07:50 02/05/2014 Why are these guys wearing long colorful skirts? The first question ran to our mind after been greeted with sweet Mingalabar upon our exit at Yangon airport. The cab driver wears the same attire like everyone else. Along the way we saw Burmese young and old, women but mostly men wrap their lower bodies with that piece of cloth. Have they dislike pants? Yeah, silly it may sound. We’re so naive, baffled and same time curious. We go beyond than just looking at it. An impulse triggered us doning longyi like a Burmese at Bagan.
Get inside the longyi.
Fold the cloth according to one’s height. Open it wide
There you go, a well tight longyi.
