The Cheat Sheet: Buka puasa feasts, safari lodges, and the new Audi A4 1.4 TFSI

It has been quite a long, hectic week. And boy, are we glad that it’s over. After experiencing almost a week of heavy downpours every afternoon and evening, we just couldn’t help but look forward to driving the all-new Audi A4 1.4 TFSI on less congested roads. The faster we can get to the best buka puasa feasts in and around Kuala Lumpur, the better, right?

As we usher in the second week of Ramadan, we just can’t stop ourselves from beefing up our itineraries for our next big Raya trip at the end of the month. Just the thought of staying at exotic safari lodges in Sri Lanka or Nepal is already making us go wild with excitement.

Eat

Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur serves a yummy spread of local delights as part of its buka puasa feast.

With restaurants and cafes coming up with so many Ramadan dinners and Iftar set meals, it gives us plenty of options to dine and celebrate with our loved ones. But if you’re not sure where to go or what to eat, a number of five-star hotels have opened up their posh dining spaces to host some of the city’s tastiest buka puasa feasts, with dishes spanning Malay, Peranakan, Middle Eastern, Italian, and Japanese cuisines.

Style

It’s hard to talk about Ramadan and buka puasa feasts without thinking about the public holidays – a chance for us to go out and explore new places again. But it wouldn’t be much fun if we’re feeling uncomfortable in the process. Our solution? Walk around in these Axel Arigato Clean 90s sneakers in your travels. They will easily match your #ootd without hurting your feet after a long day of sightseeing.

Travel

The Wild Coast Tented Lodge sits on a deserted beach on the edge of Yala National Park in Sri Lanka.

The prospect of another long weekend has inspired our wanderlusting minds to go wild in planning our Raya trip before this month ends. And we love where it might take us. From luxury villas in Zambia to luxurious cocoon tents in Sri Lanka, checking in at these newly-opened safari lodges around the world will surely scratch your itch to travel.

Motors

Audi A4 1.4
A sleek business sedan with a slightly sporty vibe that surely packs a punch.

If you can’t leave the country for Raya, at least take your family or friends on a thrilling road trip with a fast and reliable car like the new Audi A4 1.4 TFSI with a 1.4-litre TFSI engine. Equipped with a 7-speed S tonic transmission, this baby can get where you want to go, pronto.
