Two cute siblings whose parents are traders at a Ramadan bazaar in Slim River. When they saw my camera, they happily flashed the V-sign, inviting me to take a snap. How can I say no? Haha.
Cute as it is, few kids know or care about the origin of the peace or victory (V) sign, its original meaning and colourful history.
For Asian kids, this hand gesture became an automatic and spontaneous reaction to a camera.
Its unexpected revival as part of modern-day Asian pop culture is attributed to the Japanese Cuteness Culture known as kawaii.
