We hope you had a good and restful long weekend, because this week’s agenda is shaking things up. Quite literally shaken (and not stirred), is Aviary Bar’s International Rum Day celebration that in excellent spirit, lasts all month long. Everything in moderation, as they say, so don’t forget to keep your health in check and feel great at a macrobiotics workshop that’s perfect for beginners. L’Occitane’s Provencal Beauty Market is sending aromatic notes through Mid Valley Megamall’s Centre Court so you know where to get your beauty needs sorted. And finally, we’ve got some good news for budding entrepreneurs – you might just meet your ideal co-founder this week!

1. International Rum Day

A round of rum is in order with the celebration of International Rum Day on 16 August (or every day, and we're not judging). Hilton Kuala Lumpur's own Aviary Bar is highlighting their signature rum-based cocktail, The Jungle Bird, created as a welcome drink for the hotel in 1973. While you're at it, ask for the Jungle Bird Series; a five-type variety including the Original Jungle Bird, Jackfruit Jungle Bird, American Jungle Bird, Morning Bird, and Mexican Jungle Bird.
