    Melbourne Taxis

    i can tell you MANY stories about bad cabbies!!!! A friends sister go picked up from williams town to goto the airport...taxi driver did know how to get to the airport! I had a taxi to Fed Square and the taxi driver didnt know where Fed Square was! (we got out of the taxi!) Another taxi from Port Melbourne to Albert Park, again driver didnt knwo where he was going (only about 3-4 kms) got near where we wanted to go and got out and refused to pay as we had to give directions all the way (well, 2 streets!) I am glad i have moved out of the CBD to geelong surf coast, taxi drivers know there way about down here

    Child modelling agents melbourne/geelong area

    he did a photoshoot for a push-a-long/sit on toy. they wanted him to push it but he would only sit on it (lol...bloody typical lol) I think it was for target, so we are waiting for the catalog to come out fingers crossed he will get some more work but it he doesnt it doesnt bother us, its just abit of fun and it will be something nice for him to look back at when he grows up
