Another week, another edition of best stories. This week may be a short one for those who work in Selangor. Meanwhile, it’s a normal five-day work week for the rest of us. Nevertheless, it’s already Friday and we can celebrate. Before you put on your party shoes, have a read of our favourite stories from this week, including a Christmas gift guide filled with beauty and fashion products.

Style & Beauty

We don’t want to say it but Christmas is pretty much around the corner, and typical last-minute shoppers (like us) tend to panic. What else is new? But not to worry — like the previous year, we’ve got you covered this year too. We’ve planned an ultimate Christmas gift guide filled with both fashion and beauty products, specifically for the different type of people in your life. There is one for the workaholics, jet-setters, night owls, fitness junkies, and also fashionistas in your life. Don’t waste any more time — click here for the guide.

Watches

Omega has always been the top of the list when it comes to classic and timeless Swiss watches. The brand indeed has many historical moments, including being the first watch to land on the moon alongside NASA. They’re also the official watch partner for the Olympics since 1932. We’ve compiled our favourites from Omega here.

Dining

What we love about a good buffet is when not only the food is good, but they also give you both a sense of nostalgia and an opportunity to try something new — with no limits. This Christmas, bring your loved ones to any of these Christmas buffets and feast on rustic Christmas dishes such as turkeys, pies, stews, and puddings. Just remember to put on your stretchy pants because these Christmas buffets will fill you up until 2019.

Culture

The Golden Globes nominations have just been released and other than Lady Gaga making headlines with her first ever nomination, there is one particular film that we did not expect to see in the list: Black Panther. Multiple cultural references were used in the film, and it also strayed them away from the typical superhero movie. Perhaps that’s why this particular one made it to the cut. Read our thoughts here.

#lifestyleasiakl’s Instagram of the Week

There are many facets to Syafiq Kyle’s character, like the Versace Dylan Blue, that made him who he is today. It’s also what he hopes to find in his ideal woman. Click here to watch the full video.
