Ju Xiang is born into a big Peranakan family where her mum is a mistress. During the World War, Ju Xiang is tortured and both she and her husband die, leaving behind their 8-year-old daughter Yue Niang. After the war, Yue Niang's maternal relatives who ran away to England to seek refuge during wartime return home. Yue Niang then leads the life of her mother – always discriminated, beaten up and tortured. Yue Niang is then sold to a butcher, Liu Yi Dao. However, Yue Niang's strong personality impresses Liu Yi Dao and they become sworn siblings instead. Yue Niang decides to choose her own path in life. She begins learning how to run a business and she manages to overcome the odds and save her declining family business. Sadly, her love life has yet to begin a new chapter with no news about her lover, Chen Xi.

I enjoyed the sets and the seeing some of the old country. Didn't like the ending much. Thought some bits were over the top. But all in all very watchable.

awesome awesome drama! maybe i have a soft spot for this cos my grandparents are of nyonya decendants as well..but they dun live in melaka..they're from penang and ipoh..but owh well..XD ..

 

the story is awesome! my mum and i were marathoning this drama..we both cried our eyes out when juixiang and her jap hubby died leaving lil yueniang all alone...

 

i really hate that zhenzhu's character ..not to mention meiyu and her unstable jealousy issues....and tat chen sheng! gosh after juixiang and yueninang fell of the ship all he can do is drink and be merry....but at times where soberness calls..he's all serious and right in the mind..i find that a bit unbelievable..poor yuzhu..she's teh nicest huang family member but she has to suffer such unfortunate fate...sigh...........

 

jeanette did an awesome job! salute her...

This serie is very interesting. I hardly know anything about the Peranakan culture and it's cuisine. But I had learnt to make kuih lapis and kuih klepon from an indonesian friend. Because of the long time preparing for those kuihs, I had not make them for years.

Since I have been watching Little Nonya, It remembers me the wonderful fragrance and taste of those kuihs. And I have starting make them again.

Interesting plot and surprising ending.

A bunch of Peranakan culinary which is alike with Indonesian Chinese food.
