As Hari Raya Aidilfitri falls on June 15, most events are held before or after the festive period. There is still plenty to do, however. Here are some of the happenings to look forward to in June.
The Mingle is a two hour social event with beer and finger food held at a different restaurant-bar in Klang Valley every month. It’s a great place to hang out with friends and meet new people. Both Malaysians and Expats are encouraged to join.
Expat Mingles with a view are always a good time; unwind in style while catching up with old friends and making new ones at the next Expat Mingle.
Venue: Sky Bar, Traders Hotel, Level 33, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur

Tarian Asyik is a Kelantanese court dance that traces its roots to the Sultanate of Pattani during the reign of Ratu Kuning (Yellow Queen) in the 17th century. According to the legend from the Hikayat Patani, the dance was created to entertain the grieving Yellow Queen over the loss of her favourite bird, and is the most beloved dance of the legendary Kelantanese princess, Puteri Saadong.
