7 Things you can do in KL (or at home) this CMCO weekend: 1 & 2 May 2021

1. Wet & Licky

When: 1 May 2021, Saturday

Time: 4pm till late

Where: Wet Deck, Level 12 @ W Kuala Lumpur

Two of the hottest spots in town are coming together for an enjoyable collaboration. Licky Chan is an up-and-coming ice cream parlour in the city, known for its wacky flavours and Instagrammable aesthetic. And W Kuala Lumpur is synonymous with its fun energy. Together, expect an afternoon (turned evening and then, night) of ice cream by the pool. We hear there’ll be some exciting flavours to try—including boozy ones too! Be sure to stay past 6pm cos that’s when ice cream and Barcardi cocktails will be served.

2. Order in of Chef Wan’s Ramadhan sharing sets

Prefer to stay at home this weekend? Liven it up with Smartbite’s collaboration with De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan—delectable Ramadhan feasts for the family, featuring only the best classic Malay dishes. There are two sets (RM248+ and RM368+ respectively) to choose from, and each serves enough for up to four to five people. Expect tantalising items such as Chef Wan’s famous Ikan Jenahak, the fan-favourite Daging Puteri Manis and the signature Ayam Pencok. Are you salivating yet?

4. “Let’s Mess Up Luigi’s Kitchen”—a one-night-only culinary mashup

Price: RM588 per person

Some of the best chefs in KL are coming together to, well, mess up the kitchen of Luigi Stinga, Chef de Cuisine of Mandarin Grill. That’s what friends do, right? But instead of a real mess, diners will get to enjoy a unique seven-course degustation menu, transporting your senses from Asia to Europe. Chef Luigi will be joined by Jun Wong of Kikubari, Chai Chun Boon of Copper, Tyson Gee of Atas – Modern Malaysian, Lroy Lim of Willow, and Jeff Ramsey of Japas. It’s a stellar line-up, complemented by guest bartender Giovanni Andrea Magliaro of Frank’s Bar with his delicious cocktails that boasts his unmistakable flair.

5. Donate your unwanted denim pieces for a good cause

Where: The Gardens Mall

A little help goes a long way so, if you have any unwanted denim pieces lying around, drop them off at the South Palm (Ground Floor) of The Gardens Mall. The collected items will then be donated to the single mothers of Suri, a social enterprise that employs single mothers from low-income communities. The women will transform the material into new clothes and other household items. That’s helping two causes: the women in need and the environment.

6. Riuh Raya/Tiffin Ber-Riuh Raya
