Social butterfly on the loose? That’s you. This week you’ll want to get into the groove of things as UK pop act AlunaGeorge puts on a show at KYO, while Malaysian award-winning singer Ning Baizura does the same, albeit in our national zoo in support of tigers. In the mood to shop? We hear you, and hopefully even bump into you at KLPAC and Pavilion KL where two events are somewhat polar opposites: an indulgent investment for timepieces, and a vintage yard sale in tune with zero waste living.
What doesn’t spark joy for one person might for another, and that’s just how you can practice the zero waste movement this weekend. Kabut in the Park is a non-profit platform created to promote sustainable living, and in spreading the message is throwing a car boot yard sale at the carpark of KLPAC. Registration for vendors are now closed but everyone is more than welcome to come mingle, shop and give new life to preloved items.
Malaysian queen of soul Ning Baizura is putting on a show at Zoo Negara in aid of the Malaysian Conservation Alliance for Tigers (MYCAT). The alliance, which comprises of Malaysian Nature Society, Traffic Southeast Asia, Wildlife Conservation Society-Malaysia Programme and WWF Malaysia, works closely with tribes and government organisations in protecting and conserving the tiger population. The concert will also feature an autograph and photography session with Ning at the Elephant and Tiger sections after her performance.
The UK electric pop duo made up of Aluna Francis and producer George Reid are taking to KYO to perform their hit songs like “You Know You Like It” and “Superior Emotion”. AlunaGeorge has garnered worldwide success having worked with Avicii, Jack Ü (Diplo and Skrillex), DJ Snake, Kaytranada, Flume, Bryson Tiller, Disclosure, Peking Duk, and Baauer. But first, catch up with the duo’s latest project, Champagne Eyes, which debuted in October 2018.
If all you want to do this weekend is shop, treat yourself. You could walk away with one of three Bell & Ross BR S Steel watches worth MYR7,800 each! The mall is holding a month of special events including displays and promotions at selected stores. Taking place now till the 21st of April is the Montblanc 1858 exhibition for its latest collection, plus we hear Lawrence Wong of the Chinese period drama ‘The Story of Yanxi Palace’ will make an appearance on the 17th.
