Through volunteering I met this wonderful lady who supported me massively throughout my time there. I left the role last summer. After sending her Easter greetings I was informed today that she had passed away over a month ago. This was such a shock, she was a lovely woman who treated me with kindness and encouraged me greatly to achieve what I want to in my studies and in life. Every week, I looked forward to serving drinks and sandwiches and having a chat with her. I keep remembering things that she used to ask me to do, including untangling her headphones :). This news has been upsetting to me, but I hope she is well. I am so thankful for having had a chance to meet and befriend her in these past 3 years of my life.

James Blunt @ O2 Apollo Manchester ~ 18th April 2014


I became a fan of James Blunt when I first saw him on Top of the Pops singing “You’re Beautiful” (which was a long long time ago, when I was 10?). So I was really really excited to go and see him on his Moon Landing tour.

The support act was “Shake Shake Go”. I’d never heard of them before but they were rather good! Especially the drummer! The singer had one of those unique voices.

The space concept of the concert was so cool. James and his band came out in flight costumes ^^ The visuals at the back were great!

There was quite a lot of interaction between James and the audience. Didn’t know how funny he was! One highlight was James counting to 10 in cantonese haha. Quite amazing.

He sang a couple of his classics including “You’re Beautiful” and “Goodbye my Lover”. So wonderful to hear those sang live. 😀 And also some of my favourites including “Carry You Home” and “So Far Gone”. The songs he played on the piano were beautiful…
