His name is Fauja Singh. Nicknamed the “Turbaned Tornado”, he’s recognized as the worlds oldest marathon runner, having debuted at age 89 and retiring at 101. On March 23rd 2013, I had the opportunity of attending an SBS Press Conference, conducted by the man himself.
They say the world can't be perfect. People are fighting, getting killed, pointing fingers and spreading lies. Whatever the purpose is, the reality remains is we’re all different, yet we're the same.

Ah Melbourne autumn. The Moomba..University starts back..the Grand Prix.. It's festive to be sure. The thing that I like the most about this time of falling leaves and changing weather is a change of scene. Literally. With a week of entertainment and stylish punters, March also mean the Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. The festival kicks off on the 18th of March, with the last catwalk close on March 24th.
