OFFICE PINBOARD Eleanor: "I've just come back from holiday in Morocco. Whenever I go away, I try to keep a travel journal, or even just notes on the things that have inspired me. In my case, this is usually the foods and the colours. It is something I always encourage my students to do when they are visiting somewhere new. Not only is this a great way to practice descriptive writing but travel scrapbooks are a wonderful record of memories for the future. I still have some of the books I wrot…

OFFICE PINBOARD: Yolanda: “Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! There are many stories and legends on the origin of Valentine’s Day; does it come from the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia? Was St. Valentine a priest who performed secret marriages? Was Valentine a prisoner who fell in love with his captors daughter? We may never know, but I hope that all your friends and family share the love today! To commemorate, I wanted to share the most famous line from possibly the first 'love' poem eve…

As the buildings close, released autonomous feet patte…

OFFICE PINBOARD: Helen: "Hong Kong at Chinese New Year is a very exciting place to be! Dragon dances, delicious food and lanterns everywhere.
