Best of Blogging Awards 2006

BTW, the guys over at ClearAdmit nominated me for their Best of Blogging Award (thanks, guys :-) Congratulations to Death Spiral and Olivier, my two fellow INSEAD bloggers who got nominated as well!

If I understand the process correctly, all nominated bloggers are now asked to hand in their vote by April 21 to elect the winner. So, if you are one of them, dear reader, I would really appreciate your vote :-)

May the best blogger win!


Family visit

Last week, my parents and my brother came to visit me here in Fontainebleau. It was very good to see them again, and I think they also enjoyed all the sightseeing we were able to cram into one weekend. I used to the opportunity to finally visit the Château de Fontainebleau myself as well, and I must admit it really is a shame I hadn’t been there earlier. I was most impressed by the beautiful park that surrounds it and look forward spending more time there in the summer. It’s just a short stroll away from the INSEAD campus, so I really have no excuse to not go more often.

Student Council

Just returned from a short trip to Munich and found out that I have been elected to the Student Council. Well, not really “elected”, since my team was the only one running, but it still feels good to know that we made it. The INSEAD Student Council for 2006 consists of Gavin (President), Joao (Treasurer), Shauna (External), Franck (Singapore Liaison), Gayathri (Internal Affairs) and myself (Internal). Looking forward to working together with you guys!

On another note, I finally decided to go to Singapore in P4 – September and October – instead of P3 as originally planned, which means I am currently looking for a place to stay in Fontainebleau for May and June – I have to move out of my current room by the end of the month. If you know of any available room, please let me know.
