May Instagram Collage

Just when I was thinking it’d be cool to make these Instagram summaries a regular thing, I managed to skip a month in April. I’ll make up for it in June I promise, but here’s what happened in May. Date night at Timezone/City Amusements – …

I Speak the English

This is an excerpt of a piece that was published in Vertigo: and those we’ve left behind, Issue 2 2015. Vertigo is a student-run magazine at the University of Technology, Sydney. The full version is free and available in hard copy around UTS, soon to be …

Fresh Prince

Matt threw a belated 21st shindig last week at The Avenue. We’re both from the same year at the same university, doing the same half degree but I don’t think we ever got around to talking much until we went on exchange together. Incidentally we …

London, again

I haven’t updated in awhile because I’ve been busy since I got back to Malaysia. Between seeing family, starting work and recently falling sick, time has absolutely flown and I can’t believe it’s almost three weeks since I left Stockholm. I still have a few …

Lantis

The blogpost everyone on exchange has surely been waiting for. A recap of all the meals I had at Lantis. To the curious, Lantis is the biggest restaurant on Stockholm University campus. You pay 82 kr (MYR 41/ AUD 15) or 62 kr with a …

Barcelona

The photo above shows me in my usual tourist garb. Get comfortable with me in my thrifted men’s L denim shirt and blue-green bathroom slippers. I’m looking absolutely bewildered while in mid-conversation with Shaun. This was photographed somewhere along the tourist trap that is La Ramblas …

Belgium Part 2 – Bruges

Here is my horribly delayed post on Bruges. On our second day in Belgium we caught a train to iconic Bruges. Some of you like myself, heard of it off the film In Bruges. While I didn’t chance to meet crazy gun-wielding bad guys or hookers …

Belgium Part 1

After the week long absence due to a heavy-weight 75% assignment, I am back to regale my travel tales. (For those still following the story, the MH370 is still missing. I’m still posting updates every so often but no great leads yet) Last week, Jordan …

London Part 2

Towards the end of Day 2 Grace arrived from Newcastle. And with three English interstate children (Grace from Newcastle, Hillary from Bristol, Jun Wen from Manchester) and one Swedish-Australian-Malaysian social leper, our party was complete. We had supper at a Japanese diner after grossly miscalculating …
