2. No travel ban for these 'international cocktails'

When: Throughout March 2021

Where: Frank's Bar KL

If you're wondering, "Which Frank is this?", it's the iconic singer, Frank Sinatra, that's who! Located in the heart of KL, this speakeasy has a couple of cool drinks up its sleeve and a cosy, majestic interior to really set the mood. For the month of March, the bar has collaborated with Benjamin Cavagna of 1930 Cocktail Bar, Hiroyaru Kayama of Bar Benfiddich, Agung Prabowo of Penicillin Bar, as well as Rum Baristas Diego Ferrari & Héktor Monroy, to showcase four new 'international cocktails'. The common factor: rum.

There's a new feature in Apple Music where creators—songwriters, producers, sessions musicians—of the songs you love are all celebrated and highlighted. These very creators will, too, be able to participate in regularly updated features or be featured in some of the original content such as Lyrics to Live By and Song Stories. You'll be able to search for this content by merely keying in "Songwriter(s). Incidentally, Malaysia's Faizal Tahir Ikhwan Fattana and P. Ramlee were featured on Behind the Songs recently. If you're subscribed to Apple Music yet, know that they have a three-month free trial, but if you use Shazam on your iPhone or iPad, you'll get a five-month free trial.
