From Chinese New Year celebrations to premiere red carpets and product launches, here’s a list of dope events we went to over the past few weeks:

Maksim Entertained Fans With His Greatest Hits
From the moment Maksim walked on stage, audiences at the Plenary Hall KLCC were spellbound with his musicality. Broken into 2 segments, the 47-year-old Croatian pianist brought back a ton of nostalgia with his breakout hit “Flight of the Bumblebee”, “Exodus”, and “Croation Rhapsody”. He even included popular themes from “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Game of Thrones”.
“Sometimes young people see classical music as too serious, and the way it’s presented in a concert hall can be a little cold for them. So, crossover which fuses classical and other types of music is more interesting to them,” he was quoted as saying during a press conference. More than 2 decades since he entered showbiz, Maksim’s musical ability and charisma can still draw in a whole new crop of music lovers.
