    How to hook up like a pro

    Friday, September 19, 2014

    Gentlemen, I give you the ultimate guide to getting laid. Step 1: Kissing To be approached with gentleness, tenderness and subtlety. You are not Cthulhu at a seafood buffet. A woman’s face should never be covered in slime after you have attacked her and she should not look horrified when you come up for air. Don’t [...]

    Dear Aunty Em

    Thursday, September 18, 2014

    ‘Trust is an important thing for my girlfriend and I, and we both have friends of the opposite sex. I’m perfectly cool for her to hang out with her guy friends (even on a one on one setting). However, I’ve noticed a few of my female friends have been telling me they no longer want [...]

    Steamy Singapore

    Tuesday, September 16, 2014

    It’s Autumn and Singaporeans are psyched about the mild weather. If it wasn’t so illegal here, I would assume they were on crack. It’s definitely, definitely hot.

    Psychics

    Sunday, September 14, 2014

    I confess to having a bit of a penchant for them. It all started when I was supposed to interview a clairvoyant for ABC Newcastle. I toddled along cluelessly with my recording equipment and the full intention of coming away with a story but I ended up having a reading wherein I was warned against [...]

    Play your cards right

    Thursday, September 11, 2014

    Think ‘glamour and travel’ and what comes to mind? Exotic locations, luxurious accommodation, bright lights, high rollers and a touch of razzmatazz: all of the above right? – You’re welcome to throw in one or two suggestions of your own if you’re keen to add ‘audience participation’ to the party.

I have been to Bangkok quite a few times and, every time I come back, I am struck by its increasing sophistication. That’s not to say it’s losing its soul. It’s still very much Thailand. [...]

I was speaking to one of my dear friends last night and she was joking about how she’d just made a chicken nugget pizza and was sitting on the couch drinking Champagne. She mentioned that she’s sick of doing this stuff alone. That really struck a chord in me. I have been criticised for pursuing love [...]

You don’t have to be the best

You don’t have to be special or different or interesting. You don’t have to be a high achiever or do anything even remotely impressive. Everywhere you go, everywhere you look, the world is urging you to succeed. To follow your dreams. To be more, have more, do more. Guess what? You don’t have to. There is [...]
