Nyonya Beaded Shoes

Many people ask me how the wedding preps are going. Almost everywhere I go, I get this, “So how are things with the wedding?” Well, to be honest, I don’t quite know. I haven’t had the time to sit down with my wedding planner (who is and has been in charge of things since March this year – yay!).

rif’s mother started making my Nyonya beaded shoes — the process looks painfully difficult. I think I would go blind if I were to ever attempt such a feat. Oh well, I’m lucky she’s fond of me and wants to do it. :)


This is only the start, but it looks beautiful to me. Anyone knows where I can get stiletto heels to attach the beaded artwork on? I don’t want to wear the chunky, low-heeled shoes most Nyonya shoes come with. Would be great if Peranakans out there could share some tips!

    You gotta go to Hong Kong Shoe Store, 177 Muntri St, Penang. They are doing my beaded slippers, and you can pick whatever height stiletto you want. They are REALLY not that expensive, especially compared to other designer shoes. I think maybe a couple hundred ringit at most.
