My Castle On The Hill

Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on the Hill” was a nostalgic look back at his childhood. His concert, for me, brought up emotions of the first ever concert I attended at the age of 13. It was in Kuala Lumpur and a part of the My World Tour. If you haven’t guessed it, the first artist I…

Go with the Tide

In a world where modern journalism has overtaken the art of old-fashioned newspaper writing, the BRATs Young Journalists Programme managed to incorporate both into their recent camp at Resorts World Langkawi.
