In truth, there nothing quite like watching mothers (or grandmothers), wear the traditional, and quite sexy, “chi pao,” strut across the stage and then very suggestively pause for the audience. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is not the American Idol beauty, the superficial obsession with skin tone that floods our television and cable advertising. It is true beauty, beauty in the most profound sense. Mother’s Day is their time to shine; for all their lives they have been working, cooking, cleaning, and whatever else it takes to raise a family. When have they ever had the time to be appreciated, to wear something nice and have people applaud, and finally, to be recognized?
