The Cheat Sheet: Mhera-1 Thai Fine Cuisine, new bars in KL, and Spring 2018 trends

With the sporadic downpour of heavy rains we’ve been experiencing throughout the week, we’re hoping the upcoming Saturday and Sunday won’t be as wet, cold, and gloomy. There’s just so many exciting things to do. This week’s Cheat Sheet includes dropping by galleries to see new art exhibitions lined up in KL this month, and shopping for some neutral eye shadow palettes and all-in-one cleansers for men.

If the rain doesn’t let up, then we might as well just stay at home, do some online shopping (for light sweaters to combat the weather) and perhaps follow some jewellery designers on Instagram (against boredom). But we’re quite positive the sun will take a peek to give us a couple of hours to tick off more items in our Cheat Sheet. And that’s enough to enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Eat

Mhera-1 Thai Fine Cuisine
A taste of Mhera-1’s dishes would be enough to make you realise the things you’ve been missing out on Thai fine cuisine.

If (like us) you’re in the mood for fine dining, take your date to Mandarin Grill in Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, who just introduced Sebastian Barcudes as its new chef de cuisine. Hailing from Argentina, he created a new menu with showcasing his Argentinian roots but fused with local flavours. Another great option is to try unique Thai dishes that are fit for royalty at Mhera-1 Thai Fine Cuisine in Kota Damansara.

Drink

The Cheat Sheet
We’re happy to see how the city’s cocktail industry grows to be more and more diverse with the opening of new specialist bars.

There’s a handful of new bars that recently opened in KL. And this weekend’s the best time for you to try at least one of them. This includes a rum bar and another one that carries out a plant-based approach on mixology.

Style

We sum up the 5 key trends that we expect to make ubiquitous appearances soon.

Paris Fashion Week has ended, but we’re still hung over with all the street style that we saw in the sidelines of the runway shows. As we’re looking to steal these fashion influencer’s styles, we might as well get our own pair of chunky sneakers that we saw on runway models, too. For sure, they’ll be one of the major Spring 2018 trends that we’ll be seeing more everywhere soon.

Travel

lesser-known Thai islands, cheat sheet
Some of these lesser-known Thai islands are in fact, closer to Malaysia than we think.

Escape the gloominess of the city altogether, and start packing your overnight designer bags. We reckon there’s still enough time to go an quick getaway trip to discover one of the 5 lesser-known islands in Thailand.

#lifestyleasiakl’s Instagram of the Week

The Cheat Sheet
Behold the modern look on @givenchyofficial ‘s classic Givenchy Gentleman scent.

We can’t wait to get our hands on a bottle of Gentleman Givenchy. More than its graphic design, it holds a woody fragrance that leaves lingering scents of patchouli, leather accord, and black vanilla notes.
