A memory about my cultural background as a descendant of Nyonya/Peranakans, early Chinese migrants who settled mostly in Penang, Malacca, Singapore and Medan. While mine was from Penang, the sister city of Adelaide. The characteristic of the English ceramic tiles were a strong feature in the Peranakan heritage shophouses, as well as the beautiful handmade beaded slippers, floral motifs batik bowl sets used for special occasions or for ancestral offerings etc. The Peranakans have some of the most fascinating hybrid identities- an eclectic fusion of Chinese, Malay & Western culture.
