Thank goodness it’s Friday because it means the end of the working week is here and we have come to yet another edition of this week’s best stories. This week, we celebrate both old and new, because one cannot exist without the other.
People love new things, which is why we’re constantly updating you with new places in KL to wine and dine at. As it’s the beginning of the month, we bring you a fresh new list of places to visit. Porsche also welcomes a new 911 GT R2 (991) supercar after six years — rejoice. But because old is gold, we also celebrate the classic and iconic. We’re talking about heritage timepieces for women, and also the plaid print in fashion. Read all about them in this week’s best stories.
Fashion is fleeting, but style is forever, so they say. One way to avoid being in the trending fashion trap is to stick with classic pieces that will always be in style. One of them is plaids. They make an appearance in almost every season’s runways — even the Burberry check is an iconic print. If you’ve always been afraid to try plaid out or didn’t know how to wear it, follow our guide right here.
A new month means new places to dine at. We rounded up eight new restaurants and cafes encompassing Thai, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and more. You’ll definitely be settled for every weekend of the month. In fact, start it off with coffee at Alta Cafe.
Pacific Standard Bar in the new Alila Bangsar hotel has just opened, and we were there to check it out. Inspired by California in the 50s, the bar is bright, sunny, and features some seriously fun drinks. Read all about it in our review.
Is Venice the only place that comes to mind when you think of a city on water? Think again, because the world is home to many other floating cities — St. Petersburg in Russia included. We introduce four other floating cities around the world for you to visit, each of them beautiful in their own way.
What do the Bulgari Serpenti, Cartier Tank, and the Rolex Day-Date watches have in common? They’ve all graced the wrists of the most influential women in the world, including Jacqueline Kennedy and Elizabeth Taylor. Read more about these iconic timepieces and their legacy.
The Porsche 911 series was one of the original supercars. But thanks to a rising trend in sedans and SUVs, they seemed to have taken a back seat in innovation and production. Not anymore, because we’re seeing a return of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS 991-generation after six years. Read all about its heritage here.
