Dining

Crazy Rich Asians
This year, Sheraton PJ keeps it old-school with six traditional mooncake flavours.

This year’s Mooncake Festival is a little more than a month away — the 24th of September. While we love the innovation of snow skin mooncakes and ice cream mooncakes, nothing quite beats a piece of traditionally-made mooncake. You can buy some for yourself or gift them to family members with our guide to the 10 best traditional mooncakes in town.

Style

Crazy Rich Asians

The Crazy Rich Asians movie is finally going to be aired in our Malaysian cinemas. Last week, we saw the all-Asian cast during the movie’s grand premiere in Los Angeles. All eyes were on what they wore to grace the red carpet, but what our eyes were focused on were the Asian designers they chose to wear during the event. We broke down the Asian designers they wore, including Carmen Soo who dazzled the premier in a number by our very own Melinda Looi.
