Quilting and I

CREATED ON SEPTEMBER 25, 2016
IN BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN

“There is a human cost to what we wear."

In "Quilting and I" from PechaKucha Night Bandar Seri Begawan Vol. 8, Nur Ahmad urges us to reconnect to the forgotten creative skills of sewing through quilting (it's just squares and straight lines - a good place to start!).  She hopes that will eventually lead us to the merrier path of knowing what we wear, understanding the real cost of our fashion choices and hurry us along to finding alternative sustainable textiles.

APPLAUD THIS!

The Root of Music

BY FINAH YUSOF
@ VOL 10 ON APR 01, 2017

Rhythmic music became a trigger for Alexandre Wielemans who traveled all the way to Africa finding soul in their music by traveling to Bamako, Mali with his traveling companion, Finah Yusof. It was there that he realized he had to go through a quest of creating and finding the perfect instrument that would reconnect him to his deepest roots. Meanwhile, for Finah, the music she learned in Bamako was a revelation to an almost transcendent connection she had been missing.

Cake Made Me Do It

BY FLORENCE YAPP
@ VOL 10 ON APR 01, 2017

"When I saw a recipe for cake that says use 4 eggs, I just use three because I had an egg for breakfast."

Cakes are sweet. Cakes are sour. Cakes are fluffy. Cakes are heavy. No matter how hard you try, just like a cake with all the science behind it, people will judge you and that is what Florence Yapp learned about life.

About the City's Organizers

  • Huwaida Ishaaq

    I enjoy getting people together, connecting and creating magical moments. I've been so blessed with great loves and friends in my life that I wish the same for others. While on this earth I hope to contribute my presence in a meaningful way, through travelling, writing and getting involved in projects with charities or bridging the gap between corporates and the causes they support. Peace. May your adventures be joyful.

    I run 'the collective', an organization that is focused on promoting creativity and arts in Brunei, through grassroots events and projects. Formerly an MBA graduate from Sydney, I've lived in Paris, Sydney, Newcastle and Taiwan and frequently travel (4 out of 7 continents to date). Adventure is my middle name! I surf, bike, and do all manner of crazy things!

  • Fitri Ali

    Adventurer. Norm defier. Thoughtful rebel. Omnivert. Techie by profession. Aiming to be financially free by 33 so I don't have to clean toilets when I decide to travel long-term. Positively borderline realistic/pessimistic, but generally a happy person.

    Youth advocate. Lover of stories. Passion for people.

  • Jonathan Ooi

    I have been involved with most aspects of the Australia's music industry for 6 years, from performing, recording and now managing musicians. One of my goals in life is to create a sustainable music industry in Brunei provide opportunities to other musicians by working, sharing and collaborating ideas with them.

  • Fu Jeon Lim

    Change is The Only Constant

    Happiest in nature, with a love for travelling and the good things in life: stories, photography, snow, bacon anything and cheese. All music makes me dance (naturally!) and if you longboard, we're already friends :D
