The Little Nonya and Little Baba visit China! SG52

We had the opportunity to go to Guangzhou to celebrate National Day with our fellow Singaporeans. We also had to chance to share about the Peranakan culture, it's always nice to be invited to share Peranakan culture to non Singaporeans. It's even better when you can do it with someone you've known all your life! Cheryl mesmerised the crowd with her culinary skills, whipping out a mean Kueh Pie Tee at the Guangzhou Library, filling the air with the fragrant smell of tao chioh! And when she was not cooking, she was busy sharing with visitors the skilful art of Peranakan Beading. Many thanks to Singapore Consulate General in Guangzhou for the kind invitation and super warm hospitality. View all the pictures here.  ...

Transitions II (2013)

YOUR LAST CHANCE TO GET TICKETS! AN EXTRA SHOW IS NOW CONFIRMED ON SAT 26 JAN @ 3.30PM. LIMITED TICKETS, GET YOURS NOW! TRANSITIONS II is a collaborative piece of theatre performance, devised, written and performed by the Theatre Studies & Drama students of Tampines Junior College. Come and join us in this heart-touching and uplifting performance. Synopsis: A Peranakan saying goes, harta dunia nanti semua pulang balek dunia. The world’s riches must eventually be returned to the world. Of course, our uniquely Singaporean obsessions today are on more pragmatic sides of life: location of the next BTO, new ERP rates, COE prices issued every quarter, and how to beat the GST hike. Less philosophical musings, but many will argue as useful. Perhaps, what city-dwellers like you and I really need is a renewed experience of what doesn’t change. Whence we came, the identity that binds us, and the things we call home; the fount upon which we...
