7 Things do at home this weekend during CMCO: 31 October & 1 November 2020
1. Look out for the Dom Perignon Vintage 2010
Credited to the mastery that comes with experience, Dom Perignon proudly showcases their Dom Perignon Vintage 2010. The story behind this triumphant product is that it was one of the toughest years for the house's region—it saw the lowest in temperature since 1996, then a dry summer that was speckled with intense rainfall. Most wineries chose to forgo the vintage but Dom Perignon persevered, which resulted in them being one of the few champagne houses to release an exclusive 2010 vintage.
A decade in the making, this wine presents luminous sweetness of tropical fruit (melon, green mango, pineapple) followed by fresh zests of both orange and mandarin, yet finished with vibrations of spices and pepper.
The Dom Perignon Vintage 2010 will be available on 15 September 2021.
2. Donate PPE to Sabah's frontliners

Sabah needs your help in the fight against Covid-19 as the state has been seeing a huge influx of positive cases. How? Dignity for Children Foundation (Dignity) has started the ball rolling by working side-by-side with a Sabah-based organisation to distribute PPE sets to frontliners. They're looking to send a total of 2,000 sets. With your donation of just RM25, you will be supplying one set of boot covers, gown, and headgear (including the materials and logistics arrangement). Dignity has already received enough donations to make over 1,200 sets! Help them reach their goal while being a part of this amazing initiative.

3. Learn the importance of safety belts with Volvo's A Million More campaign
According to Volvo, the three-point safety belt was once dubbed a "terrible idea" when it was first introduced. In 1986 and in response to the seat belt law, the New York Times was quoted saying: "It violated individual human lives". Yet, fast forward to the present, the safety belt has clearly saved tons of lives—if not a million more, should more people were to take it as seriously as they should. Thus, Volvo Cars has unveiled a campaign titled A Million More, which highlights car safety through the years and promotes the courage needed to make bold and controversial decisions in order to save more lives.
The campaign features a new content series starring car accident survivors as they share their personal accounts and how one tiny act—wearing a seat belt—helped save their lives. That aside, Volvo Cars has also announced that all new Volvo cars, beginning 2020, will have a speed cap of 180 km/h.
