One boring Saturday afternoon, I decided to pop by the Central Market Annexe for design community pipit‘s 3rd anniversary arts and craft market. The surprise of the day was to bump into the free dance performance happening next door, The Bull and the Cowherd. What an honour to have the opportunity to see classical Indian dance legend Ramli Ibrahim with Guna live in action, for free! It was a pleasure to experience the rhythmic moves and emotive facial expressions of classical Indian dance in person.

Next are pictures from the craft market itself. As the pictures show, the event was chock-a-block with visitors, many of them young DSLR-toting (design?) college students:

The highlight was the stall by Japan’s MARI BRAND selling kawaii handmade dolls:

Other stalls sold everything handicraft: illustrations, drawing, greeting cards, dolls, ornaments, jewellery, patchwork:

Terry Fox Run KL 2009

October 27, 2009

Leaving my gym after a short swim (I am trying my utmost hardest to fit in at least 30 minutes of light exercise on my non-workout days), I saw the Terry Fox Run organizers setting up a stall at my gym lobby selling this year’s run’s T-shirts. I am hoping to make it to this year’s run, but I can’t confirm my attendance in case my weekend gets a bit crazy, or in case I can’t find some friends to go with. So I decided to get the T-shirt beforehand in case I can’t make it. Proceeds from it go towards cancer research.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Terry Fox Run is held annually worldwide in honour of its namesake who ran across Canada in the name of cancer research. The Malaysian leg of this run is going to be held this Sunday (Nov 1) at 9.00 am in the Lake Gardens. It’s a charity run, meaning you can run as fast/slow as you want, wear whatever you want, and there’s no registration required. You WILL be able to donate money though, and buy yourself a t-shirt for charity. Do show up to lend your support for cancer research. (click here for more information)

If you can’t make it but wish to contribute, you can get your t-shirts at these places. If you’re a Celebrity Fitness gym member, you might be lucky enough to get them from the gym lobby, like me.

Below is the event brochure I got from the stall. (Albeit a bit crumpled from my gym bag)
