PETALING JAYA: Those of Peranakan descent and fans of Baba Nyonya culture will be thrilled by the 26th Baba Nyonya International Convention, which is being held for the first time here.
The three-day event, held at Holiday Villa Subang Jaya, will kick off with a Gala Night for delegates today, which will showcase cultural dances, music and comedy.
A re-enactment of a traditional Baba Nyonya wedding will also be staged.
On Saturday, a “bab-zaar” selling Peranakan crafts and other paraphernalia will open to the public.
The bazaar will also play host to workshops making traditional potpourri, red paper cuttings and decorations, talks on traditional kebaya, and a cooking demonstration from Nyonya chef Debbie Teoh.
There will also be stalls selling beaded shoes, jewellery, kuih and food, sarong, kebaya and more.
Organised by KL-Selangor Peranakan Baba Nyonya Association president Dr Lee Su Kim (pic), the event hopes to see over 500 guests in attendance.
Themed “Beyond Borders, Across Oceans,” Lee said the event would be “quite grand” and would expose people to the “culture, history, art and literature of Peranakan people.”
