Babas being berated for pointing their feet at respectable senior Nyonya! Aiyoh, Tak seronoh!
Attending the Peranakan convention in Singapore I had with my stealth scribing kit! Z-fold 4 piece 2x1 foot board, a few flip charts and my Neuland marker pens. Unplanned and unannounced I decided to scribe flipchart size from my seat 3/4 way back in the hall. The flip chart I folded in thirds. And my backing board I used as a 2footx2 foot square.
Above you see my favourite moment captured. And below...

My completed chart for session 1/3
Popped my chart on stage for fun
Language and identity
Is Baba language essential for being Peranakan?

|Snapshots of the perpetuators|
Akin to Alcoholic Anonymous, some one quipped; the way they serially confess at each meeting their addiction to randomly making marks on walls.
That's what's it's all about! deconstructing a Chinese word that comprises grain, field and together.

The final chart
Normally reknown for the high decibel output/shrieks of laughter, this group as densely silent during the wire art session: each intently focused on what they were doing. It was very rewarding to notice that sense of inner peace and achievement as the aluminum wire took shape. Although it was individual work, the wire art also fostered a sense of togetherness and connectiveness.
Look out for announcement of SGGR meetup December 2015 edition.
