Michael Kors Party, Lyf Royal Chulan Launch, Michelle Yeoh Movie Premiere & More: Events We Hit Up This Past Week!


There’s a new sneaker on the block – and it’s called the ASTROLOUBI! The new footwear line from Christian Louboutin draws inspiration from 90’s street style and the aesthetic of the era’s iconic basketball and skate sneakers. We were at the brand’s Pavilion Kuala Lumpur boutique to get a closer look at the stunning kicks, which are available in five colourways.

All the designs include bright colours, an exciting mix of materials and textures and, of course, the iconic red soles. At the event, guests tested their basketball skills with the Louboutin basketball arcade machine, and experienced other activities. We discovered that we got game too!

We hit up a private party to celebrate the launch of Michael Kors’ new Empire logo! Inspired by Michael’s travels to Paris, the diamond lattice monogram MK logo is an ode to the iconic Louvre.

The new logo will debut as part of the brand’s Fall 2023 collection, which includes other beautiful pieces, to create the perfect fall wardrobe. While at the event, we also tried out some yummy treats and beverages; and partied with celebs as the in-house DJ spun his records.

GoPro Hero12 Black Launch

GoPro invited us to a massive event where they launched the GoPro Hero12 Black in the Malaysian market. We were given a rundown of all we needed to know about the new camera – from its incredibly versatile features to its price. 

Not only were we treated to an amazing presentation, but we were also given a chance to take the new device for a spin. We took photos and videos of the venue, Terra PJ, letting us fully understand what the pocketable beast could do. With its new focus on fun, it’s safe to say that we had a blast as we mingled with casual videographers and dedicated GoPro family members alike.

Magnum Matcha Crumble Launch

Magnum hosted an extravagant takeover event at Sentul Depot, which was transformed into a Magnum Matcha world. The event was attended by an array of distinguished guests, including Daiyan Trisha, Ben Amir and Qiu Wen. The celebs’ presence added an extra layer of glamour and excitement, reaffirming Magnum‘s status as the epitome of true pleasure.

We were super glad to be part of the scrumptious bash, as we got to experience the new flavours for ourselves! The “blend of East and West” concept captures the essence of Japanese culture, which is expertly paired with Magnum’s signature, thick cracking Belgian chocolate, delivering an indulgence that stays True to Pleasure. The Magnum Matcha Crumble has velvety smooth Matcha ice cream, encased in the iconic Magnum thick cracking Belgian chocolate, with crunchy shortbread crumble pieces. The remarkable combination offers a symphony of textures and flavours that truly elevate the ice cream experience.

We also gained insights into Japanese culture by trying our hand at the Japanese tea ceremony, crafting Japanese fans, and penning down wishes on a “wishing tree”.
