If you’re running out of options on things to do as we head into the second week of the Movement Control Order (MCO), scroll down for a few fun ideas

1. Feast on the scrumptious sizzling platter Hotel Stripes KL has to offer

Grilling and barbecuing at home can be a hassle, and don't even get us started on the aftermath that will require a lot of clean up. Hotel Stripes KL is currently offering a 'We Grill, You Chill' home delivery where you can enjoy an array of sizzling meats and barbecue combos without having to go through the trouble of preparing it at home. Let their chefs fire up the grill and cook away as you sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home.

Price: RM120+ for a platter of two

T&C:

  • All orders to be placed 24 hours in advance for delivery between 11am to 7pm
  • Complimentary delivery with a minimum order of RM200 and above (up to 10km delivery radius)

To place an order, WhatsApp +6017 395 5865 or email [email protected]

2. Get your daily dose of motivation by tuning in to HBO

Turn on your TV screens and tune in to HBO to catch the final episode of Adventure of the Ring this weekend. Adapted from the romance novel, Ring of the Day, written by mathematician and famous author Lai I-Wei, this eight-part show is directed by Nelson Yeh and Kitamura Tayoharu. It tells the story of different couples who come in contact with an engagement ring.

The story begins when Yi-Zhi's (Christ Wang) meticulously planned proposal for Lisa (Allison Lin) backfired after he misplaces the ring on the train. While the search for the ring continues, both of them re-examine their future and their love for each other, and the ring travels through the hands of multiple couples.
