It’s finally here – Christmas! For the religious it’s a joyous occasion; for the rest of us it’s a reason to be a part of the giving and merriment with our friends and loved ones.

But even if you’re not joining in on the festive Yuletide, this isn’t a weekend to pass uncelebrated -- we’re a week from the end of the year, so there are lists that need checking off as we prepare for 2017.

Here are our suggestions:



Let yourself be enveloped by the cheer of the season and celebrate the time of giving with your loved ones. You may be cutting it thin, but here are some options for a Christmas feast, and in case you ever wondered why the traditional foods became traditional – here are the origins stories for some of the staples.

EAT: Best of the best

We crunched the numbers and shortlisted the most-read of our weekly food compilations; these 5 were chosen by you, your fingers and your appetites. Relive them, and give yourself another reason to revisit these 25 eateries.

SHOP: Hansgrohe


The New Year should also bring in some new things – like a bathroom or kitchen remodel. If such things are on your cards, check out Hansgrohe and their top of the line ‘Select’ showers and mixers that will make you look forward to taking a shower and do the dishes.

SHOP: Omega watches


James Bond gets his explosive Omega timepieces from Q; you can now get yours (sans explosives) from KLCC. Omega’s newest boutique is stocked with some of its world-class watches, jewellery, leather goods and even new sunglasses.

Another idea: Have one last look at the happy couples who tied the knot this year.
