Muggle’s Travel Guide to Hogwarts

With the release of the final installment of the movie based on J.K Rowling’s best-selling novels, we have come to an end of a decade long movie franchise that has propelled fictional characters such as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and talented child actors Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint (who played the 3 characters respectively) into mega household... Read More


Manchester United vs Liverpool FC 3-2 (19/09/2010)

Many weeks ago, we told ourselves that if we could get tickets to watch Man Utd Vs Liverpool, we would definitely jump on it and not think twice or we would have to face the dreadful feeling of missing out on something BIG. In all English Premier League matches, we believe that nothing would be even BIGGER than the clash of the Northwest Derby.  Now fast forward a couple of weeks... Read More


West Ham vs Chelsea 1-3 (11/09/2010)

Since we are staying pretty close to West Ham and Upton Park is also one of the football stadiums we had wanted to visit, we went to search online for any available matches and were pretty lucky to be able to secure 2 tickets to watch West Ham United Vs Chelsea.  It is considered a London Derby match so we can expect a certain level of rivalry atmosphere, not to mention the 2 teams... Read More


Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion 1-0 (29/08/2010)

About a week ago, to our surprise, we actually managed to get tickets for the West Bromwich match online. Therefore, instead of watching our first football match at Old Trafford, it’s now going to be at Anfield! haha … We finally have the chance to experience the much hyped about Anfield atmosphere and we reckon that it’s going to be a trashing match so after... Read More

Bye London for now…

no…we are not coming back to Sg. Not yet. The past few weeks since the Egypt trip has been a mad rush for us, due to some unforeseen unfortunate circumstances.  Let’s just say we meet good people but sometimes bad people just comes in your way…whether you like it or not. Thankfully, we have our lucky stars to look out for us as things could have been worse but... Read More


To the Theatre of Dreams @ Old Trafford

One of the main highlights for me to embark on this working holiday, was to see and experience being in the Theatre of Dreams. THE STADIUM where my dad and me spent countless weekends watching matches taking place on TV.  To imagine stepping out onto the pitch, touring the museum and players changing room feels really surreal! With that in mind, we headed off to Manchester,... Read More

From Manchester Piccadilly Station, we took a train further up north to Windermere via Oxenholme Lake District Station. Lake Windermere is the largest natural lake in England.

We were lucky as the weather... Read More
