Asian Australian Conference on Composite Material

     The Eighth Asian Australian Conference on Composite Material Dinner was held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on the past November 7th 2012. Once again Sanggar Kirana and UPAG were obligated to lighten up the ambiance inside the hall as the theme chosen by the organizer was, a traditional Malay concept. As the beautiful melody of Gamelan echoed the hall, the audience were completely drowned by its harmonious rhythm.

    Before then, thanks to Fakhrurradhi, Farhan Iqbal, Noorain Hamid and Syazwan Sabri whom made their way to the event.

The endless support from the alumni.

     Expressing my gratitude to the organizer that we were very fortunate to entertain the audience. And very much thanks to Farhan Iqbal for such a beautiful photos.

     Srikandi, Susuk Angin amd Isang, three most challenging songs were chosen to be presented. With that, a week was spent doing preparation for the event, training physically and mentally since we will be performing for almost 20 minutes, continuously. With a saying, the more the merrier, several members who were in their internship period, came down joining us, performing as well as experiencing the excitement. Our performance were accompanied by UPAG with their beautifully choreographed dances for the first and third songs.

     Enjoying what we do, our soul, our passion.

     It really was a great performance. We did learnt something new from the other groups as well. Thumbs up to the Secretariat of the UKM 2012 Gamelan Festival. Not forgotten, to Our Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Student Affairs and Alumni,Tuan Haji Mohamed Noor Rosli Baharom, who were there that night giving us support, and also our beloved, Mr Ahmad Pg Abdullah who were aiding us from the start.

Skills Unlocked; Polished Polishing

     An idiosyncratic skill yet is embedded within each of everyone of us, the Sanggarian. Though it look easy but there are steps on how to polish the instruments, from a dull golden colour into a shiny bronze-like, with the help of brasso.

Polishing in Process

A simple activity can turn out to be enjoyable

Guess who is sleeping?

     After an hour polishing, it is done finally. You can clearly see your face on the surface of the instruments. Truly.
