Banana Magazine

With articles like ‘Yes I’m Korean. No I don’t hit my girlfriend.’ Banana Magazine is a sophisticated high-tech publication with a mission and medium that satisfies a much broader audience than one would initially anticipate. Yuki Hayashi investigates the dating of non-Asian men in a piece called ‘Yellow Fever.’ That said, Banana Magazine’s content, in general, is a confluence of personal experience and pop-culture relevance with an accessible Asian-Canadian focus. Self-satire comes in the form of: “Was it because they thought I ate dogs?” as well as articles which disarm the notion that all Vietnamese Vancouverites are drug dealers. There’s a somewhat deadpan interview with Miss Canada International: “Korean Pride is one of our culture’s worse and best qualities at different times”. Also included is a field guide to Karaoke participants, (Derek Toye’s illustrations are supremely triumphant here) and tons of fashion spreads, some you won’t find in the standard glossy rags.

  1. I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. Wow, superb blog structure! How lengthy have you been running a blog for? you made blogging look easy. The whole glance of your site is magnificent, let alone the content!
