Crazy India

INDIA | Wednesday, 15 Aug 2012 | Views [637]

India is one country which has always been on my list of countries ‘not to visit’. Reason due to  hearing about the horror stories of extreme food poisoning, the poverty, beggars, pollution, crowds and the 1001 parasites which infest your ... Read more >


Goodbye Mum!

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 31 May 2012 | Views [465]

All that glitters is not Gold.

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 23 Mar 2012 | Views [791]

I want nobody nobody but you! [clap clap] I want nobody but you! [clap clap]

PHILIPPINES | Monday, 19 Dec 2011 | Views [746] | Video

When the all-girl Korean band Wondergirls released there soon-to-be pop classic Nobody in 2009, somehow I doubt they’d envisage it would become a pole dancing anthem. Just like marvelling at the Borobudur Temples in Java, watching the ... Read more >
