Cre­at­ing new and vi­brant con­nec­tions be­tween the tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary, the past and the fu­ture, Pe­nang’s most an­tic­i­pated cul­tural festival is back. Ge­orge Town Festival (GTF), the an­nual month-long cel­e­bra­tion of arts, cul­ture, her­itage, and com­mu­nity draws thou­sands of vis­i­tors to Pe­nang each year to wit­ness and par­tic­i­pate in more than 100 events. The grand feast of mu­sic, dance, film, arts, food, and visual spec­ta­cles star­ring both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional tal­ents trans­forms the city into a global stage. Com­mu­nity ac­cess to world-class per­for­mances are af­ford­ably priced, if not free of charge. This year, GTF is also launch­ing the Arts for Hu­man­ity move­ment with an aim to create greater com­mu­nity en­gage­ment, ad­min­is­ter bet­ter ac­cess to the arts, and to ed­u­cate and fos­ter tal­ents. From July 29 to Au­gust 28 at Ge­orge Town, Pe­nang. www.george­town­fes­ti­val.com GUILTY PLEA­SURE Any­thing is good if it’s made of choco­late. Ramadan is a blessed time for giv­ing, and in cel­e­bra­tion of a sea­son of gen­eros­ity and shar­ing, Patchi is of­fer­ing a rich se­lec­tion of ready­made boxes and ar­range­ments. Whether it’s decorated choco­lates or Patchi’s sig­na­ture Ramadan spe­cialty Tasali col­lec­tion, we’re all suck­ers for these choco­late gifts. It is a unique way of reach­ing out to our loved ones, es­pe­cially if it means they can in­dulge their sweet tooths all the way through Raya.
