MoMo’s hotel has been a hub for many events including markets, open mic night, beer pong game night, and eating competition—you name it. This month, they’re adding a new exciting event to the list with Picnic at MoMo’s which will be available for booking by a maximum of four people starting July 1. The social hotel has transformed its rooms into a bright, light and airy space to imitate the outdoors, with comfortable floor seating and an adorable tepee for the ‘gram’.

Returning to work after two years of lockdown hasn’t been easy and readjusting to the new norm is harder than many of us thought it would be. What we used to do on the daily has become more challenging to keep up with and let’s admit it—we’re all craving a getaway. In partnership with The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel, Monkey Shoulder knows exactly what hustlers need and they’re inviting you to the ultimate ‘Out-Of-Office-Retreat’ for a much-needed staycation. Designed to help guests disconnect from work, the retreat offers a host of fun perks to refresh your mind from the exhausting grind with a range of amenities including a game of Monkey Twist and your very own bartending cart stocked up with mixers, garnishes, and of course, Monkey Shoulder.

3. Customise the burger of your dreams at Five Guys

A burger can be made up of anything, but it *should* be made up of everything you love.

Of course, a meal at Five Guys is not complete without the brand's milkshake. With over 1,000 unique flavour combinations and eight mix-in fresh fruit flavours to choose from, you can create your own blend to complement your hearty meal. If you’re indecisive (like me), try their crowd-favourite flavours of Oreo, Strawberry, and Snickers!
