Where to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022 in KL?
December was all about yuletide feasting, while January brimmed with numerous pre-Chinese New Year luncheons. February was saddled with guilt from gastronomic intemperance, with trips to the gym and detoxing sessions offering much relief. What’s in store for March? Celebrating women’s achievements, empowering sisters alike and perhaps bar hopping with your confidantes.
International Women’s Day 2022 dining and drinking promos in KL and PJ:
The RuMa X Swiss Watch Afternoon Tea at The LIBRARI
Patrons at The LIBRARI will be treated to an exclusive afternoon tea curated by The RuMa’s Executive Chef Tyson Gee where titbits are symbolically crafted to represent the deep resolve found in modern women. The collaboration between one of KL’s top hotels and Swiss Watch is a sensorial journey through the ages, reflective of how far women have advanced in society.
For instance, the Lapsang Souchong Tea in the Macaron is indicative of women’s courage to stand out and not be held back. The Temerloh Vanilla used for the Entremet speaks of Malaysian women championing their causes on the world stage, while the unusual Jackfruit and Chilli combination embodies creativity and the courage to be different.
You will find Lapsang Souchong and Passion Fruit Macaron; Temerloh Vanilla Entremet; Gula Melaka Soy Sauce Salted Caramel Tartelette; Coconut, Jackfruit and Chilli Roll; Roselle and Yoghurt Friand, Truffle Chicken Mushroom Vol-au-vent; Crispy Prawn Ball with Pineapple Sweet Chilli Sauce; Scotch Egg; Smoked Salmon Puff; and Highland Vegetable Pai Tee on the menu.
Priced at RM170 nett per person, the celebratory afternoon tea set is served from 5 March till 1 May 2022, every Saturday and Sunday. The first 100 customers who purchase two sets are entitled to an exclusive assortment of classic teas from Swiss Watch Pavilion KL worth RM79.

Maiden Voyage by Caorunn Gin at Three x Co
Perhaps the most influential female drinks media pioneer in town, Kim Choong, who is also the founding editor of Thirstmag.com, will go behind the bar and take up a guest shift to concoct signature cocktails and raise funds for charity. While no exact details of the cocktails she will be making for your enjoyment, we do know there will be a trio of cocktails made with Caorunn Gin. It is happening on March 7, 8pm onwards.
The benefiting charity Happy Cure comprises a group of women aiming to raise awareness of children battling cancer. The funds raised will go towards care packages for the caretakers – women who are often overlooked and overworked – of these children in the form of pampering kits, meal and shopping vouchers, and art and craft kits.
