About that dress, the answer is …

Thank you all for participating in ‘One question‘. We should have enjoyable postings like that more often.

Okay, now to provide the answer to the poser: “Is she wearing the same or different dress?”

Since both photos were snapped at public functions, we can verify that they were taken at different times.

Pix A

Teo Nie Ching was reported in the society pages of The Star (20 Dec 2008) as attending a special performance of Mamma Mia! hosted by the developer SP Setia for VIPs and corporate bigwigs.

She is photographed with (from left) the then Penang Deputy Chief Minister Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin, DAP high flyer Bukit Bendera MP Liew Chin Tong and SP Setia group MD cum CEO Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin.


Pix B

This photo with Zairil was on the occasion of Kit Siang’s 70th birthday party on 27 Feb 2011 at the Shah Alam Convention Centre.

Mekyam was spot on:

“The one in the smaller picture seems lighter in shade, looks shinier and more creased [perhaps of crushed satin] and do not have the two rows of pipings(?) found on the one in the larger picture. she must like the style and the shade.”


Correct about the horizontal piping thingamajig (women would know about this tailoring feature, the men perhaps not).

And probably correct that the wearer must like the style and the shade. An astute woman is Mekyam.

Another commenter MalayPrincess noted, “totally different dress, above one is like baldu material, below is satin???”

And for a guy, not a bad effort from Fakin’ Fake Calvin: “Different. You can see with the see through material in the second pic what appears to be a design of sorts.”

The “design of sorts” is probably piping as Mekyam has suggested.

And now … for the denouement.


The one (above) with the piping is a greyish blouse which she teamed with a black skirt — a two-piece ensemble.

Whereas the one she wore with the white Hindi movie scarf is a gown, possibly full-length or perhaps calf-length. But whatever it is, you can see that in the photo at the top of the page, the silvery dress is a one-piece.

The photo gallery for Kit Siang’s birthday party can be viewed here.

So the answer is: Different dresses

As to why this posting came up, kita akan sambung cerita esok.

    Dang!!! I took an internet break from the beer & the band to see what’s this all about.

    Btw, the other half commented that the 3rd pic was a bit “weird” as it seems to “hang” a bit lower than the 2nd pic. To quote her very words, “Hang an inch lower & she’d start worrying about protecting her modesty…”

      No lah. Not intentional. Getting stuck in federal highway traffic going out for dinner gave me a headache. Hence not up to writing last night.

    Helen – can we expect that you will do the same analysis, but this time about LGE’s hair, before and after, the ‘baling’ incident by his wife?

    • 9. Helen Ang  |  March 23, 2013 at 2:36 pm

      ROTFL. Yes, let’s intersperse with some fun stuff. All politics and no play will make this a dull blog.

      • 10. Setem  |  March 23, 2013 at 8:02 pm

        I remember Jocelyn of STAR even mentioned about LGE’s new hair style (probably influenced by Rainbow) in her column. :)
