11 March – ArtStories was at Chinese Garden on a Saturday with Taman Jurong CC celebrating their Jurong Arts & Music Festival, a first for Taman Jurong to hold a joint event!

The Guest of Honour of the day was Deputy Prime Minister Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam. (I wish he will be our next PM)

Mr Shanmugaratnam came to visit ArtStories at our booths but unfortunately we had alot of participants to attend to and did not have a photo taken together. He, however did saw we were teaching a variety of Arts & Craft; Coffee Art, Paper Cut & Instrument Making.

Lovely Artists Joseph, Saiful, Gerald, Nerissa and my cousin Gracinia were working with me in this event.

The crowd strolled in from 530pm after the heavy rain and we were kept busy on our toes till the event ended at 9pm.
