Kahii Sydney

Hatted Japanese restaurant Kuro has opened up a sister cafe and wine bar just a few doors down on Kent Street, just a stone’s throw from Queen Victoria Building. And while it’s nothing like the beautifully considered dining experience at Kuro – that Japanese fried chicken is a must – Kahii has quickly become one of my favourite spots in the CBD. 

The diminutive wine bar opens out onto the street and feels like you’re somewhere other than Sydney, almost as if some Japanese hipster from Shimokitazawa decided that the trendy Tokyo suburb should move on from curry and cocktails and embrace vino. With institutions like Cantina OK!, The Baxter Inn and The Rook nearby, it’s nice to have a reliable wine bar that isn’t in Surry Hills or Darlinghurst. – Chris Singh

REIN Shampoo & Conditioner

After a three-year production journey, I’m elated to say that my favourite thing of February was a product that I developed – REIN Shampoo & Conditioner. I’m not here to toot my own horn, I’m just here to say that it’s the most stylish anti-dandruff shampoo on the planet, that feels as good as it looks. If you value aesthetics as much as I do, you’ll be as stoked as I am to have it in your shower. – James Want

The Geo Spa, Four Seasons Langkawi

To close out February, I had the unrivalled pleasure of seeing two close friends tie the proverbial knot on a kilometre-long stretch of pristine Malaysian beachfront, amid the sprawling private grounds of Four Seasons Langkawi. Somewhere along the way – amidst all the carousing, celebrating and relentless clinking of glasses – my wife and I had an ancillary opportunity to slip away and avail ourselves of the hotel’s spa facilities. Good call, that. 

In spite of a pervasive atmosphere which might best be described as ‘The White Lotus: Tropics Edition’ I was nevertheless impressed with the Geo Spa signature treatments. For couples looking to push the pinas out, ‘Raja & Ratu’ (~$940) is your ticket to ultimate relaxation.

Even by the award-winning standard of other Four Seasons spas throughout Southeast Asia, this package is a tour de force of indulgence from beginning to end: beginning with detoxifying body scrubs for you and your partner, followed by a lymphatic massage and calm-inducing oil therapies. 

Truly: a fantastic bit of fun for couples and loved up leisure travelers, not to mention – a testament to the Four Seasons brand’s continued devotion to the cause of experiential luxury, no expense spared. – Randy Lai

Reebok Nano X3

I’ve enjoyed a couple of pairs of Reeboks over the last few years (especially the trail running-ready Reebok Nano X1 Adventure Shoes), so I was keen to give the new more general-purpose Reebok Nano X3 trainers a try. I’ve been spending a bit less time running over the last year and more time in the gym recently, so they’re ideal as a stable shoe while you’re lifting, but still comfortable enough for a quick warm-up jog or short run when you’ve finished work. They’re available in seven different colourways, so if you’re after a great all-around shoe to work out in, the Nano X3 will serve you well. – Nick Kenyon

Southwinds Sailing Yacht

I finally had the pleasure of stepping aboard the 60-foot sailing yacht ‘Southwinds’ on a glorious Sydney summer evening last week. The family-owned, twin-mast vessel was built in Sydney in the 1950s and has caught my eye from my daily commute on the Manly ferry for years now. I am pleased to report it was just as magnificent standing under its imposing sails as it is to look at from afar.

I was a guest for one of the company’s ‘Luxury Champagne Cruises’ – which depart every alternate Thursday from Sydney’s Opera House at the cost of $250 a ticket, which includes canapes and a welcome glass of Laurent-Perrier La Cuvee. If you’d prefer to spend more time aboard (and have it all to yourself), hourly private charters start at $800 per hour. Under sail, this beauty is surely the most elegant yacht on the harbour and a surefire win for hosting visitors, your better half, or celebrating a special occasion. – John McMahon

TheraFace PRO

I must admit, I didn’t “get” the Theraface when it was sent to me towards the end of last year. Therabody, known for its high-end percussive massage guns, has been attempting to become a full-blown tech wellness company for a while now with various health-related devices extending beyond just on-demand deep-tissue massages. Yet, I thought this was a flop when I first used it. 

And I guess it’s because it takes effort, and patience, to see the value. There are various attachments, like massage guns, and each is designed for different hot or cold effects on the skin. I’m not the type of person to need much maintenance on my skin, but I definitely appreciate that I now have microcurrent therapy, light therapy and Cyrothermal therapy, amongst others, at my fingertips whenever I want. It won’t at all replace going to an actual skin care specialist, but having things like LED light therapy so readily available can help make skin feel tighter and smoother. – CS
