Hi everyone! My name’s Caelan and I’m one of the new international student bloggers here at QUT. This is my first blog post and I’m super excited to share what I’ve been up to lately, apart from handing in my final assignments and studying for exams!
Who says Melbourne is the most livable city in the world? I think Brisbane is! Seriously, I mostly love the fact that Brisbane is located in Queensland; where the adventure is. Brisbane is just a couple of hours away by plane to the beautiful North Tropical Queensland. The best thing I can find about Australia so far. Tell me I’m exaggerating- but please do follow @tropicalnorthqueensland and @gbrmarinepark on Instagram, and go there quick to prove me wrong.
‘Get-Set‘ oh wait! It’s week 13 already 😮 & we are soon ‘Going’ to have final exams & assessments due. Well, chances are that you are stressing just like me. So, let’s explore some tips to get you through this hard time with flying colors.
What almost shocked me the most about living in Australia are the artists that keep on coming back to see their fans down here. Even if they have to travel from the other parts of the world! Specific artists that I adore don’t come much to my home country, Indonesia (maybe the fan power isn’t enough or my country wasn’t ready to have them around lol), which makes me beyond amused coming down here- Brisbane- and I find it so easy to go to gigs.
The semester break. Best time of the school year. Just kidding. Or not?
Most of my friends already made plans to travel or go back to their home countries while I still had no clue what to do in this two week break. Day four of staying home and doing nothing, I decided to gather some friends and go on a day hike to the Glass House Mountains, Mount Ngungun specifically, which I found after a short search on Google.
“HAVE YOU EVER HEARD ABOUT THE FISH LANE FESTIVAL HELD LAST SATURDAY?”
The Annual Fish Lane Festival was held for the 3rd time on Saturday 12 May 2018. The laneway had plenty of entertainment, food, drinks, and local live music, plus, there were so many great photo opportunities.
Hello, everyone! I am Kayan from Hong Kong, currently studying my Bachelor Degree in Creative Industries (major in media and communication). Very happy to say, this is my first blog post! Yeah! I’m one of the new international student bloggers sharing my stories with you this semester, and I hope that you will stay on the journey with me.
Xin Chào everyone! I’m Tram from Vietnam, currently studying a Diploma in Creative Industries at QUT International College. When I came to Australia, I was shocked to see how everything here was so expensive, even a cup of juice could be $7. Then I thought I would try cooking at home, since I rented a room in a shared house with a common kitchen, to save money and eat healthier. So today I want to share some useful tips with you from my six month experience of home cooking (and occasionally eating out)!
Before I started my first semester at QUT, I decided to spend my ‘last hurrah’ with a trip to Sydney which is located east of Australia. This is my second time in Sydney and all I can say it’s a blessing and at the same time a curse. Why? Because the list of things to do is endless!
