Peranakans were amongst the earlier settlers in Singapore.
They were originally made up of a mix of Chinese, Malay & Indonesian
  descendants. With this vibrant mix a unique cultural group has been
  formed. Arts and crafts have been past down through the generations.
  Delicately embroidered glass – beaded slippers, elaborate patterns in
  pastel shades and decorative tiles are some of the treasures of this rich culture.
