Imagine this – he pops in for a surprise visit, turns an ordinary karaoke night into an impromptu fan meet-and-greet, and ends up in a hilarious sing-off with his fans. It’s not just a vocal warm-up, it’s a PR move that’s sure to break the internet — might be something his team can consider!

While in Malaysia, Ed Sheeran could also consider a unique and artistic experience at Kanta Studio. The studio is run by Jeffrey Lim, a photography artist known for his innovative Kanta Portraits project. Jeffrey uses custom-built box cameras to create distinctive black and white portraits, blending large format camera techniques with traditional darkroom printing methods. The result is an instant print produced entirely within the box camera. This old-fashioned approach to photography could provide Ed Sheeran with a nostalgic and memorable keepsake from his trip.

If Ed Sheeran finds himself with some free time during his visit to Malaysia, we suggest he check out the Piying Dream exhibition at REXKL. This unique and original experience, crafted by Danny Rose Studio, takes its inspiration from the art of Chinese shadow play, a cultural art form recognised by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage. It takes this traditional art form and gives it a modern twist, creating a completely new Chinese legend. The story is told through the use of over 3,000 digitized shadow puppet artifacts. Ed Sheeran might even find some new inspiration from this immersive experience.

To celebrate his triumphant return to Malaysia since 2019 and his upcoming concert, we reckon Ed Sheeran should pop by Bar Terumi. Known as ‘the tender bar,’ Bar Terumi is less of a bar and more of a retreat where the drinks are as crafty as Ed’s lyrics. It’s a tranquil hideout where the drinks flow like chart-topping hits, furniture has more stories than his ballads, and windows provide a peek into the cocktail wizardry. It’s basically Hogwarts for cocktail lovers, minus the owls and magic wands.
