Ok, so I am getting HEAPS of new applications, everyday from all over the world. I wanna try and use this part of the blog as a place for all of you new guys to just drop in, say hi and introduce yourselves or something, thanks, ICI.


  1. Hey All!

    Just thought Id introduce myself and be the first poster here. *YaY*. So my name is Afiq and I'm from the land down under a.k.a Australia. Many people believe we use kangaroo's as a form of transportation and have crocodiles as pets, so if I do get chosen I'd be able to put that rumour to rest.

    But, good luck to all and hopefully we'll bump into each other!
