Hello, KL

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Contents - John Lim Editor-in-Chief @johneuhock

If you’re read­ing this from your couch (and flick­ing through Net­flix) or while hav­ing your favourite meal at the same restau­rant for the umpteenth time, we’ve got the per­fect is­sue for you. Too of­ten, we find our­selves do­ing the same old com­fort­able rou­tine on the week­ends. My Satur­day af­ter­noons typ­i­cally start off with cof­fee, a cook­book and fan­tasies about cook­ing – which is nice, but ev­ery once in a while we need to go be­yond our com­fort zones. Why? Be­cause those are the mo­ments when you dis­cover amaz­ing places to visit, eat and drink, just as the TOKL team did while trav­el­ling be­yond the city lim­its to ar­eas like Bant­ing, Tan­jung Malim and Seremban in our food trip fea­ture (p14).

We also talked to peo­ple in the Val­ley who’ve dared to change their ca­reers in the hope of find­ing work that brings them joy and mean­ing to oth­ers (p22). In the process, it gave us some­thing to think about while stuck in traf­fic, hop­ing we won’t be late for an­other ap­point­ment. Be­yond our fea­ture sto­ries, we also checked out ac­tiv­i­ties around KL that get your adrenaline lev­els pumped up (p39), ex­am­ined bizarre in­gre­di­ents in beauty prod­ucts (p32), and dis­cov­ered what goes on be­hind the scenes at the Good Vibes fes­ti­val (p51).

Now get off that couch and go ex­plor­ing.
