SPRINGTIME BLOSSOMS

Diana Khoo

Diana Khoo, Editor

If your winter was as exciting and eventful as ours, we should be anticipating the next three months with equal relish. In this light, we have worked on a line-up of features and spreads that we hope will add punch and colour to your spring. From rainbow-hued product spreads and the most covetable stationery in every colour code on the Pantone chart to inviting homes that range from sprawling bungalows to chic condominiums and a curated list of designer-conscious products with which to update your decor, we trust you will find all that you need and want in our first issue of Haven this year.

Easter is also around the corner and to inspire the mistress or master of the kitchen (the heart of the home, we always say), we looked south and asked Kristang chef extraordinaire Melba Nunis to share a few of her favourite recipes. They are on Page 96. But if toiling away in the kitchen does not appeal to you, do know that all it takes is a short drive (preferably followed by a suite stay at The Majestic Hotel) to the historical city of Melaka where her eponymous restaurant, Melba at the Mansion, is ready and waiting to pamper your palate.

We could not let the recent Chinese New Year festivities pass without a splendid celebration either, so do turn to Page 90 to see all the fun and feasting that took place at Haven’s special healthy Lunar New Year brunch in partnership with Bön Estates Kuala Lumpur. The event, held at the prestigious property developer’s beautiful sales gallery in Bangsar, also featured special cooking demonstrations by celebrity model, chef and cookbook author, Danielle Graham, as well as Levy Li, founder of The Good Co. We will definitely be hosting more events where we can connect and engage with all readers of Haven on a regular basis, so if you would like to join us, do drop us an email. We would love to say hi.

Enjoy the issue and see you in the summer!
