On Malay Dressing
Explanation:
Dear Sumaiyah
The following link may help you:
http://www.pointpub.com/kampungnet/dress.html

You will find pictures there and learn that 'baju kurung' is the name for dress worn by women or that 'the sarong kebaya ' was the rage of the 1960s.

[For another instance of dress, see http://www.wpi.edu/~cel/photog/bum_putera.html]

Possibly, if you wish to conduct some research into the matter, you could know more from say, sources like films which deal with the region. One good example might be The Bridge on the River Kwai, a classic film by the renowned David Lean. 'Sarong' in any case is a Malay dress for women. You could do searches on the subject in some search engines.

Also a search on "traditional malay dressing" on www.looksmart.com would yield good results.

Best wishes
