Unemployment Rates

The Western world has been hit very badly by the global economic crisis with many people retrenched and laid off. Now, people are prepared to take on any kind of job, as long as they can have a job. Even jobs such as material handling which were not popular in the past have become high in demand today as the unemployment rate increases. I wonder when this crisis will end.

Condo Living

One good thing about moving into a condo is that I no longer need to worry about fence installation or grilles. It does save some money and I have better peace of mind when it comes to our security. With the security situation out there, I would prefer to stay in a condo over a house anytime.

Investing in Watches

Do you think watches are a good investment? I have an uncle who collected all kinds of expensive watches from Rolex watches to Blancpain watches because he learnt that their value will actually appreciate over time and will make a good investment. I think it can be a pretty expensive hobby though!

Australian Cinemas

When I was a student in Australia, I used to love going to the Village and Hoyts cinemas there. The Berkline seats were really comfortable to sit in. I even managed to survive a movie marathon in them complete with blankets and pillows! Sigh I really do miss my crazy student days!
