Colourful HKK 2013

If you ask me or any Malaysian what is HKK, most of us may not know the answer. Some may thought it meant Hong Kong Kaki.

Hari Kraf Kebangsaan (HKK) is mostly visited by Malay. I saw very small percentage of the visitors who are tourists or other races. This was just a personal observation on a particular day, so it may not be a fair comment on the overall turn out.

Personally, I think HKK is a colour event that Malaysian and tourists should pay a visit.

My favourite section is the weaving crafts.

Weaving is a good source of income for many remote villages. It opens up macro economy for women who cannot leave home or do heavy duty chores.

The impression I have for the entire event is COLOURFUL.

Although traditional crafts remain the main presentation, some exhibitors do show creativity and new ideas.

The price tag correlates with the workmanship and quality of the materials.

Many schools organize outing to let the students expose to Malaysian arts and crafts. I think that is an excellent idea (if the students curious enough to ask questions).

Getting to know the name of the product and the process of making it are already containing great wealth of knowledge.

Getting to know the tedious process and creative elements behind the craft make it more interesting on your next visit to the places producing such crafts.

If you have children, you can let them participate in some of the hands-on sessions. It could be more beneficial than spending hours on PSP or tablet games.

By the way, the entrance fee is free. Even the shutter service from opened parking place to Komplek Kraf (Crafts Complex) is also free of charge.
