• Baby it’s Cold Outside

    The winters in Scotland can be brutal, especially if you’re an international student from a warmer climate. I know it can take some adjusting to however, fear not! There are lots of things you can do to make winter your favourite season of the year. Fuzzy/Cosy/ Electric?! blankets are a must.  You can easily pick […]

  • You can’t buy happiness, but you can get a pizza.

    If you’ve read any of this blog my main motivations are pretty clear. If you haven’t already grasped this forgive me for being too subtle. Food. Food makes me so happy. As far as food goes there isn’t much else better than pizza so you can imagine how excited I was to try yet another […]

  • A weekend out in Dundee

    Dundee has grown in leaps and bounds, even since I started university here 4 years ago. I’ve watched swanky new restaurants open, an entirely different set of shops take over the Overgate (no pun intended) and most recently the opening of the stunning Victoria & Albert Museum. One weekend we decided to ditch the books […]

  • A date at Italian Grill

    There comes a point in life where most of us realise it’s your friends that eventually have your back and it’s the dinner dates with your girlfriends that make the most memorable nights.  Cue Simran, one of my closest (craziest) friends in Dee and my dinner date for Saturday. We decided to head to Dundee’s […]

  • 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 […]
