Quite an Arty Week Indeed

OMG! Am I having the the worst case of Monday blues ever!!! Moving on... This week is lined with must-dos starting Wednesday for art lovers in KL. ~A line-up some Johoreans would kill for! ~ Guess there's nothing like having a bunch of stuff to see and do to get us kick-started.

Mit has shown at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2006) and most recently, Ver Gallery, Bangkok.
