Some words remain etched in my brain and the word Fuchsia is one in the list. I first heard of this colour from one of my older cousin sisters as she was describing the colour of her wedding sari, the manthrakodi – the colourful sari the bride wears for the wedding reception. The bride wears white for the church ceremony and a colourful manthrakodi gifted from the groom’s side for the wedding reception afterwards. It was a beautiful bright and rich colour, combined with the gold jewellery, my cousin looked resplendent.
Magenta would be a close synonym for the colour, it sounds more Indian; fuchsia has a western feel. It’s a festive colour and one of my favourites. And then I came across this fuchsia capri at the Wills Lifestyle shop. Too bright !? So what, it’s for the holidays 😄
And so this remains a favourite item for the holidays; I love the colour 💕
The place in the above pic is pretty evident; where in the world will you find a building modelled after a fruit !?
What fruit !? The Durian said our guide, the dome shaped building in the background with spikes on the outside was inspired by the Durian; the national fruit of Singapore 🇸🇬 👉 Singapore Day #3: City tour & Sentosa
Till next post, take care !!
