Bukan pesta bapak kau, bukan pesta emak kau but this is Pesta Chow Kit Kita!

I have soooo many free time during these study weeks. Yeah, study weeks are supposedly used wisely by me to study for my final exam at the end of this November. Damn wrong, I did nothing related to S.T.U.D.Y. I intentionally left all my notes at Tanjung Malim so that I'll have this feeling "Argh! Nota tertinggal, macam mana nak study?" I am a pure genius.

Oh yes, here it is. Another event I've been waiting for. The first ever ‘Pesta Chow Kit Kita’ will be held on 21 November 2010 and will showcase Chow Kit and its community through the eyes of teens living there. I'm not going to bla bla bla in the whole post regarding this event since you people have the power to google it. If not, you can refer to the site itself. Kacang, easy and piece of cake.

‘Pesta Chow Kit Kita’ will be the proud effort of ten teens aged between 13 and 15. Picture; Fahmi and the 10 lucky kids

“For the first phase, we covered the religious and ethnic part of Chow Kit. So the children did research on all the religious places and used the skills they learnt in the workshops to get data,” said programme director Fahmi Reza.

“By working on this project, it will give the youth a greater sense of pride, ownership and responsibility towards the community. It can be good for them to learn these skills as it could be used in the future,” said Lew Pik Svonn

"Gua tak tau nak cakap apa-apa. Gua speechless. I know nothing. I'm just a mere volunteer for this event," said KeCiK

"The festival is the outcome of a four-month-long series of workshops conducted for the first phase of the project which covered the theme ‘Ethnic & religious diversity in Chow Kit’. Workshops, which included illustration, mural painting, photography, video, acting, T-shirt printing, and research, were facilitated by a group of young volunteers from various art and media background. 

Besides the launching of the map mural of Chow Kit, there will be a host of activities which promises to be fun yet insightful and purposeful. Visitors will be able to appreciate Chow Kit better through a photography exhibition, origin of road names exhibition, video screening, and a street performance. There will also be a T-shirt printing station, live graffiti, music and dance, and even a best dressed (in traditional costume) competition."
