Peranakan Inspirations!

I felt like a tourist today...

Just brings back the good old memories of excursions during Primary school days...

Explored the Pernakan Museum at Armenian Street today... and I was really wowed by the culture and heritage of the Pernakan community!


Beautiful poreclain to intricate jewellery.. It was really a sight to behold as you can see from the numerous photographs here...

Nice 'kamcheng's (porcelain containers to hold spices and water)with interesting motiffs that is unique to the Peranakan culture:














Even the teapots are nice:
Even more porcelain containers, check them out:


Next, headed to Lau Pa Sat for satay.. and even more Peranakan stuff.. a road show for the Singapore Food Festival with Peranakan culture as its theme this year... with host Violet Oon!
