Event : Arts for Grab & KLAB 2013


I went to Kuala Lumpur Alternative Bookfest (KLab) in Annexe Gallery, Central Market yesterday. I haven't been to the city by public transportation for awhile so I let my brother lead the way - surprisingly I can't remember any of the routes, it was totally on him.

We arrived there around 1pm, finally felt the cold air-cond in the gallery and started to visit every small booths. One that caught my eyes was 'Rumah Ibadat Kita', it's a project by our local youth on mapping the spiritual places in Malaysia. I bought their nice notebook with 'Have a HOLY Day' printed on it and received the map to Brickfields' spiritual journey. In the map, you can choose a hour walk or 2 1/2 hours walk, visiting all the temples, mosques, churches in Brickfield area. I wish they have other copy for Melaka map. 


They wanted to promote religious understanding between different faiths in Malaysia and I think that is a great idea ! +bonus : nice-creative designs too.

After I visited the Arts for Grab area, I went to the independent book publishers lane, and boy that was nice. There was 2 long rows of booths selling books and zines. I've never really followed their evolution religiously, but I know it just started several years ago and it was overwhelming. 

Book designs evolved, it is not as typical as it used to. There's artistic value and concept - far much better. The variations, the people, the supports. 

Bought several books with discount and wished I bought more :
