The words "Pot", "Black" and "Kettle" come to mind and not necessarily in that order. An Ozzy saying "THEY'VE just got lots of attitude."

Lahs and lehs botehring you so much that you need to escape? Sheesh . . . you need to reassess your priorities.

This site would be a damn sight less interesting without input from the locals. Imagine only having bored Aussie expat wives writing their drivel here . . . :wink:

Is that supposed to be a bad thing? Are only Ang Mohs considered expats? :o


Some people most probably assume that.

Others assume that expats are only those who are on very lucrative compensation packages.

Outdoors, jogging, in CS or inside a private car, Ang Mohs are expats. Any other situation, tourists.
