Android Studio

I finally created my first Android App with Android Studio. I had prior experience before using a third party app creator which makes the experience this time around easier. My app with the highest installs is at 1,000+ and I am hoping that I can beat that record. It is now awaiting approval before being […]

Galette des Rois – King Cake

I was curious when I saw the bakeries and shops selling cakes with a paper crown and eventually found out it was Galette de Rois or translated as King Cake. Traditionally in France, it was eaten on the 12th day of Christmas on 6th January.  It is to celebrate the Epiphany, a religious feast day […]

Another nostalgic moment and this song by Man Bai translates to You Are My Inspiration. I can recall precisely when I first heard this song but it was one of those that instantly become my favourite.

Where To Get Rid Of Your Christmas Tree In France?

Well, when we first got our Christmas tree, I can’t help it but wonder how do I get rid of it when Christmas is over. In the UK, I am aware that the council sets up collection points which was in my local council park the last time where we can just drop them off. […]

Standing In The Eyes Of The World – Ella

Listening to this song brings me back in time when I was a student in Penang Free School. It was the official theme of the 1998 Commonwealth Games hosted in the capital of Malaysia. I was not fortunate enough to have been in the games or witness the opening ceremony. It did however gave me […]
