Salak Yom

When it comes to paying careful attention to details, one of the finest places to do so is the Asian Civilisations Museum of Singapore.

Salak Yom was originally a rite of passage of young unmarried women. Her skills in preparing for the decoration show her sense of art, capability, and thus her readiness to get married.

And those little pieces made me stand in awe.
