Understanding Singaporeans Bundle

$51.60 $46.40

Epigram Books

Synopsis:

Why do Malays use “bin” and “binte” in their names? Why is Chinatown called “cow car water”? Why do Indians hang mango leaves in doorways? How can you tell if someone is Eurasian?

We provide the answers— and useful tips as well—to some of the most-asked questions young Singaporeans have about the customs, traditions and festivals of Singapore's four main races.

The Understanding Singaporeans Bundle consists of four illustrated handbooks, each with 20 questions and answers to promote understanding of the different races and cultures in Singapore.
