    Man Bags

    what do you think of man bags? my wife bought me one here and ive only used it twice ........we do need them the amount of cr*p we carry in are pockets these days , but whats feeling about them , i would never have on in the uk but probs feel better using them here .........?:embarrassed:
  2. Im sorry but are some people so naive, it's well known you get ripped off in these types of places:no: SINGAPORE - How does one end up paying more than $2,000 for an item that costs only about $900? Filipino client support executive Nicholas Frias, 23, who visited Singapore last month, did. He paid $2,106 for the 64GB iPad 2 with Wi-Fi to a shop in Sim Lim Square. Mr Frias, who arrived in Singapore on June 20, first went to other malls but found that they were sold out He then went to Sim Lim Square around 4pm on June 25. He was, at first, delighted to find out that the 64GB iPad 2 at Mobile Evolution LLP cost $890, before taxes. The same model is priced at $928 at the online Apple Store. The salesman, Eric, then charged Mr Frias another $68 for taxes, and asked $958 for the device. Mr Frias agreed to pay another $28.90 for a warranty which came with a free case and screen protector. Eric then left the shop and returned 10 minutes later with a $1,148 bill that shocked Mr Frias. Apparently, the huge bill was for coverage for two years and the $28.90 quoted was the monthly premium. That added up to a total of $693.60, still $454.40 short of the $1,148 charged. The shop did not state what the additional $454.40 was charged to at that point. They also refused to reduce the warranty period when Mr Frias asked for it. In shock and not wanting to cause any trouble, Mr Frias just signed for it. He ended up paying a total of $2,106.

  9. Hi, PROSPECTIVE MARRIAGE VISA LODGED/ WHAT MAY THE TOURIST VISA REQUIREMENTS BE?) Madly in love with my aus fiance - we met in Scotland (my land)in March 11 and fell pregnant within that month. We lived together for 3 months until we made the decision to move back to Oz to live and raise a family. My fiance had taken a year career break over here and has now moved back to her excellent job in the Australian Government - i plan to join her in a month. It is now September and we have not yet lodged the prospective marriage visa. But when we do in a week, I am hoping we can get a CO asap and advise them of my intention on heading over early for the arrival of our baby. Q1. Does anyone know if you still need to meet the tourist visa criterion i.e $3000 for 3 months and $6000 for 6 months etc or as she has a job with maternity pay, they may waiver the criterion a little due to her income supporting me? I am a chef but there is no work in scotland so we have found the last 4 months hard trying to save for PMV and flights along with bills being executed over here. Thank you for reading my post. Q2? Can you call up and get a CO immediately for a PMV?
  10. The UK's Foreign Office says it is working to secure the release of a kidnapped British tourist whose husband was murdered during a robbery at a luxury Kenyan beach resort favoured by celebrities. The incident happened overnight at the remote Kiwayu Safari Village resort, close to Somalia, where artist Tracey Emin and actress Imelda Staunton have stayed. It is believed the armed gang responsible were from Somalia and may have used a speedboat to get away from the island. A Foreign Office spokesman said: 'We can confirm that two British citizens were attacked overnight at a beach resort north of Lamu, near the Kenya-Somalia border. 'One was killed and another kidnapped. We are working closely with the Kenyan authorities to establish further details.' The spokesman added: 'We are working to secure the safe and swift release of the British national... and ask those involved to show compassion and release (her) immediately.' Officials in Kenya say the couple were attacked on the first night of their stay at the resort, which consists of 18 luxury cottages spread along a private beach. Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere said they had come from a trip to the Masai Mara reserve and were the resort's only guests. A Kenyan security official said a policeman arrived to see six men carrying the woman away. He decided not to shoot in case he hit her. There is speculation the kidnappers could be from an al Qaeda-linked group called al-Shabab that holds much of southern Somalia. Advice posted on the Foreign Office website advises travellers against going within 30 miles of the Kenya-Somalia border. The resort says on its website: 'Kiwayu Safari Village takes your security and safety very seriously. 'We have our own organic security protocols as well as a professional security structure which provides us with overarching security and safety 24 hours a day.'

    Man sued by wife for lack of sex

    It's bad enough when your wife divorces you over a lack of sex and the judge rules you "solely responsible." It's worse when she takes you back to court two years later and garners 10,000 euro in damages. But this apparently happened in—where else?—France, where a man known in court documents as Jean-Louis B. was ordered to pay out around $14,000 to his ex, answering the prayers of dozens of stand-up comedians and talk show monologue writers: The 47-year-old ex-wife then took him back to court demanding 10,000 euros in compensation for "lack of sex over 21 years of marriage". The ex-husband claimed "tiredness and health problems" had prevented him from being more attentive between the sheets. But a judge in the south of France's highest court in Aix-en-Provence ruled: "A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent. The ruling is based on "article 215 of France's civil code, which states married couples must agree to a 'shared communal life,'" which the judge holds includes sex.

    I do not understand English man

    Hi all, I have been daiting an English man for 3 years already. We live in the different country. We met 2 times in 2 years and we will meet again soon. I am the person who flies to see him in the UK (he is responsible for airfare). One thing I am concerned is that he never introduce me to his family. When I asked him about this, he said he would consider it but not confirmed. Then , it led to argument. Normally, what is the meaning in English culture when a man introduces his partner to family. Is it so important? Should I bother it?

  17. Todays announcement that another 8 prisons are to be put up for privatisation has come as a sickening blow to the prison service and its members. HM Prisons, Lindholme, Moorlands, Hatfield, Onley, Coldingley, Durham and Acklington, could be privatised very soon, with the loss of hundreds of prison officers jobs and those that are left, will have to accept a £6 to £8 thousand pound reduction in their wages and loss of most of their pension rights and it is a kick in the teeth for these hard pressed professionals who deal with the most difficult, dangerous and disturbed people in the country. We are not the only professionals who are being savaged, the police, nurses, teachers, bank, government and council workers, plus others, too many to mention are being attacked and i am just at a loss of trying to understand what the government is thinking and how will all this help the country to come out of this 3 year recession we have been in? :mad::no:
