    I have recently become fascinated with the Perankan culture. It started with some dishes and then trying to find out where they were from. I had a very difficult time but slowly I started to find more information on your culture. This article has been very helpful and informative.
    Please keep me on your mailing list as I would like to continue to learn more about this culture.
    Thank you,

    Great article! Thank you so much for sharing. I live in Sweden so you can add Sweden to your list of countries that the Peranakans ancestors have spread to. My grandfathers mother was Nyonya. Reading you’re article I realize that som of the things I inherited from my mother, who was originally from Penang, belong to Peranakan Heritage, like a tiffin karrier and a sarong kebaya. I’ve always just looked upon them as just Chinese and Malaysian things, but suddenly there put in a different context. How exiting!
