkward friend, Ignatius Chan, finally spoke up.

“W-what about a newspaper?”

With no experience in journalism, a skill that falls under the arts in the eyes of the community, the quartet went all in.

Piggybacking off the success of others, they’ve covered some huge stories for humankind like Asa Akira and the really expensive date which turned Rich Brian Poor.
