Gong Xi RIUH Weekend, KL Monthly Curated Creative Platform


Hey! Chinese New Year vibes at the Gong Xi RIUH over the weekend at APW Bangsar. It was awesome, just in time to catch up with some friends before they balik kampung, and also I did my very last minute Chinese New Year shopping. This is my first time to RIUH In The City but will not be the last. RIUH is a monthly creative platform that hosts an array of artisanal and designer pop-up stores, food stalls, creative workshops, showcases and live acts; only one weekend, each month. Guess what?? I bought a handmade cheongsam, some herbal teas and other knick-knacks.

Because Chinese New Year is round the corner, so this round of RIUH In The City theme was “Gong Xi RIUH” at its usual venue, APW Bangsar, located at Jalan Riong on the 10th and 11th of February from 10am till 9pm.

The whole weekend was memang RIUH! There were 40 pop up stores to shop from with brands such as Bengkel.Co, APOM, Fugeelah, Istimewa, Kritajna, Seniman, Thinkabelle and many more. The best part of RIUH is always the food, among the tantalising treats on offer for the weekend will be provided by Chilli Pang Pang, Kasi Melts, Mom’s BBQ KL, Yoohoo Hot Dogs, The Chekodok Guys and Yellow Whisk.

I bought my handmade batik cheongsam from cotton & sago at a very good price, can’t believe it. I love the material and it’s very comfortable too. And I also bought a box of Chinese Herbal Tea, and some knick-knacks and of course tried their food.
