I believe the title of this blog would be more than enough to catch your undivided attention! QUTians are always on the lookout for one exciting adventure or another. Our uni always encourages and supports us to go ahead, carry on and try.  Brisbane CBD ghost tour was one such escapade organized by QUT for students like me who well, were crazy enough to want to undertake a hair-raising experience.

How was it you ask? Mixture of fun, nerve-wracking, spookiness and laughter.  Read more

Devoting Weekends to Study???

Its WEEK 13 and this is when all the assignments are starting to go away one by one. Before this can happen, sometimes we are required to allocate time to study on the weekend. Studying on the weekend at uni is a lot quieter and it gives you a bigger chance to get a computer.

Going to Z block level 4

You just have to make an effort to get out from the house and drag yourself to uni.

The perks of studying at uni on the weekend is that you can drive in and actually find a park. Public transport on the weekend is a pain especially if you live far away from the main street. If you haven’t been out on the weekend using public transport, don’t forget to check translink before you decide to go anywhere.

To survive being at uni on the weekend, don’t forget to treat yourself afterwards! I usually go around the city and treat myself to a yummy dessert at the end of the day. 🙂 How about you? What are you gonna treat yourself with after a long day of studying?

Let’s Paint This City, G20 style.

Color Me Brisbane“, is an interactive light and projection installations that are happening around Brisbane’s CBD. If you haven’t notice these things happening around 6PM at night after you’re heading out of campus, well then, you should. Check out more info here to see what the all the fuss is about and what events are happening.

One thing I thought that was pretty cool was the “Paint your city”. Which basically is that, you go online and register a time slot you want your projection creation to show up. Mine is happening  the 4th of November, 6:34PM across the city! Be there or be square!

Photoblog: Camping at Lamington National Park!

Photos - 1673So recently, a group of friends and I decided to head up to Lamington National Park for a night to camp ‘in the wilderness’! We only went for one night, despite the 100 odd photos that we took. The first photo above was our campsite that we booked at the official booking site. We set up tents and a tarp, and had encounters with wallabies and alpacas! Good trip? I would definitely say so!

Due to the crazy amount of photos that we took, I decided to quickly just choose some of the nicer ones to compile into a short photoblog for the QUT International Students Blog. For those who’ve always wanted to go camping, you are in luck!
