Jawi Peranakan, published in Singapore, was one of the earliest Malay newspapers in the region. In 1914, the Malay edition of the Malaya Tribune was launched, Lembaga Melayu. Its first editor, Mohamed Eunos Abdullah, was a prominent Singapore Malay leader. He had previously been editor of Utusan Melayu, the Malay edition of the Singapore Free Press. Although Utusan Melayu ceased publication in 1921, it reappeared in 1939. Among its founders was Yusof bin Ishak, who later became Singapore’s first Yang di-Pertuan Negara (head of state) and then President of the Republic of Singapore.
The Peranakan community in Singapore also published its own newspaper, Bintang Timor, initiated by prominent Peranakan Chinese Sir Song Ong Siang. However, it ceased publication in 1895.
