"Originally Posted by CBRQF I have been doing a bit of work in SE Asia recently, facilitating workshops and the like. I used to take Tim Tams but found they weren't that popular.

"Originally Posted by mspcooper My usual gifts are Tim Tams, Hand crafted Boomerangs, Koala stuffed toys, Kangaroo stuffed toys. Boomerang was the most appreciated one followed by Tim Tams. I have given Tim Tams to Americans, and those new malt flavoured versions are to die for, but I do find tho..."
"Originally Posted by patrickk I give elegantly carved ‘buttons’ (about 150mm in diameter) of Australian fauna by a Victorian craft group called Buttonworks. They also do coasters in the same way. Well within your price range and they work in all cultures and are a lasting gift that..."

"Would I spend 60K to maintain Gold? Depends on how much traveling I had over the next status year. If I had lots, then I would want access to the lounges and shorter queues. If I had little travel, then probably not."
"I have had to do this in the past and had a 1:30 gap, but it was tight as security was so slow (in spite of the priority lane). Had no time in the lounge and had to board immediately. My least favourite airport in Australia... to change between Domestic and International. "
