On the sixth episode of Asia Uncut, aired on the 17th April 2009, Jon had the pleasure of interviewing anti-drug crusader, Veronica Colondam, who founded the anti-drug organisation, Yayasan Cinta Anak Bangsa (YCAB).
Yayasan Cinta Anak Bangsa (YCAB), known as “Loving Our Nation’s Children”, is an independent non-profit social foundation started in August 1999. It is founded out of concern for the increasing incidence of drug abuse amongst Indonesia’s youth. Their main focus has been primary drug prevention in schools and communities, and ultimately to promote sustainable, income generating development programs in poor and disaster stricken areas of Indonesia.
You can make a generous contribution to this cause by making your bid for the auction of a collaborative art piece created by Jon and German artist Hans Mendler, as seen on the sixth episode.

Asia Uncut – itsReal

This week’s upcoming episode of Asia Uncut (number 6 on Friday, April 17 and Sunday, April 19) is one of jon’s favorites to date so be sure to check it out.

Having starred as the villainous accountant who ruffled the bat crusader’s cape in “Dark Knight”, Singaporean actor Ng Chin Hanbraces himself this time to take on Jon’s challenge of riding a lion.asia-uncut-tune-in-ep6-17409

Jon goes head-on with Hong Kong’s singing powerhouse twin Soler, renowned for independently writing all their songs and their electrifying live performances, in some footy fun and gets doppelganger-ed.

From vietnam war zone to glass slippers, the multi award-winning asian queen of musicals Lea Salonga shares with Jon her less-than-glamourous ascension from life before Miss Saigon to her latest in Cinderella.

Jon unravels the beauty and brains behind an anti-drug charity organisation (Yayasan Cinta Anak Bangsa) in Asia in writer and activist Veronica Colondam, and feels inclined to give a little helping hand.

Catch classic cultural misgivings between Jon and German Expressionist artist Hans Mendler that affirms the old adage art is the best language – well, if you can’t laugh with ’em, just ‘art’ with ’em.

And Asia Uncut’s most machismo-drenched interview ever when Jon meets hollywood actor Roland Kickinger from the new Terminator movie and feels the steel of this fitness-meister!
