Help for the Silly Season, Kuala Lumpur – Delivery, Gifts, Drinks and Festive Menus

We could all use a little help sometimes, especially as the year ends, and work and social commitments seem to double at equal rates. Fortunately there are a bunch of services in Kuala Lumpur designed to take the workload off you and make the festive season an enjoyable, rather than a labourious, affair. Here we’ve collected some of our favourite teams to assist.


InterContinental Kuala Lumpur

Why shop, cook and clean yourself when chefs at the InterContinental Kuala Lumpur with make a roast with all the trimmings for you? They have a bunch of Christmas desserts, cakes and cookies too that make delicious endings to a meal, or sweet gifts for friends. Check out their service here.

Wine Talk

A little lubrication usually adds merriment to any event, and Wine Talk is yet another service happy to send their goods directly to your door. Wines and craft beers are hand picked by their in-house sommelier to suit your individual preferences of colour, grape and region. We recently tried some new additions from France and a bottle of bubbly that all made it to our request lists for Santa. There’s a very cool subscription service too.
