The Cheongsam Challenge: Day 20

CC20 - 12 DEC 2017

Good day to everyone, in eleven days it will be Christmas and much is to be done in preparation for it.

Christmas is a time to stop and reflect on the hope for PEACE on Earth and how one person can make a difference!

It is easy to start with oneself. We need to be at peace with ourselves first, then make peace within our families and with our relatives, friends and neighbours. Like a stone thrown in a pond, it creates a ripple in the water, which will then spread far and wide.

So on Day 20 of Suzanne’s Cheongsam Challenge, I wish everyone a meaningful contribution towards bringing about peace to all around us.

My cheongsam for today is fashioned from fine silvery fabric with mirror circlets embroidered into the hem area which spreads out into the top half of the outfit. The scalloped edges with slivers of fringe finish the sleeves and hem delicately.  Naturally, the lining of white seemed to be the most appropriate colour for this cheongsam.

My pearl and coral accessories and self-beaded red sandals add just the right contrast to the ensemble. At 93, I think it is alright to wear a bit of glitz in the day too!

Did someone say white-red-green are the colours of Christmas? Well yes, but to me, the WHITE represents purity of heart while the RED is for the passion to do good, and the GREEN represents freshness and renewal/growth!

Merry Christmas and may there be PEACE in your hearts.

God bless.
Suzanne
