My geeky attempt to write a computer program which represents true love

It's 2am on a Wednesday morning and in 5 hours I need to go to work. I'm struggling to sleep - I'm probably lovesick! I'm singing heartbroken songs silently in my head and thinking about the C# codes I need to write for the project I'm working on at work. Then I start mixing the two and start thinking if I were to represent true love in code, what would it look like. Here's what I end up with: I've put a lock on t...

NHDC houses are an illusion to give hope to poor families that they can become a home owner too

NHDC houses are an illusion to give hope to poor families that they can become a home owner too

The truth is land has become so precious in Mauritius nowadays and they are meant for more rewarding projects (IRS & RES schemes etc) than to provide shelter to those in need. How to apply to the NHDC to be considered for a house You first need to meet two criteria: You or your partner do not currently own a house or a piece of residential land You have a 10% deposit for the house Next you need the follow...

The Process of Buying and Selling a Car in Mauritius

The Process of Buying and Selling a Car in Mauritius

When I relocated to Mauritius in November 2011, I needed a car to get around but I didn’t know what the procedures were for me as the buyer. Fortunately the person who sold the car to me was a nice man and he explained everything to me. Two years later, I was in the shoes of the seller and I didn’t have a clue what papers were required for the sale but eventually I learned it all. So this post is to help future buyer...

Fizi Kapsil, the making of!

Fizi Kapsil, the making of!

When I was a kid and videos games were not so popular, we used to have so much fun playing Fizi Kapsil/Fusil Capsile (Capsule Gun). Nowadays these old games are disappearing as more children get stuck to their computers but if parents can pass these on, we may have more kids playing outside. It can be good for bonding between parent and child too as there's a bit of DIY involved which is going to allow both to spend ...

Le Val Nature Park Review

Le Val Nature Park Review

Now that we are entering the summer months, the days are getting longer and the weather warmer, the perfect combination for a day out with the family. So this week I went to Le Val Nature Park found in Cluny in the South of the island of Mauritius. Photos from the park (Click on the thumbnails to see a bigger version of the photos) Finding it wasn't very easy as we took a back entrance through a private road; man...

True cost of living in Mauritius

True cost of living in Mauritius

Before I relocated to Mauritius, I wanted to have an idea about how much things cost so that I could plan my move better. However the information available on the Internet was not accurate and up to date. Now that I've been living here for nearly 2 years, I'm in a better position to talk about this. Eating out You've got a lot of choice when it comes to eating out but I'd advise not to eat off the streets for the...

The best Pre-Primary schools and Nursery of the island

The best Pre-Primary schools and Nursery of the island

When the moment comes to send your child to school for the first time, it is not something a parent can take lightly. A lot of research goes into this and it is not always easy to choose which one is the best. My daughter is 2 and half years old and she’s getting really bored at home. Although it’s a full time job in itself to look after her and it would be ideal to use a good amount of that time towards our job, we ...

The nasty gecko and the dishonest electrician

The nasty gecko and the dishonest electrician

I woke up on a Wednesday morning and as always, I pushed the power button on my remote to switch on the TV but it wouldn’t turn on. I thought I didn’t plug the TV in but after checking all the cables and trying to manually switch it on from the appliance itself, I concluded it was an internal problem. So I looked for all information and solutions I could gather on the Internet to fix it but none worked. As I’m a bit...

To lead without a title? No, to do good deeds without expectation is better

To lead without a title? No, to do good deeds without expectation is better

I listened to Robin Sharma's speech yesterday and thought I'd share my opinion with you all... During his opening speech, he mentioned the fact he is now a Mauritian just like us and I thought it was cheesy to say something like this. Citizenship is one thing but to become a true citizen, you need to embrace the culture, the tradition and values of the country. You should feel it in your heart and when that happen...

Fake MAC cosmetics gaining popularity in Mauritius

Fake MAC cosmetics gaining popularity in Mauritius

For a while now I have seen people selling MAC make up online here in Mauritius, but as far as I am aware of, it's not available here so how come many people boast that what they have is real? Well let me tell you, most MAC cosmetics sold in Mauritius are dupes/replicas so are FAKE. So many people are buying from groups and Facebook pages but I cannot understand how people can be so naive, MAC is very expensive but i...
