I really do believe that I’ve made the right decision to live in Southwest London, away from the hustle and bustle of the city proper but filled with so many things to do and places to visit. Plus, it’s just a short train ride away if ever we need our “big city” fix anyway so it’s not like we’re missing out on a lot. The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames was another option f

Things To Do in London | See The Spring Flowers in Bloom in Kew.

Flowers are in bloom, weather is (a bit) warmer and children have now gone out of their winter cocoon – yes, it’s now spring in London! I have now officially witnessed the four seasons of this city since I’ve moved here last August and I can’t say I have a favorite season as of yet. I’m still embracing the change of weather (and scenery) from the desert life of the Middle East. Spring

Expat Life in London | EEA FM Residence Card Application

May 4, 2017
UK Residence card is the first thing one must do when moving to the UK as an expat. While the UK Home Office website offers a detailed information about the documents they require, there’s no clear step-by-step procedure as to how it’s done. I’ve searched every single UK immigration forums to see what needs to be done next which wasn’t very easy to do. So I thought I’d write about my o

Day Trips From London | Canterbury Weekend

When you hear Canterbury one immediately thinks of the Canterbury Tales, the first major work written in English with literary merit. But have you ever read it? Not me, I don’t even know why I know of its existence to be quite honest with you. After my visit to this city, I have an inclination to find a copy of this book. Probably a translated copy to modern English though as I’m afraid I won’t

Oh hey! It’s been awhile. I haven’t written for such a long time on here, not that anyone’s actually holding their breathe waiting for my next post. Life happened, it’s been a crazy month for me and although I’ve been going out and about around the city of London (and beyond) quite a lot, I do forget to take photos and document the whole thing. I guess that’s what happens when yo

I Was Robbed During An Afternoon Tea in London.

March 25, 2017
I’m still a little bit shaken about what happened to me the other day. I’ll try my best to go through it with you as I want to warn everyone of this despicable event which I wouldn’t wish to happen to my worst enemy. Yes, I was robbed during an afternoon tea in London and the person who did it was the regally-dressed hotel staff. She came gliding to our table and handed me the bill, as soon as I o
