London 2012 Opening Ceremony

Olympics Opening Ceremony: Lessons for Malaysia

Last night, I watched the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games for the second time, in theĀ solitudeĀ of my room. I had a great time watching it with friends at their place for the first time on the actual night, and in general really enjoyed it. That night, I posted this updated on my […]

London 2012 - Let the Olympic Games begin!

When I had applied for the British Chevening Scholarship early last year, I didn’t really occur to me what an amazing year it would be like to live in the UK. This despite the fact that my sister and I had already made plans to ballot for Olympic Games tickets and fly over if we […]

My first British 10k run in London

It’s been a while since I’ve done a proper run so I was really excited for the British 10k run (powered by Nike) which took place on Sunday. Two years ago, I had signed up for the run but it was a couple of days after I had arrived in London for a holiday and […]

My first visit to Wimbledon

I don’t mean to sound morbid but I have often said that once I get to attend all four tennis Grand Slam tournaments, I can die happy. Well, I don’t think I’m ready yet to embrace death but on Saturday, Day 6 of this year’s Wimbledon tournament, I moved on step closer to making that […]

Michaelangelo's David - finally!

In 1997, my sister and I ran around The Louvre in Paris in the short time we had looking for Michaelangelo’s masterpiece called David. We couldn’t find it. Finally, we went up to the information counter to ask for it and the lady looked at us blankly, unsure of what we were on about. After […]

Sharing session with #cronkiteuro12 students

London was the first of three European stops for the students […]

Paradigm Mall issue: My social media perspective

By now, many of you who are active on the Malaysian social mediascape would have heard about the disaster on Paradigm Mall’s Facebook page a week ago. In response to complaints about elevators at the new shopping mall, someone with administrator access to the page took a rather unpopular tone – sarcasm. Such a reaction […]

Getting a good view of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant

It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations this weekend and that’s really all that’s gotten London buzzing all week. Over the past few days, you could see many different buildings around the city flying the Union Jack, and there is even a gigantic poster of the royal family at the Queen’s silver jubilee celebrations along the […]

Summer in London

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been in London for almost nine months now. How time has flown by. Throughout these months, I have experienced seasonal weather like never before. When autumn was here, I was mesmerised by the different textures it afforded. Then winter arrived and the white snow (even if it was only […]
