My first time attending this festival and ...
I'm actually really impressed!
For those of you who don't know me,
I'm abit hard to please.
Heavy rain and a massive traffic jam
certainly did not discourage the enthusiastic crowd
from attending the 7th Sabah International Folklore Festival 2012.
The performance was captivating from the very beginning.
18 countries coming together in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
to perform their traditional dances.
Always wrathed in smiles,
the performers seem to radiate confidence and absolute pride
in their cultural dance.
I was instantly infected by their enthusiasm
and had to constantly tell myself to stop smiling and bobbing my head,
"oi. I'm here to take pictures la!"
The colorful and striking traditional attire
of the many different countries are always fascinating.
And it's just alot more attention grabbing when it's worn by a hottie.

I enjoyed myself tremendously.
The crowd was obviously enjoying it alot as well
as they clapped their hands to the beat of the music.
I'm sure the performers felt appreciated and danced the best they could.
Being able to witness 18 different countries' cultural dances in one night
is an amazing and truly rare opportunity.
One that i appreciate and wont forget.
All in all, i must say,
the night at the Sabah International Folklore Festival 2012
was a major success.
Let's go together next year, pretty please?
I wanted to take pictures with the handsome 'angmohs'!
Heartfelt thanks to Breeze magazine for the Media Entry invite!
