Marla Cabanban is New Slang’s Art Director and is a graphic designer by profession. Apart from dealing with her writer’s block, she’s also trying to raise her design studio from the ground. Alice appears in her profile picture because she’ll be in the US for a month and Marla will miss her. She also blogs at Girl Anachronism.


Our editors scour the web for fresh thinking and good writing about what’s going on in Asia. When we find interesting or entertaining perspectives on issues both big and small, we ask these bloggers and writers to contribute their posts or to collaborate with us in one or another way.
