What is Urbanscapes?
An outdoor creative arts festival! Tents and stalls with live bands, arts, fashion, film, theater, food etc. All local too! Never knew what a local band sounds like? Always wondered if Malaysia has creative people left? Get exploring at Urbanscapes!
If you’ve never been to an outdoor festival or concert, well try to remember Canteen Days when you were in school. Multiply that by… I dunno, depending on how big your school was. My school’s Canteen Days were pretty awesome, we always had a horror house!
That besides the point, here’s a link to Urbanscape’s areas: *click*
Details details details…
When: 16 July 2011, Saturday, 12pm till 12am.
Where: Padang Astaka, Petaling Jaya.
That’s right, the organiser has infiltrated my Bootcamp home ground. This would most likely translate to an off-site training session for that day for PJA and PJB. Initially I was slightly bitter about this but then came to my senses that promotion of local arts, entertainment and culture is the higher purpose. Ohm.
How do you get to Padang Astaka? Easy, google map it. Best that you leave your vehicles at home that day, not too many parking spots at Padang Astaka. The available ones would have already been taken up, trust me. Take the LRT to Taman Jaya and walk towards the venue. Some also suggested the Asia Jaya stop, but I prefer Taman Jaya ‘cos it’s greener.
Walk?? Sounds like a lot of effort leh… who’s going to make it worthwhile?
Kyoto Protocol. Lapsap. Liyana Fizi. Actorlympics featuring Douglas Lim, Rashid Salleh, Nell Ng, Kuah Jenhan and Patrick Teoh. KakiSeni previews. Book bazaar. Fashion and accessory vendors (not unlike Chicpop). The Last Polka (special ice-cream!). Food food food, including my friends The Accidental Bakers who are passionate about baking absolutely delicious cakes. That’s just barely half the list!
Coincidentally, my friends at The Accidental Bakers love Darren Criss from GLEE so much (yeah I know, who??) that they named their super awesome dark chocolate with honey cake after him. It is now the Darren Criss cake, or the Darren Criss. I’m like -_-”
Enough chit-chat, I have serious business to get to. Do you have to pay to get into Urbanscapes 2011? Yes, RM40 per ticket. Or no, if you are lucky enough to win a pair of tickets from me!
So a sample tweet from you could look something like this:
