Editor’s Note


Greetings my fellow Iskandarians,

In a blink of an eye, February is already here and we celebrate the Chinese New Year in merriment in the company of good food + family & friends. Despite the high vaccination rate, don’t let your guard down and always follow the SOPs when you are gathered among your loved ones to keep everyone safe.

Tom Holland plays a new role in Unchartered, and a thriller film based on Agatha Christie’s novel is in store for us this month from our Movie partners Sony Pictures Malaysia and The Walt Disney Company Malaysia. Closer to the movie release dates, we would update it under the Movies tab, so keep a lookout for it and get the tickets and popcorn ready! (**We would try our best to keep you updated if there are any postponements due to the ongoing pandemic.)  

For Music updates, do check out its tab for any latest singles or albums released by your favourite superstars!

Under our Food tab, we have shared some recipes from Ayam Brand Malaysia and various festive offerings for the Year of the Tiger from the local hotels. Browse through for the best and most scrumptious deal suited for you and your family. 

As most hotels have opened their doors for staycations and dining-in for vaccinated visitors, do keep abreast of any latest updates and announcements from the government before making any hotel bookings. Ensure the place you’ve booked at has COVID-19 cancellation or postponement policies and check out 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.

We at The Iskandarian would like to wish everyone a very Happy Chinese New Year!
