The first week of December is done and dusted, which means we’re less than three weeks away until Christmas.

On this week’s edition of best stories, we have something from our travel section that may help you in your year-end trip planning, or if you want to dine someplace new this weekend, we have a whole list of new restaurants here and also reviews on the new Atas Modern Malaysian Eatery at The Ruma as well as Yu by Ruyi down below.

Read on for more best stories of the week.

Travel

Glamping was all the rage. It’s always the first choice when it comes to wanting ‘to be close to nature’, but bubble hotels are now in and might even be a better alternative. It is exactly like what it sounds, guests sleep in a transparent dome that gives you an unobstructed view of your surroundings. Here are six for you to explore across the globe.

Style

Dark, romantic, historical and theatrical — these are the words best describe the Gucci Cruise 2019 collection. The Italian fashion house flew 400 guests to the ancient site of Alyscamps in the South of France just for the show and that definitely earned a spot in our books. View the collection here, including a couple of our favourites.

Dining

Think you know all of the dim sum names? Think again. Yu by Ruyi will change your perception of this traditional Chinese cuisine and perhaps make your Instagram feed look even better than before. Authentic flavours are maintained if not improvised, but what’s unique about the dishes in Yu by Ruyi is that everything looks absolutely adorable and good in camera. Read our review here.

Gear

Much like KLIMS, The LA Auto Show is one that we look forward to when it comes to the latest and fanciest cars. An annual event since 1907, the show usually runs for 10 days in Los Angeles, California. This year’s theme is on electric motors, with plenty of cars showcasing its prowess in the field of electrical engineering. Check out our top picks here.
