Peranakan culture and history in Melaka, Malaysia is very much present until today. The Baba and Nyonya are descendants of the Chinese who came to Malaysia centuries ago and married the local people.
Little did I know, I am also a Peranakan from Indonesia. I didn’t have a good grasp of what peranakan is although I know that I am Chinese Indonesian (orang Tionghoa).
Aside from finding out a bit about my ancestry, we also tried some peranakan nyonya food. Some nyonya food that we tried: popiah, nyonya laksa, pie tee, ayam pongteh, udang lemak nanas (pineapple prawn), and lots of nyonya dumplings and nyonya kuih. We also tried a Malaysian food delicacy: cincalok (fermented shrimp).
Too bad the Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum in Melaka is closed due to covid/ RMCO in Malaysia. We would have loved to learn more about the Peranakan history. I guess that is the downside of travelling in Malaysia during the coronavirus outbreak.
We hope you enjoyed our vlog!
