    Cookie policy - note to admin

    Every time we log in now, we must accept the 'Cookie policy'. What is the point in asking the question? If you click the X, you don't get to log in. So why would I go to Balipod then refuse to accept the 'policy'? Get rid of it, it is just annoying. I am sure nobody is going to sue Balipod...

    Import a TV into Bali

    Anyone tried to import a TV into Bali? I understand if it's new I'd have to pay a shedload of tax on it but what actually does that mean? If I buy it and play it for 2 weeks somewhere it's not "new" anymore is it? Would be interested in any experience you've had.

    Things to contemplate whilst in hospital....not to be read while eating a sandwich!

    While laying flat on a hospital bed for the last 10 days, with no access to a computer, I had many thoughts. One that kept recurring, especially as I was watching the bag of IV dripping into my arm, was why it went in clear or later like white soup when they realized I'd paid for VIP service...
