For many of us, the end-year holidays begin next Friday… which means we have one final weekend to fill to explore the city and experience its exciting events! Feel the Christmas spirit as you sip on tea at two very prestigious hotels, find some vintage keepsakes at APW, support a great cause with The Picha Project and finally, laugh out loud at Kevin Hart’s KL comedy show.
