Foo's batik cheongsam a festive hit

KUALA TERENGGANU: Seams­tress Foo Moe Ngoo’s 1Malaysia contribution for Chinese New Year – using local batik to make the traditional cheongsam.

The 56-year-old mother of one wants to use the festive season to promote her “batik cheongsam” with Terengganu motifs.

“Among the fascinating characteristics of the cheongsam I am making are changes in style, motif and colour,” she said when met at her Jalan Bandar outlet here recently.
Foo’s RM39 (S$16) batik cheongsam is already proving to be a hit going by the orders received. The enterprising seamstress is planning to open outlets in the Klang Valley to capitalise on the batik cheongsam craze.
