Working in Summer?!

Congratulations to all who have made it through the tough examinations period! And for those who are in their last few days, you are almost there!

Following the exams, we all have plans to sleep (and sleep and sleep), soak up the sun and enjoy the long days. There have been some pretty sunny days in London the past week […]

    Ladies, Gentlemen, and Those Smart Enough To Have Transcended Gender

Ladies, Gentlemen, and Those Smart Enough To Have Transcended Gender

After an hour’s anticipation in the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, David Hoyle appeared on the small stage accompanied by the Russian national anthem, to the loud cheers of the audience. Motioning for the music to stop, he then bellowed, “Ladies, gentlemen, and those smart enough to have transcended gender, welcome!”

This was not a wild night out – it was in […]

A Life in Boxes and Suitcases

I can’t believe that less than nine months ago, I arrived in the UK and London for the first time, in awe of the city’s night lights and the famous landmarks that I’d seen countless of times in the movies and in television shows. Coming out of Heathrow after a dreadfully long immigration queue with two huge bags of […]

24 Hour Examination

A 24-hour exam??

‘What’s that?’ ‘Is that even a thing?’ ‘Are you lying to me?’ – are but just a few of the responses I have received when I announced to my friends that I would be going into recluse for a day.

This 24-hour exam is part of the assessment for my AN102 Reading Other Cultures: Anthropological Interpretation of Text […]

Growing Up In A Big City

Just a few days ago, I left my teenage years behind! I am officially 20 now, and I found it rather apt that I celebrated my 20th birthday here, away from home – symbolic of growing up and truly a step into adulthood and independence I suppose.

Just a few hours before I turned 20, I was watching a movie […]

What’s the Wonder in Winter Wonderland?

Winter Wonderland – Is it worth the hype?

I have since made three trips to the famous Winter Wonderland situated in Hyde Park (twice with friends visiting from Singapore, and once with my hall mates), so I have decided to qualify myself as a professional in navigating that huge area, and worthy of writing a recommendation to visit it!

There are […]

Please Mind The Platform Gap (Between High School and LSE)

High school might have just ended a few months ago (or close to a year for me, and those who have taken a gap year), but the leap in academic and school culture definitely feels much greater than a mere few months.

Hence, I decided to write this article to clarify five thoughts that might have been bugging some of […]

Chasing Your Dream In London

“Wow! Look look look, that’s Big Ben! We’re landing in nine minutes!”

I exclaimed to another passenger on the flight, as we both strained our necks eagerly to get our first glimpse of English land.

“And they say New York City is the city that never sleeps,” replied the other international student next to me, and then we fell into silence, […]
