Arriving at the scene around 6pm on Saturday, I was immediately drawn towards the performance by the Chung Hwa Marching Band. They were playing a personal fave of mine: The Phantom of the Opera‘s “Music of the Night“!
They’re really really talented! And the conductor is a girl too!

With the Band providing some really awesome sets in the background, I thought I would explore the festival grounds a little before the Concert that night began…
And guess what I saw at the food stalls?
Food of Superheroes (as per the post-credit scene of The Avengers hehe)
Looks delish huh? *drools*
The venue of the festival was perfect I think! Being by the beach, it was breezy…and the Marching Band playing the theme from Hawaii Five-O really helped set the mood for the evening.

And of course, there’s the craft bazaar which was open since 2 in the afternoon:
As the name suggests, they were selling crafts:
Beautiful & colourful bead-stuffs
Last of the kind of stalls, and definitely not at all the least, the booth of (one of) the sponsors of the Borneo Jazz Festival: Strongbow!
Are you thirsty?
Take your pick:
Prices are kinda steep though – RM4 for a 500ml bottle of water?! I think I’ll have one of the alcoholic beverages then.
