- Eoji a.k.a Mr Whimsical
- Lentera Tari from UMS
- Edge Master Band
- Emergency Call
- The Fingers
- The Unknown
- Cahaya d’Folk
It was AWESOME!!! I gotta be honest here, that I never heard of some of the local Artist. Apart from Asif & Rene I only know Velvet AF4 and Alvin MY. I was a bit clueless about the others and get confused with the other talent because all of them are so damn good. Okay not all but some did a pretty awesome job at performing. :)
Other than musical performance the Youth Art Festival also featured artworks and photography exhibition. People can bid the artworks and photo and everything will go to charity.
One of the work of art that catches my eye. Although the eyelash looks a bit odd cuz it resemblances hair being blown by the wind and I don’t think eyelash can do that. But it is probably for artistic reason the eyelash is drawn like that. I like it tho!
While waiting for the VIPs to arrive the volunteers set up the chair, the artworks and also just standing there to make as if there’s already a crowd even when 1Borneo is practically a ghost town at 9am.
Because I arrive quite early that day, I decided to look around and check out the art exhibition since I know I’ll be busy after the event start.
Alamesra Youth Prep centre activities map. The youth prep centre is a non profit organization which aim to create awareness about social problems that affecting the youths.
There’s also a donation box. People who wanted to donate their used clothes, books etc… can do so. But I’m afraid the there’s only 1 donation box for all of it and I don’t think they got many donation that day.
The event start at 10am which was quite early and surprisingly the event went on schedule. :D
Front seats for the VIPs.
I’m sad to admit that I only manage to take few good photos for the event. I was busy recording people and rushing to charge the video cam. The battery only lasted for 3hours FML.
Velvet’s calender cupcake. According to an anonymous food lover statement, it said to much more yummylicious than boutique cupcake even tho the decoration might not be as extravagant. And it cost RM5 each, WTF?!. RM5 + RM1.25 I can buy myself a McD value lunch!
Green leaf theatre performing about life, death and materialism. Which in my opinion there’s nothing wrong being materialistic, as long as we’re alive we do need money. I forgot the band’s name but they were pretty good. Although they did butchered Paramore’s song Brick by Boring Brick. LOL Asif and Rene. I steal this picture from their profile… sorry. :P
My favourite band of the day : The Fingers. They truly ROCK! LOL
After The Fingers performance, the music festival end and a few photo session with the other volunteers. We head home tired and hungry. LOL
Live painting by Cracko Blabak and his friends. If you’re notice the abandon mural painting near Tong Hing Supermarket KK, they were the one that responsible for that work of art.
I didn’t volunteer that day tho was brunching with Ed at 1borneo. Just another passer by… I didn’t wait until they finish it but I bet it will definitely look good.
So, I’ll end my post abruptly here and say BYEBYE till we meet again in another post.
