I wanted a dress to do the traditional visiting rounds in, for Chinese New Year.
This one is in auspicious red and orange colours, so it’s very New Years-y indeed, never mind the Darth!! It was great, because all the non-traditional younger folk recognized him, and all the traditional old folk just thought it was a nice red auspicious dress. Hah!
Last pic shows the dress in action at First Aunt’s house. I’m holding two oranges – the word for them (‘kum’) is very similar-sounding to the one for ‘gold’ in dialect. Yes, the Chinese have money on their mind always!
More details and lots more pics on my blog.
