Peranakan Museum: Gold and A Wedding

The people behind the museum have done a great job. I absolutely love the muted pastel shades. I feel a sense of calm walking through this place. It’s much more fulfilling to spend time here than at another mall. I have become so weary of malls and the crowds. Especially the crowds on the weekends. Just zaps my energy.

More wedding scenes showing how the Peranakan culture has incorporated from both the Malay and Chinese cultures.  For the Indian Peranakans, aspects of the Indian culture as well.

    That is true that a Peranakan culture is a fusion of Malay and Chinese cultures.
