#BuySingLit, Read Our Stories: Understanding Singaporeans — Why Do Malays Avoid Pork?

This post is part of our series for the duration of the Circuit Breaker measures to shine a spotlight on SingLit books that we find to be uniquely encouraging. If you already own the book, perhaps you might want to dig out your copy to read again. If you don’t already have it, we’ll drop a link to our online catalogue below.

Over the next two weeks, we’re spotlighting books that celebrate our Malay friends and neighbours. As part of our Circuit Breaker series, we hope these books will remind us to be kind, mindful, and encouraging of each other during this Ramadan period. Happy reading!
