Spotted in Malaysia

The notice for safe travel on escalators is uniquely Malaysian: mommy in baju kurong with little girl with a ribbon in her hair.

According to Wikipedia, Baju Kurung is a Malay traditional dress loosely translated as “enclosed dress”. I love its graceful looks. I like it even better when Chinese ladies in Malaysia also wear baju kurung to work. That was in the 90s. Seated at the lobby of an office block watching ppl go by for lunch today, sadly, I only saw the usual boring suits, shirts, pants n dresses among women of all races. It’s a shame.
