Is it just me or January 2019 felt like yesterday? And just within a blink of an eye, the month of May is already here!
This year has been an exciting one so far in terms of the entertainment scene in KL. First, we had BLACKPINK take over the Melawati Indoor Stadium in Shah Alam on 23 February (although some people thought the K-pop girl group was a bad influence on Malaysians). Then, local fans were definitely ecstatic when they found out that Westlife will be performing not one, but two concerts in Malaysia this August, so much so that the tickets for both days were sold out within just 36 hours. Wah, so fast!
If you think the list of awesome events for 2k19 in KL stops there, think again, because this month alone, it looks like there are many other events that will be rocking up in the city. So whether you’re into music, vintage markets, clearance sales or networking events, May 2019 looks pretty chock-full of events and you’ll be able to keep yourself busy every weekend.
1st May: Nala’s Pasar Gaya
Ramadan is just a few days away and if you don’t have an outfit yet for Raya, this is where you’ll find unique, non-mass-produced designs to wow your guests. Yes, it’s the same brand that’s famous for those vibrant graphic patterns on bags, pillowcases and more.
Time: 11am – 9pm
Venue: Nala’s Kampung House, 18, Jalan Abdullah, Bangsar

The ‘I’m Yours’ singer clearly loves us because he said he enjoys “performing for listeners in Asia”. Oh, how ‘Lucky’ we are! 😛
