7 Things you can do this weekend: 19-21 February 2016
It's almost here
1. 'Six Hands Dinner' at Cantaloupe by Troika Sky Dining, Fri and Sat
Valentine's Day may be over but that doesn't mean you can't head out to a fancy restaurant and try something new and special. For the first time ever, Cantaloupe at Troika Sky Dining is bringing together three talented chefs (thus, six hands)—Executive Chef and Director Christian Bauer, Spanish Chef Alvar Ayuso Thorell of Alvart (Barcelona) and Singaporean Chef Jet Lo of Ding Dong—to create a menu of nine scintillating courses for one gastronomical meal. It's also a first for the three chefs to be collaborating together as they curate a menu that elegantly balances each of their culinary styles. Expect tantalising dishes such as Chef Lo's Crispy Duck Curry with Cauliflower and Passion Fruit, Chef Thorell's Sea Urchin Royale with Seaweed and Raifort and Chef Bauer's Vanilla Sponge Cake, Truffle Jus, Apricot Jus, Foie Gras Snow.
The menu is priced at RM420++ per person and includes wine pairing for 9 courses. Seating is limited so be sure to make a reservation either online or call 03-2162 0886.
2. Project Fried Chicken with Kim Chick, Fri and Sat
Enjoy an indulging set meal for a good cause—now doesn't that sound like a great weekend? The Big Group's charity dining initiative Project B, which is a collaboration with the Dignity for Children Foundation and Berjaya Cares Foundation, has teamed up with New York sensation Chef Sung Kim for a two-night pop-up at their Sentul-based restaurant with a menu that injects both Chef Sung's heritage Korean flavours—Korean fried chicken, kimchi, rice cakes, japchae dumplings and bingsu—and a Malaysian favourite—nasi lemak.
3. Crackhouse Comedy Club Presents Douglas Lim, 9pm - 11pm, Sat
Had a tough week? Let popular Malaysian stand-up comedian, Douglas Lim fill you up with sex, drugs and Rock'n'Roll—without any actual sex, drugs or Rock'n'Roll but only a fun-filled show of jokes and laughter—for one night only at Crackhouse Comedy Club.

4. Yoga for Runners, 2pm - 5pm, Sun
Remember that time when we reviewed Vinyasa Vibes yoga at Organica Lifestyle for our #FitnessFridays series? Well, now you can have a taste of it for yourself at their Yoga for Runners workshop which will be a Vinyasa-style flow, focusing on coordinating breath and movement. It's the perfect cross training and recovery activity, and especially if you're a runner, the workshop will help increase your flexibility, strengthen leg muscles, relieve soreness and more. You'll even be able to take home a worksheet of tips and stretches to pair with your training or workouts.
The workshop is priced at RM120 and spots are limited so be sure to get your tickets here.
Still not over Chinese New Year (well, it is still ongoing) and still not over tossing yee sang? Good; we've found four special yee sang variations you can toss at Pavilion KL itself. There's one that serves purely cured pork belly in it, a Thai version, a Japanese version and one that uses smoked salmon instead.
New York Fashion Week AW16 is in overdrive and there's just so much to absorb and if you've been missing out, don't worry because we've got you covered by Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 (and more to come), as well as the street style looks spotted this season.
Things are always more fun when there's company, and that includes exercising. You don't need a lot of gear and it doesn't have to be at the gym. And the best part is, you are each other's motivation and cheerleader for a fitter and healthier body.
