It was a good four-day weekend last week, but now we’re looking forward to yet another long weekend with the Malaysia Day public holiday on Monday. Perhaps book yourself an afternoon tea session — or if petit treats are not your cup of tea, these new bars in KL may be just the thing.

In other news, New York Fashion Week has just ended and we have stories to tell. But out of the many trends we’ve spotted, quirky bag designs are the ones that stuck with us throughout the whole week. Continue on reading for more of our best stories of the week.

Beauty

As much as we love waiting for new beauty releases, finding out the name of these new products are equally as fun. We’ve heard of some catchy ones like Too Faced’s Glow Job and It Cosmetics’ Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream, but it’s the NSFW ones that take the cake. We’re talking about names that may make you blush, like Nars’ new mascara Climax and Orgasm blush. Here’s our list to make your day.

New York Fashion Week SS19

New York Fashion Week is indeed in full swing, with models, celebrities and designers flocking down the streets in the most intricate fashion clothing. This season, SS19 seems to be all about bags and it’s not just your regular tote bag or backpacks — we’re talking about quirkiest bag designs that are not like your average carriers. Some of these bags even left us questioning its actual functionality — like Brandon Maxwell’s microscopic bag that can barely fit a lipstick. But are there anything you’d not do for fashion?

Tech

It’s that time of the year again — when everyone across the globe tunes in on this particular brand to see what’s the latest in tech land. Apple just announced the release of the Apple Watch Series 4 and three new iPhones, XR, XS and XS Max. The ones that caught our attention are the XS and XS Max, upgraded versions of the currently available (but soon no longer) iPhone X. This year, Apple seems to be concentrating on the whole X, unlike previous releases. Here’s where you can get all the details.

Travel

boutique hotels in Malacca

Just slightly more than an hour drive away from Kuala Lumpur is Malacca — an upbeat city that is filled with heritage, culture and food — lots of it. Many tend to take a short trip down south just to have their fill of authentic Peranakan food but there is more than just famous Jonker Street to venture. By the time you know it, you’ll be having two full days of exploring and eating, and needed a place to rest for the night — one of these boutique hotels may be the place for you.
