Food and drinks events in August that celebrates Malaysia

[Photography and creative: Nat Andrea and Ravin P]

August is the month of celebrating Malaysia and this year marks 64 years of the nation’s independence. Despite the country’s political and economy situation hitting all time low, some remain hopeful and what’s better to lift our spirits than supporting fellow Malaysians.

Although dine-in is now allowed, many bars continue to reach their customers through delivery until the expected inoculation rate is achieved. Meanwhile, celebrate safely at home with drinks from your favourite bar.
