This week’s best stories: A new Porsche 911, Pacific Standard Bar review, and more

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.

Style

Plaids, please.

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.

Dining

More than just a hotel bar: the new Pacific Standard Bar is the newest tippling place in town.

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.

Motors

The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS (991) boasts 690hp and 750 Nm, making it the most powerful 911 ever built.

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.
