Peranakan Houses




Malacca has a rich and colourful Peranakan history and culture. It takes the best from Chinese, Malay and European cultures. From beautiful phoneix and flower motifs on vases , dinner plates and tiles to ornate carvings on the windows of their houses. How charming and quaint.

I even bought a painting from a local artist that featured a row of Peranakan houses. According to the art gallery, the artist is a young lady who signs off as AHA ! It now hangs prettily in my living room wall. It was never my intention to buy a piece of art. All I was looking for were pineapple tarts but then things happen. AHA . A Happy Artist perhaps and of course a very Happy buyer.
