We talked, she has the same ambition as me about growing our own businesses. Her goals is to retire at $2M.

Mum is 54, and already she start losing her memory, she keeps asking the same question and forgetting the things she placed around the house such as the house keys.

For sale

Tuning up my bike, its been rusting in the garage since the day I went to Melbourne on assignment. I'm going to sell BettyBlue - another piece of my former lifestyle.

The money will secure her trip to Vietnam and the wedding dresses.

She loves me, she loves me not

I fear that she will not be a good hostress towards all my friends, because she study them in fine details. Where as I'm more liberal.

Maybe its for a good reason - she got what I lack.

I need her to balance my life.

National ID Card Australia

I worship the Corporation, the new religion. At home I worship the missus.

Integration Specialist/Consultant - In short, I'm a driver for best practices, standards and integration business processes for enterprise, global companies and Government agencies who are implementing integration projects. Like an engineer builing bridges between two or more landmarks, but in a business context.

I get paid to untangle the web of business processes and optimise business workflow performance. Sometimes exposing certain people to redundancy during the process.

Fellow friends-who-works-for-Government-agency, be prepare to become redundant! On the bright side, if you're good at what you do then you probably be transfer to a more challenging department. You'll be safe there until the next wave of technology.

It had started - post Sept 11, the Health Inssurance Commission (now Medicare Australia), NSW Police, Department of Immigration and Citizenship, along with many other Government agencies are in the process of integrating their information systems. Welcome to the New World Order, the National ID Card.

Be prepare to be tag, monitor, and probe. Don't worry, it's painless.

The first generation of this technology (RFID) is being used in PayPass.

Department of Justice

I get good thrill out of challenging against the Australian legal system. 1 out of 10 times I get my infringement notice dismissed and my fine refunded. Sweeet...
