I’m an only child and was brought up with very few extended family members to mingle with, so nothing prepared me for marrying into a huge Peranakan family. Other than a language barrier (my mother-in-law speaks only Baba Malay), it was challenging for me to deal with other relatives too. Thanks for the enlightening read, The Daughter-in-Law’s Survival Guide (July 2014). How I wish someone had advised me about all that earlier.
