Weather Update

pfff, it was 32 degrees when i left home this morning after an overnight low of 27. apparently it stays like this for the next couple of months. it'll be great to be in freezing melbourne and away from humidity. i now have a summer cold, i think from going from moist, hot air to cold, dry air-conditioning. no drama really except for the fact i'm in a country where it is rude to blow your nose in public. i'm learning the art of the discreet (yet constant) sniff. bugger, such a vile habit.

by the way, i was feeling quite proud of myself for a while, thinking i was learning to blend into my new society. but i learned the other day that there are four distinct and particular steps one must take to open a sliding door correctly. i don't know what they are as i tend to crash through them, but this country may yet refine me.

    Hi there

    Apologies for posting an off topic question here.

    I am inviting your views on ABORTION in order to present a case to help those in the developing world.

    I personally see abortion as a NECESSARY EVIL and that unwanted pregnancy is not only a personal problem and it is also a very real problem for the society at large.

    Do you think it is right to burden say a 15 years old school-going girl with a new life when she is yet to have any economic mean to sustain herself and obviously, most girls of her age are not mentally ready for a family life. Furthermore, is it fair to rob her of her career, aspiration, dream etc., in the name of preserving a life that is yet to be fully developed?
