Batik Painting at Central Market!

It is a short school holiday, thanks to the National Independent Day, kids have a week long break so I decided to take a few days off to arrange for a short trip. Time to learn more about our own homeland through cuti-cuti Malaysia, which literarily means travel in Malaysia.  :)

(Of course I may opt to leave them in the day care, but what better way to learn but to walk the walk and experience the outside world?)

We have one extra day before the planned trip, to fully utilize the promotion period (until 31/8) for the newly launched MRT line which links the urbur townships from Sungai Buloh to Kajang with the city center and other parts of the Klang Valley I decided to take the duo to Central Market, or better know to the local as Pasar Seni (central art market) for a visit, and to get our hands dirty with some batik painting. I have read about it sometimes ago and the reviews were mostly good. So here we were, paid just $1.80 (adult) and $0.90 (kids 6y and albvoe) for the comfortable ride from Damansara Mutiara station (eCurve) and reached straight to Pasar Seni station.

We approached the friendly information counter staff and asked for direction (save us time to search!), and Aina Artwork Studio  was easy to locate -just head straight and it's at the end of the exit door.

We choose our frame each - RM10 for a small frame and RM15 for a big frame, there were plenty of template designs to choose from, E picked a Nemo fish while C was insistent with hisbiscus flowres, and I was attracted to the Helaconia drawing which reminded me of our garden.

After a brief introduction by the helpful staff. We started painting right away.

Painting time! C painted her hibiscus leaves in different shades of green.

Everyone was so concentrated to make the best painting, just look at E..

Cute little Nemo fish by E.

And we were all done 30 minutes later!

Pretty happy with their creations. Not bad for a first timer:))

If you are interested to try out this DIY activities too, just head straight to Pasar Seni & look for Aina Artwork. They open 7 days a week, from 10am - 9pm except some special public holidays such as Merdeka Day or Hari Raya.

The collage below shows the progress of my helaconia painting.. it's indeed pretty easy as we were "guided" by the template made with wax (that would be the next class I aim to join - batik drawing with wax!)

Before leaving, we decided to be tourists for a day - let's shoot a picture for memory! :))

Authentically Malaysian - 3D heritage buidling postcards! 

Happy Merdeka, my fellow Malaysian!
