Salang Design - Embroidery Patch [Ah Zhua Ho]
Salang Design is launching an exclusive series of patches for George Town Festival, one of Southeast Asia's biggest arts festivals, based in Penang.
Malaysia has its very own slang that comes from its diversity in race. And only in Malaysia, we can speak a full sentence with a few combination of different languages/slang, yet we never fail to understand each other. Inspired by this uniqueness, we created the series: "What's your slang?"
As we know, most of the Penangites speak Hokkien. Inspired by its culture, we've used the Hokkien word "an zhua ho", meaning "What to do? / How?" as our first design. In Malaysian slang it will be "Eh, How ah?".
Eg.: Eh, restaurant closed already, an zhua ho?
(Hey, restaurant closed already, now what?)
Combining the vintage packaging feels which we can rarely find now, here we turned it into our very own unique patch, just for you!
Patch Size: 6.5cm(H) x 4.5 cm(W)
