Editor’s Note


Despite keeping up the enthusiasm for the New Year, it looks like we Malaysians had to face lots of challenges no thanks to “Mr.C”, and ourselves to be blamed as well for being complacent. But will February spell as a better month for us, especially with talks of vaccine being rolled out albeit in stages? Only time will tell.

On the local front, JOOX, Asia’s music platform launched hip hop beats to ride the hip-hop wave in Malaysia by featuring hip-hop/R&B duo – GARD WUZGUT’s exclusive album titled “Lebuhraya Slatan”. Meanwhile, K-pop gal group BLACKPINK collaborated with Pepsi as its latest brand ambassador.

Sorry that I don’t have any good news on the Movie front yet, but instead I do like to share about a heart-warming book written by a Malaysian writer, Juliana N. Chang.  Catch up on some reading if you’ve not started on any.

As Chinese New Year is around the corner, we’d like to share some delicious traditional food from Impiana Hotel Senai. With unpredictable COVID/MCO situation in the state, Impiana offers all these goodies via delivery as well for those who prefer to dine in safely at home. Flip over the pages to know more.

Although travel plans may have halted for a bit, but if you liked what you read about the things you can do at Anantara Desaru Coast Resort & Villas in our last issue, turn the page over for the final part and make your reservation plans for an escapade like never before.

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/.
