All about Geoff…

Yesterday, we were lucky enough to go on a tour around Tower Bridge with Geoff, one of my volunteer colleagues. Tower Bridge, one of the most historical and beautiful bridges in London, the one that usually is mistaken by the tourists with the London Bridge (please! London Bridge cannot compare to Tower Bridge, people!) While…

No title…

The first time I have ever seen my grandpa crying was our grandma’s funeral. He had suffered from a heart disease and was asked to stay home to help stabilize his health condition instead of going to the funeral house where we waited for people to come and pay our grandma their last visit, saying…

One year in London – Part 1 – Picture time!!!

I love photography. But I can’t remember since when I have adopted this hobby, but I am sure that every day, ‘Where will I go to take pictures today?’ is always what I think first thing in the morning. One year has passed since the first moment I set my foot on to London’s ground…

One day being a farmer right outside of London…

London is going through its last days of summer. One day rarely passes without giving people both rain and sun, which sometimes becomes a disturbing thing to your brain. So when London shows the brighter face, we have to act fast. That is why I always have rush feelings when it comes to where to…

Happy birthday to the Queen of the United Kingdom

Last Saturday, I had an opportunity to be a volunteer for the Queen’s birthday. No need to say how happy I was. When I was in my country, I was so curious about this “system” and the monarchy of England, I was curious about how the people in the UK is treating their Queen, whether…

Soho (London) shed tears for Orlando (Florida, U.S.)

Yesterday afternoon, June 13th, thousands of people have gathered on the main street in Soho, London to pay condolences to the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando (U.S.) two days ago. At 7 P.M, Soho stayed silence for 2 minutes after a long whistle was blown in order to pay condolences to 49 dead…

Volunteering for Westminster Mile (2016)

Yesterday, I had an amazing opportunity volunteering for Westminster Mile 2016 with Team Westminster. Talking about Volunteer, I had arranged/done quite some volunteering work with my University back when I was an undergraduate student, so to me, giving back to the community is not just a task that I need to do, but a hobby that…

London in my…nose

Can you smell London? I don’t know since when I’ve been growing the urge to keep a diary of smells of everywhere I’ve been to in a secret corner of my mind. Right now, I can recall the smell of uncountable sunny noons when I skipped my napping time just to hang out with my…

London Lumiere Festival – Relight your fire

During last weekend, thousands of people (or hundreds thousands) have oozed out on to the streets in central London to eye-witness the London Lumiere Festival 2016. No doubt this has been the most glamorous event so far in London (when I said glamorous, I mean really…twinkle twinkle little lights!) The event started from 6.30 PM (can…

1st semester down!!!

3 months ago, I came to the UK to fulfill my dream of “studying in another country”. Honestly, this journey, to a 32 year old guy who had stayed with his family for nearly 31 and a half year like me, was a huge change. Physically and spiritually. I still remember the first time I…
