Looking Good Traditionally - 1Malaysia Fashion

In Malaysia there are 3 main races, they are Malay, Chinese and Indian. Each race has its own traditional costume. As for the malays, we have Baju Melayu for the boys and Baju Kurung for the girls like myself. You can see me in one in my previous post about Eid.

My first Baju Kurung was a cotton one with tiny flowers. I had it on for my first Eid celebration when I was just around 9 months, I think.

My second one was a plain silver one with tiny details at the collar, made specially for Mak Lang Nur's wedding.


Tok Abah and Tok Mama bought a plain blue coloured one for me when we had tahlil for Atuk Kassim who passed away last year and my latest Baju Kurung was green, quite glamour-ish, with sequins and flowered details at the collar Mommy bought for Eid last year.

The traditional costume for Chinese girls are called Cheongsam and I have one too! It's pink and has flowers all over and I got it for my 1st birthday and just recently wore it to a wedding. Of course, I looked adorable in it!



Now, the traditional costume for Indian girls is called a Saree and I have yet to own one (hint, hint, Mommy...). It looks quite complicated to wear, though and I'm not sure if Mommy knows how to wear it, let alone wear it on me! So, I might have to wait until I'm a bit older and maybe get Mommy's friend, Aunty Uma to teach me how to wear a Saree. Owh, and she sells Saree online too, at www.indifashion.my.

Anyway, I think it's nice to be able to wear traditional costumes from different races and countries.
That reminds me, Dadda has worn a kilt before, haven't you, Dadda?
