RIUH in Ramadhan

I have actually heard a lot about RIUH and how it is a specially curated creative platform where one can discover a spectrum of eclectic, homegrown artisanal brands; discover local and international flavours to feast on; creative workshops; showcases and live acts, all under one roof....


It is pretty much similar  to community-based artisanal markets such as Covent Garden in London, Finders Keepers in Australia, Knack Market in Bangkok, Brightspot Market and Indoestri in Indonesia and Public Garden in Singapore...


RIUH aims to put Kuala Lumpur on the creative map - timely, to further enhance the creative industry in Malaysia. 

So anyway, since this is the blessed month of Ramadhan, I was there at RIUH for the first time and I was amazed at the transformation, it was a Ramadhan Bazaar like no other, a soulful souk for all ages to come together for a special time with friends and family - all which happened at APW Bangsar recently on 2nd and 3rd June from 4 pm till midnight. 


It was surely fun with being able to shop for pretty unique clothing, accessories...

...and my daughter loved the buka puasa food (a pleasant difference from the norm) and for those who stayed late, they could have their moreh (supper after Terawikh prayers) there at RIUH...


The kuih-muih (cookies and cakes) there were just so heavenly delicious I wanted to buy them all... and the  barang-barang rumah (household items) was certainly unique and gorgeous....





We had a ball of a time listening to cool tunes with the Good Vibes Festival who will be giving you a teaser on what to expect from this year’s edition of Good Vibes Festival on 21st & 22nd of July in Genting Highlands. Chill out to cool tunes from DJs Dangerdisko and Rizki while acoustic sounds of the evening provided by Bil Musa, Froya and Jumero as you shop, hangout and break your fast at this Pre-Good Vibes do....



My girl and I simply loved the cultural performances - which was held in celebration of the Rice Harvest Festivals, known as ‘Hari Kaamatan’ in Sabah and ‘Hari Gawai’ in Sarawak with special performances of the traditional Tarian Ngajat Iban and Tarian Sumazau! 




The kids and young at heart had a great time indulging their creative cravings such as communal ketupat making, make your own raya cards and community wall painting and even doodling a car... 


To those who were there I am sure you had an awesome time like I did... but for those who missed out...  no worries, see you there for the next edition... Follow RIUH’s journey to add soul to KL via www.riuh.com.my Instagram and Facebook account - @riuhinthecity or drop a note at hello@riuh.com.my
