PERA has a keen interest in conserving the Peranakan culture. The tagline "1459 The Straits" under PERA logo marks the year of the beautiful & graceful Chinese Princess Hang Lipo's arrival at The Port of Malacca that began the era of The Straits' Chinese people. The charming, colorful, and inspirational culture of the Peranakan people is one which we are proud to share with the world. Unfortunately, though, it is also a culture which is slowly fading away due to modernization and diminishing social identity. Our commitment to helping preserve the heritage of the Peranakan includes encouraging the younger generation of the Baba-Nyonya people to learn about and revive their ethnic roots and unique history.
We invite you to join us as we celebrate the Peranakan culture and share their knowledge of the intricacies of nature and beauty.
