Last month, I went to Yayasan Sime Dary Art Festival, a two day event that was held in KLPAC, Sentul. I found out about the event via Facebook and saw that the lineup was pretty good so I decided to check it out on Saturday. I went with my friend Rachelle to the event and we arrived quite early in the morning.
Since I haven't used my DSLR for some time, I decided to bring it along for some shots.
There were many activities, performances and workshops throughout the day from 10am to 10pm. I wish I could go for all but some were overlapping with the ones that I really wanted to go so I just highlighted the ones that I am interested at. Most of the day is spent running around KLPAC area as different activities were held at different areas.
Most of the workshops require pre-registration on their website which I signed up for water brush calligraphy class. There were also other activities like batik painting, Royal press booth that no need any prior registration. I also tried my hands on silk screen printing at the Raksasa Print booth.
Performances were held throughout KLPAC such as short skits, choir, dance, percussion, wayang kulit etc. Each corner were filled with participants and spectators. One of the interesting booth that I came across was Gerai Tai Tai which is fortune telling with a twist. It was pretty fun and you can find the photo on my instagram :)
Gohkaki Childhood Museum displayed an array of childhood games which can be played with at their booth which invoked a lot of childhood memories!
At the lawn area, I managed to catch acts such as Mutesite, Liyana Fizi, The Impatient Sisters and 2dB. It was definitely a great day spent at #YSDAF and I am hoping that they would hold it again next year! :)
