    Thank you for visiting my blog.
    Yes the owner of the “alleged hot car stuff” mentioned in the news recently is indeed a neighbour but I do not wish to comment on the matter as this is a very delicate and sensitive issue that is best left to those concerned. However, those who know him personally are, of course, shocked and find the allegations hard to believe as we are talking here about a person whose family are well-known, prominent and hardworking as well as being very down to earth.

  6. Yay! 3 years... Congratulations Maam Marilou and Happy Anniversary, Talbuks Cafe!!!

  7. Shai - Thank you for your support.
