I like lists, don’t you? They’re easily digestible, and we get things in a snap—particularly in today’s day and age, where attention spans are short (it used to be 12 seconds in 2000 and now it’s down to 8, which is a second shorter than a goldfish). If you wish to raise your social IQ then you’ve come to the right place, as we’ve done the hard work of curating an exhaustive list of the movers and shakers in society, business, philanthropy, the arts, as well as the next generation of torchbearers. This list is unique to Malaysia Tatler; and the same goes for our regional Tatler editions which also roll out their own list of who’s who. Do make use of our regional Tatler lists—which are also made available online.…

Fast & Furious On paper, the cars of the future seem impossibly perfect. Often all-electric, they’re safer than today’s vehicles and if you’re feeling tired, lots of them will even drive for you. But such perfection makes concept cars seem a little, shall we say, boring. Not so Lamborghini’s Terzo Millennio. Designed in collaboration with engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Terzo Millennio reassures revheads that the safer, eco-friendly cars of the future can be just as much fun as the petrol-driven ones of today. Rather than installing batteries, Lamborghini and MIT are working on pioneering technology that will enable the car to generate its own power through innovative panels in its bodywork. The Terzo Millennio will also be self-healing, with sensors in the car’s chassis directing ‘healing chemistries’…

In fact, embedding these exciting stories into your social media feed and sharing your experiences stimulates a desire to discover new sights and go beyond the horizons to experience the unknown and awaken ourselves from within, which is…

top parties of the year

Ball of a Time WHAT Malaysia Tatler Ball WHEN November 4, 2017 WHERE Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur It began with a stream of familiar faces arriving, looking doubly delightful from the tips of their immaculate manicures to the hems of their gowns. Guests either started the evening snapping #ootds or knocking back Hennessy cocktails. After the ballroom doors opened, squeals of delight were heard upon discovery of this year’s talking point—selfie lights—that would prompt many a photo with pursed lips. Performances by the teens and tots of Dancesteps Studio kept the crowd entertained, as did the commentary by master of ceremonies Arthur Tan. And soon it was the moment everyone’s been waiting for—the Tatler Ball 2017 awards ceremony coupled with acceptance speeches, followed by a whole lot of dancing. All Aboard Flight SY70 WHAT Puan Sri…
