Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace Scrubb where they meet up with King Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship, The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragon, dwarfs and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.
There were some good moments and some bad ones, but this film was definitely more entertaining than Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The CGI and cinematography were rather disappointing. Still prefer The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
After many months of hard work and some fun in between, I'm pleased to tell you that I've completed my postgraduate degree with flying colours. The journey certainly hadn't been plain sailing, but it was an interesting, joyful and memorable one nevertheless. I've no regrets.
Pursuing my postgraduate degree was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. Being a full–time sponsored student again had its ups and downs, but I wouldn't have traded it for anything. I've gained invaluable knowledge from my former lecturers and peers and hope I've grown academically as well as professionally. The bonds and seeds of friendships were forged and sown for life.
Would I do it again some time in the future? Only time will tell, but never say never, they say. So, what's next? Working abroad, God willing. Wish me luck!
In this seventh and final instalment of the beloved Harry Potter series, Harry faces new troubles; he must collect all of the Horcruxes that the evil Lord Voldemort has left behind. He has no idea where these are and he has to destroy them all, even without the faintest idea how to do so.
Another letdown. Look forward to the Battle of Hogwarts in the final instalment next year.

Sweet treats from Ladurée
Ladurée macarons from Paris
For the uninitiated, Ladurée is a renowned luxury cake and pastry shop with boutique shops in Paris, Beirut, Dublin, Geneva, Lausanne, London, Milan, Monaco, Nagoya, Tokyo and Zurich. It is known as the inventor of the double–decker macaron – 15,000 of which are sold daily. Ladurée is said to be the best macaron shop in the world.
The history of Parisian tea salons is intimately tied to the history of the Ladurée family. It began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from France’s southwest, opened a bakery at 16 rue Royale in Paris.
