Mauritius wiki - the full list

Wikipedia came and change everything, and eventually Wikis became an integral part of the Internet. I'm not going into the debate of wikis versus traditional encyclopedias since this has been done to death and adding one small pebble in the ocean will probably go unnoticed.

I can however compile a list of the wikis that relate to Mauritius. This should be useful to anybody's who searching for Mauritius wikis to vandalize. Why should you though? This blog is all you need and is already about one million times more useful than all the wikis in the universe. And although you cannot actually vandalize this brilliant news blog, you can always drop a well-thought insult on the Mauritius News Facebook page or follow us on Twitter. Doing so makes everybody happy...

Pissed off dog this guy.

To be honest, my research has shown that there are not many wikis devoted to Mauritius. In fact, as usual, Wikipedia seems to be the only one available with an extremely exhaustive Mauritius page, and its content is merely being copied by other wikis. Some tests I conducted have also shown that these lesser-quality wikis are automatically reflecting changes made on the original Mauritius page on Wikipedia.

This is the Mauritius page on the world's most famous wiki. You can find links to other pages devoted to particular topics related to Mauritius from here.

That's pretty much the only one you need to bother about. I've also seen a couple of websites that claim to be "Mauritius travel wikis" but have absolutely no relevant information and focus solely on plugging their "mind-blasting deals" in your face. Make sure your anti-virus software is updated if you do want to check out these websites as they also look extremely shady.

Engen Extravaganza results - 2017

I know a lot of people are still looking for the Engen Extravaganza results 2017, so I did some sleuthing.

A few notes:
Yes, the ticket numbers are really small on the artwork. I can't do anything about that.Engen seem to be experts at doing a huge marketing campaign around their extravaganza and being quiet about the lucky draws.The guys at Engen Bagatelle have nothing to do with the marketing and the lucky draw, so don't be dicks. If you have something to complain about, direct your comments to the Engen head office.

Mauritius newspapers online

This is a list of the main newspapers in Mauritius as well as their websites. I suspect that this will mainly be of use to Mauritian expatriates since it is more customary for people in Mauritius to actually buy their newspapers (turns out the feel of paper in their hands is that important). This Mauritian newspaper list will also be helpful for those who wish to tour all the newspapers on any given day.
Le Défi Le Défi is the most popular newspaper in Mauritius. While it was originally only published on Saturdays, its rapid popularity has seen the group expand into several publications.

These different newspapers include:
Le Défi Quotidien - which, as its name implies, comes out every day (except weekends)
Le Défi Plus - is published on Saturdays only
Défi Sexo - a newspapers that deals with sexuality and is a half-assed attempt to get easy sales by exploiting the sexual frustrations present in a big portion of the Mauritian population (which, you know, eventually leads to sexual assaul…

Where to buy a PlayStation 4 in Mauritius

I recently got a PlayStation 4 because my PlayStation 3 died out on me. There are not many games I'm looking to play but I figured it would be easier to just go for the PS4 since I watched my blurays (including 3D) on my PS3. I figured I would buy a PS4 instead of a normal bluray player as the PS4 has tons of nice features including Netflix which is now available in Mauritius.

I checked through most stores around Mauritius before I finally got a PlayStation 4 and these are my conclusions:

Don't buy your new console in major outlets such as Galaxy. The consoles are very expensive there. Sure, you get a game or two in the bundle, but it is almost always cheaper to get the console and the game separately. In many cases, you get crap games anyway. Considering how expensive the games can be, you don't want to end up with crap ones.Cellbest and One O One have the best prices. Depending on your haggling skills, you can even knock the One O One price a bit.I hear MicroMania is grea…
