Last month Mamarazzi saw her friend post up about Sime Darby Art Festival on Facebook. This is the first that Mamarazzi heard of this festival . What caught Mamarazzi's eyes was "For this year' s festival, we will have close to 60 workshops for children and adults. Whether you would like to learn Hip Hop or Chinese Sleeve Dance, Directing or Batik Printing, there is something for everyone to choose from. All workshops are free of charge but there is limited space available. You can also walk-in to register on the festival day, subject to availability.".
Wow...so many workshops...even have Belly Dancing, Bollywood Dance, Flamenco Dancing and many others.
Apa lagi...after checking various workshops, she immediately register me for several workshops.
We arrived there early. 10am was the first workshop - Dance in Speech .... followed by Djembe Workshop, ACX Puppet, Public Speaking and and...what else ah...lost track.
All day long there are various performance being perform inside KLPAC and outside. She loves the choir. The little boys and girls have voice of the angels.
She heard the impressive sound of drums being played. They were like calling out to her. She walked out door and saw this energetic performance.
Sorry ya...only able to get the back view as she dare not disturb the performance by walking to the front.
What she love the most is the smiling face of the performers. They smile to each other and to the audience making it very pleasant to see. It was like they are having the time of their life. That makes it so special
VIDEO2This second video shows that they are playing a traditional Malay song. Can you identify the song? Amazing how well they blend the old and the new together.
Break for lunch. There were food truck and stall right at the parking lot of KLPAC. I was very hungry. Had this packet of Nasi Briyani with Ayam Berempah. Yippee!! It's not spicy at all. I like.
I managed to see clown entertaining the adults and kids.
Outdoor, there were many booths
I wanted to attempt this but Mamarazzi said it's for adult .
But I did get my hand on Batik Painting.
Then i went to the booth where they are promoting 100 traditional games.
Trying my hands on one of the traditional games.
Aha! This is much easier than the Coconut Bowling. I have talent in this.
Had to used a lot of "brain juice" for this.
It's time for my next workshop lo.
Got some pretty girl girl bringing a large piece of cloth asking visitors to sign. I couldn't sign it then.
But later on, I managed to sign.
Mamarazzi was watching this amazing hand percussion when she received a call saying that parent have to accompany the child for the last workshop.
It's sad that we had to go back as it's evening already. I enjoyed myself very much at the Art Festival. hopefully it will be held again next year.
