kristang

Kristang 

The Kristang are a creole ethnic group of people mixed Portuguese and Malaccan decent based in Malaysia and Singapore. People of this ethnicity have, besides Portuguese,a strong Dutch heritage, as well as some British, Malay, Chinese and Indian heritage due to intermarriages, which is common among the Kristang.

The creole group arose in Malacca (Malaysia) between the 16th and 17th centuries, when the city was a port and base of the Portuguese Empire. Some descendants speak a distinctive Kristang language or Malacca Portuguese, a creole based on Portuguese. Today the government classifies them as Portuguese Eurasians.

The Kristang community still has cultural and linguistic continuities with today’s Portugal, especially with the Minho region, from where many early settlers emigrated. The Kristang continue to hold some church services in Portuguese, and Malaysians, including themselves, often refer to the community as “Portuguese”. 


Tony Fernandes, the CEO of Air Asia, is one of the examples of the notable Kristang people in Malaysia. And Sorry if the traditional clothes are incorrect. I draw based on what i found on google.

(I actually posted this on DA a year ago… but i’m no longer active on that site)

Negaraku
Tanah tumpahnya darahku
Rakyat hidup
bersatu dan maju

Selamat Hari Merdeka everyone! I was contemplating if I should finish and post this since this weekend’s outcome was positive (compared to my cynical projection a few days back), but nonetheless we all have a long way to go and thus decided to finish it.

In recent times, I feel we may all have forgotten the importance of our anthem’s first verse. ‘Rakyat hidup bersatu dan maju’… United and progressive. We may have different backgrounds, skin colour, whatever– but inside we are all the same: we bleed the same red as our bunga raya, we were born on this land and to many of us, Malaysia is home. She is a beautiful land, rife with many natural resources and a diverse range of beautiful people. Out of all these and through the tides of time, through a mixture of all the colliding cultures we have quite a number of unique things we can call our own, like Peranakan and Serani/Kristang people/culture for instance.

TBH the hope that I had for my countrymen to put aside certain differences has been very dismal. I love my homeland, but I haven’t been the most positive about it especially with all the hooha after GE13. Why have we all become so petty, so blind, forgetting that we’ve been destroying what our forefathers have fought SO hard for? Do you not want a better future for ourselves, our children? Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of moving elsewhere again, but there is also a reluctance because this is my home and I certainly don’t see myself as a citizen of another place, somehow. And then Bersih4 happened. I am proud that it had a positive outcome, and even if you did not participate for various reasons, I am sure you too would want those in power to realise that you’re done with them screwing around with us and get their act together.

We share our lives under this perfect sky, the sun sometimes too warm on our backs but it’s a warmth that’s familiar and comforting.
We sing the same anthem, eat the same food. We all love a good teh tarik. I hope that from here on out, just as in the past and for the future, we choose to be united and make our country progress forward. For the sake of leaving them a safe future where they can grow up in and be good people. No gostan-ing ok? Langkah depan je.

Remember: Rakyat hidup bersatu dan maju.

Hey everyone! So recently I hit a huge milestone and reached 1k followers! Thank you all so much. I’ve been meaning to make this follow forever for awhile now but I was busy with my classes and all. So here it finally is! My follow forever. This is really long because I follow such a variety of hockey fans from so many teams. And yes I made the two pictures. The collage was a bit hard but I made it so if you steal it I know :O Once again, I tried to include everyone I enjoy talking to, reblogging and liking from, and different fans. If I did not include you on here then maybe you changed your URL or I don’t talk to you much. If that’s the case then do come talk to me. So anyways here it is!

Types of curries in singapore

Curry is one of singapore’s most favourite food items.  It is enjoyed by people of all cultures and religions, and it is also found in many variants, each of them loved by many. Hence, here are most (if not all) curries in Singapore. 

South Indian curry : It is one of the cheapest types of curry and modified to the taste of locals.  These types of curry are more inclined towards being a saucy stew that has meat and vegetables like potato which makes it suitable as a one course meal with rice or different types of bread. Examples: Nasi briyani and roti prata respectively.

Malay curries: They are usually thicker and are more of stews, usually filled with meat and vegetables. They also filled with crushed and blended strong tasting ingredients like lemongrass and shallots, saffron, coconut milk,almond . Malay curries spiciness levels varies on the chef, and there is no definitive spicy or non-spicy curry. Examples they used in : beef rendang, sayeur lodeh (veggie curry)respectively

Chinese Curry: Chinese curry is a soupy-er mixture of malay and South Indian curry in terms of taste. However, chinese curry tends to be more simple, instead of a strong spice flavour, chinese curry feels more meaty in flavour, with coconut milk. It is also not as spicy as the other two and more lighter in colour. Examples is curry fish head and satay bee hoon 

Eurasian Kristang curry: (Devil’s curry)The real name of this dish is “debal curry”. It is flavoured with candlenuts, galangal and vinegar from the Eurasian Kristang culinary tradition in Singapore and Malacca, Malaysia. There is no coconut milk used, instead, vinegar is added to make the curry tangy and appetising. The traditional recipe uses roast pork. However, the modern-day combination of chicken with roast pork balances the dish well
