Malaysian Craft Festival


Woke up to an early breakfast in a nearby coffee shop for some caffeine-induced energy. I must say, I didn't feel lagged by the jet, the energy I'm getting from staying at the middle of the shopping area must have some influence to my chi.






I was informed by my mom about the Malaysian Arts and Craft and Cultural Fair.
All we knew was it is currently held at the Kompleks Kraf  Malaysia in Jalan Conlay. So we headed  towards the general direction but weren't able find exactly where it is. So, we did the most tourist-iest thing ever - asking "locals" for the direction. No surprise when they were not able to help; turns out the two ladies we approached were Filipinos and another guy was from out of town.

After much pointless walkabout, we found it... as usual, it's always the last place we look...





Various demonstrations...

no idea what they were doing


enameling

looking quite guilty as he wasn't doing anything just yet...



grandma making all sorts of vessels with clay




MrD besotted by the Keroncong group, singing a keroncong version of Nat King Cole's "Autumn Leaves"









I miss...
the lushness of the tropics







and, ice kacang...










Oh, by the way... I want to say "Hi" to Norma (sorry, if I got your name wrong).
You kinda caught me by surprise while I was searching out for the elusive ice kachang. It was nice to meet someone in person who is kind enough to follow me on my little adventures.
I wish I was quick-thinking enough to ask for our pictures to be taken... I do apologise.

Akak gelak sorang sorang Muna cerita sesat cari jalan ke kraftangan. memang pun.....elok Dato Pengarah Kraftangan baca blog ni ya, betapa lecehnya nak g ke sana.

    Sayang sekali kak azni tak turun teman my hubby who also one of the craftman there. Jika tak, boleh kak jumpa Muna secara live. Booth kami under name of Techno Ceramic, yang ada Golden Keris buatan tangan dari seramik, u can see thru my blog.
