At the age of 17, I put 3 London universities on my application form out of the 5 choices. And it turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. As a curious human being who loves to explore the world around, studying at a university in London means 3 years of visiting and discovering the unknown.
Yes hi there, I’m Ash! Born and raised in Hong Kong, now studying Geography at a university in London. As a geographer and explorer, I’ve always loved to discover new things: a new café around the corner, or maybe just casually walking around a neighbourhood that I’ve never been to.
In a city like London with all the cultural diversity, there are lots to see. I’ve been travelling with my family as a toddler, and perhaps that’s why I love to explore different places and cultures. Now that I’m on my own, I’m still living that travelling spirit! Since I have more free time in uni now, I’ve been exploring the city that I live in, and also the rest of the UK.
Of course my journey doesn’t stop even when I go back to Hong Kong for holidays! Apart from spending time with my family and friends, I keep exploring new places to visit in town, and that includes eating authentic cuisine and checking out the hippest things to do.
How did Delicacy of a Unicorn come about? Well, I’ve been keeping a personal blog to myself, which I used as something like a personal diary. But I decided to properly blog about my ‘new-Londoner’ experience in October 2014, since I just thought it would be nice to share my experience and perspective with the world. This blog has become so much more since then. As I travelled more, I have more experience that I would like to talk about, more thoughts in my brain that I want to rant about. At the beginning I imagined this to be a travel guide sort of thing, but now it really has become something with a more personal touch. Which I think is going well!
With lots of love,
