Petronas advertisements have been something every Malaysian looks forward to each holiday. Remember the heartwarming commercial for Hari Merdeka where primary school students Tan Hong Ming and Ummi Khazriena confessed their love for each other? The creator behind the successful advert is none other than the late Yasmin Ahmad. Netflix has decided to honour the award-winning filmmaker by bringing a slew of powerful Malaysian stories directed by her to a global audience. Expect films like Rabun, Mukhsin and Talentime on the streaming site this December.

5. Wind down after a long week at CampEveryday

After a week long of meetings and work, we understand the feeling of wanting to drop everything and go on a year-long vacation but with the travel restrictions in place, flying is the last thing you can do right now. Now you can let loose by going on a staycation at CampEveryday this weekend. The vibrant aesthetics of this home is as good as a vacation in Bali.

If you think pop music isn’t your cup of tea, this might just be the perfect genre to get into. Intense, virtuosic, and powerful, metal is arguably one of polarising yet successful genres in the music scene. Unlike your typical camps, the KL Metalcamp is driven by the aggressive sounds of guitar riffs, powerful drumming, extra low-range bass notes, and throaty vocals. This extreme metal event will showcase some of the best local metal bands such as Blackfire, Infectious Maggots, Vociferation Eternity and more.
