Why do Malays use “bin” and “binte” in their names? Why are there two Hari Rayas? Why do women cover their heads? We provide the answers — and useful tips as well — to some of the most-asked questions young Singaporeans have about the Malay community, including why green is special to Malays.

Why Do Malays Avoid Pork? is part of a series of four illustrated handbooks, each with 20 questions and answers to promote understanding of the different races and cultures in Singapore.

Suitable for ages 7 and above.

Read if you: realise you don't know the answer to the title question.
