Editor’s Note


October has always been my favourite month due to personal reasons and almost month-end, Hindus around the world and in the region will be celebrating Deepavali – the Festival of Lights. I don’t know about you but I look forward to donning my traditional wear and indulge in some tasty snacks and sweets!

As end of October is usually synonym with Halloween, Sony Pictures brings us an action-comedy in the form of Zombieland: Double Tap starring Woody Harrelson in the lead role. Also, another comeback by Disney is the gothic-like ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’, sequel to the 2014 global box office hit, Maleficent. Goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that binds her and Maleficent as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play.

As Deepavali approaches and if you’re craving for scrumptious Indian food, look no further than Vanakam India at Horizon Hills serving you the best of North and South Indian food and special Deepavali sweets prepared for the festive season.

Once again you can look forward to a long weekend break this month, and look no further than Le Grandeur Palm Resort in Senai. With its refurbished rooms, Olympic size pool and beautifully landscaped golf courses as well as Spa and great food, book your stay ASAP for a relaxing holiday.

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
