• How to Scrapbook

    I used to really enjoy arts and craft as a child. I loved sticking bits of things together in hap-hazard collages or dabbling with paper Mache.  If you remember Neil Buchannan from Art Attack as fondly as I do you’ll understand what I mean. Somehow, it’s been another one of those hobbies that has just […]

  • Graduation and Highlands trip

    My BMSc graduation was at 2.30pm on the 22nd of June 2018.  The Scottish weather gods were especially kind as the clouds parted and we had sunny skies for the ceremony and the many (many) photos after. This was especially special as my parents had flown in a long way away from Malaysia to attend. […]

  • Summer Part One (London)

    2017/2018 was a pretty long academic year and to be very honest I was quite ready for a long break. Somehow my long summer became quite exciting, more by a happy accident than by design. This will be a three-part post of my adventures and misadventures…   After I submitted my dissertation, something new I […]

  • #ByeBMSc

    I’ve been blogging for the university student blog for a little while now, it’s been a welcome change from my essays on patient cases, pathologies and biochemical cellular mechanisms. However, I’ve yet to post anything truly personal. I figured this would be the time to do so and share my thoughts on the academic year […]

  • Exam Woe and Worry

    It’s that season again. Of long days in the library and longer nights binging on coffee (and Oreos) in order to stay awake that extra hour. This exam season will be slightly different for me as I’m intercalating, I’m exposed to an entirely different format of exams and the stress is kind of settling in. […]

  • Why Dundee?

    Dundee is definitely one of the smaller, more student friendly Scottish cities. It may take a little while to grow on you but I’m so glad I’ve gotten to spend my university days here. Everything in Dundee, is ridiculously close. This means you’ll be able to get from one end of town to the other […]

  • The ULTIMATE foodie guide to Dundee.

    I’m unashamedly a self-confessed foodie.  I love trying out new eateries and researching recipes. As far as I’m concerned there’s nothing that a hearty meal (or a late-night Dominos) can’t fix, and it’s even better when it looks so good its Instagram worthy. We’ve all been guilty of taking a quick snap of a particularly […]

  • My favourite event on campus!

    Holi is by far one of my favourite festivals. Think of it as a massive colour run, with loud music, dancing and just good fun.  Holi is the Indian Festival of Colour, celebrating spring, love and the triumph of good. Linked to multiple stories of Indian mythology, it’s steeped in culture and tradition. Of course, […]

  • My taster session of Cardiology

    It can be quite disorientating being thrown into an unfamiliar environment and being expected to perform. Work experience can be uncomfortable and difficult but it’s also where you finally begin to spread your wings and start to put all the pieces together. Being a medical student means that work experience is a careful balance of […]
