Cheo Kim Ban & Muriel Speeden

For some centuries before the main influx of Chinese immigrant labour into Southeast Asia from the 19th century onwards, Chinese had settled in the region intermarrying with members of their hoist communities and developing a distinct culture of their own. In this fascinating little book, the authors reveal the many quirks and superstitions of that culture including the power of yam stalks to control errant husbands, why children are never given sugarcane at twilight and a wealth of other information that influences the lives of the Peranakan people. New Paperback. First Edition. 152 pages with some line drawings.
