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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

Buka puasa at Genting Highlands with a buffet of kambing golek and more
By Norain F. Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection where Muslims are required to fast as a way to celebrate and commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief. Not only is Ramadan celebrated from a religious standpoint, it is also the month where cultures collide, especially when it comes […]
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 […]
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. […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
