4 tourists dead from bomb explosion at Taba border on sunday

Scary thought that I was there just over a month ago… I count my blessings everyday!

Miriam’s whatsapp message to me just a few hours ago came as a surprise. I’ve been concentrating so much on my students union campaign that the outside world has been a distant thought.

So when her message read; “did you know that yesterday a bus full of (south) Korean tourists exploded in Sinai desert? There was a bomb inside and 13 people got injured, and 4 died. 50km from the Israeli border in Taba. Wtf!” I was brought be back to reality!

ShowImageJust over a month ago I was in the Sinai desert with Miriam. Her “WTF” expression is mutual… It’s just crazy to think that we walked down that same street where the bus exploded on sunday, when we crossed the border from Israel on New Years Eve…

Vanity Fair puts African Beauty centre stay...

So what’s the catch?!

Is it just me, or is it too good to believe that this mainstream high-end magazine known as being “too white” has put Kenyan beauty Lupita Amondi Nyong’o center stage ahead of other well-known Oscar-nominated names, on their front cover?

Evidently it’s not just me questioning!

So when Californian writer Lia Langworthy who hosted me in her Hollywood home 2 years ago, questioned the context of this picture, I just had to take the opportunity get her opinion on my blog!

“Kung Hei Fat Choi!” Celebrating Chinese New Year – in solidarity with the Black Students’ Campaign

Well, it’s not China but it’s the closest I’ll get to it while I’m still in London! I thought I’d share with you my afternoon celebrating Chinese New Year in China Town, London with NUS Black Student Campaign member Barbara Ntumy, who told me how East Asian students can also be an active part of the NUS Black Students’ Campaign!

Don’t forget to follow my student blog… As much as I love travelling I can’t do it all the time – I’m first and foremost the EFed student!
“Kung Hei Fat Choi!”

With my dad: We climbed the Great Wall of China

Flashback! With my dad; We climbed the Great Wall of China!

And yet I was caught by surprise!

Bang snaps hit the floor hard filling the air with popping sounds, and the ground with empty paper casing littered the streets. The sights and smells of East Asian street food on display served behind pop-up stalls outside restaurants enticed hungry well-wishers. Red Chinese lanterns were a familiar sight hanging above every path of the celebrations (and on the costumes of certain enthusiasts!) And the people? A varied mix of Chinese, Londoners and tourists all jointing together in solidarity to celebrate a family-friendly event fused with Eastern culture.
