KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 11): To say that the last two years of our lives have been unprecedented is an understatement. No one could have foreseen the magnitude of the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact it would have on our daily lives. While our medical frontliners certainly deserve our eternal gratitude, Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz is paying tribute to our economic frontliners, who played a pivotal part in keeping the nation’s economy afloat throughout the pandemic. 

In his first book penned as finance minister, Weathering the Economic Storm — A Journey through the Uncharted Waters of Covid-19 cleverly puts in context events of the past 24 months or so by including news articles relating to the Finance Ministry’s decisions to stabilise the economy in such uncertain times, supported by commentary from Tengku Zafrul on why certain actions were taken.

Elsewhere in this week’s issue of Options, we feature our pick of 10 watches from the recently concluded Geneva Watch Days showcase, Cartier’s travelling installation Step Into the Wild, and six off-the-beaten-path destinations travel experts recommend visiting this autumn. 

It is a busy week for the performing arts too: Chin San Sooi goes into detail about his upcoming production, Water; acclaimed flautist Perambalam Arumugam talks about Nada Seruling, an original composition launched in conjunction with Malaysia Day this Sept 16. Plus, don't miss our recap on RHB Banking Group’s Art with Heart (AwH) exhibition in Bangsar Shopping Centre. And if you feel like a spot of retail therapy is in order, check out our Treasury page for a selection of Made-in-Malaysia items.

All this and more in your latest copy of Options, out with The Edge Malaysia weekly's Sept 12 issue.
