AsiaLIFE’s February 2010 Issue Hits the Stands Today

February 2, 2010

This month, contributing editor Thomas Maresca and staff photographer Nam Quan head south to pose the question, “Is the Mekong Delta disappearing?” Climate change and human development have placed this critically important corner of the world in peril, but for the farmers and fishermen who live off the land, daily life remains unchanged. The gulf between the slow country life and impending crisis is rendered in stark contrast in “Delta Blues.”

Also this month: Director Victor Vu sits down for Q &A. Thomas Maresca explores one of the quaintest streets in HCMC. Tom DiChristopher demystifies Buddhist temples and speaks to the survivors of Vietnam’s F&B scene about life before Western restaurants. Dave Lemke explores the north country by motorbike. Kristen Avis solicits Chef Vincent Tan’s favourite eats in HCMC. The ed staff compiles a list of street food hotspots. Ginny Becker gets the scoop on the new netball league. Amy Morison helps us relax with a guide to Hoi An spas. And Anne Branigin gives parents a lesson in learner-centred methodology.
