Things to do in Melaka
This is a picture of a collection of colorful batiks in the shop where I bought two kebayas. The shop is located just before you reach the "red" buildings in town. This wasn't the usual shop.
"Mana Kak X?" I asked.
" Dia tak bukak lagi...dia masak dulu. Saya makan kat luar " answered the lady I bought the kebaya from. As I was her first customer for the day, she gave me a 5 ringgit discount.
The kebayas vary in size slightly. Different people cutting the pattern means different sizes. So two size "SS" may be slightly different in length and width. The kebaya was for mum. I'm still a little thick around the waist for my ole kebaya and I refuse to upgrade a size.
I wore a Cheong Sam for the day. Factoring the journey from town to resort, I'd decided early on that I may not have enough time to change before the talk. So I walked about Jonker street in a cheong sam and slippers. I've not been so well dressed before:) Never again.
