If you don’t visit Helsinki your vacation remains un-Finnished.

I love travelling.  There is something refreshing by default about setting out to explore a new country or even a city just a few hours away. Travelling is a luxury; it costs time and money both of which are in short supply when you are a budgeting university student. But where there’s a will there’s […]

A few words to young international students.

I attended secondary school in a small town on the East coast of Malaysia, Kuantan. Typical to the experiences of most Malaysian students there was a great deal of emphasis placed on scoring a perfect string of As’ accompanied by a host of extra-curricular activities. Both of which I quite happily strived to achieve. I […]

Food for thought : Recycling Bags

About a hundred billion plastic bags are used every year in the U.S. alone. And then, when one considers the huge economies and populations of India, China, Europe, and other parts of the world, the numbers can be staggering. The problem is further exacerbated by the developed countries shipping off their plastic waste to developing […]

Work Hard, Relax Hard

It seems like a pattern – the more work you do, the more you need to take care of yourself. Kind of like rechargeable batteries, I guess. At the end of a productive day, I often find myself in a could-be-awful state when my mind is too exhausted to get any more to-do things done, […]

Mid semester breaks

If you are like me, you live to travel and experience another culture. A cultural vulture! Combine this with a love of sun and a hatred for British winter and spring you will find yourself like me constantly looking at Skyscanner trying to find the best deal. While I am currently a student and working […]

Making a difference, actually.

Ecology is a topic that got a lot of coverage last week. Unfortunately, many of the talks were fundamentally broken, again. Like when people go demonstrate into the local downtown with vague banners like “BAN ALL FOSSIL FUELS NOW.” – It is no different than to demonstrate with slogans such as “Stop organized crime by […]

About Societies, how they help international students and a great new event

As an international student, I can sometimes feel detached from my own culture, while being abroad and that is where the different cultural and national societies help a lot. During these few months I’ve been in Dundee, I never felt alone in another, unknown country, exactly because I have these international societies to help with […]

Tay’s Tributaries

The river Tay, on which Dundee is based, has the largest discharge in the UK. It is fueled by streams all over the lower region of the Highlands, and thanks to the local landscapes, they often have some nice waterfalls on their way. Waterfalls are great to try out techniques like long exposure in practice, […]
