Ed­i­tor ’s Note

CLEO (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS - Lina Esa @lean­beans

The year-end is al­ways filled with cheer and , but t hat usu­ally means jug­gling too much( Events! Dead­lines! Fam­ily things !). Rather than revving all the way up, we fig­ured that for the in­un­dated world we live in, we’d shift the gears to neu­tral. If you need space, take it. Choose from the 30 award-win­ning spa sand treat­ments that we per­son­ally rec­om­mend ( yep, # TeamCLEO stamps of ap­proval !) that’ ll suit any need, any bud­get, and any part of your body( page 46). While you’ re at it, sort that so­cial cal­en­dar within-out pool­side dress­ing that take you from desk to din­ner( page 58). Feed your soul with re­lax­ing reads by a young Malaysian author( page 92), then lose your­self in the tunes of Wolf Alice’ s new al­bum. We have an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with the band in the lead-up to Ur­ban sc apes 2018( page 91), of which CLEO is a me­dia part­ner. Our dig­i­tal space will bring you t he hottest up­dates, so keep hit­ting re­fresh!

No­vem­ber usu­ally her­alds CLEO’s travel is­sue, so we help feed that wan­der­lust. Tran­scend borders with t he sto­ries of BFFs who tra­verse the world to­gether ( page 72), t ravel pho­tog­ra­phers with works t hat soothe any # mood (page 74), the alt routes in Ger­many( page 94), and how a mod­ern- day no­mad and ci­ti­zen of t he world de­fines “home” ( page 104).

Monika Sta Maria, t he model- men­tor on Asia’s Next Top Model has also found her­self in the Big Ap­ple, and we get the ex­clu­sive on what made her take that leap of faith( page 78). Cover girl El le Fan­ning also went from grow­ing upon-screen and into her roles( page 68), which is metaphor­i­cal for us all. In a world where“home” is just a con­cept, grow into who you are and you’ll be right at home.

“Make your­self happy, and ‘home’ is there.” — Eve­lynn Yee on find­ing her place in the world, page 72
