An update on this exciting study! In June, 2018, results were revealed to both many a Baba and Nyona at a fun evening at the Peranakan Museum. A few photos below capture the event.
Are you a BABA or NYONYA? If you think you've got even a touch of Peranakan in your bloodline, do support a ground-breaking study of Peranakan DNA! Supported by the National University of Singapore, this study is being conducted by doctors & scientists who are all volunteers. It is meant to benefit the Peranakan Community as a whole to discover our genetic ancestry.
At least 200 more participants are still needed for this project. Thank you so much for spreading the word and supporting a great cause! Please use the 'share' button below to let your friends and family know. This project has now ended - thank you for your interest!
Gunong Sayang Association, the home of Peranakan dance and performances, recently hosted its annual Chinese New Year Bazaar. The event also hosted a reach-out event whereby a volunteer research team from NUS hopes to sequence the genome of Peranakan people and find out more about their roots - whether it be Chinese, Malay or other!
My daughter and I were also thrilled to also meet Singaporean Peranakan actor Pierre Png during the bazaar. She (and me too!) enjoyed watching him a while back in local television drama called Mata Mata. We both like quite a few local actors including Rebecca Lim and Daren Tan!

I love jewellery, but most of the mainstream designs don’t really suit my style. That’s why I’m so keen on the unique creations by local design houses including Chinoiserie Blu and Choo Yilin. Check out some Baba Nyoyna inspired creations sure to make you stand out from the crowd!
