Hundreds of nyonyas and babas descended on the Church of the Holy Family for the annual Peranakan Mass to usher in the Lunar New Year on Feb 9.

The event was a colourful affair as participants donned the sarong kebaya for women or baju lokcuan for the men.

The Mass, celebrated by Frs Damian De Wind and Donatien Davaine, was held in the Peranakan patois.

A Peranakan altar, adorned with offerings such as bananas, oranges and Peranakan cakes, was also placed in front of the main altar.
