From exciting brand launches to curious food excursions, here are seven fun activities to add to your weekend plans:
1. Shop for Amollite jewellery at the first Kaimirra Tutan store in Malaysia
Where: Mid Valley Megamall ( S-043 & 043A, Second floor, East Atrium)
Explore the wondrous history and magnificent beauty of the Ammolite gemstone at Kaimirra Tutan’s flagship store, located in Mid Valley Megamall. It’s the brand’s first-ever store in the entire Southeast Asia region, and the interiors are nothing short of grand. The store’s facade is characterised by hieroglyphs adorning the ceiling trims, portraits of pharaohs, and Egyptian-inspired jewellery designs featuring the Eye of Horus. This reflects the Ammolite’s deep history that has been traced back 71 million years ago and was worn by Egyptian royalty.
At Kaimirra Tutan, customers can find timeless, one-of-a-kind pieces that range from daily minimalist designs to grand statement pieces. You can also shop with peace of mind, knowing that Kaimirra Tutan is dedicated to sustainable mining and extraction, meaning that the land is returned to the same state it was pre-mining through the re-plotting and re-grassing of the area. Only found in one region of Canada, Ammolite is the world’s only multi-coloured, organic gemstone.

2. Step into the future with Adidas’ new 4DFWD running shoes
Where: Adidas’ website, Adidas app, and in-store
“Runners, if you’ve been looking for a pair of running shoes to help you go the extra mile, look no further than the new Adidas 4DFWD. Launched in September, the shoes are developed from an analysis of real-world athlete data over 18 years. After evaluating five million variations of the 4D midsole technology, Adidas claims it has finally created the brand’s most advanced running shoes yet.
“Right off the bat, these must be the most striking pair of running shoes I’ve seen yet. With the attention-grabbing 4D midsole and modern grey, purple and orange hues, they can easily pass off as lifestyle sneakers. Performance-wise, the shoes feature an industry-first bowtie-shaped lattice that transforms vertical pressure into a horizontal force—effectively translating into a smooth forward movement. Plus, the updated midsole now provides 23 per cent more cushioning than previous 4D midsole generations for improved comfort.
“Meanwhile, the new Continental outsole provides an extra grip so you can run confidently even on wet roads. What’s more, the Primeknit+ and engineered mesh upper construction provides a snug fit that’s further complemented by a new, supportive integrated heel counter. I’m no avid runner, but these shoes certainly felt comfortable and sturdy, giving my strides that boost of propulsion. Not to mention, they’re stylish too!” —Natalie Khoo, Lifestyle Editor
The 4DFWD shoes arrive in a few colourways, including a Carbon Cloud White and Impact Orange edition for men, as well as a Grey Five and Cloud White iteration for women. The shoes are now available online, via the Adidas app, and in-stores at RM899.

Therefore, you’ll be happy to know that the change comes at no extra cost (goodbye, surcharges!).
Instead, customers now have three more delicious flavours to choose from: Viet-Me-Up, a coffee lover’s dream featuring Super Saigon Vietnamese coffee, Outside Barista Blend Oat Milk, and maple syrup for an energy boost; Golden Elixir, an anti-inflammatory concoction of turmeric, cinnamon, Outside Barista Blend Oat Milk, and maple syrup; and Houji-licious, consisting of roasted Niko Neko Tsubaki Hojicha, Outside Barista Blend Oat Milk, and maple syrup that’s packed with antioxidants.
