The semester break is here! I just thought I would share with you all places you could visit or things you could do during the break: Read more
As from my previous blog post, “The Weekend List.”, you all know my love for going to the markets.
Every Saturday, I like going to The Village Markets which are located at the bottom streets of QUT Kelvin Grove Campus. From fruits to flowers to vintage clothing to food, you will never get bored of this market!
Sunday 7th September 2014 – the day I finally had my first comic con experience. I had heard about comic conventions from my friends, the internet and of course Big Bang Theory, but I had never been to one. So when I found out Oz Comic Con was being held in Brisbane, I was super keen to go. Not knowing what to expect, I was amazed by the all the people and the stalls filled with sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and gaming merchandise. Being a small anime fan myself, it was hard to keep my excitement contained, especially around all the cute anime plushies! Also, there were cosplayers strutting their awesome costumes, and completing the comic con experience.
The highlight of my day was the cosplay competition. Despite my extremely limited knowledge of pop culture, I enjoyed seeing all the contestants’ costumes. Some of them even performed little skits to add extra effect. It was also really exciting when I actually recognized the characters they were cosplaying (proud moment ^____^).
Overall, my first comic con was a success. My only regret is not being able to spend more time there (or get to see celebrity guest, Orlando Bloom *sob*). I hope I will be able to continue this comic con adventure later this year at Supernova Brisbane.
Many students have a dream to go abroad and pursue their higher education. For some it may be to experience a new place, culture, meet new people. For others it may be the lure to interact with the brightest and leading experts in their fields of interest.
For me, it was always my goal to study my Masters in a well-renowned university. When it was time for me to decide, I chose Brisbane and QUT. What were the factors that enabled me to take that decision?
All universities and schools have their random quirks and findings that you will only find it in those Universities. An example would be a talking painting you can find at Hogwarts. Well, all of you must be thinking, “Huda, that’s a fictional place you silly!”.Well yes, I know that (Sorry Potter Fans!)
Anyways, here is a list of random things that I have found at both QUT campuses (Gardens Point & Kelvin Grove) that are unique. Let’s see if you can find them:
When I first came to Brisbane, to say that I was clueless was putting it very lightly, very very lightly.
