I’ve lived in Melbourne for nearly 10 years now, and I’m thankful for every day of it.

I love the life here, and I try my very best to assimilate and learn of the cultures here. Heck, I even support a footy (AFL) team!

*Hint – it has nothing to do with birds of any kind and I love puppies

I love passing on my knowledge and experiences from my own cultures to my new found Australian friends and work colleagues. They in turn find it quite amazing and interesting on the many superstitions, traditions and cultures I hold dear to my heart.

That being said, as time passes by, I find myself saying that ‘home‘ is Melbourne and ‘us‘ is Australians more and more each day.

It’s hard living in two worlds, and I am proud of where I have come from and what I have done to be where I am today.

I thus, am very proud of any Malaysian or Australian that make it big, draw successes and live their dreams.

Especially if they have left their home country, their comfort zone, their friends and family, to achieve those dreams.

In 2010, the Australian Government committed AUD$20 million to build up the Brand Australia Program in four years.

The general purpose for this contribution and commitment is to enhance public global awareness to the success stories of Australians around the world.

Through the brand ‘Australia Unlimited’, the aim is to raise awareness of contemporary Australian credentials in business, science, education, technology, creativity and not-for-profit activity, which is where this great iPad magazine app comes in.

In a format that is engaging, fun and interactive, this Australia Unlimited iPad Application will showcase Australia’s creativity, innovation and intellect.

What’s more? This app is FREE!!! Click here [Australia Unlimited] to download it to your iTunes.

If you are wondering what the significance is with Australian Unlimited and this blog, it’s pretty simple.

This blog as you know deals mostly with food, travel and entertainment. So technically, this app features all three of these topics in this month’s issue, with a feature on Bill Granger (Food), Australians overseas (Travel) and Entertainment (this is an online magazine!).

So go on, what are you waiting for? Download this app today!
