Havoc at #YouthUnitedFest2014 !

Another festival post?! Oh yes, I became a party queen last weekend. Attended one festival after another. Can't complain, it was quite fun. :D 

Youth United Festival 2014, presented by Honor 6, was held in stadium Melawati, Shah Alam, open carpark area. It was a day filled with celebrities, performances, sports, arts, music, food and so much more! 

The first thing that was compulsory for me to check out was the YouthZibition, generated by Gen. Y Harian Metro. Students from all over Malaysia exhibited their work on photography, paintings and illustrations, and print graphics. My friend, Suresh, was one of the contestant and his iPhoneography work is really amazing! You can see all his creative cafe shots by following him on Instagram
