word of the day: Peranakan

Kerry and I went to the National Museum of Singapore where I came across the term “Peranakan”, which I don’t think I’ve seen before. My definition is “mixed-ethnicity people, found round these parts”. As you can read on this thread, defining the term further gets you quickly into the weeds.

We only had an hour (people to meet, places to be!) but here are some pics:


National Museum of Singapore 93 Stamford Road Singapore 178897  $10 includes the touch-screen audio tour, which I always get when I have the chance. Check out these very positive reviews on TripAdvisor.
