    Don’t I wish to be in Singapore during that time. Am not Indian or Pakistani but am fascinated with world culture and tradition. Love the splash of colours and the music of Pakistan!

    The event looks really interesting! But I don’t think I’m free to travel over to Singapore at that time as I’m Malaysia based.

    All in one place. Datang jauh dari Pakistan, untuk mempersembahkan seni teater, makanan, fashion dan sebagainya. Alangkah bagusnya kalau festival ini ada di Malaysia.
