p/s: Untuk HKK kali ni, memang ada beberapa produk kraf anyaman rotan baru yang dikeluarkan. Frem gambar kraf rotan, mangkuk rotan gabungan bahan dan juga lampu gantung anyaman rotan (rattan lantern) antaranya. Sengaja tidak diletak mentol bagi mudah kerja-kerja pameran. Nanti terlalu banyak pulak wayar berselirat jadi serabut pulak. Sila datang ke Seri Cipta yer kalau nak lihat lebih lanjut. :)

Starting today, HKK-Hari Kraf Kebangsaan (National Craft Day) is officially on. Will be from 27 April - 7 Mac 2008 at Kompleks Kraf Jalan Conlay. I ve been busy lately setting up the whole floor for IKN due to HKK. The truth is, i am getting bored of being the person in charge of every IKN exhibition. Come on, there are almost other designers too. Anyway, i am going to hold my grunges for now. Well IKN is located at Seri Cipta if you visit Kompleks Kraf. So, do come and see some of the things that the students made. And see HKK too. There are hundreds and hundreds of crafts "pengusaha" from all over Malaysia - from Perlis to Sabah bahh.. - ranging from textiles to 3d products. It is a craft fair after all. I am sure there must be a thing or two that will capture your interest. Ohh, I ll be in Kompleks Kraf the whole this week and on 1.04.2008 too. I am going to edit this post, hopefully later by this evening showing more pictures of the whole Kompleks Kraf scene yaa.. Orait, that is it for now. Gotto rush, later.. and heppi blogging ya.. :)

I ll describe these two pictures above later. edited at 2.15pm 27.03.08

I did my browsing through out the whole area around 12.30am. They are hundreds of crafts varieties to choose from. Met and chatted with few crafts "pengusaha," and stopped for a while at the demonstration area to see the traditional way of making a kite. I still think last year demonstration area was excellent and way more colourful than this year. Too bad they have changed its location. If you are going to be there, just try to allocate at least 2 hours so that you can really look around. One hour is just enough for you to spend the area there more like the amazing race style. keke. I love some crafty stuffs from Sarawak and Sabah, and i guess, i will be coming back later around this week to get some nice stuffs there. They are few good rattan stuffs too - from DP design, Cane Furniture (which is in the buyer meets area) and Kak Hasnah (loved the handbags). I think last year layout was better than this year, and that doesnt mean that this year HKK is a bit dull. Well, at its 6th birtday, HKK should be able to handle itself very well.

Well, if you are into arts, there is also this artist colony's area. Lots of nice illos are sold there by talented local artists. It is more like what you get at Central Market. I happen to get a chance to meet Nora Tamby (doing her batik illos. Love em) and Abang Zaki (illustrators.) I have known Nora since my time in RnD and Abang Zaki just this afternoon :) . Abang Zaki works are truly beautiful. Excellent i must say. Love the work that he is working on. Both of them are such nice chaps you know. You can commissioned them to do your art works too. If not, why dont you find something that would suit your budget. There are small artworks if you like. Postcards would do nice to your home decor. I think i ll do a proper interview next time since i was in a hurry when i met them. Ohh, do visit their galeri at Galeri melor if you happen to go HKK in Artist Colony area. Both of them are sharing the same wakaf (Galeri melor)- Kompleks Kraf Seksyen 63, Jalan Conlay, Kuala Lumpur.

Ohhh my, I just received a sms notifying me about HKK launching by PM tomorrow. Never thought Kraftangan Malaysia would promote via sms this year. I guess changing the date has taken its toll and I am sure PR is now having a Kaput time. hehe. Sory yaa Wanie, jgn marah if you happen to read this.

Here is the rattan set which i like - from cane furniture in Buyers Meet section.

Some of my colleagues. = )

Well, i think this is the first post ever that i have used multiple pictures. Anyway, once again, do drop by to HKK. Do show your support of our Malaysia Crafts yaa by buying crafty items there. It is only once in a year that you can have them all in one place. You never know what is in store until you visit. Dont worry about food. There are multiple food stalls there. Ohh..You still have to pay though. Ohh, try to avoid tomorrow morning (28.03.2008) around 10.30 since PM is coming too but if you like all the glitters and hype associated launching ceremonies, then, be there at that time. :P I on the other hand, have been made compulsory to be there. Hehe. I am sure the traffic is going to worsen. Well even today by evening, traffic is quite bad.

Well, I am off now. Maybe will be back later. Heppi Blogging and Have a great day. (urrghhhh i need my rest.) :)

    tak per, datanglah ke HKK. masinh ada sampai 7 hb April.

    datnag jangan tak datang.. (sambil nyanyi..)


  20. nak mintak jin tolong teleport kan kompleks kraf tuh pindah ke JB sini bole..?? haa, kan dah terpengaruh ngan aksi film Jumper.. suruh dia letak kat kawasan danga bay.. senang skit aku nak pi.. hiks...

  21. Nikli,

    we did try previously to transport the whole complex to danga bay. We did try to bend the space. Un fortunately, there were few vortex that could jeopardize the whole operations. In addition, we detected lots of voids in the channels - thus further dangering the attempt. We decided to the the usual methods by lorries but then, we were sure we would be having nightmares on logistics and costs.

    so, finally, we decided HKK would remain here.. in Kompleks Kraf.

    hehehe.. =P

  22. I love your "eating place"! I must insist my future dining room should be painted and decorate just like this. No kidding man.. haha

  23. then, you should give it a try.. hehehe... :)
