Eh, isn't the kebaya terbalik liao?
Side note, that uncle is the grandfather of @leongsushan who told me he is the painter and artisan of Haw Par Villa.
Update: According to reader Dawn Marie Lee, "The kebaya maker is quite well-known and I enjoy his work. I spoke to him and has informed me that this piece is the very first he has made in this way as he is trying out something new. It was purpose made to be worn like this, with a V-neck at the back, fastened with a kerosang, and a high collar at the front (like a turtleneck blouse). He is someone who likes to innovate and try out new interpretations of the kebaya. He did say he recommended his traditional kebayas to this Russian couple but they preferred this look."
