No plans? No worries

This weekend, choose to either work out your body or work up your creative mind

1. Acrylic Painting Workshop at Academy, Bangsar, 9am - 1pm, Sat

Creating your own art pieces is easier than you think. Acrylic painting, for example, is the most versatile form there is-it's fast, colourful and fun. Give it a go and you'll be going home with three final pieces of art on wood, cardboard and canvas. 

The workshop is priced at RM398 nett per person. For more information, visit their Facebook event page.

2. The Alphabet Press' 10th anniversary party for the Traveler's Notebook, 2pm - 5pm, Sat

Do you have a penchant for paper, stationery and journaling? Whether you're already a proud owner of Traveler's Notebooks or looking to start, you'll find all the tips and items for sale at this event. There will also be an unlimited stamping session and letterpress demo by TAP where you'll get to have a 'freshly-made' bookmark as a souvenir. 

For more information, visit their Facebook event page.

3. Literary Evening: Book Launch of Nouvelles De Malaisie at Alliance Française de Kuala Lumpur, 6pm, Sat

If you love the beautiful French language, you might enjoy Nouvelles de Malaisie, a collection of short stories about Malaysia in French. Four of the book authors-Tash Aw, Shih-Li Kow, Anwar Ridhwan and Saharil Hasrin Sanin-will also be there to read some extracts, engage in conversations with the guests and of course, sign the books. 

Entrance is free. Register at [email protected] or for more information, visit their Facebook event page

4. Functional Training Community Class at lululemon athletica Kuala Lumpur, 10am, Sat

5. Strala Yoga at The Fox Den, 3pm - 4pm, Sat

Learn the basics of yoga with NYC's Strala Yoga, which was founded by Tara Stiles and Mike Taylor. It's easygoing with no Sanskrit or chanting involved-just lots of deep breathing and good feelings. 

The registration fee is RM10 and you'll need to bring your own yoga mat. For more information or to register, visit their website.

6. Try out Sitka Studio's twice-a-month's tasting menu

From the same minds of Sitka Restaurant comes Sitka Studio, a place that practises the same culinary beliefs but with a more innovative and playful twist.
