A part of Art History in Malaysia!!

11-11-11: It was a a mark in the history of the arts in our country... and an event bigger mark in my birthplace, Penang's art history. That was the day that the Performance Arts Centre of Penang (penangpac) was officially opened. Located in the beautiful Straits Quay, in Tanjung Tokong... it has 2 awesome stages and 3 incredibly cool studios!!! (How I wish klpac's studio is that big & has that many mirrors!! hehehe)

The cast of Malaysian Girls were there too... to promote the show which will land in penancpac in January 2012. And boy, did we have a whole lot of fun together!! Backstage truly truly felt like a pageant... but a pageant with a bunch of girls with no sense of competition & rivalry hehehe. How cool (& rare!) is that?? Well, it is after all NOT a competition. We were helping each other with hair & make-up, taking lots & lots of photos together. Our hair & make-up turned out so great that the photos were super gorgeous & glamourous!! We ♥ them so much and wish these crazy backstage photos could be on the promo posters hehehe. Whaddya think??

Of course with da cast!!
& our incredibly talented Musical Director, Mervyn!
 The other acts also made their bang in the little pearl island:

The Hands Percussion team literally started the night with a BANG!!
The Tony Yap Company
Lee Swee Keong in Nyoba Kan

The stitch-bursting comedy "Indicine Live!"
The audience's fav, Indicine Live! We're Chinese!

One of our girls Sandee, even became penangpac's hero by giving up her glam and sash to lead the lighting & tech team to make sure we all look fabulous on stage!! You don't find selfless rare gems like this in real pageants. We girls were even preparing to take on 1 task each to collectively help her glam up right before our show but she couldn't make it on stage with us... sad. We ♥ you Sandee!!!!

We all cannot wait to go back in January... Penang, see you again!!
