Editor’s Note


Can you believe it? It’s finally December!

This month as the festive season kicks in, several hotels have come up with special tasty treats and mouth-watering traditional dishes to celebrate the season of giving. Speaking of giving, IKEA Malaysia takes sustainability seriously and has come up with a line of live Christmas trees that you could purchase, and if you take the initiative to return it post-Christmas or New Year, you could see yourself walking away with an RM50 voucher plus feeling good that your live tree would be recycled and repurposed (https://theiskandarian.com/tis-the-season-to-be-jolly-with-ikea-live-christmas-trees/)!

Our movie partners are extremely generous this month with loads of not-to-be-missed movies. From fending off ghosts to swinging from building to building and breaking into song and dance, as well as sneaking off to get some carrots, veges and even sweets – I think you can pretty much guess the four movies – yes you read right – FOUR movies that will be airing in the cinemas near you. If you can’t figure out what movies I’m talking about, check out our Movies tab under Waves for more details.

For those thirsty for Music updates, our Music tab (https://waves-lifestyle.com/musics/) has lots of latest updates! We also carry Fashion news and Book reviews in its respective tabs, so, do check them out.

DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Bahru has come up with various options for this Christmas and New Year. Click on our Food tab to learn more about it and start making your reservations soon.

As a sigh of relief, most hotels have started to open their doors for staycations and dining-in for vaccinated Malaysians. Do keep abreast of the latest updates and announcements from the government before making any hotel bookings or ensure that the place you’ve booked at has COVID-19 cancellation or postponement policies. Do browse our Travel column for travel escapades that you can embark on.

As always, for those wishing to share their fashion collection, travel tales, or like us to review your restaurant/hotel for a staycation, drop me an e-mail at waves.lifestyle@gmail.com and be featured. For more news, do access www.theiskandarian.com and https://waves-lifestyle.com

We at The Iskandarian would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and New Year’s Eve. See you in 2022! #staysafe
