7 Things you can do this long weekend: 15 – 17 September 2018

 1. Arts & Lights — Play @ Southville City, KL South Bangi, 3pm – 9pm, every weekend till 28 October

It’s back and this time they’ve built an Instagrammable playground within a space that’s over 25,000 square feet. From Giant Jenga blocks to creative workshops to a lineup of food trucks, it’ll be child’s play for you.

For more info, visit the website.


2. Mid-Autumn Festival at Fashion Avenue, Level 3 @ Pavilion KL, 10am – 10pm

Have you bought your mooncakes yet? If not, there’s a good variety of them all in one place at Pavilion KL.

3. Riuh x Grab: Malaysia Day Weekend at Sentul Depot, 11am – 9pm, 15 & 16 September

It’s not the same Riuh as you knew it because they’re setting up at a new location this round — Sentul Depot. A colonial-brickwork building that dates back to 1905, it’s YTL Land’s hidden gem in the city and their first time unveiling it to the public. Also, Riuh will be fully cashless, utilising only GrabPay credits but there will be a special discount on all transactions made.

For more info, visit the event page.


4. Rempah Malaysia’s Best Mix at Tamarind Square, Cyberjaya, 9.16am – 9.16pm, 16 September

The event promises the usual suspects: Food, music, arts and crafts. The message, however, is the necessary diversity of Malaysia that makes the country what it is — just like how all the different rempah ratus create a delicious dish. There’ll even be a specially constructed “Heritage Street” for photo opportunities as well as for “added flavour”.

5. Malaysiaku Celebrations 2018 at Jalan Bangkung, 2pm – 10pm, 16 September

Prefer to hang around Bangsar? Jalan Bangkung is throwing its own celebrations dedicated to Malaysia Day, featuring talks, cultural performances, food and craft stalls and NGOs too.

For more info, visit the event page.


6. Five Elements: A Dining Experience at Lafite @ Shangri-La Hotel KL, 18 September – 24 November

Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water are believed to be the five elements of the universe; and they’re also the inspiration behind Shangri-La Hotel KL’s new French dining experience by its Executive Chef Oliver Pistre. From the starters to the main course to the desserts to even the wine and cocktail list, there will be three to five elemental categories to choose from. Think Escargot Cromesquis (Wood), Roasted Quail (Earth), Omelette Norwegienne Edition 2018 Flambé with Rum (Fire) and more.

Available Mondays to Fridays for lunch (12pm – 2.30pm) and dinner (7pm – 10.30pm) as well as Saturday nights. For more info on The Five Elements, call 03 2074 3900 or email [email protected].
