Rippling up this July once again is festival du jour, The Rainforest Fringe Festival. It would seem that everyone is finally hip to the RFF which lifts aside the multiple veils of art, culture, food and tradition to reveal the mysterious essence of Sarawak and her ties within the region. The charisma and instincts of Joe Sidek are a visible force for the third year running with a programme that is at once boldly eclectic and intimately insightful. If you’ve snagged a flight to Kuching this weekend, give yourself and the festival the unqualified love it deserves and head on over to check out what the festival has to offer.
Pasar Glam, The Market @ Borneo 744
Sereni Linggi, Shireen Zainudin and Joe Sidek himself have put together the most glamorous pre-loved store in aid of The Sarawak Children’s Cancer Society. All merchandise has been generously donated by public personalities, designers and retailers. The star items which include a silk batik shirt owned by the last Raja Muda of Sarawak Anthony Brooke, donated by his grandson Jason Brooke; and a pretty baju kurung worn by star politician Hannah Yeoh in her earliest days at work; are open to silent bids all weekend.
