A YOUNG family whose matching Hari Raya outfits all had a Hello Kitty motif drew the attention of many people at Cameron Highlands, Harian Metro reported.
Many visitors there on the fifth day of Hari Raya asked Syed Muhammad Shah Hasif Syed Othman, wife Fatin Syazwani Ishak and son Syed Muhammad Nouie Jaeden El-Alawi to take pictures with them.
According to Syed Muhammad Shah Hasif, he stitched the outfits using bedsheets.
“Apart from holidaying here, my wife and I planned to come here to take pictures during Hari Raya as it is not often that we get to wear matching clothes.
“Even though it is made from bedsheets, we are comfortable wearing them, plus the cool weather here (in Cameron’s) allows us to do so.
“We did not anticipate other people wanting to take pictures with us,” he said, adding that some people even thought their clothes were bridal outfits.
Earlier, it was reported that Syed Muhammad Shah Hasif garnered a lot of attention when he uploaded a video on TikTok of his family wearing outfits made from curtain material on the first day of Hari Raya.
