Educate, Engage and Empower at the Johor Arts Festival 2018

Do you agree with me that the most meaningful thing in this world is to educate, engage and empower the community? Johor Arts Festival has been doing it for the past 15 years and they are still doing their best in shaping the soul of the community through ARTS.
Speech by Festival Director, Suzie Yap during the launch of 15th Johor Arts Festival (15JohorAF) 
Festival director, Suzie Yap said that The Johor Society for the Performing Arts (JSPA) which organises the festival yearly is extremely proud of its achievements throughout the years. She thanked the community, the government and private organisations for their support and hoped that they would continue to do so in years to come.

“Fifteen years ago, when we started this, we reached out to as many schools as possible and we managed to plant the art-loving seed in them. Now, they keep coming back to our festival. They bring their friends, their spouses, their children and slowly the art community grows,” she said during the launch of the 15th Johor Arts Festival (15JohorAF) held at the Persada Johor International Convention Centre on Sept 3.
The launch of 15JohorAF coincided with a breathtaking performance by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) entitled from Mozart to Totoro.

The performance included:
♥️ Mozart Marriage of Figaro Overture
♥️ Mozart Symphony No. 40 in G minor
♥️ Local Composer, Vivian Chua Mercu Kegemilangan (Chamber Version)
♥️ Hisaishi Kimi Wo Nosete, music from Castle in the Sky

The conductor surprised the audience with the Totoro's outfit. 
Loud applause by the audience. 
From L to R
Festival Director, Suzie Yap; Conductor of Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Naohisa Furusawa; Johor Women Development and Tourism Committee Chairman, Liow Cai Tung
I enjoyed the 2 hours performance very much and had the chance to take picture with the conductor in Totoro suit! My emotions flew with the performance from the melancholic, tragic and sadness from the Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K550 to the fantastic worlds of Hayao Miyazaki.

Staycation @ Element Hotel Kuala Lumpur by Westin

Traveling to Kuala Lumpur for vacation?
Why not check out the Element Hotel Kuala Lumpur by Westin- the tallest eco friendly building. Standing at 274-metre height in Ilham tower, Element hotel consists of 252 well-appointed rooms, meeting rooms, all-day-dining restaurant and bar. The 39th floor comes with spa, in-door swimming pool, gym and exercise room.

Checking in to the Element Hotel around 2am didn't affect the outstanding service. The hotel lobby is located on the 40th floor, with the gorgeous decor and 360-degree skyline city view that overlooked the KL city center.

Checking into our room, we are delighted to find out that it comes with kitchen and spacious living room. Walking into the room, it is a comfortable king-sized bed and bathtub.

Soaking in the bathtub makes you feel like home. 
As it is in the middle of the night, the bed attracts us the most. There is a TV in the room which offers a variety of channels.

TRACE Restaurant
The room comes with complimentary breakfast. The breakfast buffet offers a variety of food and it can definitely satisfy your cravings.

Indoor Swimming Pool 
The indoor swimming pool is gorgeous and it allows you to swim your heart out with the magnificent city view.  


The hotel is only a minute walk to Ampang Park LRT Station and it is just one stop away from KLCC. It allows you to explore the Petronas twin tower conveniently. 

My Verdict 
I enjoyed my 3 nights stay in Element. It is easily accessible through public transport and allows you to travel around Kuala Lumpur during your stay. After a tiring day, you will be greeted by the comfortable king sized bed, the spacious living space with complimentary WiFi. It makes you feel like home. The curtain are blackout and what is worth mentioning is each room has a filtered tap as the hotel is plastic-bottle free. The service and facilities are great and it is indeed an incredible place to stay!

Rhapsody Music Festival Gala Concert Part 2

If you have been reading my post, you would have known that I share about the Rhapsody Music Festival here. I attended the Rhapsody Music Festival over the last weekend and it was indeed a wonderful experience. 

I brought my sister along and she was overjoyed with the experience as well. 

Can't wait for the performance to start.

The appearance of I Giardini. 
Their performance featured Schumann Piano Quartet in Eb majoe, op.47 & Mozart Piano Quartet in G minor, K478. 
It was an impressive live performance. The quartet from Schumaann has 4 moments and it was deeply romantic and emotional. The Mozart's pieces stunned the audience with joy.  
Everyone was deeply into the performance and presented their biggest applause at the end of the performance. 

The participants of the master class received their certificate and took photo with the artists

We enjoyed ourselves at the gala concert and we ended our day with a photo!
