Even locally, there are still plenty of places where we can kick back and enjoy!

The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel

If they love bling, jewellery is the way to go! Of course, you can get plenty of jewellery at jewellery stores such as Tiffany & Co. and POH KONG JEWELLERS and the like, but if you want a Christmas gift that is truly unique, check out some handmade jewellers instead!

The Straits Finery

Focusing on minimalist designs, The Straits Finery uses 14k gold as their primary metal for their jewellery. It does not tarnish easily, and is also durable enough. Minimalist designs are easier to pair, and allow for better self-expression, which is what they have in mind when designing their jewellery!
