Last year, she co-produced and directed the documentary, M For Malaysia. This #BossGirl is serious about the need for self-care and mental well-being. After all, a clear mind is the way to go.

7. A concert by SonaOne

The Malaysian singer-songwriter and rapper will be hosting a special performance featuring some of his hottest hits alongside his upcoming trilingual bop (yes, three languages –– English, Malay and French!) single, 'Bomba', that's also due to drop this Friday. SonaOne has had many career-defining songs including 'No More' and 'Firefly' as well as 'Apa Khabar' with 'Joe Flizzow'. In fact, 'No More' was the first English track in the history of the Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) to take home the Best Song Award in 2014. The Pahang-born artiste is definitely one you should watch out for. Here's a fun fact: SonaOne's real name is Mikael Adam Lozach. Here's another fun fact: it's going to be one kick-ass virtual gig for sure. If you've never seen SonaOne perform, why not vibe together on Buro. Hangouts? He's slated for a quick-fire Q&A session with the audience afterwards (yup, we're talking about you!).

Lim's tracks are as unique as it gets. Some of his most popular tunes include 'Knots', 'Choices' and 'Blah Blah Blues', and he even clinched Best Song of the Year by Apple Music and Fresh Vibes of the Year at the National Youth Awards in 2019.

Cafe is a chat room for you to get connected with new friends from Singapore, Malaysia, and all over the globe. You'll be able to strike up conversations over any topic, and it doesn't have to be about COVID-19, heh. The room will be open all day, so don't be shy and just hang out!
