History of The Persatuan Peranakan Baba Nyonya Kuala Lumpur & Selangor

The Persatuan Peranakan Baba Nyonya Kuala Lumpur & Selangor (PPBNKLS) is the newest association to join the fellowship of the Peranakan associations in Singapore, Malacca, Penang, Thailand and Australia. Its birth can be considered unusual as Kuala Lumpur was not part of the Straits Settlements. In the Malaysian context, the Baba and Nyonyas are no longer confined to the traditional strongholds of Malacca and Penang. Many have migrated to the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, mostly to further their education and to look for work. After 50 years of rapid economic development, the Klang Valley in Selangor is the largest economic conurbation in the country and also the home to two generations of the Peranakan community.

On 28 of July, 2008, the PPBNKLS was officially formed. The Association is headed by Dr. Lee Su Kim, an Associate Professor at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi, Selangor. She is the first Nyonya President of the Peranakan associations in Malaysia and Singapore, setting another precedent as all previous Presidents of the Peranakan associations in Malaysia and Singapore have been Babas.

The idea of forming a Kuala Lumpur chapter was first mooted by the late Doris Chee, a nyonya from Malacca, living in Kuala Lumpur. It was at the “World of the Peranakan Symposium” in February 2005 at Muzium Negara that the idea took off and became a reality. A Protem committee was initially formed, and after many meetings and very much a labour of love from a dedicated committee, the Association today has become a reality.

The logo of the PPBNKLS is the traditional Nyonya bakul siah, its slogan “ A Golden Heritage’. Its objectives are to practise, promote and to preserve the Peranakan culture, to create an awareness, to encourage and undertake research and to interact with other Peranakan communities. It is a non-profit organization. The PPBNKLS would certainly appreciate support in any way. Being in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, we hope to play a vibrant role in promoting our unique Peranakan heritage.
