Perfect Views for a Date
Miss Manners once said, “There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.”

The Yum List can’t guarantee the affection part of the equation, but we can set the scene by giving you ideas for fun entertainment and fabulous food. Here’s the seventh in a series of suggested itineraries for taking your loved one, or someone you’re hoping will soon become your special person, on a Date in Kuala Lumpur:

Urban Romance – Date Itinerary in Damansara

Take your sweetie to the heights of Damansara for a line-up of urban romance.

As you ascend the hill to the peak of Changkat Semantan towards the Clearwater Residence, whisper in your partner’s ear that this date is going to launch with intrigue, continue with surprise and end with a golden sunset.

Dazzle her with your navigation skills and “in-the-know” tips on the hidden gems in the city as an elevator door glides open on the ground floor revealing the mysterious, dimly lit interior of Way Modern Chinois.

Mirrors are interrupted with modernly ornate metal grilles and a giant vase of orchids stands erect in the middle of the room. The rippling steel casts silhouettes across the floor and tables and, lighting exudes a warm yellowish glow. It sets a mood of sultry excitement.

Roofed with a traditionally shaped Chinese awning, it’s the colour of cement, converting ancient architecture into contemporary chic. Metallic chairs continue the glamour with sequined pillows cushioning their seats. Low round tables and border lounges provide cozy seating spaces and the mix of funky relaxed house music parcels up the happening scene.

Return to the dining area and find a cozy table for two. The chef is an experimenter and artist at heart, aiming to transport clients to a different world. He wants to entertain both the taste buds and the mind, while satisfying the tummy and the palate. Order the lavish Truffle Roast Duck (which you’ve cleverly ordered 24 hours in advance) and pick from a host of other alluring dishes. Don’t eat too much though, as next is the spa.

The Italian Lover’s Package, (which you booked a week ago and reminded your partner to pack a swim suit for), lasts for 140 minutes and includes a lightly perfumed bath, scrub and massage. Take the afternoon at an unhurried pace and explore the Jacuzzi, steam room and pool before redressing.

For a date that’s going exceptionally well, or a longer gift together, book a stay at the beautifully modern Clearwater Residence. The only way to make the date better, is to prolong it, right?
