Ibrahim’s Review of 2017

Posted Posted in Cambridge, Community, Education, History, London, Media, News, Review, Sport, Tennis

Annual review number nine! Can’t say I’m a novice at this anymore. I can already imagine next year’s review. We’ll be throwing a party. Cakes and balloons. Lots and lots of balloons. And cakes. I like cakes. Especially fresh cream. With a jam filling… But then the balloons burst, and I wake up. The calendar […]

Here we go again. Another annual review. My seventh actually. A great opportunity to reflect on a rollercoaster twelve months. As rollercoaster rides come, this has been quite a thrilling one. Sometimes a thriller doesn’t quite go the way you want it to. We’ve all seen a crazy game of football littered with goals – some may recall Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Newcastle United in […]

Thursday 5th November 2015. The Meridian Grand, London – the luxurious setting for this year’s British Bangladeshi Who’s Who event. After attending the previous two events in 2013 and 2014, I was keen to get involved this time round and see what I could do to assist with from behind the scenes, particularly with the publication.

Thursday 29th October 2015. Destination Manchester. Cambridge to Deansgate… journey time approximately 4.5 hours? Yes, it was VERY long and there was an eleven minute delay leaving from London Euston, which had a knock-on effect for the rest of the journey. Despite that, I arrived at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel on time and looked forward to what was […]

No. I have not become a Manchester City fan. Neither do I support that other club that is within close proximity to them. Don’t even go there. Liverpool FC through and through. Jürgen Klopp – welcome to Anfield! Anyway, this blog post is not about football so let’s move on. Since the Limelight Film Awards took place in June, the last […]

Maa Amar Maa Awards 2014

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Media

Thursday 27th March 2014. A memorable evening in London. I nominated my mother, Shahida Rahman, for an award at the Maa Amar Maa Awards – an awards ceremony created by Pillar Productions to honour British Bangladeshi mothers in the UK across a range of categories. I attended the event with my mother (obviously!), father and sister. We arrived at the […]
