Wedding invite

Chitty, also known as Indian Peranakans, is a distinctive group of Tamil people found mainly in Malacca and Singapore. Like other groups of Peranakans, the Chitty speak a Malay Patois, which is mixed with many Tamil loan words. The wedding invite here is historically significant, marking an important occasion in the community's life and is dated to the short time frame of the Second World War when Singapore was referred to as "Syonan". The dating follows the Japanese system, which is based on the years that the Emperor has been on the throne.
