The Little Nyonya & Rempah Udang

Saper tengok citer ni? Angkat tangan!

Aku start minat tengok citer ni sejak beberapa minggu yang lepas. DAh lama jugak sebenarnya aku tak amik port drama - drama cina ni since busy jer lately ni kan tapi drama bersiri The Little Nyonya ni dah pun meragut tumpuan aku setiap petang. Heh Sesuai ker meragut? Bukan aku jer... Dengan Cik Kiah sekali aku hasut tengok citer ni. Hehe.

Yelah.. Demi anak manja dia ni, kenalah Cik Kiah buat - buat bahagia layan citer cina. Padahal sepatah haram dia tak paham. So anak dia nilah yang akan terangkan sinopsisnya.

Citer ni start pukul 6 petang - 7 petang setiap hari kecuali hari jumaat kalau tak silap. Sila betulkan aku kalau aku salah. Memandangkan aku masuk kerja pukul 8 and kenkadang aku balik pun ngam - ngam pukul 6 so sampai jer kat rumah, aku terus jer landing depan TV sambil remote dikawal sepenuhnya oleh aku - sila abaikan bau bacin tu ok!  Kalau Cik Kiah yang dapat remort dulu pun aku paksa gak bukak citer tu. Punyalah kejam angat aku ni kan! Huahuahua.

Owh citer ni pasal ape? Maafla luper nak citer ngan korang ya. Excited bebeno... Hehe. Kisahnya cenggini...

The story spans over 70 years, from the 1930s till the present day.

During the World War, Juxiang is injured and both she and her husband die, leaving behind their 8-year-old daughter.

The orphaned Yueniang eventually walks to her grandfather's house on her own. Her grandmother rejoices for her presence. Under the supervision of her grandmother, she learns to cook Peranakan dishes and sewing. She grows up looking exactly like her mother and is exceptionally beautiful.
