Easter in Germany : Hamburg

So, it’s Easter Break once again. Being one of the students pursuing their studies in a foreign land 11000km away from home, we had these few options: take the opportunity to explore your neighboring countries; take the first trip back home to SG; or to be a studious and meritocratic student and prepare diligently for…

Road Trip: How to prepare

And so, aside from the types of roadtrippers, here’s the golden question: what should we prepare when going on a road trip? Although I’ve only done one proper road trip, here’s some amateurish advice I can provide: 1) Ample Rest – For drivers, co-drivers or navigators, it is essential to get ample rest to ensure…

Roundabouts in the UK

Special shoutout for the beloved roundabouts (my bestfriends #sarcasmintended) — NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF CONFUSION these entities encompass. Which exits to take, which exits NOT to take, you have to be really careful. Well, we used GoogleMaps to navigate our way so it may not be as accurate (I haven’t tried the alternative –…

Roadtrip Around Cornwall and Devon

Yes, and I seem to have a newfound love for road trips ever since I’ve come to the UK. Maybe its the vast geographic extent this country has relative to mine, together with the lovely turquoise blue card now most of my friends possess: our driving license (Thats the colour of the ones in Singapore),…

Road Trip: Types of Road Trippers

Yes, first paper’s tomorrow. Yet, here I am posting. But it can’t be helped if my mind wanders off and away from the boredom of chunks and chapters of words. Looking back into my first proper road trip exactly a month ago, a group of classmates and I decided to venture up and about the…

Pitstop: Bristol

Thoroughly underrated, an utterly breathtaking view by the Bristol Suspension Bridge. 

Solitude

Nights like these are inevitable. Nights where all sorts of feelings come flooding back. Feelings about the past, the present and the future. Woes which I have once had and worried over, the ones which I have been worrying over so much I thought I couldn’t worry any further, returned, and continue to haunt me…

Pride

I’m sure that everyone has had their numerous encounters pertaining to ego, be it their own or related parties. Pride is part of human nature. It is what motivates us, what encourages us to continue on. It is linked to many aspects of our lives, be it in work life, family, or love. I, for…

Sudden Food for Thought

Monday morning, after a crazy weekend of activities, it’s back to school for us INTO students. While getting ready for school, I tuned into BBC radio, and a food for thought was the topic for the morning: What would you want your loved ones to do for your funeral? Many may shirk away from this…

SINGAPORE DAY 2014 LONDON

Two weeks left to exams, but the idea of a “Singapore Day” in London sounds intriguing enough to entice us Singaporeans to go. Natives from all parts of UK, even Europe, all came down to London during the weekend of 29March2014 to attend the event. Food, Concerts, Speech from the PM, activities were on the…

Stonehenge – Salisbury Day Trip

15 pounds for a day trip to these two places?! WHY NOT? 😀 15th March. We embarked on yet another day trip to another part of South-west UK. As the spring warms us up with its bright and lovely sun, first thought we had upon alighting at Stonehenge: Let me (us) take a selfie. So…

Lost Soul of 2013

Touching down, feeling so lost. All my plans on what to do the first thing I touch down, things to buy, where to go, what’s next, etc. My mind was blank. I didn’t feel anything at all—I didnt know what or how to react. All I know was, I’m now in UK. a thousand miles…
