This weekend's list of events includes: A bazaar and forum dedicated to the celebration of women, a fitness festival and a few delicious plans for the foodies

1. Enjoy a new cuppa of flavours with Nespresso's new Limited Edition variants

Coffee lovers, it's time to take a step back into the past and discover the birthplace of the coffee houses in Istanbul and Venice. No history lesson required; just your tastebuds and an appreciation for coffee. Inspired by these two places, Nespresso created two new Limited Edition variants—Cafe Istanbul and Caffe Venezia.

The former is strong and exotic on the nose while on the palate, it's intense, beautifully roasted with black pepper spicy notes. Perfect as an espresso or Americano, but works well with milk too. As for Caffe Venezia, it's fragrant with wild and floral notes, and elegant with every sip. Have it as a latte and it's well-rounded and smooth. 

Both Cafe Istanbul and Caffe Venezia will be available for a limited time period and is available online as well as at:

  • Nespresso Boutique at The Gardens Mall (1st Floor)
  • Nespresso Pop-Up store at 1 Utama Shopping Centre (Old Wing Centre Court)
  • Sunway Pyramid

SPOT (Soroptimist Puberty Organising Toolkit) is a volunteer initiative that started back in 2014 with the aim to educate young women on "relevant puberty and sexual abuse prevention information", and encourage them to have a "positive attitude towards reproductive health, personal and social development".

In conjunction with the celebration of International Women's Day, SPOT will be hosting this forum to highlight their experiences running sexuality education workshops in Malaysia as well as hold panel discussions on the changing narrative surrounding women's roles at home, in their communities and in society. They will also launch Spotline, a volunteer-run 24/7 sexuality education call centre for the public.

4. Indulge in a taste of Queensland Grain Fed Beef at Chambers Grill @ Hilton KL, till 31 March 2019

There are two words that can perfectly describe this exclusive beef produced by the Stanbroke Farms: Tender and flavoursome. Exclusively imported this month only, enjoy it on its own or have it with the Victorian Black Angus to experience the difference between the two. A definite accompaniment, however, would be a glass of the Australian Barossa Valley wine.
