You may not know this, but May is Asian-American month! In addition to all of the official activities taking place all throughout the month, an easy and fun way to join the party is by embracing the rich cultural diversity from the comfort of your own home, without having to change your already-busy schedule. Not sure how? Well, that’s exactly why we’re here. Check out these cool suggestions and start celebrating from your couch!
Watch history in the making
The past few years have been busy for the Asian-American entertainment industry, which is absolutely awesome. From record-breaking, boundaries-blurring movies like Crazy Rich Asians, to hit TV shows like Fresh Off the Boat (which was already renewed for season 6!), there’s a lot to watch and more to look forward to. These are important milestones that expose audiences everywhere to diverse, untold stories and representations, and share the important background of the Asian American community.
Play all May
If you’re looking for a more interactive way to enjoy this special month, there’s no easy path than to simply tap on the Google Play icon on your mobile screen and download a fun gaming app! You’ll find wonderful Asian-themed social games, such as the mobile slots app 88 Fortunes. Have fun discovering enchanting graphics inspired by the Far East and engaging games that offer incredible rewards. Hurry up and download the app right here.
Celebrate with your plate
Another great way of bringing more Asian flavors into your life is by doing exactly that! After all, this national month is basically our excuse to eat the amazing food cooked in Asian countries, and the variety of American fusion versions available. You can order in from nearby restaurants (because there’s no need to get out of the house, remember?) or get inspired by online recipes and give your home cooking skills a shot (and if they fail you – go back to plan A and order in!). Either way, you are in for some tasty treats.
We are lucky to be living in a world with different cultures, traditions, and people surrounding us. Events such as Asian Pacific American Heritage month remind us to celebrate and embrace that. We hope you’ll enjoy the month of May, and may it bring you lots of new and exciting experiences!
