What does it mean to be an Asian woman in 2019? Writer Hannah-Rose Yee, blogger Peony Lim and photographer Kit Lee attempt to answer that question as it relates to their varied and shared heritage, and the issues, complexities and absurdities of their lives.
Episode 9: Merry Christmas from Three Dumplings!
A very festive episode from Three Dumplings' co-hosts Peony Lim, Kit Lee and Hannah-Rose Yee. Happy end of 2018!
Episode 8: Introducing the Three Dumplings snack box!
In this episode, we introduce the different snacks in our special Christmas snack box, taste test them, and share our honest opinions about our favourites. Peony loves the seaweed crisps, Kit loves the Haw flakes, and Hannah loves it all. Buy one for yourself, one for a friend, and snack together. That's what Christmas is all about, actually, isn't it?
Episode 7: We're back! And we're answering all your questions
We're back! Did you miss us?
In this special episode we talked about the highlights from the first season - Kit sniffing Jonathan Rhys Meyers! All that Crazy Rich Asians Talk! - what we've been up to since recording, and our plans for the second season of the podcast. Plus, we hint at a very special project coming soon to the podcast, and that we hope you will all get involved.
Boy, it's nice to be back! Thank you to our Producer Ryan at Shortcuts and Badlands Studio for our artwork.
Episode 6: Let's talk about sex, baby!
It's the last episode of our first season, and we're going out with a bang. Literally. Join blogger Peony Lim, photographer Kit Lee and writer Hannah-Rose Yee as they chat about finding love in a hopeless place, by which we mean 2018.
Episode 5: The problem with the question 'Where are you from?'
It's the one thing that Asian and mixed race women like co-hosts blogger Peony Lim, photographer Kit Lee and writer Hannah-Rose Yee are asked almost daily, and a question that comes loaded with microagressions and othering. In episode five, the penultimate episode of this first season of Three Dumplings, we talk about ways to approach the idea of race and identity in a new, more open way.
Episode 4: Anxiety, speaking up and supporting each other
Mental health is a subject rarely discussed from the Asian perspective, but it's one that adversely impacts minority groups. Blogger Peony Lim, photographer Kit Lee and writer Hannah-Rose Yee share their personal experiences in epsiode four of Three Dumplings.
So refreshing and I felt so alike!
Never had any Chinese friends and being British Chinese living in Australia I really don’t fit in with a crowd. I loved agreeing with comments like Not Chinese enough, can’t speak Chinese so I can’t mingle in certain circles, even the remarks that are a backhanded compliment made me laugh!!! Hearing these girls chat about normality for me is amazing because I didn’t know anyone else felt the same way about several topics. A good laugh!
Like a warm gooey cookie
Fun, engaging, informative, warming.
Illuminating & fun
Pop culture from another cultural perspective (and fun, witty and zeitgeisty to boot!)
