Girls…. if you intend to scroll down this area of interest then surely you are a bit bored with ideas and places to hang out with your gang of girls and looking for a happy change. A happy woman is a beautiful woman.

There is nothing as simple as finding small joys in eating. Cooking your comfort food and collectively making a different cuisine which you have tried before but haven't prepared it at home. Making sushi rolls or baking a cake, grilling a fish or making tacos. Anything can be a good treat if you prepare it together and while it's being made you can play some board games like chess, monopoly, scrabble, Uno, checkers while the yummiest food is getting ready. A full fun cooking day. If you are generally inclined towards board games, then we also recommend few cool board game cafes in Kuala Lumpur to spend your whole day with your girl gang.

Driving up your car, picking your friends up or renting and doing a carpool is an amazing way to have fun with your friends. Remember the last time you were talking to a friend about a cafe they visited or a saved picture of a nearby eating joint you saved in your phone to visit someday but did not get time to go. Why not drive down the same hidden cafe and indulge in some gossips and singing with your favourite playlist played in your car... Wow. It can be a perfect idea for a day.

Okay, another thing is if you are looking for a relaxed day and you are also a lazy bunch like us...do a simple theme brunch to add a little punch to the meet-up or decide a cuisine and prepare the menu and have a pot luck and while you eat and praise each other food, but the best chic flicks on the TV to have some added fun, laughter and entertainment.

If you are the ‘go out hang out’ kind of person and you share the similar kind of friend circle and want to have some active day out instead of just sitting and talking, then you should try to get yourself some tickets to a cool live band performing or a day’s pass to the theme park, bowling sessions, some theatre show or very simple, watching an upcoming hyped movie in the theatre near you. Simple and no hassle.
This is mostly me. A creative day is a perfect day. Some of you might get bored or tired to do usual day to day activities which have no freshness any newness. This is the way to deal with your inner artist and get out some cool DIY crafts made. A college or a painting and sculpture or a simple doodle session with your friends sitting at somebody's place can be a perfect time to take out your inner hidden artist and show it to the world
What to say on this? Do I need an explanation?
