Peranakan Homes
"Peranakan" is a Malay word meaning "born locally". In English-language usage, the term refers to the Straits-Chinese: Chinese born and bred in the Straits settlements of Singapore, Malacca and Penang, and who regarded the colonies as their home. Their culture was a unique blend of Chinese, Malaysian and Western influences. The basic style of these colorful Peranakan houses is European, but the detailing reflects Asian influences.
