View this post on Instagram

Ni review saya tentang Rumah hantu @hauntumy . Mungkin ramai dah tahu yang di @thelinckl ada 1 rumah hantu iaitu Hauntu. Konsepnya berbeza dengan tipikal rumah hantu kat funfair atau themepark. Instead of jumpscare atau hantu yang melompat jerit-jerit kat korang tu, di hauntu mereka lebih pada psychology. Buat korang terasa seperti berada dalam movie seram. Menariknya sebab ada jalan cerita dan pelbagai ending yang berbeza bergamtung pada decision yang anda buat semasa dalam cerita tu. Siap ada plot twist lagi! 😅 . Paling salute ialah pelakon-pelakon di hauntu ni memang sangat talented and menjiwai watak buatkan kita rasa nak datang lagi tengok lakonan mereka. . Kepada anda yang nak rasai kelainan untuk aktiviti bersama kawan-kawan or family boleh datang. Cuma nasihat saya pada mereka yang jenis tak penakut tapi nak join juga masuk bersama kawan-kawan anda, you just play along je dengan whatever happen inside insyaAllah you will enjoy it! Eventho you tak takut, just think that you pay for it so you better enjoy rather than spoiling you own experience. Team kami sangat enjoy sebab masing-masing ada karakter yang menghiburkan 😂 . tag sesiapa yang korang nak ajak ke rumah hantu ni. 👍🏻 . #KualaLumpur4All #GayaTravel #VisitKL #AboutKL #VisitMalaysia2020 #vm2020

Letter’s End by Wolfe Bowart 

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing was invited by Divesecity.my to watch the Malaysian 🇲🇾 Premiere Letter’s End recent months

What’s that about❓⁉️

To SiennyLovesDrawing, it’s a meaningful well planned live performance of clown 🤡 theatre cum puppetry ğŸŽ­ comedy through digital media ğŸ’»ğŸŽ¥

Hmm…Definitely an impressive visual composition that weaves together clown 🤡 theater, circus 🤹🏻‍♂️ skill, stage illusion, puppetry ğŸŽ­ & physical comedy🤣😆

Guess what❓⁉️

The playwright cum performer 🤡, Mr. Wolfe Bowart 👨🏼has enchanted the young 👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻 & young at heart through a method of story-telling that is becoming rare during the recent KL International Arts Festival [KLIAF] 2017 in Malaysia 🇲🇾

Letter’s End was honoured with a Helpmann Award ğŸŽ–nomination, the Australian 🇦🇺equivalent of the Olivier AwardsğŸŽ–[in the category of Best Touring Production]. Absolutely it charmed all audiences of all ages in countries around the world ğŸŒŽ

“Although the character 👨🏼in this live performance doesn’t speak ❌🗣, the actor 👨🏼communicates with his body & through musicğŸŽ¶ğŸŽµ, a little voiceover 🗣& the magic of technical theater, the audiences👫👭👬understand what the actor👨🏼 is going through. The word “mime” has traditionally been used to describe the art of creating the illusion of objects & space – eating an imaginary ğŸŽ In Letter’s End, the boxes 📦📦are real & I really eat an apple ğŸŽ Letter’s End is filled with shadow puppets ğŸŽ­, film ğŸŽž interaction, magic & circus 🤹🏻‍♂️acts ~ it’s funny 😂 & heart-warming😊This makes it a unique theatrical experience especially the story is told using stage illusion & circus skills, I’m often asked, ‘How did you do that❓⁉️” shared Mr. Wolfe Bowart

This Helpmann AwardğŸŽ–nominee truly believes that nothing beats a live act to captivate & delight children👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻, especially compared to watching a story unfold on a digital screen💻

At 1️⃣ point during the performance, Mr Bowart 👨🏼 has invited a young audience 👦🏻 to participate onstage. As 1️⃣ of the audiences, SiennyLovesDrawing felt it was a charming moment & of course an interactive move with his audiences👫👭👬for live participation 👍🏻 The boy👦🏻was given a hard hat ğŸŽ© & put immediately to work aka the live action with him 👨🏼in the story telling theatre 😆

Mr Bowart 👨🏼shared further, “I’ve always enjoyed performing 🤡 🤹🏻‍♂️for people; making people laugh 😂 🤣. All children 👶🏻👦🏻👧🏻 are naturally playful.”

In Letter’s End, a man is tasked to burn lost packages and letters in a furnace, a job he carries out meticulously, until an old brown teddy bear falls out of a torn parcel. A memory is stirred. Soon, the man begins to open other packages and letters, and a whole wondrous world unfolds. Letter’s End is a memorable piece steeped in charm and the joy of human interaction. Something we are in danger of forgetting in our reliance on technology to cultivate the sense of wonder, adventure and creativity in children.

It was 7️⃣5️⃣ mins live act & ❌no photo 📸/ video ğŸŽ¥ğŸ“¹ taking is allowed during the show. SiennyLovesDrawing has respected it as she can really put down her digital devices📱& focus in enjoying a great laugh out loud😃😄with all the audiences👬👭👫 attended.

It’s really an awesome 🆒 show not to be missed ya ‼️😃👍🏻

Really wish this acclaimed playwright 🤡 will come & perform in the Malaysian premiere of Letter’s End next year or perhaps every years 😀😉

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 got a privilege to have a photo 📸 captured (Ha…Ha…the crazy 😜 faces) with Mr Wolfe Bowart 👨🏼 after the show

behind behind fishes talk…🚌🏚🐟☂👽

Sharing my sketch of the zebra fishes family (due to the zebra stripes on the fishes) as I just recalled about my secret talks with them behind a homestay during one of my work travel last year😃🤗

Hmm…I guess they are in a family. Why? Just my gut feeling and I trust it as it always accurate since young😉

Why talking to fishes? Because I needed to share my secrets kept in my heart, and I needed answers to some my life questions at that time. I was 2 weeks in the homestay, amazing moments whenever I needed them, waited them behind the homestay, and then 3 of them swam by and listened to me…Thanks to this zebra fishes family, my heart got lighten after my short stay during that work travel☺️

Hmm…my ‘why fishes’ art ideaperhaps was an art inspiration from this zebra fishes family…ohh..thank you fishes!😄
