Abstract: While studies on diasporic spaces in Singapore have been conducted on the Thai, Indian and Filipinosb diaspora, no significant research has examined the Malaysian Chinese community in Singapore with regards to their lived experiences as a migrant group of individuals in Singapore.The goal of this paper is to approach these Malaysian Chinese as migrants in a host society and to illuminate the construction of their identities and varied manners of adjusting to living in Singapore which has often been deemed as a b favourable and convenientb arena for them to settle in. The first half of the research which seeks to understand the respective conceptions of identity promulgated by these Malaysian Chinese and their varied abilities in adapting to living in Singapore will then facilitate the second half of the research which attempts to assess the importance and potentiality of diasporic spaces for each assemblage of Malaysian Chinese in Singapore.
