Guests donned their Peranakan best for an evening of food and local tunes performed by violinists at The Intan, a Peranakan home museum, yesterday. The event, graced by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean and Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin, is part of Project Intan, a fund-raising initiative started in 2008 which seeks to support the Singapore Children’s Society this year. Through the OCBC TODAY Children’s Fund, children from distressed and broken families will be able to rebuild their lives through counselling and therapy programmes. PHOTOS: WEE TECK HIAN
