Sarong Secrets: Of Love, Loss and Longing – Su Kim Lee

A delightful collection of 12 short stories that brings the reader into the world of the Peranakans, or the Straits Chinese, a colourful community still in existence today in Malacca, Penang and Singapore. Through the stories, the reader gains a fascinating insight into the culture, beliefs and way of life of the Babas and Nyonyas who make up the people. All the stories are based on or are inspired by real-life events which the author has collected from her nyonya mother, grandmother, relatives and friends.
