Welcome to Morning Brew this Friday. Yesterday, I asked Steve Vines how one can possibly quantify or define a leader "loving" his or her country (re CE election). Well, that question has been well and truly answered overnight, as we learned of the sad and deservedly peaceful passing of the father of democracy in South Africa; Nelson Mandela or "Madiba" as he was fondly known. Sometime this morning, a chat with former Deputy (and acting) South African Consul General in HK, Greg De'eb, for a personal tribute. Chef Robin Ba... Zavou has kindly agreed to drop everything, including his trousers. and join us for a pre Christmas Chef-up at 10.10 today. After 11, a quick phone call with HK's "Chief Russian", Mark Zavadsky about an upcoming gig he's organising with the Matryomin Mable Ensemble. The Matryonin being a particularly freaky sounding musical instrument. One of the world's greatest drummers, Tommy Snyder, joins us at 11.40. Tommy has played for...everybody...and is here for some Tom Lee gigs. Some poetry for Operation Santa Claus after 12, as we meet young bard-esse, Ellie-Kate Macalister, who's the organiser of "Lah Lah Blah Blah" at the Fringe next week. We'll wrap up as usual for a Friday with Gary's movie review. Today; "The Way Way Back". (9.30am-1pm, or email email@example.com )
Today on the 123 Show, Reenita chats with Andrew Lam, web editor of New America Media about how is own cultural identity as a writer took shape as he grew up in California after fleeing Vietnam as a refuge during the Fall of Saigon. I also talk with Anglo-Indian author, Glen Duncan about the challenges of growing up in a mixed race heritage. Then of course, our Forever Young on Friday segment with Susan Lavender.
