Concert: Yuna at Slim’s, SF

I’ve never had the chance to see Yuna live. Ever. So it was meant to be when my roommate asked me if I liked Yuna and wanted to see her. Yes, yes, yes, was my answer. Although the show was only for an hour, I did think that her set was amazing. Her dance moves, outfit, and voice were out of this world. Highlight of the night was her covering Hotline Bling. *heart eyes emoji* – Adrienne Yap

Song: 童話 (Tong Hua) – 光良

This was THE Chinese theme song of 2005. You would hear people playing it everywhere, in KLCC, McD, even mamaks. Kids were singing and dancing to it. I’m not afraid to admit that my squad had a dance sequence dedicated to this song. Even my friends who didn’t speak a sentence of Chinese knew the lyrics to this. It’s an oldie, but a goodie. *karaoke time* – Alicia Leow


Place: Mamak

For the past week and a half, I’ve been traveling around Europe and UK for the holidays. Other than the sky getting dark by 4 pm and seeing a full moon by 5 pm, I’m also not used to not having cheap mamak food around at any hour. 24 hour or late night mamaks are truly a blessing. There aren’t a lot of places in the world that I know of where you can order a teh o ais, roti telur bawang, maggi goreng ayam, and garlic cheese naan at 3 am and spend less than RM20. There’s a pretty large amount of Asian restaurants around in London, Berlin and Vienna, but as usual, they cost a whole leg as compared to what I can have at home for much less. It’s like going against my life principles and a near-empty wallet to pay too much for Asian food in pounds or euros. For those studying abroad and deprived of Malaysian food, hang in there and stay strong.  – Amanda Chan

Talent: Sharina Shahrin

My best friend once told me to never stop creating no matter what it is. As long as I’m creating, I’m good. I love looking at Sharina’s artwork because they’re all so effortless. I love to see individuals grow and every single time I see her artwork, I never want to stop creating. Can’t get enough? Lucky you, it’s all on Instagram. – Tasha Iman

Moment: Peak hour

Have you ever heard about the Federal jam at its peak on a rainy weekday evening? Have you ever been inside the Federal jam at its peak on a rainy weekday evening? Have you ever seen the Federal jam at its peak on a rainy weekday evening from all of the above? I don’t know about you, but it’s my little sprinkle of joy to see Federal’s sea of car lights on my commute as I walk to the train station. Watching it over the LRT ride between Universiti and Kerinchi is a sight to behold. Slow down your pace, look over the bridge of Jalan Pantai Bharu, take a breather and pair it with SG Lewis’s No Less. It will definitely put your worries a little at ease. – Ratri Arifin


Feelings: Pity

The easiest party to host is a pity party. You overwhelm yourself with negative thoughts for an uncertain amount of time as it eats at your optimism, draining you from feeling motivated. But just like how we decide not to attend certain social settings because it makes us feel uncomfortable, pity parties should be no exception. Surround yourself with things you love and remember the better things about yourself. We’re all entitled to a shitty day or two, but you’ve to pick yourself up on the third day and get back to working on being the best version of yourself. Never succumb to your insecurities. – Rathika Sheila
