And now for your weekly dose of places to see, people to meet and of course, food to eat. First, enjoy a dining experience at Elements with a tiny chef you might have seen in a viral YouTube video — and Malaysia so happens to be the first country to host him! Or, dig a little deeper and delve into the history of Malaysia at a workshop which ironically, focuses on the future of research. Don’t forget to buckle up and take a drive down to Sepang for the Asia GT Festival, where you never know which familiar face you’ll bump into.

Celebs over cars? No problem. The Asia GT Festival also features a series of pop-up stores as well as a marketplace by local celebrities, including Joe Flizzow, Linora Low and KTown Clan. Joe Flizzow and members of the 16 Baris Band will be holding a mini concert on the final night of the festival, so stick around!

This is an innovative dining experience that tells the story of the ‘world’s smallest chef’, making his appearance as an animated 3D projection onto diners’ plates. The animated chef then ‘cooks’ the food right then and there, which in reality is done by Michelin-starred chef, Jeff Ramsey. Originally from Belgium, Malaysia is the first country in Southeast Asia to host Le Petit.
