Five things to do this weekend
It’s not going to be another weekend trolling the shopping malls because we’re recommending a lovely concert, a feast or two and a weekend market.
French Night Masters Concert
This Saturday evening, sit back and enjoy a concert led by conductor Dato' Woon Wen Kin for musical pieces by French composer Saint-Saëns . Pianist Carolyn Lo will go front and center at this tribute, playing Piano Concerto No. 4, Op. 44, Symphony No. 1, Op. 2 and Danse Bacchanale. It’ll be at 8:15pm in penangpac and tickets are from RM15.
Straits Quay Weekend Market
From books, home ware, clothing and antiques, this market is on the entire weekend from 10:30am right up to 10:30pm when the mall closes. There are bargains to be had and a promise of a good time for the whole family.
How To Catch A Star
Terrific for kids, the Blunderbus Theatre Company from the UK has produced this children’s classic by Oliver Jeffers on a boy’s love for stars and his mischievous plan to have one of his own. It’s suitable for kids between the ages of 3-7 and this weekend there are matinees to suit the young audience. Tickets are between RM50 and RM89.
Authentic Malay Meals
Each Saturday, Nazlina Spice Station that normally holds cooking classes on local fare, turns into a private dining room catering to small groups who want to experience a Malay meal such as rendang, nasi minyak or kerabu udang. This satisfying and tasty experience is RM45 per head.
Surf & Turf Buffet at G Hotel
Kick off your Saturday meal at 6:30pm at this seafood spread in G Café within G Hotel. Grilled squid to prawns will accompany salads, potatoes or any other myriad dishes from the buffet. However, if seafood is not your thing, they also have prime meats that are barbecued to perfection. The spread is RM99++ per person.
