IIMS 2011

This year I managed to go to the annual motor show, Indonesia International Motor Show at Pekan Raya Jakarta Kemayoran. Many cars were showcased, and the event is also filled with music performances and competitions. I participated in the photo competition organised by VKool, which features one of my favourite models, Alexa:

Then, there are the cars:

Some of the exhibitors also have music performances at their booths. When I was there, the young singer Raisa Andriana performed:

Also the new girlband, 7 Icons:


Java Jazz 2011- Sunday

Ah….the second day of My Java Jazz. This would be different compared to Saturday. I got my ticket through for free. I got it for free because I was selected and among the lucky 300 people that qualified and able to participate for the photo hunting during the music festival.

My first stop this time is the Magnum’s booth. I ordered an ice cream coated in dark chocolate with toppings of cookie crumbs. The ice cream is so good… especially with the weather getting very warm.

Next stop is Drew at Nokia Hall. For the music festival, the band’s performance also featuring 2 guest stars, Bayu Risa and Kaka from Slank. I got myself a good spot, which is just right in front of the stage. I was even able to put my hand on the stage. I wish I had a super wide lens with me. That would give a really good effect. Instead I was using my trusted 24-105 lens, with the widest aperture at 4.0.

And here is the surprise guest, Kaka from Slank:

Fariz RM is the next performance in Axis Hall. I had a chance to test my new monopod. I got a spot in front row, but from the side. Fariz RM shared the stage with Barry Likumahua & Friends and Erwin Gutawa Big Band.

Throughout the day I also saw performances on various stages, including outdoor, halls and inside some of the booths. I saw performances by Fraya, Jamie Lidell, Everette Harp and Bobby Lyle, Eric Darius, Nengah and Nanda, Sierra, Lucky and many others.

It has been a fun weekends enjoying the music and running around carrying my camera and gears. I noted on their website that they had set the dates for next year’s Java Jazz.
