About your host

Peranakans are a group of migrants who have made South-East-Asia their home since the 1500's and earlier. They can include migrants from China, India and even Europe. I am a Singapore Chinese Peranakan who has re-discovered his roots while living in Australia and eager to share! My co-host is 5th generation Chinese Peranakan, who is a custodian of his family's history, and a cultural ambassador.
