7 Things to do this weekend in the Klang Valley: 26 & 27 February

So many things to do, so little time

It's been a stressful week and we think a little fun is long overdue. From exciting exhibitions to unique gastronomic pop-ups and collabs, The BURO Weekend Guide has all the deets for the restless soul

1) Shop Adidas’ new re-engineered sports bra collection

Following a study revealing that 44 per cent of female respondents experienced movement-related breast pain due to a lack of breast support, Adidas set out to redefine its product offering to support the needs of active women. After extensive research and development, the brand recently unveiled its latest sports bra collection, comprising 43 styles across 18 product franchises.

The collection features Everyday bras designed for lounging and mild movement; Studio bras for yoga, Pilates, and other low-to-mid intensity activity; Train bras designed to provide enhanced support required for HIIT and more intense sports activities; and Run bras that offer the highest level of breast support in the collection.

“The moment I tried on the Coreflow Luxe Studio Medium Support Bra, I was impressed by how soft the fabric felt on my skin. It has a nice contoured fit that’s lightweight and comfortable, while still providing the support I needed for my at-home workout. Thankfully, It’s as easy to remove as it is to put on, which is a huge plus after the awkward experiences I have had with some sports bras. The chalky brown colour and strappy back are also quite unique, which speaks for the brand’s attention to detail in designing activewear that doesn’t just support performance, but also makes the wearer look and feel good. I’d definitely consider buying another piece from the range.” —Natalie Khoo, Lifestyle Editor

This Saturday, it's pairing up with Public School KL to take over KLoé Hotel’s bi-weekly music sharing and listening soiree. Expect a special selection of beats while paying homage to the seven-inch vinyl record, aka the 45.

The culmination of a project that started with an open call back in 2020, the Exposure+ by Canon exhibition is a multi-venue event that sees the works of 11 Malaysia-based artists and their take on the theme ‘Belong’, alongside the curated exhibition of five international photographers. The brainchild of internationally-published photographers, Nadhirah Zakariya and Steven Lee, this exhibition aims to encourage more people to view photography as an art form and means of expression.

Some notable exhibits to check out: ‘I’m Every Woman’ by Vaneesha Krishnasamy that reimagines and celebrates the everyday Dravidian women, as well as Anouchka Renaud-Eck’s ‘Ardhanariashvara—In Search of Union’ that explores the notion of matrimony in India and how it has been ingrained in its natives at a young age (both located at Level 1, GMBB).
