The Best Moments of My Working & Travelling Days (My Good Old Days) - Australia (1984,1990,1995,2000-2004)


Those GOOD OLD DAYS when you worked for hours & hours without getting tired - we were the YOUNG ONES " 

" Enjoy yourself. These are the GOOD OLD DAYS you are going to miss them in the years ahead " 

" Sometimes you don't realize how good the GOOD OLD DAYs were until they're gone "

"All works no play makes Jack a dull boy" - while on official visits to Australia, there were windows of opportunities for me to join some day tours during the weekends and visit a number of country towns in between the major capital cities of Australia.

Due to the nature of my job, I had to make several working visits to Australia during the good old days and this gave me great opportunities to visit their agribusiness, building & construction, food processing industries and some of the most memorable places I visited were:

- Underground coal mine
- Paper & pulp mill
- Milk processing plants
- Cattle breeding farms
- Vineyards 
- Fruit Orchards
- Hydroponic vegetable farms

" The PAST cannot be changed, forgotten, edited or erased; it can only be accepted "

" The only time you should ever look back, is to see how far you've come " 

" Your PAST has given you the strength & wisdom you have today. So celebrate it. Don't let it haunt you "
