I was privileged enough to be invited by DBS to attend SPARKS, The Musical (performed from 3rd – 5th Aug) to commemorate the bank’s 50th anniversary. The gala show was attended by Guest of Honour Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, as well as many of the bank’s leaders and employees from the early years.
It was purely a coincidence that the Rainforest World Music Festival held yearly at Kuching (Sarawak, Malaysia) falls exactly on the week I was there for a short getaway. My friend snagged tickets for 2 few days before we arrived at Kuching.
A quick search on Google tells me that not only does this 3-days international music festival from 13 – 15 July involve just music performances but also a cultural enlightenment for most of us. Activities include wellness programs, hands-on workshops on how to play an indigenous instruments and more.
