Yii shows a promotional booklet of the Baba Nyonya Culture and Arts Centre that is set to open in Malacca.
KOTA KINABALU: Prominent entrepreneur and philanthropist, Dato’ Yii Ching Siew, has established a Baba Nyonya Culture and Arts Centre in Malacca city centre, with the aim of preserving the essence of the Baba Nyonya culture.
The centre will be open to visitors in mid-April this year.

Yii said the setting up of the Baba Nyonya Culture and Arts Centre was timely, as it would promote our country’s unique Baba 

Nyonya culture to foreign tourists, particularly in the Visit Malaysia Year 2014.

The centre delves into the history, culture and developments of the Baba Nyonya, which is presented in a modern way, he said.

“The centre will ensure better preservation and development of Baba Nyonya food, decorative items and arts,” Yii explained.

Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy Baba Nyonya delicacies at the centre, which Yii described as a fusion between 

Chinese and Malay cooking style and flavours.

Yii said the centre also had Baba Nyonya performances, such as a documentary on the history of the Baba Nyonya and a 20-

minute Baba Nyonya wedding ceremony.

Visitors can also don Baba Nyonya costumes, including Mandarin, wedding and elegantly embroidered costumes
.
Baba Nyonya refers to the descendants of the early Chinese immigrants who inter-married with local folks some 600 years

 ago.

“The Baba Nyonya Culture and Arts Centre will repackage the Baba Nyonya culture in order to disseminate and develop this 

unique culture of Malaysia to the whole world.”
