Hello everyone! As promised in a video message late last year, I’ve had a website created – www.siakchinyoke.com – to give you more information about me and my books and also to (hopefully) answer some of the questions you’ve asked. There’s a page – Chye Hoon’s World – which is intended to help you explore the world my protagonist inhabited. As I’m continuing work on the Malayan Series, I’m afraid I’m only going to be able to populate this page very gradually; please bear with me…
Over time, I hope to include
- Images of old Ipoh, with a focus on places mentioned in The Woman who Breathed Two Worlds;
- Information about the cooking ingredients Chye Hoon would have used;
- Photographs of the other mouth-watering Malaysian dishes she prepared;
- A look at Nyonya attire, jewellery, shoes, practices and anything else you want to see!
Please take a few minutes to browse through the pages that are already up and let me know what you think! You can send a message via the website. I’d love to hear from you!
