So when I came across this blue vynil with pretty floral motives, I knew what to do with it rightaway.
....and here it is, a shopping bag with vynil lining inside, very durable and easy to clean (just wipe with damp cloth). You can reverse the bag and put the vynil part putside too, perfect for those rainy days :D
I use tenun troso in bright green color for the other side of the bag, embellished with a bird applique which I colored with fabric paint.
Very experimental, yet I'm pleased with the outcome :)
Oh and yes, it's for sale ;)

After the alfresco dining we were drawn to the crowds nearby. It was at an outdoor theatre on the waterfront and not to mention it's free ;) so we decided to stay and watch for a while.
The stage bursts with talents from dancers, singers and musicians from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. As we watched in awe we learned that the show was not all about malay dances and songs only. We were pleasantly surprise when a bunch of youth from Jogja performed a javanese song in hip hop! It was like watching the Black Eyed Peas where Fergie wears kebaya and the boys wear batik shirt and blangkon (in a good way, ofcourse) :D
Afterwards we stroll along the river walk, enjoying the city lights and then finally took a cab back home. It sure was one of those almost-perfect Saturday nights :)
