Malacca

Mask from Malacca

Before we even realize, it’s another month and time for another souvenir from my treasure box ! 😀

If you were to see souvenirs at my place, you’d find different cultures from different countries, showcased around in abundance, collected over past many many years. They vary in size, shape, color and texture. They speak of different stories and histories. And sometimes they remind me of the moment when they were bought !

Baba = boy
Nyonya = girl
