    How do Hilton treat you as an Elite?

    General Medical issues thread

    Yes indeed. Most of our work is 'bad news' in pathology so the rare good results are a little bit of shining light. I have probably 60-80 patients a day I look after, almost none of whom would have any idea who I am. But I am there, desperately doing everything I can to make their lives a...

    Should I stay or should I go - Hong Kong [protests]

    In transit in HKG currently. Few flights delayed, very few (mainly Japan) cancelled. Haven't been landside but absolutely no sign of anything untoward airside.

    ANZ - 300,000 QFF points offer on a mortgage

    Yep we locked in for 5 years at a bad rate on the advice of a financial advisor :rolleyes: Still got over 2.5 years left. The comparisons I've done are at the end of the current fixed term (ie in 2.58 years). I have enough points already for 2xJ 35000 mile tickets. This is just short of...

    ANZ - 300,000 QFF points offer on a mortgage

    Our broker is recommending we refinance with ANZ. Unfortunately we fixed a portion of our mortgage which will cost us $22k break fee (ouch!), but with better rates we'll still come out ahead. Trying to decide between ANZ and BOQ, the latter will save us $5900 in the next 2 years, the former...

    Should I stay or should I go - Hong Kong [protests]

    In HKG right now. Other than a couple cancelled flights (which isn't probably much more than expected) there is nothing of note going on.

    Vietnam and USA; what could possibly go wrong?

    Bland breakfast at the Garden Inn! We decided to hit up the aquarium. 39,000VND Grab fare to Times City Aquarium which is located in a shopping mall (Vincom mega mall). 170,000VND entry. I saw some reviews which said the tanks were small and the animals are suffering which normally puts me...

    Vietnam and USA; what could possibly go wrong?

    Out and about Hanoi. So we decided to go out for a stroll to see how mr k_sheep would hold up. The Garden Inn is just down the road from the opera house. Some lovely tree-lined streets about. Ho Hoan Kiem lake Fruit sellers at the old quarter, citadel wall Dinner at Pho Thin...

    Vietnam and USA; what could possibly go wrong?

    Sapa is great, went there with my Mum a few years back. Lovely countryside. Craven, should be safe now, can keep the bag in the pocket :D Nice work earlyriser - living up to your name! All the ex-DAD seemed to be dead by the time I managed, and nothing through to JFK.

    Which whizz-bangery are you using to make your flying better?

    Yes I've splurged on the Yosemite one - for once, the australia tax worked in my favour, was $6.49 AUD (compared to 6.99USD!).

    50k Qantas or Velocity Pts with BOQS Signature Card. Incl. unlimited Priority Pass. THL exclusive to 31/8. Medical professionals only.

    Tempting. I was eyeing this card off (mainly for the PP benefit) but recently applied for citibank and QF premier cards instead. Wonder how much of a hit on the credit score I'd take with this too .... am still 800 on creditsavvy ... hmmm
