Heritage Saturdays Discovers The Peranakan World
Following the fun Saturday at Chinese Heritage Centre last month, we are set to learn about Peranakan heritage!
'Peranakan’ refers to ‘local born’ or ‘local descendants’. Th local people of the Straits Settlement and Malay Archipelagos used this term to address foreign immigrants whom established families and businesses in the Straits of Southeast Asia. It is said that a large part of Peranakan customs comes from traditional beliefs inherited from their Chinese ancestors. Their strict observance of these beliefs sometimes supplants even the Chinese themselves.
Join us in this discovery!
About Peranakan Heritage Museum
The old Tao Nan School, a Chinese school, was converted into Asian Civilisation Museum and then later became Peranakan Museum, to showcase the eclectic Peranakan culture. The Permanent exhibitions take you from the origins to the fashion of the Peranakan members in Singapore.
