If it feels like we’re sprinting towards the end of the year, you’re not entirely wrong. The end of September beckons, and when we start a fresh week on Monday, it will already be October. Meanwhile, take it slow and read this week’s edition of our best stories.

This time, we cover the momentous La Maison Cointreau 2018 Malaysia finals, find out more about Audi’s first green vehicle, and more.

Dining

Have you always thought of bar grub as just peanuts or the occasional kacang putih that we Malaysians adore so much? Well then, Knowhere in Bangsar will challenge everything you knew about bar grub. We recently reviewed their food menu, so read it to find out which item you need to order the next time you head to Knowhere.

Drink

The La Maison Cointreau 2018 Malaysia finals was held recently at the Pacific Standard Bar. Seven finalists battled with their original cocktail recipes, but ultimately there could only be one winner to represent Malaysia in the regional championship. The winner was Justin Tay from Cabinet 8 by JWC, a cocktail bar in Johor Bahru. Read all about his winning creation here.

Style

With fashion week almost done and dusted, we take a look back at last week’s Milan Fashion Week and sussed out the best street styles there were. Expect to see plenty of neons, monochrome, and print-on-print. Get your next outfit inspiration right here.

Travel

Think of San Francisco and the image of the Golden Gate Bridge will immediately come to mind. What else is there to do in good ol’ San Fran, with their many slopes? Read our guide and you’ll get a good idea on places to dine, stay, and visit. Oh, and be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

Motors

With more cars joining the eco-friendly bandwagon, we’re almost surprised that Audi didn’t join in sooner. But better late than never, because they’re finally debuting the Audi e-tron Quattro. We break down the SUV and let you know the nitty-gritty details of the Audi e-tron Quattro.
