Hello readers, how is everybody doing? If anybody is thinking of what to do for this coming weekend or pretty much the rest of the month, may I suggest Super Japan - Japanese Festival of Arts, which will kick off on the 13th of May and run till the 22nd of May at the Esplanade. There are free and ticketed events that should provide to different tastes and interests. I'm not sure if I would be joining in the fun though. I'm not too fond of crowds and such, and over time it is increasingly difficult to appreciate anything without having to be mindful of some annoying thing hopping or screaming about just a few centimetres away.
Anyway, many fans of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu would have had secured seats to her upcoming concert on the 13th of May. This is part of her 5th anniversary world tour, also known as KPP 5iVE YEARS MONSTER WORLD TOUR 2016 in Singapore. Even though I have never listened to any of her songs, I find her presence rather alluring sometimes. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu stands out effortlessly with her trendsetting antics which continue to shape her into the popular icon that she is. To those who are attending the concert, be sure to have a blast!
Do you like to hang a little paper doll by your window on some days when you have something planned and would like everything to turn out nicely? There is a Teru Teru Bozu craft workshop on the 15th of May which will appeal to fans of the lovely doll that brings sunny weather to our daily routine. I'm awfully inept at crafts, though it would be nice to have one of those cute, little things smiling from the window (and probably getting mistaken for the supernatural).
Fans of anime films from Studio Ghibli will be delighted to have an instrumental tribute of the many songs which had appeared in those films by Arpeggione Quartet, a local musician group of almost 10 years. I'm not really familiar with Studio Ghibli, but I'm rather fond of Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. The disasters that a little fish could conjure are just unthinkable. And I love the instant ramen. It is awfully expensive over here though. The performance will take place on the 21st of May, over three half-hour slots from 7.15pm to 9.15pm.
The biggest highlight I suppose has to be the Super Japan Matsuri, organised by WAttention. It will be held over three days from 20th of May to 22nd of May. Honestly, I'm very tempted to go for this one despite knowing upfront that I would probably be the filling of a massive human sandwich. For the sake of some takoyaki, I should definitely reconsider. Apparently, a few friends have already voiced their interest to go. For the sake of some takoyaki.
Super Japan - Japanese Festival of Arts has 49 free and ticketed events in total spread over 10 days. What I have mentioned here is merely a small handful, but I'm sure that those who are interested should be able to plan a fruitful experience ahead! How is that for the rest of May? Have fun!
