  • South Park – Steve Irving

    Part of this video was shown on the National TV channels here in Australia. It was too “shocking” to show the entire clip. It off course concerns the tragic death of Steve “Crocodile Hunter” Irving. He is only a few weeks gone from the mortal coil and already South Park are making fun of him. […]

  • Seongan-dong

    Seongan-dong in Winter: In Ulsan, the winter is very different to Melbourne. There is rarely any rain. When you look out the window it looks like the middle of the summer with a bright blue sky. As soon as you go outside that impression is erased by the cold and dry air. I actually prefer […]

The bad guys (cyclons) are Monotheists, so they are like Christians, Jews and Muslims in that they believe […]

  • New Car

    Come the 14th I shall be the proud owner of a new old car. I am buying it from my brother for $600. The car is a 1986 Mitsubishi Colt sedan

  • My old apartment

    My old apartment in Yaeum-dong, Ulsan. It’s a little messy because I was in the process of moving out. As you can see it is quite spacious even with a single bed, sofa, large office desk, draws, clothes hanger and TV. What you can’t see is a small combined bathroom / toilet, an enclosed balcony […]
