The Baba Nyonya of Penang are descendants of Chinese people who settled on the northern coast of the Malay peninsula even before the founding of Penang by Captain Francis Light. In this collection of articles, I attempt to help you improve your understanding of them and at the same time, clear some of the misunderstanding that may have been generated about them.
