#Kim Choo's Kitchen Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Little Nyonya Experience at Rumah Kim Choo
Playing Little Nyonya @kimchookuehchang awhile ago. I’ve always want to do this for the longest time and finally managed to visit this place. Exploring their Peranakan kebaya collection. It’s really beautiful and i really love intricate detail on every kebaya.
Everytime i wear the traditional costume even though is not my own country costume i feel so proud, i feel like blending in to the local culture. Similar like when i wear Ao Dai in Vietnam and Hanbok in Korea. Even locals were praising us for wearing their traditional costume.
Step into the upper gallery of the Rumah Kim Choo shophouse in East Coast Road. Greeting you by a sight that evokes the feel of an old Peranakan house, or “rumah” in Malay.
