Do this

If you only do one thing this month, make it the Cooler Lumpur Fes­ti­val (cool­er­lumpur.com) at Pub­lika (Aug 17-20). Themed ‘Notes from the Fu­ture’ for its fifth in­stall­ment, this mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary fes­ti­val of ideas looks to the so­cial, political, tech­no­log­i­cal and cul­tural ideas that have be­come rep­re­sen­ta­tive of these times and tell the story of our col­lec­tive fu­tures.

Drink this

MAZE (fb.com/MazeMalaysia) has re­ceived a new ship­ment of gins, some of which are rarely found in KL’s bars. Among them in­clude Able­forth’s Bath­tub gin, which won gold at this year’s World Gin Awards, and Ki No Bi, a Ja­panese gin known for its use of un­usual botan­i­cals like yuzu, gyokuro tea and san­sho ber­ries. Have them on their own, or with the fresh fruits avail­able via the bar’s gin sum cart.

Catch this

The last time Datuk Sheila Ma­jid (tick­etcharge. com.my) graced the stage of Stadium Ne­gara was back in 1991. Fast for­ward 16 years and she takes the same stage once again on Au­gust 5. Malaysia’s queen of jazz makes her grand re­turn with a brand new al­bum in tow, ti­tled ‘Boneka’ – her first stu­dio al­bum in 13 years. Ex­pect her to per­form her lat­est tracks as well as favourites ‘Si­naran’, ‘Warna’, ‘La­genda’ and many more.
