Most of you guys would probably have your Baju Raya (malay traditional dress) ready by now. we're just going to use previous year's. I'm pretty sure by now people are in their Hari Raya mood. busy preparing for Eid, buying/selling cookies, making hampers (i so so miss it), painting the front gate, putting up new curtains, radio stations are playing Raya songs... at times like this, i miss Malaysia more than ever. after reading today's NST online, i can almost hear the buzz at Jalan Masjid India.
We measured Aidan up for his first Baju Melayu today. Aidan's Mak Cu (my aunt) will help find him one back home. this is going to be Aidan's 2nd Eid. we cant wait to get a parcel from back home containing Aidan's first baju melayu, and hopefully, together with my nephew Ferran's too!
These was what we wrote in an email to Mak Cu earlier today, regarding Aidan's measurements (in Malay). dont be surprised! he's a growing boy!
Lengan to lengan - 26" to 27"
tengkok ke hemline baju - 15"
seluar - 18"
pinggang - 20"
leher - 12"
songkok - 19"
kain sampin - 11"
Hope there's one that fits him!
