Kebaya Tales:

Of Matriarchs, Maidens, Mistresses and Matchmakers

-----

Lee Su Kim

This 180 page book gives a ficitonalised women's view of the ups and downs of life in Baba Nyonya Society, otherwise known as the Peranakans, the descendants of Chinese and Malay parents. With her usual wit and satire, the author takes us through the community's culture, beliefs and superstitions and much else that characterises this colourful community. The thirteen short stories are interspersed with colourful pictures mainly highlighting nyonya (female) decorative wear. The book begins with a chapter, "About the Babas and Nyonyas," to give anyone unfamiliar with the Straits Chinese all they need to enjoy this book.   New Paperback Reprint
