Another binge-worthy movie/TV series list!

Another binge-worthy movie/TV series list!

Last year, I wrote a blog called ‘Netflix’s binge-worthy list’ (for those who are interested, you can find it here). In this blog, the only difference is that some of the movies or TV series I’m going to list aren’t accessible or available on Netflix. […]

Urie Diaries: A Day in London

Urie Diaries: A Day in London

It’s been so long since I have written an entry for ‘Urie Diaries,’ so I thought today would be a good chance to revisit the series. The 9th of April was the beginning of our Easter break, so I thought I’d come home. At first, I […]

My top 4 favourite Filipino foods!

My top 4 favourite Filipino foods!

Recently, I have been craving many things, whether it be books, sweets, or food. One of them is Filipino food! Of course, nothing else can beat the cooking of one’s homeland dishes. I thought it would be interesting to share with you my favourite foods […]

Things to do in Spring!

Things to do in Spring!

Springtime. I could basically taste it. (Metaphorically speaking, of course.) Lately, every time I’ve stepped out of my accommodation, whether to do my daily grocery shopping or attend a lecture at university, I can feel the change in the air. Despite how much the warm […]

My Life is So Boring…

Or is it?  It was a Monday, and I was awoken by the buzzing of my alarm. Groaning, I stumbled to my table near my bed, grabbed my alarm and stopped it. I remember seeing that it was 7:30am. Nevertheless, I groggily climbed back onto […]

I Read Books That BookTok Recommended to Me

At this point, I think I should consider my love for books as a personality trait. (LOL!) TikTok is probably one of the biggest and most used platforms in the world right now, and it is the app that I mostly waste my time on. Seriously. A […]

My Journey as a Self-Published Author

My Journey as a Self-Published Author

It was October 2020 when a tiny spark of ambition ignited somewhere in a small room in Birmingham. An aspiration is based on wishful thinking, not knowing if it will come true.   It was October when I discovered a specific book genre that intrigued me, […]

Philippines: An Unforgettable Summer

Philippines: An Unforgettable Summer

Waking up to bitterly cold, rainy and gloomy weather hasn’t put me in high spirits lately. I have found it quite tricky to get out of bed. Not only is it comfortable, but I dread picking out layers and layers of outfits to keep me […]

An Experience: Moulin Rouge! The Musical

An Experience: Moulin Rouge! The Musical

Back at it again with another musical review! So far, I have watched at least four musicals, Moulin Rouge being the fourth one. I had the opportunity to watch this during my three-week break before the second term starts. For those who are considering seeing […]

Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentine’s Day Ideas

Although it is a day after Valentine’s once you read this, I couldn’t help but write one more Valentine’s-related blog (and probably another one next week. I mean, to be fair, February is the month of “love”). Therefore, as you probably saw from the title, […]
