Start off your September with a list of inspirational events happening this weekend

1. National Geographic Channel's Uncover Malaysia exhibition at Sunway Pyramid, till 22 September 2016

Get to know a deeper side of Malaysia in the National Geographic Channel's campaign aptly titled Uncover Malaysia. While the channel will be airing 11 documentaries on Malaysian stories, the campaign is also extending itself to an exhibit consisting of 12 doors that use interactive storytelling to give the public a glimpse of what each unique story has to offer. A story that, if not told now, might perish with time. 

The Uncover Malaysia exhibition will be held at the Main Concourse of Sunway Pyramid.


2. #EhWauBulan Art Showcase at White Box, Publika, 10am - 5pm, till 7 September 2016

Celebrate 59 years of Merdeka with 59 selected inspiring artworks from our homegrown artists who come from all walks of life be it students, practicing contemporary and street artists, or retired professionals with a penchant for art. 


3. Learn how to make mooncakes at this workshop by ILOHA Culture Centre, Bangsar, 10.30am - 1.30pm, 3 September

The course will show you how to make spiral mooncakes (with egg yolk) and mini snow skin mooncakes (with yam, lotus and pandan) to bring home. From making the skin and the fillings to wrapping the yolks to kneading the colours into the skin, it'll be an eye-opening experience.
