Stay in or go out—your choice
1. Indulge in the Shiseido Afternoon Tea at The RuMa Hotel & Residences
Shiseido Professional and The RuMa Hotel & Residences has come together for a unique collaboration: The 'Sublimic Aroma inspired Afternoon Tea Set' created by Executive Chef Tyson Gee. The menu was crafted especially with the scents and key ingredients of the Sublimic range in mind, resulting in a variety of green, fruity and floral flavours. The highlights of the menu include a gorgeous Single Origin Chocolate cake filled with Chocolate Mousseline and freshly crushed macadamia (reminiscent of the Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil in the Aqua Intensive range) and the elegant multi-layered White Peach Entremet with its layers of mint flavour and orange blossom gelee (inspired by the Airy Flow range).
Besides giving your palate a treat, guests will also receive Sublimic The Mini-Aroma (a five-piece miniature kit) with every purchase of two Afternoon Tea Sets (RM150 each).
Initially set for January 2021 but paused due to MCO 2.0, the afternoon tea menu returns to Seven Lobby Bar and Lounge while adhering to the SOPs as placed by the government, such as limited two persons per table.

3. Join online workout classes to 'Move for Hope'
If you're going to work out anyway, why not do it while supporting a cause? Move for Hope is a recent fundraiser project to raise funds for refugees in KL to get better access to online education. The recipient in question is Hope Learning Centre, a refugee school in KL for students aged between three to 16 years old. With the goal of RM100,000, the funds will supply a year's worth of internet for 54 refugee families of students enrolled at the centre. Currently, the students don't have proper internet routers or are resorting to "unreliable free data plans".
How can you help? Easy. Move for Hope has teamed up with more than 40 leading figures in the fitness industry to host various online classes throughout February and March. They post their weekly schedule on Instagram, and all it takes is a minimum donation of RM30 to join the class.

4. Check out the Moving Art Gallery at Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown
If you're in the area, why not pop by Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown to view its latest art installations. A collaboration between property developer Masteron Group and L2 Gallery, the Moving Art Gallery comprises a series of installations featuring mosaic sculptures that will be showcased within the hotel throughout 2021. Every few months, guests will be treated to a visual feast that not only sparks inspiration, but conversation too, as the curation is focused on the culture and heritage of the Malaysian Chinese diaspora, with undertones of resilience and hope. The series has just kickstarted with the Return of the Mythical Red Auroch, which takes the form of a life-sized red mosaic ox placed at the hotel's entrance. Alice Chang, the artist behind it, says it symbolises strength, stability, fertility and virility. "It's looking upwards as I wanted to depict its fighting spirit. I hope he can fight off the rat!" she says.
