Tumi is no stranger to pop-up stores, so it's no surprise when the popular luxury travel brand decided to take it up a notch and launch the Tumi Virtual Store for customers in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Within the store are interactive touchpoints, Tumi's Magic Mirror and mini-games to play. To imitate a physical store experience, visitors can shop or browse the latest Spring 2021 collection via 360° 3D and AR implementations. There is also a Chat & Shop function should there be any queries.

Take a trip via https://virtualstore.tumi-asia.com/.

3. Visit "Fortunes in Hong Kong"

If you're missing the metropolitan city as much as we are, this could be the second closest thing you can get to experiencing Hong Kong again. The first thing would be dim sum, in our opinion. In light of Chinese New Year, the Hong Kong Tourism Board is hosting a "Fortunes in Hong Kong" CNY campaign where you can check out a creative online market, play a virtual game to test your luck, read up on feng shui tips and more.

6. Grab a bottle of Timah, Malaysian's award-winning whiskey

While we're all proud of our food, here's another item to add to that #MalaysianPride list. In case you haven't heard, Timah is a Malaysian-produced whiskey that has won a few global awards. As the country's first double-peated blend, Timah first won its Silver medal in the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC). More recently, it picked a silver at the British-based International Spirits Challenge awards. It garnered such raving reviews and recognition that Timah was actually sold out for a while, but the good news is that it's now available in limited stock. As for its taste profile, it's known to be a light and fruity whiskey with a faint floral bouquet at the top before settling into a sweet, light oak finish. This one's definitely a keeper.

SHOP ONLINE: Timah Double Peated Blended Whiskey, RM190
