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, […]

My Favourite Romance Films!

My Favourite Romance Films!

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I thought it would be a good idea to share some cool – or better yet, the worst – “puppy love” stories I had throughout lower secondary school. Only then did I realise that most of those stories were […]

Books I Read Before 2021 Ended

Books I Read Before 2021 Ended

If you have been following me for a while, you will know that I love reading. So I thought I’d share the books I’ve read recently and might as well share my thoughts on them – a review, if you will.  First on my list […]

Urie Diaries: An Eventful Wednesday

Urie Diaries: An Eventful Wednesday

It was Monday evening when I saw my phone light up from the corner of my eyes. Dropping whatever I was doing, I reached over to grab my phone and check what it was. It turned out to be a message from a friend who […]

My Blogging Experience!

My Blogging Experience!

So after an incredible year, my blogging journey with University College Birmingham is finally coming to an end. It’s a very bittersweet moment as I write down my last blog, bringing in all the flashbacks of this year and the blogs I have shared with […]

A Christmas but not-so Christmas memory

A Christmas but not-so Christmas memory

With Christmas just around the corner, I thought it would be an excellent and funny idea to share with you one of the most memorable and possibly stupidest (but funny though!) Christmas memories from when I was a child.  Christmas is always my favourite holiday […]
