In Greek mythology, Pandora's box is the box carried by Pandora that contained all the evils of mankind — greed, vanity, slander, lies, envy, pining — and hope.
After Prometheus' theft of the secret of fire, Zeus ordered Hephaestus to create Pandora as part of the punishment for mankind. Pandora was given many seductive gifts from Aphrodite, Hermes, Charites, and Horae (according to Works and Days). Prometheus warned his brother Epimetheus to not accept any gifts from Zeus in fear of further reprisal. Epimetheus did not listen and accepted Pandora. Zeus instructed Pandora to not open the box but she was too curious and opened it. After the jar was opened all of the evils escaped and, after the lid was replaced, only hope remained in the jar.

*The first Chinese to settle in the straits, primarily in and around Malacca, gradually adopted elements of Malaysian culture and intermarried with the Malaysian community. Known as babas and nonyas, they eventually produced a synthetic set of practices, beliefs, and arts, combining Malay and Chinese traditions in such a way as to create a new culture
