Publisher: Epigram Books

Winner of Singapore Book Awards 2018, Best Middle Grade/Young Adult Title

Why do Malays use “bin” and “binte” in their names? Why are there two Hari Rayas? Why do women cover their heads? We provide the answers—and useful tips as well—to some of the most-asked questions young Singaporeans have about the Malay community, including why green is special to Malays.

Why Do Malays Avoid Pork? is part of a series of four illustrated handbooks, each with 20 questions and answers to promote understanding of the different races and cultures in Singapore.
