Peranakania (Blue) Placemat
The designer's late grandma and mum spoke very good Malay. They were also the tough ones who worked really hard to bring up the family. The Grandma's mum was a Peranakan, though he knew very little about his great grandma, but he suspect that their steely determination to raise the family well during the tough days was influenced by her. This Peranakania design with the Phoenix sitting on the peony garden is a celebration and tribute to these great women in his life.
