Evangeline Neo’s gallery of cultural differences continues with this follow-up to Eva, Kopi and Matcha. During her studies abroad in the United States and Japan, Eva’s early brushes with how things are in those countries left such an impression on her that she eventually recorded them in webcomics, which featured her imaginary pets: Kopi the dog and Matcha the cat.
In this volume, readers are also regaled with often hilarious anecdotes of life abroad and comparisons between her home country of Singapore and places such as the United States, Vietnam, Indonesia and, of course, Japan. Some of her earlier works are also included here. Through her art and accounts, one realises that humour might be the best cushion for culture shock.
