Now that the royal wedding is done and dusted, do you feel as though your life has lost that little glimmer? Fret not, because we have this week’s edition of the best stories to brighten up your day — quite literally, in fact. We’ll be covering some of the best home lightings 2018 has to offer after you’ve furnished your home with enough Harry chairs from Ikea.

Don’t drown your post-royal wedding blues in sorrow — instead, head up to Genting to try the world’s most expensive Miyazaki beef, because you’re worth it. Then, book a holiday to Japan and explore some of its lesser-known cities. If all else fails, we’re sure watching a comedy show by funnyman Kavin Jay on the new Malaysia will help you move on with life.

Without further ado, these are this week’s best stories.
