A Nyonya Dance

Tourism Melaka

Hello there! This video is one of my favourite video in my collections. I take this video at Hang Tuah Mall in commemoration Melaka Tourism Street Carnival 2007 on 1st June 2007. All the dancers are from Briged Seni Melaka.

The Nyonya Dance is an animated piece showing lissom "nyonyas"(Straits born chinese ladies) wearing the traditional "kebaya sarong" (an embroidered form fitting blouse teamed with a batik tight skirt) out for a stroll with colourful umbrellas carrying the "bakul siah" ( a small gift basket). I hope all my readers enjoying this unique video. Have fun and bye!

Warm Regards,
Tourism Melaka
