In the mood for cheongsam

Cheongsam that I made few years back

Chinese New Year is just couple of weeks away. Although it is not necessary to wear a
cheongsam during Chinese New Year but at times, wearing one makes me feel more Chinese. Sometimes, people tend to label me as 'banana' - yellow on the outside but white inside. The term 'banana' refers to Chinese who are sort of Western-ised. I studied in a Malay medium school instead of a Chinese medium school. Therefore, I do not know how to read and write Chinese. Strange? Maybe.

I love cheongsam as it has subtle sexiness; without revealing loads of skin. It is tight fitting with high slits on both sides. It allures the mind to imagine... ehm..better stop here. I think you got the picture. If you want to see more beautiful cheongsams, I would suggest to watch 'In the mood for love' by Wong Kar-Wai. Maggie Cheung looks gorgeous in the all the cheongsams.

I can smell the weekend! :-)


  1. wahh ur sewing so darn good!! ;D it's so difficult to sew on silk and silk-like material leh! but the pic of ur cheongsam looks so flawless!
