Experienced my first Asian Wedding, thanks to the Manzoor family for being such awesome hosts!

Ate out in a few pretty awesome places the last few months. I really recommend Souk Medina, I’ve been there several times recently. It’s definitely one of my favourite restaurants in London and probably the best Moroccan themed restaurant I’ve visited.

Rode the so called ‘Boris Bikes’, they’re actually not half as bad as you might think! Very handy if you want to travel through central London, cheaper and much more pleasant than the Tube/Bus network on a hot summers day.

Saw a sidesplittingly funny film, In the Loop is a political satire based around the sexed up dossier scandal that preceded the Iraq war. A must see.

Since my last post the weather has taken a turn for the worse, as a result I’ve been to the Cinema quite a bit in the last few months! Highlights have to be Bridesmaids and also The Adjustment Bureau, both of which were brilliant for entirely different reasons.

I applied to do a one week course to learn some new lab techniques in Heidelberg which runs in October and got on it! I can’t wait to get back in the lab and also to see a new city!

Popped out with my camera to take even more photos, still have a massive amount on my computer that I need to upload.

Watched a fair bit of television the last few weeks. Although I can’t understand why there is so much good television in the summer? Surely a better time is during the winter when the days are colder & shorter and people spend more time indoors? Anyway due to the awful weather I’ve been able to enjoy the brilliant television. I’ve really enjoyed The Apprentice this year and it was really nice to see the nice guy win for a change! The second series of Luther has been amazing. If you missed it you have to get the DVD. I just really hope they make a third series.

Formula 1 has been brilliant recently. The Canadian GP has to go down as one of the best races I’ve seen for a long time. Spectacular!

I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had time to write here, apologies for that. I also haven’t had any time to do my Radio Show. Again apologies but I will be back doing my show again in the near future, and hopefully will have some better jingles and beds! In the meantime you can click here to listen to an on demand podcast of the last show (iTunes/Windows Media/Real Player).

As I’m sure you’ve all noticed the weather these last few weeks has been absolutely awesome, as a result I have spent much of my time out and about!

Started my radio show, think it’s going fairly well. Clique Wednesdays are LIVE 9-11PM GMT bi-weekly on ICRadio!

I’ve had the chance to go out a few times and enjoy the sunny weather. The other week I was chilling out in Regent’s Park with a few friends and we decided to try a little boating! Was quite fun, especially watching them go round in circles while they tried to row - thankfully I did slightly better!

Due to the weather I haven’t been to the cinema lately, who would? I did watch Remember Me the other day though. Can’t tell you too much without ruining the movie, but watch it you wont regret it!

Had a pretty awesome night out for an old friend’s 23rd, cue massive nostalgia. I just wish I could remember a little more of it!

Went out the other week to the first gig I have been to in about 4 years. To give you some idea the last one I went to was Muse Headlining Wembley Stadium on March 18th 2007! But the other week I saw Shugo Tokumaru playing live at Cafe OTO in Dalston and it really made me realise what I’ve been missing. What made the night even better was after the show I got him to sign a copy of his album!

Managed to pop out with my camera to take even more photos, should have time to upload some more soon!

Downloaded the latest Cold War Kids album Mine is Yours. If you haven’t listened to it, I’d really recommend you give it a listen on Spotify or download it from iTunes!

Saw a few of my old friends from Uni and went ice skating which is always good fun. Next month we’re planning to go Karting, should be even better!

Watching the third series of Engrenages (Spiral) on BBC Four. France’s answer to the Spooks (UK) or 24 (US) with a bit of the grittiness of The Wire thrown in for good measure. If you speak French definitely check it out, if not you still should as it’s fully subtitled and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it! All 8 episodes in the series are free to watch here on demand!

Was sad to realise I was watching the last ever episode of Waking the Dead earlier this month. Another truly great drama on the BBC is no more.

PSN has been down for over a week now. That’s two bank holiday weekends that I haven’t been able to partake in a single hour of online gaming, but thankfully the weather has been great so I haven’t really needed to!

Sport hasn’t been going too well for a Chelsea fan lately, although at least I did manage to see Torres score his first goal for us last week!

I have seen some awesome films at the cinema the past few months and also a fair few at home. Martyrs was recommended to me and it really was incredible, it’s not one for the faint hearted though!

I’ve had some pretty awesome nights out, at some pretty awesome haunts. One was a tiny speakeasy in Chelsea which just so happened to be entertaining Princes Harry and William the night I was there, well they do serve cocktails in Top Hats!

I finally managed to pop out with my camera to take some photos, should have time to upload some more soon!

Dreams - Since I’ve been having a fair few lately I’m keeping a dream diary on and off. It’s quite interesting to look back on them!

After a few hiccups think I’m finally ready to start that exciting thing I said was coming in spring 2011. Watch this space!

Food - Also found some pretty awesome places to eat out. Including, Cattle Grid - Balham, The Ladbroke Arms - Notting Hill, and Sartori - Covent Garden.

Cricket - Pretty horrible having to watch England in the cricket world cup, especially after such a convincing Ashes victory.

Of all the photographs I shot in 2010 this is my favourite.

If anybody doubts the value of the Oscars then take note. I wouldn’t have watched this film in the cinema if it hadn’t been so critically acclaimed, and that truly would have been a tragedy!
