Last weekend’s KLue Urbanscapes 2009, the city’s all-day creative arts festival held at KLPac (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center). Although I’ve heard many things about KLPac from friends, but this was my first time to KLPac.
The place blows my mind away. Situated at Sentul, which is in the middle of busy KL city, but once you are inside you will loose all notions that you are still in the busy hectic cosmopolitan city known as Kuala Lumpur. On the way in, you are greeted with beautiful greenery landscapes, clear lake and an old A’ Famosa colonial-esque building. KLPac with its huge spaces of greenery is perfect for events such as this.
KLue Urbanscapes 2009 on the other hand was a kaleidoscope of sights, scenes and sounds. It is as if all of the city’s creative communities gathered at KLPac and do their thing. Also it seems as if everybody in KL who has Digital-SLR or Analog cameras are there at KLPac, Urbanscapes. All kind of camera was present. Everybody all trigger happy, including myself.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
