Sirri na Pesse, which loosely translates to 'Honour and Pride' in the Bugis language, features the history and development of the Malay-Bugis community in Singapore, many of whom can trace their roots through seminal historical developments in the Malay world during the 18th to 20th centuries. Whether of royal descent, or born to seafarers or merchants, the local Malay-Bugis community continues to maintain their distinct cultural heritage whilst establishing modern Bugis identities unique to their Singapore experience.
