Looking for a special gift? One could describe this pocket-sized book as a handy journal, but it is much more than that. Author Koh Tze Yin introduces the reader into the ‘ornately beautiful world of the Nonya’ through dazzling photography and explanatory notes. The ‘Nonya’ or ‘Peranakan’ culture has its origins in intermarriage between Chinese settlers and Malay women, but over the generations has grown into a wonderfully stylish ‘hybrid’ culture of its own. With ample space to record your own memories of Malaysia scattered throughout the book, this is a keepsake anyone would love to own.
