Two weeks ago I travelled to Cyprus for a week-long event known as Challenges Week. My friends and I went along to complete our Duke of Edinburgh International Award by going on a hiking expedition there. All in all, it was an experience I will never forget because so much drama happened and we learnt so much about each other!
During our 3 day hike, I decided to sing songs to pass time and forget about the pain and exhaustion we were going through. For some reason, the song “All About That Bass” came up in my head and stuck, so I decided to make a parody of it based on the whole camping and hiking experience. The lyrics of “All About That Pace” are truly based upon what we all had gone through in the trip. We did actually get lost on our first day and thought it was like hell on Earth, but the Gold Team had an even worse time by getting lost more often than our Silver Group!
This video was premiered on the Challenges Week Assembly at school on 17th of March 2014. It is a compilation of many of the photos taken during the course of the trip. Credits are mentioned in the video.
The full version of the song will be uploaded soon here in my channel. Please give a like, comment and subscribe to my channel for more fun content!
The song “All About That Bass” is owned by Meghan Trainor and her team of producers. In no way am I claiming any of the music material as mine except for my parody lyrics and voice. Please do not report or make claims of copyright infringement as there are many covers and parodies of this song on YouTube.

Yesterday and the two days before yesterday I posted about my little escapade to Antalya, Turkey. I must be the luckiest globe-trotting expatriate in the world that month. Within less than a week after returning from that holiday, I travelled to Cyprus for a week-long expedition trip organised by my school! Luckily for me, I had already written about some my experiences for my school’s newsletter, so why re-invent the wheel right? Here is what we all did back then: Continue reading
Peace be upon y’all!
I know I have seem to gone off the radar for several weeks by now. If you are wondering if it was due to a prolonged illness, it wasn’t truly the case. That time, I wrote that I was suffering from a flu that left me weakened over the week. However, the week after that, I mostly recovered and I was back on my feet as usual. Of course, by then I wanted to write more for this blog, however I really felt that this month has been one of the busiest months I ever went through in my IB course. In this post, I will be giving a rundown of what I do each week nowadays and my plans for the end of this month.
Before going further, allow me to announce something really important: I will be travelling to Turkey tomorrow! Currently I am having a school midterm holiday for five days (this Friday until next week Wednesday) so to make the most of this short period, we decided to spend time in one of Turkey’s most beautiful coastal resort cities: Antalya!
