If you’re health-conscious and live near Mont Kiara, there’s a new urban neighbourhood grocer you should check out for your daily needs. Enter Qra, a health-driven supermarket chain which has just opened its third store at Arcoris. Spanning 15,000 square feet, the store advocates an “Eat Well. Live Well” concept with farm-to-shelf fresh produce, a bulk food section, kombucha on tap, Malaysian artisanal brands, and carefully curated grocery items.
In line with the brand’s social and environmentally responsible efforts, the store will support the Food Aid Foundation and compost food waste in partnership with Ground Control. This is on top of its initiative to minimise wasteful packaging through its bulk food section, where shoppers may purchase items in custom quantities. Besides shopping, there’s a café featuring Australian brunch dishes and Malaysian-inspired favourites, as well as a dedicated space for customisable wrapping services with handpicked fresh flowers.

4. Celebrate a Springtime Odyssey with Roku Gin
When: 11 April to 31 May 2022
The House of Suntory’s premium Japanese craft gin brand, Roku Gin, is celebrating the joy of springtime with an arsenal of cocktails created in collaboration with 10 of Klang Valley’s leading bars and restaurants. Each establishment has curated a range of original cocktails, inspired by Roku Gin’s key botanical—the prized sakura flower.
This iconic flower is harvested at the peak of spring for maximum quality and flavour, lending the gin its signature delicate floral aroma and sweet body. The brand’s artisans then employ the centuries-old tradition of Monozukuri in the detailed process of harvesting, infusing and distilling the gin to combine the floral sakura notes with Sencha and Gyokuro teas, before rounding it off with a refreshing yuzu top note and spicy Japanese Sansho Pepper.
Visit these 10 establishments while you can to try their unique interpretations of a Roku Gin spring experience!
