The first weekend of Merdeka month will see an apt revelry of all things that make Malaysia truly Asia (apologies for borrowing this Tourism Board cliché) via a two-day revelry of art, music, and poetry. Dem Malaysian Vibes, as it is called, is a team effort by young visual artists Mawar Artworks and Fay Ulrica, whose purpose for the event is to “highlight and remind viewers of the little details” that make both East and West Malaysia what they are – yep, fret not, East Malaysia is getting its fair share of representation too.
The gallery is up for viewing 3pm onwards, but if you’re just there for the dancefloor and drinks, the bar opens at 9pm. Peep the full itinerary below:
