The only drug I know that hangs around for two weeks is marijuana. I've seen thousands and thousands of people go through Harbourfront without incident. Were you stoned? Did you have drugs in your bag? Something doesn't add up. It does happen. You may not notice but they do test randomly. I have a ...

Hi, we're expats living in Singapore and luckily we can get a letter of assurance from our embassy here so we can adopt from Malaysia or Indonesia. Sorry, but you won't be able to adopt from Indonesia (legally) unless you have been living there for at least five years. Even then Australia doesn't l...
