Movie Review

Movie Review: Baby Driver
By Muhammad Nabil Rating: 9/10 Admittedly, I had my doubts when I heard Ansel Elgort was cast as the protagonist of the film. I mean, after a decent stint as Gus Waters in The Fault In Our Stars and an overall (really) whiny showcase as Caleb Prior in the Divergent series, I can safely say […]
Review: Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk
By Jeremy Say Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s latest World War II film is about the miraculous retreat of British forces from the Germans at Dunkirk. It was also incredibly lucky for us that MBO invited us to their new outlet in the Starling Mall with an early screening, all so that I can properly mull […]
REVIEW: War for the Planet of the Apes
As someone who had never seen the last two Planet of the Apes movies, I went into the cinema not knowing what to expect. Matt Reeves, at the helm of the ending installation to the trilogy had standards to uphold, but how would they play out? I needn’t have worried, because to be absolutely honest […]
REVIEW: Spider-Man: Homecoming
Spider-Man has come home. Marvel’s most popular superhero made his entry into the MCU proper in Captain America: Civil War in a show-stealing outing – in what was a good but overall underwhelming slice of superhero action that served more as a setup to a fresh status quo. Now, in his third big screen incarnation, […]
Transformers: The Last Knight, BEST MOVIE EVER!
By Jeremy Say As a true Michael Bae fanboy, it’s no surprise that he has made yet another excellent movie- Transformers: The Last Knight. Sadly (for all TRUE fans), this is supposed to be his last movie for the Transformers saga.. From classics like Bad Boys, The Rock and Armageddon, the only real blemish on […]
REVIEW: Wonder Woman
By Shazwan Zulkiffli After Batman Vs Superman, I have to admit, I was a bit nervous going into this movie. I mean, the Justice League trailer looks as messy as BvS and it definitely didn’t impress me one bit (except maybe the unexpected badassery of Aquaman). However, a small part of me figured that DC […]
REVIEW: Guardians of the Galaxy 2
By Shazwan Zulkiffli If there’s one thing we truly know about the only distant crew of misfits in the MCU so far, is that they know how throw a party in space. Peter Quill and his crew of uptight but hilarious anti-heroes once again wreak havoc around the galaxy with another sick playlist comprising of […]
MOVIE REVIEW: Beauty and the Beast
By Jeremy Say Malaysia has made itself known many times to the international audience and generally, our image has not been very favorable lately. Beauty and the Beast just so happens to be yet another smudge on Malaysia’s image, all due to some ridiculous censorship issue with an alleged 3 second scene thought by some […]

Game Review

GAME REVIEW: Ghost Recon: Wildlands
By Muhammad Nabil I was too busy reliving my dream of being a cartel hunter with a couple of my friends shooting down sicarios and being a ragtag team of supposedly badass veteran soldiers to really be fazed by the game’s annoying glitches and shortcomings. But that’s what Ghost Recon: Wildlands does best; it ups […]
REVIEW – Ben 10: Up to Speed
By Jeremy Say Thanks to the good people over at Cartoon Network, I was able to get my hands on Ben 10: Up to Speed, a mobile game available on the App Store and Google Play. As a fan of the original Ben 10 universe, I was not fully enamored by the current reboot, but […]
REVIEW: MSI GT83VR 6RF TITAN SLI
By Jeremy Say MSI has graciously let us borrow the MSI GT83VR TITAN SLI – a ~21K Malaysian Ringgit gaming laptop that came out late-mid last year, boasting variations in the 6RF (GTX 1080 graphics) and 6RE (GTX 1070 graphics) model. There is also a more expensive 7RF and 7RE model with the main difference […]
REVIEW: FOR HONOR Beta
By Aubrey Yong Released on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2017, the red blood pouring from my fallen enemy seems to laugh gently at the idea of romance. Testing out the beta of the latest Ubisoft IP, For Honor, it’s been a traumatic yet destructively fun experience rampaging out the stress that you think you don’t […]

Food Review

REVIEW: La Fiesta at Genting SkyAvenue
By Scott Ng Photos By Aubrey Yong It’s been years since I last made the trek up to Genting Highlands. Being something of a cold-blooded reptile, the frigid peaks have never been that comfortable a place for my sinuses, but when the email invite arrived in my inbox to try out two of the new […]
The 10 Best Sahur Options in Klang Valley
By Marissa Dinar & Adani Bakhtiar It’s that time of the year again! Where people wake up in the wee hours of the morning to eat and fill their bellies for the upcoming day since we aren’t able to consume gallons of food like we do on the regular – in order to evoke empathy […]
REVIEW: V E Hotel & Residence Ramadhan Buffet
By Muhammad Nabil “My body is ready,” I said as I got into my boss’s car to get ready to go to a food tasting event at V E Hotel and Residence in Bangsar South. My boss scoffed at me. Whatever. V E Hotel was previewing their Straits and Arabian Buffet for their Ramadhan event […]
CMCR @ TTDI
By Jeremy Say Coffee, possibly at its finest, can be found easily in TTDI. Just head over to Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) with its newly opened branch in Kuala Lumpur. Already well established in Singapore since 2013, they provide not only excellent service, but a fair selection of brunch menu items with amazing coffee. […]
Nomi Tomo – A Proper Japanese Sake Bar
By Jeremy Say Nomi Tomo is your proper Japanese Sake bar first established in 2015 at Plaza Damansara by brothers Kelvin and Kai Zhou. This wonderful place is filled with excellent imported sake and skewers and is an amazing place for casual drinking night with friends. Aptly named “Drinking Buddies”, Nomi Tomo is a sake […]
REVIEW: Tiki Taka @ Medan Damansara
By Jeremy Say If you ever wanted an excuse to eat more than just one dish on the menu, then, welcome to the world of tapas by Tiki Taka. Nestled in Medan Damansara, the restaurant sits at the corner with a beautiful alfresco section opened to the cool night breeze. Boasting a very clean natural wooden […]
La Belle Saison – A Hidden Gem in Kota Kemuning
By Jeremy Say After years of living in Malaysia, I finally found an amazing French restaurant reminiscent of my hometown, Montréal. Finding good simple French cuisine in Malaysia was never easy for me and it’s a godsend to find La Belle Saison in Kota Kemuning. There will be a food review below, but first some […]

Event Review

Kroenenbourg brings Le Moment to Publika
Ah, France. To a Malaysian, this conjures up images of the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, romance, and baguettes, but there’s so much more to France than just that – and we’re talking about Kroenenbourg, the fruity wheat beer that transformed The Square in Publika into a genuinely French experience, with sections of the outdoor area […]
Red Bull’s Elixir of Life @ The Pawn Room, TTDI
By Matt Liew Last weekend, our friends at Red Bull International were kind enough to invite us over to The Pawn Room, a cozy speakeasy in TTDI with a very distinct Oriental theme to its decor & layout. We were invited to try their latest creation in a line of Red Bull-infused drinks & cocktails, […]
Urbanscapes 2017 wraps up at The Row with Tiger Beer
By Muhammad Nabil Urbanscapes transformed The Row into their own playground last Sunday on the 21st of May. Following in line with this year’s theme, ‘Rediscover KL,’ the venue hosted numerous activities for visitors to indulge themselves in the art, culture, and talents of Kuala Lumpur. At Timbre, the public were welcomed with an immersive […]
Mew wow the Malaysian crowd for the 2nd time
By A.Akbar Urbanscapes threw in another treat this year by bringing back Malaysia’s favorite Danish prog-rock outfit back to Kuala Lumpur. The usually-congested city streets were surprisingly empty but KL Live, situated by Jalan Sultan Ismail, was full of alternative rock fans well in their late 20s or early 30s, eager to relive their younger […]
14th BOH Cameronian Arts Awards
By Muhammad Nabil It has only the halfway point of 2017, but plenty of changes have happened across the music and arts scene here in Malaysia, and in the center of it all, a massive revamp in the creation of the 14th BOH Cameronian Arts Awards. This year’s iteration of the awards ceremony was held […]
Urbanscapes 2017: Stars And Rabbit
By Muhammad Nabil Underestimation. That was the lingering thought that kept twisting away at the back of my head while Elda and Adi were performing arguably one of the most surreal sets I have experienced in my life. It amazed me, to see a pair of musicians’ intentions to be so pure and genuine. It […]
Thunderstorm: A play by KLPAC
By Muhammad Nabil Truth be told, I was never much of a performing arts buff, having only attended a grand total of 4 plays in my 22 years of existence. Some reasons could be that I wasn’t brought up in that milieu, nor was I particularly interested in acting, even as I was forced by […]
Sights And Sounds: The Blancpain GT Series Asia
By Muhammad Nabil Last weekend, I had to cover for my colleague who had to forego going to Sepang to cover the first round of the Blancpain GT Series Asia for a gig down south in Johor Bahru. I’m a serious worker, so when word came to me that I had to go instead, I […]
