Hot tip from an expert

At a friend’s engagement just last week, I made friends with one of the blokes. Turns out, he’s a private investigator who works for himself. It’s not a hard job, but long hours (mostly waiting and observing in his car) and peeing into a 1.5L plastic bottle does dull one’s senses after awhile.

We were exchanging views on the more ‘dangerous’ suburbs in West Melbourne as our conversation focused on housing prices and affordable suburbs. I couldn’t quite believe my ears when he mentioned the new suburb of Cairnlea is one of the most ‘dangerous’ suburb to live in right now. Yes, this is the same Cairnlea with the huge sprawling houses, massive plots of land and vibrant community. Most importantly, it’s mostly young couples with a good mix of races and nationalities.

“But,” my new friend said, “that’s exactly what the burglars are into. New homes, with young couples. They strike these homes as the couple mostly works in the day. It’s an easy target.”

I’ve been to Cairnlea. A lot. Many of my friends live there. If anything, I think the suburb is really peaceful and a great place for your kids to grow up in as the demographic is just right. I found it hard to believe my new friend, but coming from an expert’s point of view, I found it hard to reject his opinion as well.

What do you readers think? Any of you live in a new estate/suburb? Hot tips on keeping the house safe?

Temptation Island Australia

Casting for Temptation IslandI’ve always enjoyed a little bit of decadence in my lifestyle, and being a member of Sensual Ball satisfies that little bit of egotism in me. Granted, I don’t partake in any of the sexual cruises or swinging parties that dot their itinerary. But it’s always interesting to find out what the other side of the fence has in stall for the ‘unfortunate’ ones.

Several weeks ago I received an email from Sensual Ball alerting me to the casting of Australia’s version of Temptation Island. I had a good laugh upon looking at the application forms (both singles and couples). I thought they’re really thorough and professional. Well, when you’re messing around with the lives and relationships of people who’re committed to each other, you leave no stone unturned.

Here’re some of the questions:

1) Can you imagine being unfaithful to your partner under any circumstances?

2) Why are members of the opposite sex attracted to you?

3) Why are you a great partner?

Just for chuckles I submitted my application form (for singles). Every reality show needs the obligatory Asian who gets voted out within the first two weeks.

Check it out guys and send in your applications. Who knows you might just end up on TV with me :O

NOTE: Sensual Ball website is not safe for work.

EDIT: Argh I just found out that the deadline for applications falls on the 27th. What a pity.
