The word "Eurasian" generally refers to anyone of mixed European and Asian parentage. However, it was first coined by the British during their rule in India, to refer to descendants of a British and an Indian parent. The Eurasians in Singapore can trace their origins to various trading ports in the region where Europeans have settled, including Malacca, Penang, Bencoolen, Ceylon and Macau.
In this episode of Junior SG Adventures, we will embark on a learning journey to understand more about the Singapore Eurasian community.
