Batik Fashion Show - Kuala Lumpur

Other backstage pictures can be found here.

This is an entry of a batik Fashion Show where I choreographed during the Klang Valley Kaamatan Celebration in Kuala Lumpur. It was all in a rush as I was informed only a week before the event. I also have to arrange the music for the catwalk so I rushed to the recording studio to have it all arranged. The KL counterpart will find Sabahan models for the show and to my surprise all the models eventhough first timers they are indeed fast learners and at the end of the show everything went well!, superb to be exact! Part of this article will be featured in a local magazine which I will notify you ols in my next entry. The Fashion Show showcases the latest batik collection featuring batik designs of various motifs of the Rungus and Murut ethnic communities, as well as, the richness of Sabah’s plant diversity especially the slipper’s and borneon orchids.
The material used for the collection ranges from high quality fuji cotton mixed with rayon, silk, jacquered satin and chiffon. The collection comes in full array of soft pastel palette ranging from silkish white to light yellow and green. Apart from loose materials, the batik collection also showcases ready to-wear collection consist of butterfly-shaped blouses and house wear craftans catered for young urban ladies, and short sleeves for men. The butterfly-shaped blouse shows a traditional motif belonging to the Murut ethnics known as sumandak (translated as ‘young girl’) symbolizing an ethnic identity of Murut girls or teenagers. Whereas, the motif used on the men’s wear collection is called nantapuan which means ‘unity’. Most of the ready-to-wear craftans had motif designs of plant species diversity found in Sabah ranging from rare and endemic orchid species, such as the slipper’s and borneon orchids, and the periuk kera or monkey’s ear plants. The loose materials, which were also featured during the fashion show, had various designs combining traditional ethnic motifs and plant species of Sabah. Suitable for making batik long-sleeves for men and evening gowns, baju kurung or kebaya for women, these loose materials are available in silk, jacquered satin and chiffon materials.

Sabah Fest 2006

Themed as 'A Celebration of Sabah's Natural Charms!' The Sabah Fest was launched last night (5/5/06) at the Magellan Sutera Hotel, Kota Kinabalu. It showcase Sabah's most spectacular cultural extravaganza of the year, featuring a kaleidoscope of cultural performances, through traditional musical performances, mesmerising dances and colourful costumes.

I was most attracted on the opening performances by a group of young boys and girls aged between 7-11 from Tunas Budaya (dance troupe from Federal Ministry of Tourism (I think) with the choreography by traditional dance instructors from Tourism Malaysia).
The almost 2 hours dance extravanganza was closed with a dance finale (also as exciting as the opening) by Lembaga Kebudayaan Sabah which features a fast beat dance from the Murut community called Magalang and Magunatip. The rest of the dances in between the opening and finale were from various district of Sabah ranging Igal-igal dance of Semporna to Tantagas from Tuaran. They were just average and a bit boring.

Dance Show Performance - Tired But Perfect

It has been a while since I last posted here. In fact it has been almost a year since the last time I did a dance show for a function. It has also been since June last year that I stopped teaching dance. While it has been 3 months ago that I started to learn the wonders of pocho-pocho dance - a type of line dancing, with the Queenie Top Dancing Studio, I was asked to join a group arranged by the studio for a dance performance for a charity dinner and dance function. Which I did actually! The dance performance was last night on the 28 April 2006.

We did two line dances with a modern contemporary mixed with hip hop routine - a Jaclyn Victor's song and a fast beat Tagalog song. In total it was slightly over 6 minutes long. It pretty much tiring as it involved a bit of jumping. I also felt that I am not as fit as I used to be before. My endurance was at the lowest level and I was running out of breath half of the time. However, the show was wonderful almost perfect with almost no hitches at all.
