The Mines shopping mall in Malaysia recent held their annual Merdeka Costume Fashion Contest. It’s a flag-inspired fashion show, where children pay tribute to the Malaysian states. Part of the contest involves singing, dancing or performing some other talent.
The photo at the top shows the girl who won. She’s 11 years old, and wore all 14 state flags of Malaysia on her hat and gigantic hibiscus sewn onto her gown. Isn’t that lovely?
The little girl below was the youngest contestant. She’s 5 years old and is dancing to country music in this photo. Very cute!
