    To all of the descendants of convicts, and us descendants of pioneers; Aussies, who helped build and shape this Great Southern Land Oz.

    I wish you a Happy Birthday. Today is our day.


    I know the day has been hijack by political correctness, so un Australian, and Newcomers who so want to be like us. But it is still our day.

    To all the newcomers, who are not descents of convicts, and Pioneers. Welcome and enjoy our day with us.

    God save the Queen.

    Happy Birthday Mate.

    Dear Australia,

    Hope you're doing well. I have been a lonely slut in Dubai, passed on by different men to another who had no idea of what good sex is, let alone foreplay. I thought Australian men would be no different. This was the only time I enjoyed being proven wrong. So please allow me, with the exemption of Pattison, to thank you for all the great, fit, goodlooking men you have sent my way.

    Call me lucky but I am fortunate to have met the real Australians who are relaxed, trusting, hospitable and compassionate people who always treat me like family even after using all my portals available, even some I never thought possible! Your people have always kept it real. Yes, they can be blunt, but they convey it with respect and tasteful humor.

    And so far, as far as Dubai is concerned, I have never met an Australian who is out of shape. In fact, it was the Aussies who pioneered the much need military-style fitness bootcamp here. I am considering migrating Down Under after my stint in Dubai. Even Facebook agrees I should live in Sydney!

    Anyway, as fate would have it, thank you for sending me a stunning couple from Brisbane to top-up our celebration today. They did introduce me to whole new ways to play. I hardly slept last night and called in sick today to prepare myself for yet another promising daytime shag in the arvo. I am bloody excited.

    Keep being uncomplicated. I have been drawn to that quality of your people where there is beauty in the absence of a grey area.

    Happy Birthday, Australia.


    Send me a lover (or three),
    ZiMsTeR xx

    Nor am I. I'm of pioneer stock, and my family had already made it in Europe before we come to Oz, and we come as large land owners.

    Yet newcomers to this great Southern land, get more rights than I do, only because I was born a poof.

    I was in Northern Australia. I saw the movie "Australia" a couple of week ago. What can I say about it. I LOVE AUSTRALIA. The landscape, , the outback, australian bushmen and aborigine culture, the guys, ....everything about Australia is wonderful. Everything is massive , masculine and macho. My only problem is for a Malaysian citizen to enter Australia mean they will search me 100%, open my bag, check how much money I have , check on my return plane ticket, ask me why I am here. I dont blame them, there are lot of fellow Malaysian who enter as tourist and never leave. It a small price to pay , though for a chance to enjoy the wonder of Australia.

    Pattison, just love you , mate.

    Please know. I just loved what you said, and not about me either.

    Some may want to fob me off as a racist, and I can live with that. They say it's the truth that really hurts; it's the thing I hate about political correctness, it give people a right to abuse another, for not having their view.

    But non of these people have seem some of the people I mix with, nor the diversity, of the people I work with, who come to Oz, to do medical studies, and we have no issues.

    You talk of people who come here for a holiday, and stay. First of all this tell me they say :fuck your laws. I come first! Then if they win the right to stay. They get more rights than I. A True Blue Aussie. Some-one whose Forefathers come as pioneers 200 years ago. They may become Australian cits, but will never be an Aussie. Thats my heratig.

    Kind regards.

    PS. I'm still to see the Movie Australia. I found it A Turn off they used an American Actress, Ms Kidman, when we have so many of our own.

    Pattison,

    What? Ms Kidman is American. She's Aussie. She was married to Tom Cruise who is American. You should see Australia. Some subject are racially sensitive but there also good things about the wonder of aboriginal culture and to show that NOT all white pioneer of Australia are racist . Stuff about the "stolen generation" are very well presented. I personally think the movie do a balance and fair statement about this sensitive issue.

    No, I dont think you are racist at all. My country have immigrant from all over Asia, China, India, Indonesia and they have live here and built the country for hundreds of years. The way I see it they have as much right as
    as Malaysian citizen as native Malay like me (even I have some immigrant Indian blood in my vein).

    Ms kidman was born in the USA, and calls America home. She is American, not Aussie. She just spent some time here in her youth, and made her first movie: BMX bandits. Mel Gibson, American, Russell Crow Kiwi.

    My Issue is: Just because I was born a poof, this deprives me of the same right newcomers have when they come to call Oz home. the right to marriage it is easier for them too bring loved ones into Oz, than I do. I have a man in Russia I love, and when I found out it was almost imposible for me to get him back here to be with me. It was the first time ever. i realised newcomers have more Right in Oz than I do. A true Blue Aussie, and we have been giving to oz for 200 years.

    So from that moment I started to rebel, and piss people off. something I never knew I was even good at! From this I have also learned, how spiteful people are too.

    But my life is good, and I am at peace (sorry too disappoint the Masses), and I still have my man in Russia, and his love. It will be 10 years in March.

    Well I've just made a pot of hot and sour soup; yummy.

    It's been a great Australia day for me. I hope you all had a good one too.

    And Pattison, you know that Centrelink will support the polygamous families of migrants to Australia, supporting each wife's family separately and giving them separate public housing if it's necessary? I wrote to Philip Ruddock, the previous Attorney General for clarification as to why that was possible when gay marriage was not. He confirmed it to me, without any apologies for being against gay marriage.

    I often read what you write about being Aussie (I'm convict stock for that matter) and not being able to have two husbands. I sometimes think it is just racism, but you might be right, some newcomers do have more rights than we'll ever have.

    Still, the important thing is to make all lovers of freedom, equality and peace welcome. There has been some disgusting racist violence today by Australians. We don't want to make those ones welcome.

    OFF TOPIC.

    Thank you so much for your reply, and I truly hope you had a happy and safe Australia day too. Please know I treat newcomer with warmth and respect. Shame they don't all show me the same, because some despise me, just because "I am an Aussie!"

    Oh I do not support violence either!!!!
