Question by roset: How much would you normally pay for a vacation for one person: Sydney – Macau – Singapore – Sydney?
Any travel enthusiasts, travel professionals out there….
i need to know if $ 4,500 per person is a good deal. Its inclusive of taxes and flights and 2 5-star hotels with 3nights each, total of 6 nights with breakfast and 2 tours and 3-hour spa treat, entry to “ZA IA” (show), airport transfers, and a river cruise. Thanks!!!
Answer by YEAH BASTIN!!!
WOW! Only $ 4500? That’s a pretty good bargain if you ask me! That return flight would be around $ 5000 (lower), but $ 4500 means you struck a pretty good deal! Congratulations, and about the extras too.. (drool) – if you change your mind, you know where I am, right? (jokes!)
Good on ya!

Question by : Why won’t his ex-girlfriend just go away?
My partner has a lot of contact with his ex even though they split up 3 years ago and he’s been with me for a year. He told me their relationship was a nightmare and she caused him a lot of stress. Yet they still phone each other regularly and he’s always rescuing her – fixing broken cupboards or lending her money. He phoned her while we were on holiday to ask her to collect his mail. Yesterday I went over there and there’s some new furniture in his house – turns out it’s hers and he’s storing it for her. I haven’t said anything but I feel really disrespected. Is he out of line??
Answer by AYe Friend
He’s out of line definitely…sounds to me like you’re in a 3 person relationship there, and who wants that! Sounds to me like his ex doesn’t want him, but likes to think that he still wants her (even though he’s with you) maybe she’s on an ego trip. Either way it’s not healthy for them to be so close when he’s supposed to be in a relationship with you.
Look deep into yourself, and ask yourself if you deserve this? Is this what I want from a boyfriend?
If the answer is “I do not deserve this, and I do expect to be treated with more respect” then tell him to choose. If he doesn’t want to give up his “friendship” with his ex…Dump the toad, because that boy still has feelings for her and his ex knows it!
I’m giving you this advice based on my own experience, I was with a girl who was in constant contact with her ex, i came to realise that i was disrespecting myself by letting her disrespect me.
I ended it and am now in a loving 2 person relationship.

In some of the hardest hit markets around the country, homeowners have discovered a creative new way to sell their homes through online house exchanges.
House swapping originally developed as an affordable vacation option, wherein homeowners from different places would get together and swap their homes for a short period of time. This helped both parties reduce their vacation costs, and gave both an insider’s view of another community.
The practice of house swapping grew to be quite popular in the 70s, and is rising today in a new form. Permanent house swapping is based on the same idea (homeowners switch places), but in this case, each owner buys the other person’s home.
So why are property exchanges becoming popular today? Many U.S. markets are seeing an influx of inventory but not a lot of demand, which makes it very difficult to sell. In addition, the economic downturn has resulted in large numbers of job loss, leaving homeowners struggling to make their mortgage payments.
Those with rising financial pressures are motivated to sell quickly, so they often lower their asking price, and work with a real estate agent. Because times are tough right now, permanent house swapping is a trend that’s gaining momentum because it brings together motivated buyers and sellers.
To find prospective swappers, homeowners join one of the many websites dedicated to real estate matchmaking. Sites like OnlineHouseTrading.com, DomuSwap.com, GoSwap.com, and even Craigslist.com allow owners to post an advertisement of their property and specify what they’re looking for in return. Some sites are free to use, while others charge fees to access full listing details.
Many of the swapping sites also feature posts from international users, for people who want to look for a home outside American borders.
People who are trying to sell their home on their own, as well as those working with a realtor, are feeling hopeful about online house swapping as a new marketing arena. Hard numbers aren’t available yet to tell us how many successful exchanges have occurred, but hundreds of people are joining these sites each month. Of course, the more members each site has, the more potential buyers there are. This increases your chances of having a successful home exchange.
One caveat involved with house swapping is the fact that each party must be willing to live in the other person’s area. Matching location, price, and property needs can be difficult, especially if either party has a family that’s moving in tow. Another thing to keep in mind is that house exchanges aren’t straight tradessome houses simply cost more than others, regardless of whether the property’s up for trade or not.
Each homeowner officially sells the house to the other, which means that all the standard paperwork, home inspections, closing costs, and financing issues are the same as in any other real estate transaction. This is why it’s still important to have a real estate agent working with you. He or she can take care of the details of the sale, advertise your home using these swap sites, and market the home using other venues.

Question by almarj70: I’ve been invited to a Christmas cookie party?
I have befriended an American mum at my sons Playgroup and she is hosting this party early next month . From what she has told me everybody makes and swaps christmas cookies (she was kind of vague on the details and I haven’t actually received an invitation) and she has also told me that parties are popular in the USA. I have never been to a party like this but I LOVE baking and it sounds kind of cool. Can any of you answerers from the USA give me an idea of what I’m in for?
Answer by Jane
She should contact you and tell you how many people are attending. Bake one kind of cookie, a dozen for EACH person attending. Package each dozen of your cookies in individual packages (festive counts!). The others attending will bring a dozen for EACH person attending and you will go home with X dozen cookies baked by the others.
Bring extras to pass and taste. Wine is usually served and festivities abound.
