Peranakan Treasure Hunt
Peranakan Treasure Hunt
Part antique shop, part museum, this perfectly preserved Peranakan heritage home is well worth a visit if you are in Katong on the east side of Singapore. Owner and fourth-generation Peranakan Peter Wee has been buying, restoring and selling Peranakan antiques since 1971. Call ahead to make an appointment (+65 6345 8544) or knock on the door between 11am and 6pm in the hopes that he'll be at home and interested in receiving guests. You'll be rewarded with a quick peek at his collection of traditional Peranakan dishes, jewelry, beaded slippers, robes, furniture and more. NB: Sometimes he charges a fee for a tour of the house and collection.
