WHAT KIND OF ASIAN ARE YOU? PODCAST is a podcast featuring conversations with Diaspora Asians (third culture kids) about their life, stories and experiences.

Through conversations, Kyle looks to explore Diaspora Asians’ views on culture, identity, family, and more.

In the article, there are many photos of the 富二代s showing off their possessions (be it money, cars, expensive brand names, and/or women).

While I normally don’t have a problem with people showing off, they have gone too far.

In the article, there is a picture of a woman who is surrounded in a pile of money and SHE IS HOLDING A LIGHTER RIGHT NEXT TO THE MONEY. Are you kidding me?! SHE IS POSING TOO.
