My Hari Raya Dress
(Pahang, Malaysia )
Songket fabrics are famous in Malaysia, although they are quite expensive, and are usually produced by people in the east coast Malaysian states of Kelantan and Terengganu.
In the picture, I'm wearing a traditional baju kebaya dress and sarong made from songket fabrics.
I wore that during the first day of the last Hari Raya Aidil Fitri celebrations, and the photo was taken at my grandma's house, just after our group family photos.
Well, our family (parents and two brothers) wear traditional dresses only during festivals, and religious occasions.
Mum and I wear either the Baju Kurung or Baju Kebaya, and my Dad and brothers the Baju Melayu. We normally wear dress materials of the same colour as our family theme for each festival every year.
I also wear traditional clothes when I go for Malay weddings. Otherwise I only wear blouses and jeans ( my favourite everyday wear), even when attending my lectures at college.
Hope you like it. And I hope people from other countries show their dresses here too.
