    Hey Sam! Since you were born in Queensland and joined QAS at a young age, is it fair to say that you’d support the Maroons over the Blues?

    Hi Sam. What I found it nice is your experience in a train station in Japan where you can find your lip balm in any corner there. I can imagine how cute you were in the station! I’m a Japanese guy living in France since more than 10 years. I like your tennis and love tennis. I love 911 4S, too. My second son is named Sam^^
