Photo Friday – Identity


Photo Friday – Identity []

Identity. Schools in Malaysia require uniforms. There is a strict
dress code which is enforced by prefects standing at the main gate. The
uniform is usually a blue pinafore with a white collared shirt for
females, while males wear a white collared shirt with green pants. The
footwear is limited to white shoes and socks and everyone has a visible
ID card attached their shirts, displaying the name, date of birth,
class, a photo and several other personal details. Personal effects
which break the homogeneous appearance are frowned upon. I had to wear
a bandage every day to cover up the tattoo on my wrist to comply with
school regulations during my time there. This photo was taken yesterday
afternoon at Methodist High School, Sibu (Sarawak) – my alma mater. I
was in 5S1 (Class of ’98) and I decided to do a photo shoot of the
whole school yesterday. The picture above was taken with permission
from the teacher of the class.
