      Miss Universe Malaysia’s Nyonya-inspired outfit wins Best National Costume

      Monday, 09 Dec 2019


      KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 9 — Miss Universe Malaysia Shweta Sekhon was voted Best National Costume at the 68th Miss Universe 2019 pageant in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States.

      The costume was inspired by the Peranakan or Baba Nyonya community’s rich bridal traditions and was aptly named ‘A Peranakan Indulgence’.

      When asked by host Steve Harvey about her costume, Shweta said Nyonya people are descendants of “mixed marriage between the Malays and the Chinese”.

      “The wings here define the tail of the goldfish which they believe is a sign of prosperity.”

      Weighing a hefty 28 kilogrammes, the costume features songket, Nyonya batik and trays of colourful Nyonya delights such as onde-onde, kueh koci, ang ku and kueh talam.

      It was designed by Taiping-born fashion designer Carven Ong, who is known and loved for his bridal creations since 1991.

      “Oh my God, I really can’t believe,” exclaimed Ong when contacted by Malay Mail.

      Ong said he received the good news from Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation national director Datin Elaine Daly over a phone call.

      Ong’s creations can also be seen in the 2018 rom-com hit Crazy Rich Asians.

      Peranakans are descended from Chinese settlers who arrived in the Malay Archipelago between the 15th and 17th centuries

  3. Peranakans are descended from Chinese settlers who arrived in the Malay Archipelago between the 15th and 17th centuries...No well before that There was already chinese settlement in Chih Tu, Langkasuka and Srivijaya both when center of Srvijaya administration was in Grahi and Palembang.

    Dont you ever wonder why all kueh nyonya are also parts of many assortments of kueh Kelantan-Pattani which is still easily availabe there, but you cannot find some o the better kueh Kelantan-Pattani in Nyonya communities.

    The warappings of Pattani_Kelantan kueh especilaly those of glutinous rice based is very intricate, beautiful and artfully done...and compare that with chinese dumplings can make a simple guess where this kueh originate.......furthermore you will not get to find kueh nyoya look-alike in modern china

    Like now in those ancient days also chiinese love cities, thats why when Chih Tu,Langkasuka, Srivijaya and Pattani Besar disintegrate they migrate to Mlacca
