Wassup people. Sorry It's been a little quiet on the Oli Front.Been finishing off the last few days/weeks of work for 2012. Just 2 more days to go and it's time to chill out.Well.... at least it WOULD be time to chill out... except I had a call from the lovely people at Men's Health...Every Year they hold this insanity called the URBANATHALONhttp://urbanathlon2013.menshealth.com.sg/Think like a 12-14 KM race... with a good 9 or so OBSTACLES to face... like swimming through a mud pool, carry a 20lb Sand Bag, Monkey Bars etc etcThey...Read more
The last few weeks have been a level of insanity that it's been almost hard to cope. With trips to Thailand, Indonesia and India my feet have barely touched the floor.For those of you that follow my Twitter and FB (@oli_pettigrew and www.facebook.com/theofficialolipettigrew) - then you would have seen the crazy pics.Linda and I were lucky enough to be invited to the Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort in Koh Samui.It was SO beautiful- It was a ...Read more
At some point every year it goes bananas It's just how it works - you can spend months just clicking your heels.... waiting for work.

Okay, It's been far too long - I could give you a whole host of excuses but I've just been lazy.I was distracted by the wonders of Twitter and Instagram - and of course when I say 'wonders' what I actually mean is it takes me 3 seconds to use them.But i've decided that I need to start blogging again... to share info, experiences and trips abroad.So I'm back people..... it's Oli V2.0 - in more ways than one:-Read more

Dear united airlines,
I feel compelled to e mail you on the truly astounding level of customer service that we received on flight 281 from Narita to Singapore on the 13th July 2010.
I have always flown Northwest Airlines to the US via Japan, and I must admit they were left wanting. The only relief I ever had was that the plane to Japan was relatively new, and the staff onboard for the Japan leg was professional and courteous.... We won' t even mention the US leg.
However, I have not fl...Read more
HI EVERYONE!!! Yes, I know... I have been invisible for months and months... but for good reason... well, okay... kinda a good reason combined with just being lazy... but in my defense, for the last 2 months I have barely even seen my family, let alone had time to blog.It's been a great few months for the Pettigrew family (including my wife Linda Black)... It seems that this year is our year, and a whole bunch of great projects came our way and made us busy-bee world traveling hosting junkies.Outside of shooting Sony ...Read more

Hi there everyone. I know it's been a quiet few months from me, and I apologise for that. I took a bit of a hiatus from everything after I broke my foot. In my line of work the end of the year and the beginning of the next is always a quiet time. So I took a few months off and did absolutely NOTHING. It was great. I ate what I wanted, rarely went to the gym, relaxed and spent time with family and friends. I did all this because I knew... I just KNEW that 2010 was going to be busy. But to be honest I had no clue it would be T...Read more
