Fashion Friday: Somewhere in Between India and Malaysia
At the streets of Jalan Masjid India (Indian Mosque Street)
My Taiwanese friend, Carolyn, was visiting for a few days so I took her around KL city.
We took the same Marketing paper last year in NZ.
I wanted to show her local spots filled with cultural elements instead of
bringing her to generic malls.
I love Carolyn's harem pants!
They're like a cross between Arabic and Indian harem pants.
She bought them from a boutique in Melbourne.
I'm tempted to have one tailored just like that but slightly longer.
Lunch: I ordered cheese naan, chicken tandoori and mango lassi
Carolyn had chicken briyani and the famous Malaysian teh tarik
This was a few days before the Hindu festival of Thaipusam (which by the way, took place yesterday) and we saw rows and rows of shops filled with traditional Indian clothes
Exotic glamour: I have a penchant for glittery Indian clothes and jewellery
Bollywood dresses for little girls. How cute are they?
This is what happens when you go out with a hijabi. You end up buying scarves!
We also stopped by the National Mosque and I prayed Asr there.
Malaysia is very multi-cultural and multi-religious, which is pretty cool.
I always love how peaceful it feels in a mosque
the Indian clothes [saree's, right?] look oh so glamorous! :)
Malaysia is definitely on my list of places to travel to! iA.
1. I LOVE your scarf! So pretty and you look absolutely stunning, masha'allah.
2. Looks like you did a great job of showing your friend around. When I visit a new place I would much rather check out the more cultural spots rather than the big tourist spots.
3. Bollywood dresses for girls = ADORABLE!
4. Great pictures! Now I really want to visit there :)
I agree with you on how peaceful it is in a mosque. I could stay in one all day!!
Smiley: Yeah, sarees! They were all so glam and pretty... even the affordable ones.
Jasmina: Well you know me, colours are important to me ;) Thanks for commenting!
Bitten: This is not even half of Indian Mosque Street. I didn't even take proper pics cos I was busy showing my friend around lol. I know what tourists wanna see cos often times I feel like a tourist in Malaysia myself =)
Esra: InshaAllah you'll love it here when you come someday!
Elisa: Aww thanks hun =) I love how the hijab complemented my outfit. And yes, I can sit in a mosque all day too... I can't quite explain the feeling.. it's like all my troubles go away.
Fida: Shukran Fida =)
RS: I'm sure there's a style of harem pants that will suit you really well... if you have curves like myself (ehem) then pick ones that are fitting towards the end, around the ankles.. and ones that don't have too much draping in the front:
