7 Things you can do this weekend: 17 & 18 November 2018

1. Wipe Out 2.0 at Cherating Beach, 16 – 18 Nov 2018

Unlike what its name suggests, it has nothing to do with that TV show and is really a surf and lifestyle festival held annually at Cherating Beach in Kampong Cherating, Pahang. The trip, however, will be worth it, especially if you like beach activities or just plain interested in taking up surfing.

From the Kelab Punching Ikan beach boxing challenge (contestants dress in fish costumes to spar and tackle each other down to the ground) to Volley Sarong (a beach volleyball tournament where participants have to wear a sarong) to beach yoga, it’ll be worth that road trip just to do something different this weekend. There’ll also be workshops such as doing tie-dye or making pottery; as well as a Surf Clinic.

Free admission. For more info, visit their Instagram.


2. Artbox Malaysia at Sunway City Outdoor Open Air Carpark, 3pm – 11pm, 9 – 11 Nov 2018

If you missed it, here’s the last weekend to catch it. Known for its unique layout featuring shipping containers, Thailand’s iconic market, Artbox will be held in Malaysia for the first time with over 300 vendors and partners from Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.

Free admission. For more info, visit the website.


3. Weekly Community Yoga with Robyn Lau at APW Bangsar, 9am – 10am, 17 Nov 2018

Nothing like a good stretch to start the weekend and this yoga community class is great for all levels.

4. Riuh x Urbanscapes at the River of Life, KL City, 4pm – 10pm, 17 & 18 Nov 2018

One of the city’s most popular event is joining forces with Urbanscapes to bring a #riuhbytheriver — specifically, the River of Life near the historic Sultan Abdul Samad Building. As usual, expect pop-up stores, food stalls, creative activities, live acts and more.

5. Sizzling Sundays BBQ at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur, 12pm – 3pm, 18 Nov 2018

6. Kuala Lumpur Ukulele Festival 2018 at Commune @ Sunway Velocity, 10am – 8pm, 17 & 18 Nov 2018

7. Make a reservation for an exclusive French dining experience at Prime @ Le Meridien KL

Having gained experience working at Lyon’s famous 3-Michelin-starred restaurant owned by the late Paul Bocuse, Chef Walter Ishizuka has carved a culinary style of his own combining classic French fare with a touch of his Japanese heritage. The result is a creative cuisine that is bold in flavours yet still pay tribute to its core: the ingredients.

An example of his signature dish would be the Sea Bass with Truffle Polenta and Ponzu Swiss Chard and if the sound of that is enough for you to salivate, then know this is your chance to have a taste of his cooking style as Ishizuka is coming to Prime at Le Meridien KL from 21 – 25 November.
