After some thinking, Ricepaper’s Gavin Hee decided to step away from his day job so that he could see more of the world while he still has legs that function. In preparation for his trip to Southeast Asia which begins with Kuala Lumpur, he thought who better to prime him than Ricepaper’s very own Malaysian, William Tham. They discuss culture and history in mostly dead silence until their neighbor down the hall starts practicing opera providing a colourful soundtrack to what would have otherwise been just two guys shooting the breeze.
