Interiors: Hallway Snippets & StreetHub

Inspired and encouraged by the success of my living room makeover I thought I'd put more effort into decorating the most sadly-neglected space in my apartment: my hallway, with a little help from StreetHub.

Interiors: London Living room

I have a confession to make that I hope you won't judge me too harshly for.

Making a difference this Christmas: Crisis At Christmas 2014

I've received heaps of positive feedback on my  blog post about how to gain permanent residence (PR) in the UK. It seems that lately my posts about more practical life advice (home decor, travel etc.) are well received which I imagine reflects my readers' lives: young adults like myself who have been following Posh, Broke, & Bored while both myself and my blog topics evolve as we mature. Even carefree ingenues must blossom into nubile sophisticates, yes? As we stride away from the me-centric stages of adolescence and toward compassion for the universe beyond our own orbit we find ourselves caring a little more for those around us, and realising how blessed we are. I mean, you're probably reading this on a smartphone, computer, or tablet which means you're probably reasonably well off. I hope you'll spare some of your time and allow me to speak a little about a cause that has become quite dear to me, which is Crisis, the national charity for single homeless people.

How to Stay On In The UK: My Understanding on how to gain PR

"How do you remain in the UK?" is the most common question fellow Malaysians have asked me. I completely understand their curiosity, after all I know firsthand how difficult it is for anyone outside of the European Union and Switzerland to stay on in the United Kingdom once they've stayed their student visa. While I don't claim to be an expert on immigration I can say that having stayed in London for eight years on three different visas has given me some insight on gaining permanent residence here.

The Secret (City) Garden: St Dunstan-in-the-East

Halfway between London Bridge and Tower Hill, on a hill accessible only by a steep, cobblestoned path so narrow you'd be forgiven to stroll through and feel like you're the only person in the city, is a hidden garden that time seemingly forgot.

Transylvanian Christmas: Dracula's Castle, Bran, Romania

On our final day in Transylvania Henry and I set out to 'Dracula's Castle' in Bran to separate myth from man: Bram Stoker's Dracula versus Vlad the Impaler. The stakes *hehe* were high---we were cutting it fine if we were to catch our flight back to London from Bucharest---but we were more than determined to sink our teeth *ha* into this last endeavour of ours, the final nail in the coffin *huhu* in our tour of Romania, so to speak. How could I ever look myself in the mirror *chortle* again if I went all the way to Transylvania without visiting Bran Castle, commonly known as Dracula's Castle?
