Colorful Islamic Malay Women

I'm used to seeing the somewhat drab garments that Islamic women wear in the Middle East, but the colorful garb of their Far Eastern sisters blew my mind and made me glad my camera wasn't loaded with black & white film. These ladies were stolling the park between the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center and the Petronas Towers just after sunset. Judging from the nametags around their neck, they'd probably been in the KL Convention Center behind them. (Minolta Maxxum/Dynax 9, 300mm lens, Fuji Velvia 100 film).
