For 6 years + 5 years of schools, I've never worn uniform that was bought from a shop. My mother sewn it from bits and and according to my preferences. No pocket, seamed neck and fab cotton. Everything was hand-picked and hand-made. The traditional sewing machine that needs both of feet to move it. Not easy though.
Rain or shine, poor or rich, sick or healthy, busy or not..every year, at the beginning of school, two sets of baju & kain kurung, freshly iron and made with love.If it is not love, I don't know what else.
This is how cool my mum is.
O God, I miss her everything.
