Baba Dictionary

" Apa Khabair ? "

Finally at last we have a dictionary.

Thanks to author William Gwee Thian Hock for his painstaking hard work and all kind souls who help in one way or other. The Peranakan Assocition for coming up with the initial financial cotribution to kick start the project.

You can find the dictionary at the local bookshops titled A Baba Malay Dictionary - The First Comprehensive Compenduim of Straits Chinese Terms and Expressions.

So to all Peranakans and Non Peranakans who love our culture get a copy and lets start to cakap cakap Baba Malay.
