My mom and family are involve in SUKMA XIII Melaka 2010

I called my mom yesterday and she told me that she’s involve in the coming SUKMA XIII 2010 that will be held in Melaka from the 10th-19th June 2010!
She’s representing the Peranakan (Baba Nyonya) community and will be walking in her pride Nyonya Kebaya during the Opening Ceremony I think.
She’s not the only one. My cousins and nieces are involve as well! ENVY! I so wanna be there. Not to participate but at least to photograph them in their best Nyonya Kebayas :(
Pic ‘stolen’ from my cousin Carrie-Ann’s FB
SUKMA XIII 2010 will be held during the school holidays. My task now is.. to plead, cry and beg Darling to bring me back to Melaka then… Darling!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can ah???????? Please??????
