Changing lives in war-torn Afghanistan

This article about the Afghan Mobile Mini Circus for Children was printed in The Straits Times on 26 January 2012. This non-profit organisation "helps children develop their creativity and confidence through the performing arts" such as "juggling, unicycling and stilt walking, as well as singing, dancing, puppetry and skits with educational content". Additionally the children are equipped with "practical skills to navigate life" in war-torn Afghanistan.

In 2002, after the oppressive Taleban regime had fallen, t
he founders of the circus had set out to "bring (back) laughter to the children in Afghanistan". Prior to its fall, the Taleban regime had "banned music, singing and other forms of artistic expression in Afghanistan for decades".

Juggled at Grand Opening of Restaurant

This newly launched art gallery and restaurant looks like it will take both art-lovers and restaurant-goers to higher planes of enjoyment. When I was there to juggle at the grand opening of the establishment, I saw its rooms filled with artworks for the enjoyment of diners. Surely dining there would be a sensorial delight!
