3. Stream 'Yesterday Once More 3' from KLPAC

Price: RM35, RM50, RM100 (Patron of the Arts)
Besides food, drinks and gifts, make this Father’s Day a meaningful one to remember by treating dad to an online performance of all-time popular Golden Oldies! Under the [email protected] banner, KLPAC and The Actors Studio will be serving up favourites from the 40s to the 60s—the glorious age of swing, big band and jazz music. Expect hits by Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, The Drifters, Dean Martin, Judy Garland, Bee Gees and more, with highlights including 'Besame Mucho', 'Some Enchanted Evening' and 'Only the Lonely'.
Directed by Ian Chow, the performance will feature a group of local talents backed by a five-piece band comprising Jing Xiuan (music director/keyboardist), Lee Hui Yin (second keyboardist), Coebar Abel (lead guitarist), Alex Lee (percussionist) and bassist Iqbal R. Not only will you be treating dad (and yourself) to a walk down memory lane, you’ll also be supporting the Covid-19 Relief Fundraising for the local theatre industry and the staff, artistes and crew keeping it alive.

4. Share a dram with your old man
If you already know that whisky is the way to make your dad’s day but aren’t quite sure which one to purchase, check out this handy whisky gift guide. Whether your old man appreciates the finer things in life or is the coolest man on the block, there’s a whisky (or two) that will tipple his fancy (pun intended). Aside from your own pops, consider getting a bottle for that father figure you look up to or that friend in your life who’s just entered fatherhood—heaven knows they could use a dram this F/MCO.
5. Surprise dad with a gift set from The St Regis Kuala Lumpur
Where: Astor Bar and The Brasserie, The St Regis Kuala Lumpur
Price: From RM228+ per set
The St Regis Kuala Lumpur has curated three unique gifting experiences to surprise your dearest father with. For the competitive dad, why not challenge him to a friendly cocktail competition at home with a Limited Edition Cocktail Kit? Each set comes with two 5cl bottles of The Macallan Double Cask 12 Year Old, juices and syrups, a cocktail shaker, bar spoon, jigger, recipes of exquisite cocktails from Astor Bar, plus a competition guide and score sheet.
If dad’s more of the type to take things slow and easy, treat him to a Father’s Day Brunch featuring dishes like a Buffalo Mozzarella Salad, Seabass en Croute, Pan-seared Smoked Duck Breast, Braised Lamb Shank, desserts and more. To add a personal touch to your gift, you can also purchase The Brasserie’s Steak Kit to prep and cook for dad at home.

6. Watch 'Fatherhood' on Netflix
When: Starting 18 June 2021
Since going out is not an option, spend quality time with dad at home and catch a new programme on Netflix. Better yet, watch a Father’s Day special like Fatherhood, starring the famed actor and comedian Kevin Hart. The film is based on a true story about the struggles of fatherhood through the lens of a widower, where the protagonist Matthew Logelin (Kevin) navigates his way to be the father his daughter needs. Just a word of caution—you may want to prepare tissues beforehand.
