Local television channel 8TV will be airing an exciting new documentary programme ‘Wonder Explorer’ on the 19th November 2011 ( Saturday) at 6pm. The programme aims to introduce and spread the awareness amongst younger generations about the colourful richness of Chinese culture in Malaysia.
‘Wonder Explorer’ showcases the importance of appreciation for the diminishing local Chinese culture and custom as more of the younger generation migrate to urban areas in today’s fast paced world, leaving behind the treasure of knowledge from the olden days. The programme identifies the importance to re-capture the evergreen beauty of our valuable traditional Chinese art and cafts and seeks to restore its former glory and honor amongst the Chinese community in Malaysia.
The programme’s host, with the help of a youth guest host, will bring viewers through the experience on how beautiful art forms come to be and survive to its continued evolvement in Malaysia.
Kechara Saraswati Arts was invited to be featured in one of their episodes as the foundation of our organisation is grown based on rich Tibetan culture. The 6 hours filming took place with Paul presenting to programme hostess Yoon and guest host Forest the beautiful traditional culture of Tibetan art and crafts.
In this unique episode viewers will be able to experience personally the process of making a Tsa Tsa and the intriguing details involved in painting the statue of Buddha. For those with an interest in jewelries, you would not want to miss the opportunity to learn the jewelry making process demonstrated by Helena. Kechara Saraswati Arts is so appreciative that another window is made available to showcase Tibetan art and crafts that it has arranged for Pat to share the techniques of making a Pandit Hat of Lama Tsongkhapa.
It is with hope that viewers will learn to appreciate the past and present contributions of the older generation in their continues effort to preserve this rich heritage and custom in order for the younger generations of our time to do the same.
