This Saturday is called Crazy.

I am undecided. For the first time (after yonkers) it finally feels like KL is waking up from her hibernation. There's such an awesome line-up of events this Saturday, I can feel her tentacles gripping me and I'm torn in deciding which one to be at.

Well, there's KL Design Week 2010 happening and if you're a fan of Japan's innovative design, you should be at the National Art Gallery for these exhibitions.

: Creative Magazines :
: Japan Media Arts Festival :
: Tokyo Visualist :
: Japan Young Illustrators Exhibition :
: Devil Robots - Toy Exhibition, and :

If you can't catch it this week, there's still the next.

In conjunction with KLDW2010, there's also Pecha Kucha for KL which is as good as TED Talks to some ardent followers of the world's most innovative thinkers and creators - 20 images in 20 seconds. That's happening at CapSquare (urgh, I hate that place) from 8pm onwards.

And then, for those who have had a stressful weekend, you can laugh it off and out loud with two of Malaysia's funniest personalities - Joanne Kam and Jit Murad. Be warned, if you're gonna be uptight, then maybe you should hang out somewhere else. Happening in conjunction with PJ Laugh Fest, PJLA, Jaya One.

And then for those who have a bit more finesse and into all that jazz, there's the Miri Jazz Festival teaser show at The Apartment at KLCC, starting from 8.30pm.

And last but not least, I got an invitation from a dear friend to go for a talk organised by FGT on 'How to not date a Loser'. Er... okay... I think she's trying to send me a message...

Shucks, what to do what to do. Well, I'm definitely up for Pecha Kucha because you probably get only one chance to attend these sort of events in this remote part of the world. And definitely get a nostalgic and inspirational slice of Japan design media. Maybe, I'll pass that laugh for Actorlympics, and go to Miri instead for the real deal, and make a mental note to stop dating Losers. There. Decided.
