The Indepedence Project at Galeri Petronas

I’ve been to Galeri Petronas several times now and I really like it. It is many times better than the disappointing Muzium Negara. The current exhibition at the gallery is especially not something to be missed. Really. The Independence Project, as the exhibition is known as, explores how a number of artists from Malaysia and Australia define the idea of independence.

Muzium Negara is unimpressive

Muzium Negara sucks.

End Of Message.

Little fish, befriend me!

This is a painting I did. It is a scene at Taman Tasik Perdana, at 8:30am last weekend.

Stand Up Comedy

Edgy Malay Comedy. That was what was promised by a friend at the Open Mike night in Bojangles last night.

Bojangles, one of the rare few pubs across Kuala Lumpur, actually has an open mike night for amateurs to peddle their music or jokes or whatever. It was a combination of music, jokes and whatever that was centrestage and under the stage lights.

Where are the sculptures in KL?

I feel that there aren’t enough sculptures in Kuala Lumpur. So few there are that I think I could count them. I am in the opinion that even the little cozy town called Ann Arbor has more sculptures than Kuala Lumpur, including the Klang Valley. That is sad.

The most well known of all sculptures in Kuala Lumpur, probably in the whole country, is the Tugu Negara, a monument dedicated to those that fell for the country.

The monument was blown apart by the communists in 1975. Fortunately for many of us, it was restored to its original state and now, it is still standing proudly on top of a hill.
