7 Things to do this weekend: 9 & 10 October 2021
What’s up, October?
1. Support breast cancer awareness with a Pink Afternoon Tea
As October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, why not show your support for the annual campaign by enjoying a Pink Afternoon Tea with some friends or family? The occasion will serve as a timely reminder for your loved ones to perform a breast examination, while also providing space for conversations around breast health—over delightful sweet and savoury treats, no less. Plus, every purchase of a set may include proceeds towards a local organisation to support research and initiatives to raise awareness and prevent breast cancer.

2. Try the limited edition Laneige X Licky Chan creations
When: From 1 October onwards
Where: Licky Chan
In conjunction with Laneige’s 27th anniversary, the beloved Korean skincare brand has teamed up with local ice cream shop Licky Chan to introduce two limited-edition ice cream flavours inspired by its new, limited-edition Lip Sleeping Masks. Sharing the namesake of the cult-favourite lip products, the two flavours include Peach Iced Tea and Gummy Bear, made with fresh milk from a farm in Pahang.
Meanwhile, the limited-edition Lip Sleeping Masks will be available from 1 October onwards at Laneige boutiques and counters, Laneige Social Store on Facebook, Laneige Official Online Store, Laneige official store on Lazada, Shopee, Zalora, Hermo and GrabMart for RM75 each.
3. Sip on Malaysia’s award-winning whiskey, Timah
Despite being in the market since last year, Timah—Malaysia’s first and best whiskey—celebrated its official launch yesterday. On top of the remarkable feat of producing a whiskey (blended and bottled) here in Malaysia, the double-peated blend has also won a Gold Medal for the Best Malaysian Whisky in the International Whisky Competition, and two Silver Medals at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) and International Wine and Spirit Competition. It's touted as a light and fruity whiskey with a faint floral bouquet that settles into a sweet, light oak finish.
