Why Staff Do Not Take Holidays
Living in Australia is relatively easy when compared to other places. Melbourne is once again voted the most liveable city in the world. There is a culture of “she’ll be right, mate” and “thank God it’s Friday” yet many people tend not to take their annual holidays. Taking a break from work is a time to refresh and perhaps review what’s going on. It is a time for businesses to get on with their business. All good businesses budget holidays for all staff so that an appropriate work/life balance can be maintained. Here we look why staff do not take holidays

The Fruits Of Burma, Mango, Papaya And Co Part 2
If you have a soft spot for tropical and subtropical fruits, Burma is the place to be because here they grow. From A as in ‘Awza thee’ or custard apple, as it is called in English, to Z as in ‘Zee thee’ or plum. But there are not only tropical fruits in Burma. Here you get something for every taste even when allowing for the fact that not everyone likes every fruit and that non-tropical fruits like the apple are here not as tasty and juicy as in the countries they are native to. Grapefruit or shaddock or pomelo is locally called ‘Kyew gaw thee’ but do not be mistaken, although the name pomelo is commonly used for both grapefruit and shaddock there are differences between them what goes for the fruits as well as their origin.
The Fruits Of Burma, Mango, Papaya And Co Part 1
Writing about fruits is similar to writing about e.g. flowers and/or vegetables. I think one cannot confine oneself to describing the fruit, flower or vegetable and some of the respective botanical aspects alone but should whenever it is possible and/or makes sense also address their origins, their trees or plants, the issue of symbolism and the uses they are put to – from the kitchen to the religious shrine to the pharmacy, as it were – as otherwise not only the reading about them might become a bit boring but also because the picture will remain incomplete. If you do not agree please tell me of what use it would be to merely tell you bananas and coconuts are growing in Burma and that bananas are yellow and bend whereas the kernel of the coconut is round to oval and brown? You see what I mean?
