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...

The CWA should fix leakages faster to avoid unnecessary waste of water

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed my water meter was leaking and after investigating the problem, I realised the guy who came to read the meter 2 days ago has caused some damage to it. It was six o’clock on a Wednesday evening when I decided to call the CWA hotline (170) to report the problem so they can fix it as soon as possible. The agent I spoke to asked whether the damage was before or after the meter and I wo...

Taking your car for a fitness test at the Vehicle Inspection Centre

Sometimes you forget important things and that’s what happened with my car which was meant to go for a fitness test this year. The laws in Mauritius state that a vehicle needs to go for its first fitness test after 7 years from first registration (for imported cars, it will be the date it was originally registered in that respective country), otherwise you will be get a fine of Rs500 for using a vehicle without a val...

Rip Off Mauritius

I've been wanting to express my sheer disgust at the immoral people in Mauritius who rip you off at every opportunity they get but I didn't have time to write about this until now. The title of this post has been borrowed as it reminded me of a TV show I used to watch in England called "Rip Off Britain" where companies and individuals who are exploiting consumers are exposed. Let me walk you through my experiences f...

Collecting your items from the main Parcel Office when you buy from abroad

Many people have found it’s actually cheaper to buy a lot of things over the Internet and get it shipped to Mauritius or that they are able to get their hands on stuff which is not available in our country. Whatever the reason you may have to shop online, you will most likely have to go to the Parcel Office in Port-Louis. How to get there Everyone knows Caudan (if you don't, you need to get out more!) and after K...

Beware of unexpected bank overdrawn fees on your credit card

Beware of unexpected bank overdrawn fees on your credit card

For many people, a credit card allows them to purchase things for which they don’t have the money yet. It could be items which are absolutely necessary for them or just stuff they’d like to keep them happy. I use mine differently though and the only reason I got the credit card in the first place is because I needed one to be able to make purchases on the internet. While most people will usually settle their bill at...

Oral test guide for learner drivers in Mauritius

Oral test guide for learner drivers in Mauritius

To obtain a driving licence in Mauritius, you have to pass 2 tests – a theory and a practical one. The theory part is most commonly referred to as the oral test because it used to be conducted as an oral examination. People who do not understand English or French usually take the actual oral version of the test which involves an examiner reading the questions and answers out loud in Creole. However most learner drive...

Crocodile Park review

A few days ago I decided to go to La Vanille Réserve des Mascareignes also known simply as Crocodile Park. The last time I went was eight years ago and since then I’m older and more mature with an interest in animals and plants, I decided to go back again with my young daughter. Crocodile Park is situated in the south of the island in Rivière des Anguilles and although there are directions on their website which is c...
