International Buskers Festival

There’s this International Buskers Festival going on for the whole week of last. It was fantastic to watch. They are damn good in all their talents. They are nice and friendly people as well, easy to approach. The festival was organized by the Tourism Malaysia. It was really a success; they come from various countries such as, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and etc. The opening ceremony for the event was so grand and they eventually came with a parade. The costumes are imported from Brasil and most of the performers are from Soka Gakkai Malaysia. The costumes were so nice and colourful and it really brings up the whole cherish and happening mood in Dataran Merdeka for that night. Dataran Merdeka is ALIVE…!!!

OK, some of you might not know what I am talking about. What is Buskers? Buskers are people who perform on streets to earn some money. It can be any forms of entertainment to entertain the people on streets.

On Saturday midnight, there’s a Buskers Party on streets at Asian Heritage Row by Carlsberg. It was great… get to see how they swallow fire and how they play with fires. Even acrobatics, jokes, juggling of knives, walk on knives and etc. 3sa, Li Yian, Melvin , and I was there from 12am till 3.30am.

This is an annual event, but next year the venue is yet to be confirmed. Very soon there will be a local buskers festival going on as well. Will update everyone when I get to know when….
