Setting fire to vacant land

It is the second time on just two days that I have witnessed vacant plots of land being set on fire by uneducated people! Next to my house there is large plot of land that has yet to be developed into houses, surrounding all sides there are houses built. After a few months of living at my new property the grass and trees were very overgrown so I decided to call the council. They said they would send someone round the...

Counterfeit mobile phones, a growing problem in Mauritius!

Counterfeit mobile phones, a growing problem in Mauritius!

Presented with 2 mobile phones, both similar in design, size and branding, it might be difficult to spot the fake from the genuine. This is the dilemma we are in now as more counterfeit products are circulating around and buyers are unaware they are being sold fake goods. My first encounter with a fake product was the time I went to a mobile phone repair shop to get my Samsung phone battery replaced. Just before han...

How To Create Google Account Without SMS Verification?

How To Create Google Account Without SMS Verification?

Well that can be really annoying every-time Google asking for your mobile phone number to verify your account. Some will not like it because of privacy questions and others who don't have a cell-phone (under-developed countries). Google came with this idea to fight spam. If you're in business, only one e-mail account will not suffice and Google will not let you have more than 3 accounts if you gave them your phone nu...

The incompetencies of the Mauritian society

The incompetencies of the Mauritian society

For many, Mauritius is a paradise island and to protect their belief, they will usually overlook the inherent problems in the country to avoid the challenges of the truth. To be patriotic is a good thing but to be ignorant is undoubtedly foolish. When you're released from the mesmerising beautiful beaches and comforting weather, you find yourself in a society full of knaves. Don't let your judgement be impaired by t...

Getting your car serviced at a well known garage

Getting your car serviced at a well known garage

A car which is well looked after will cause you less trouble, therefore it is recommended that you take your vehicle for servicing at regular intervals to avoid nasty surprises. However when I bought my car, the previous owner told me that a check up is due in like 4 months (the yearly maintenance) but I was reluctant to take it to the garage so early after purchasing it. I knew I could get away with it because the c...

TV packages in Mauritius

TV packages in Mauritius

You will find that in Mauritius you get only 3 TV channels as standard with an aerial. Unfortunately only two are watchable, the third channel is really random with football most of the time plus it only broadcasts from mid afternoon. When I moved to Mauritius from the UK, I was stuck on two channels MBC 1 and MBC 2, luckily MBC 1 screens an English film once a week and they have some of the programs from the UK. Her...

Things to avoid for a healthy body

Without a healthy body every aspect of your life will collapse. Health problems are bound to happen. What will follow is depression, limited social interaction, loss of confidence, lack of money, ignorance, being immoral, relationship problems and doing things that will only make you worse. What you consume affects you directly every second of your life. Imagine you drink poison. In less than a minute you're dead! N...

Piercing baby's ears under one

Piercing baby's ears under one

Another age old debate is whether or not you should pierce your baby girl’s ears. If you go on forums you will see people slating mothers that have chosen to do this saying it is child abuse and it's wrong etc. Honestly though, have you ever seen a child under 10 who hasn’t had her ears pierced? People are too quick to judge nowadays and shouldn’t be so mean, too many strangers interfere in other people’s lives, they...
