From teamLab’s Resonating Microcosms exhibition to Gordon Ramsay’s Sunday Roast, here are seven exciting events to add to your to-do list

1. Breathe Easy with Fay Ulrica

When: Ongoing until 7 August 2022 | 12pm to 10pm

Where: Hide and Seek Coffee

Up-and-coming Sabahan artist Fay Ulrica is exhibiting her first solo exhibition titled Breathe Easy, presented by Hide and Seek Coffee. The exhibition explores the catharsis of art, portraying her attempts to express the rawest of emotions and what lies beneath through eccentric self-portraits, doodles, paintings, journal entries, and digital illustrations.

Some artworks honour her Sabahan roots, whilst others illustrated her thoughts and emotions at the toughest times of her life. Each piece tells a different story that many can resonate with, but we’ll leave it up to you to hear it from Ulrica herself. For some refreshments to bring along with you throughout the viewing, grab a cup of coffee from Godspeed Coffee, who will be taking over the bar until Sunday. Serving artisanal coffee brewed with the finest beans, we guarantee you’d want a second cup.

For more information, follow @fayulrica on Instagram or schedule a private viewing here.

4. Practise self-care with Seaforest's sustainable supplements

When: August onwards

Where: Seaforest website

If you've been looking for ways to improve your health, nutrition, and lifestyle, consider adding health supplements to your diet. Leading Malaysian health consumer company Polylab Biotech has just launched Seaforest—a local wellness brand offering a range of clean, all-natural, plant-based health supplements. Not only are Seaforest's products designed to nourish the mind and body with ingredients that have been backed by peer-reviewed journals, they are also made with environmental impact in mind. All supplements come in bottles that are made from FDA-approved, 100 per cent post-consumer plastic; whereas their capsules are made from organic pullulan—a vegan and non-GMO gelatin made from tapioca.

At launch, the Seaforest range comprises two supplements including the Organic Mushroom Complex, formulated to help strengthen the immune system; and the Organic Golden Turmeric, which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to improve gastrointestinal, respiratory and skin health. The brand also offers two herbal tea blends: Inner Bloom and Sweet Spot. The former is a natural blend made with chrysanthemum, senna and Garcinia Cambogia extract, which work together to support the body’s digestive processes in addition to promoting healthy weight management. On the other hand, the latter is an earthy blend of Yerba Mate leaves, chrysanthemum, and bitter melon extract—altogether supporting healthy blood sugar levels, while improving metabolism and general well-being.

5. Visit the other-worldly ‘Resonating Microcosms’ exhibition at LaLaPort Bukit Bintang

When: Ongoing until 30 November

Where: Central Rooftop Garden (L4), LaLaport Bukit Bintang

Spend your weekend enthralled by the other-worldly Resonating Microcosms exhibition from the talented artists of teamLab, bringing a sea of interactive ovoids to the Central Rooftop Garden of LaLaport Bukit Bintang. While some art exhibitions are strictly meant to be admired from a distance, TeamLab allows visitors to run wild and interact with their art. Each ovoid is fitted with sensors and LED lights that respond with a bright glow and a mesmerising sound tone when triggered by touch, breeze, or rain.

As teamLab’s Catalyst team leader Ghani describes, “For me, I want the people, especially the children, to be able to touch and interact with art, rather than looking at it from a distance. The Central Rooftop Garden of LaLaport offers just that, where the children can enjoy themselves running freely and interacting with the ovoids—seeing the colours change and listening to the sound. I hope it will make them appreciate art early.”
