With the long weekend happening right as we speak, we are sure that you already have plans on how to spend it. We’re just here to help facilitate those plans with quick, TL;DR updates of what happened this week in Lifestyle Asia KL.

London Fashion Week (LFW) ended and Milan Fashion Week (MFW) begun, starting the third leg of the Spring/Summer 2018 season. If you missed our styles to steal, LFW edition, hop on over to check it out. But if passing trends aren’t your thing, then maybe you’d want to see our curated list of shoes that every woman needs in her arsenal.

We spoke a fair bit about different variations of food and beverage you need to try out too, but we’ll leave that for the rest of our cheat sheet.

Then, adjourn to another destination for the latest desserts to hit town, before finally settling on some cold, creamy nitro coffee to unwind from the day.
