Lovely Nyonya Kebayas

Saw this Nyonya Kebayas in one of the shops on Melaka's Jonker Walk! Really attractive!
Nice colour combinations and the embroideries are so intricate!

"Nyonya Kebaya" is the name of these tops worn by Straits Chinese. These tops are worn with colourful sarongs (pareos).

I always love the designs of Nyonya Kebaya. And the baskets, tingkats and iron are good reminders of the past. Thanks for such a nice photo. And I love to stroll Jonker Street when I visit Malacca. :)

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
