Thanks so much for your post at

"Beware of this man, he is a scammer." - Colombo Warnings Or Dangers Tip by planxty

That old man is still on the prowl as of November, 2016! I was shocked when I found your post when I googled for a Colombo "harbor master" to see if I could find any legitimate contact information. He was one of a few shady folks I ran into in Sri Lanka. Anyway, it pissed me off but the restored my sanity when I happened to find your post. Thanks again!

Fergy, how are we going to stay in contact? Do not want to lose you my friend.

    No problem, mate, and I would love to keep in touch. I'll send you a private mail with my details. <br/><br/>I wonder how many good, solid online friendships are going to founder because of this corporate (not to mention jealous) butchery.

    Far too many, my friend, far too many.

    Thank you so much although I only came second, however that is not a problem as Lori so richly deserved it. She's a star.

Hi Fergy. Happy new year. I'm sure you have heard of the news already. With the imminent closing of VT, I hope we could still get in touch. Looking forward to your visit to the Philippines again.

    Is it true, so no more VT ? Very sad to learn about this though I was not able to visit VT like I did years ago due to many reasons. Hope we will see you around AsianBelle (very friendly lady I've met in Manila), our Fergy and other fellow Vters! Greetings from Myanmar, Zin

    Hello again Zin,<br/><br/>good to hear from you and yes, regrettably the sad news is all too true. Sure, it would be great to meet up somewhere at some time. I'll send you my personal e-mail in a private message.

    Hello there,<br/><br/>and a (belated) Happy New Year to you and yours as well. I haven't really been on SL for a few days (sleep fairy really messing up) but I hope you had a good one and saw it in in appropriate style. I actually was asleeep (bloody sleep fairy) until those damned fireworks woke me up. Really, I thought it was Friday rather than Saturday so I just waited for the noise to die down and went back to sleep.<br/><br/>Sleep, I remember that. I am hacked off bored now so going out for a walk.<br/><br/>Regards to all and speak soon,<br/><br/>fergy.
