Ibrahim reflects on a year of challenge and uncertainty.
Welcome to my tenth annual review. 2018… it’s been a year filled with some truly memorable moments. As always, let’s rewind the clock and review some of my personal highlights of the year.
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 […]
Technology. It’s a wonderful thing. A source of fascination to me since childhood. Well, since my nursery school days to be precise. Two decades later, I’m using digital media to engage and interact with emerging young talent. So, how did it all start? As an energetic and inquisitive three-year-old, I was totally in awe of […]
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 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 […]
Yes, this event was ages ago. But since many of you have been engrossed by the “election fever”, I don’t think it’s too late to share my latest blog post with you all. Anyway, let’s wind the clock back… Wednesday 11th March 2015. I attended the inaugural British Bangladeshi Business Awards at the New Bingley Hall in Birmingham. […]
The last few weeks have been pretty exciting, particularly if you are a fan of the Bangladesh cricket team! Australia went on to win the ICC Cricket World Cup, but Bangladesh made history by reaching the quarter-finals for the first time. It was a memorable tournament for the Tigers! Earlier this month, I travelled alone to Birmingham. Believe me, […]
It’s that time of year again. The time when I turn around 180 degrees clockwise or anti-clockwise and immerse myself with flashbacks. Whoa, that was bright! Oh, that was just me being dazzled by a car’s headlights. How can I be looking at a car’s headlights when I am supposed to be looking at my computer and focusing […]
