Don’t hit that snooze button, because this week you’ll want to be up bright and early as you socialise and try new things. Think you could be really good at painting, or just want to enjoy creating art? Then Pisco Bar is where you need to be. Speaking of bars, there’s a French meet-up taking place at La Cave in Bangsar which is perfect for post-work mingling and practicing your French. Here’s a look at everything interesting and fun happening this week:
Adopt an earth-friendly way of living with the zero waste movement; quite literally the act of wasting little to absolutely nothing. The movement works in the order of refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle and then compost. Not sure where to start? You could join a talk given by Claire Sancelot, founder of The Hive as she shares her journey and tips. And how about this fact to kick it off: 90% of all marine debris floating in the world’s ocean are plastic!
Who’s game for a movie night? BacKLane Cinema – as its name suggests – brings movies to the streets and carparks of KL, ‘wayang pacak’ style. In conjunction with the month of Ramadan, the organisers will be providing a special ‘buka puasa’ feast. The four films to be shown include ‘The Apprentice’ by We Jun Cho and Mahen Bala, as well as ‘The Boy, His Bike & The Map’ by Gan Siong King.
Alliance Francaise Kuala Lumpur (AFKL) holds regular after-work meet-ups for the French community and all in the mood to mingle and practice their French. It’s very casual and inviting, and as any good story begins with wine, you’ll find an incredible selection at La Cave.
Seasoned practitioners and anyone keen on getting introduced to yoga should definitely make a date with APW’s popular weekly community yoga classes. Here you’ll meet yogis from all over the city (and new friends, for sure) as you find your flow in a relaxed yet energetic environment. Come dressed comfortably in exercise attire and do bring along your own yoga mat.
Try something completely new this weekend – unless you’re already an artist in which case, come simply to show off as you sip on drinks. Sip & Paint is where you can try out beginner-level painting over alcohol, so be careful not to spill. With no rules set, stick with the model proposed or flex your inner Picasso and go wild with creativity. RSVP required.
