We love the weekends! It’s the only two days in the week when we give a rest to our laptops and phones and try to establish a connection with the other world. (Just kidding, we are always online.)

But for the rest of you, here are some juicy ideas to spice up your weekend.

The festival will take place in Kuching, Sarawak from July 7 to 16 and promises the best in music, arts, crafts, fashion, food and photography from local and international artists.

If you are up for a night of adventurous experimenting, gather up your clan and head to Skullduggery, Damansara. This hidden bar is known for serving up some creatively crazy concoctions such as You Say Potato, Jack O’ Mai and Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; that will surely add the ‘spirit’ in your regular Saturday affair.

Pooches in the Park

In an effort to raise money for a new handicapped dogs facility, KL Pooch Resort and Rescue is organising an outdoor carnival for your furry friends this Sunday at Bandar Utama from 10am-7pm complete with a wet and wild corner and talks on pet nutrition.

To celebrate the French National Day (Bastille Day), the Pastry Institute of St. Honore is conducting a special wine and pastry pairing course on July 14 from 7pm -11pm. Participants will be guided by field experts who will take them through several French delicacies such as fruit tartlets, blue cheese spreads, goat’s quiche and more with a wine that works best for each meal.

Here's saying cheers to a good weekend!

A musical fiesta is on its way to KL and you simply cannot miss it! Mark your calendars with KL's upcoming music events.
