Think 'batik' on Thursdays, says Dr Wee on Dewan Rakyat initiative to boost local fabric

KUALA LUMPUR: Among the many efforts to recognise and promote Malaysian batik on a worldwide platform is the decision to allow MPs to wear batik in the Dewan Rakyat on Thursdays, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Ayer Hitam MP said in a Facebook post on Thursday (May 25) that when Malaysians think of Thursday, they should also think of batik.

"Not just wearing it but also promoting it as well. Thursday is the day for batik attire in the Dewan Rakyat as part of efforts to recognise and promote batik to the world," the MCA president said.

Sharing a snippet of his day, Dr Wee said before entering the Dewan Rakyat this morning (May 25), he bumped into Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

"He (Anwar) also just remembered that it is Thursday today, our day to wear batik in Dewan Rakyat," he shared.
