After months of hard work, the Opening night had arrived. The cavases were perfectly aligned, the Emu eggs perched neatly on it's stand, the photos tucked nicely in it's frame and the skateboards placed high on it's wall. The night had come for Crooked Rib to exhibit their work.

Family and friends arrived en masse. The CR crew were scattered to their specific stations: Some had to meet and greet the guests as they came in, others served food and drinks and the remaining talked guests through the art pieces.

Many were surprised at the quality of the artwork. We didn't know whether to be flattered or taken aback. Many artists were commended for their talent and hard work. Some were even asked whether their artwork was up for sale. This has yet to be discussed.

We, Crooked Rib would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for coming and supporting us. To our family and friends, Jazakallah Khair.

Absent: Sarah Mahri and Faza Fauzi
