The Hinghwa clan in Singapore used to have their vibrant activities centred around their enclave in and around the Sungei Road and Weld Road area. However, since the resettlement of the enclave, the once-vibrant people and their exciting cultural festivals seem to have vanished. The aim of this book is to address the issue before an interesting culture and a dynamic people disappear completely.

The book is divided into five parts. Part One discusses the origin of the Chinese, taking us through Chinese civilisation and the relevant dynasties. Part Two discusses the origin of the Hinghwa people, taking us through the highs and lows of the Hinghwa in ancient China. Part Three discusses the diaspora and renaissance of the Hinghwa people in the Nanyang and how they triumphed over many adversities. Part Four tells the stories of the pioneers and entrepreneurs. Finally, Part Five covers the culture, cuisine, and attractions of Puxian.
