A teacher in Malaysia dressed up in traditional costumes in her online classes to keep her students engaged.

In a Mashable report, Nancy Maria went viral when images of her in traditional Melanau bridal wear circulated social media.

“It’s not easy teaching online but I’m trying hard to enjoy and savour each moment,” Maria said.

On Facebook, the former beauty queen wore a red, black, and gold outfit with an intricate headpiece of gold and flowers.

“Today I’m wearing the traditional Melanau women’s bridal dress from Sarawak,” her caption starts.

“This is my own traditional costume, which I intended to wear during independence month but didn’t get to do because of COVID-19.”

Furthermore, Teacher Maria also donned elaborate Malay costumes such as the Dusun Tatana and Ngepan Iban from Sabah for her online classes.

On most occasions, Maria teaches the Malaysian national language, Bahasa Melayu, at Merbau High School.

If there’s one thing that 2020 deprived us of, it’s learning in the safe confines of the classroom.

So hats off to Nancy Maria for making learning fun by highlighting the diversified cultures and traditions of Malaysia.
