Male occupant,30, moving in by the end of Feb. Preferably walking Distance to train stations. Kindly pm me or email me at [email protected]
Occupation: 233214 (Structural Engineer)

Educ: 15 (Degree)
Work Experience: 10 (5+ yrs)
Language Skills: 10 (PTE-Proficient)
Age: 30 points
Total: 65 Points


04/03/17 - IELTS R6.5 W6.5 S7.5 L8.5 Good enough for EA Assessment (>6 each category). Haha. Self-review and not much time to practice kaya mababa scores. Haha. (Cge justify!). I think ang mali ko is nagfocus ako magreview ng Speaking and Listening.
Note: Hindi pa acceptable ang PTE sa EA at this moment.

24/04/17 - Submitted my application to EA.

25/05/17 - EA requested for additional evidence of employment. I initially submitted Income Tax Return from my 2 employers so supposed to be enough. But since they requested more I uploaded my payslips then.

15/06/17 - Finally! Received positive outcome from EA. Yuhoo!

(Since not enough pa din IELTS english points ko to get total points higher than 60 requirement for Visa, i took another exam from PTE. Sabi nila mas madali daw kesa IELTS. Eh di Go! Tsaka sayang din yung score ko sa IELTS-Speaking baka bumaba pa. Haha)

03/07/17 - Took PTE Exam. Hindi Madali!!! Haha. Siguro kulang ulit sa practice. Lol. I wasn't expecting na makapasa kasi may part sa lecture na wala akong nasabi. Haha. Pero yun, naka-74 ave. pa din. I therefore conclude na lenient talaga sila magscore. Hahaha. PTE Scores: L73, R71, S78, W83 (Results are out the next day)

05/07/17 - Submitted EOI 189. Start ng fiscal year so everyone's expecting ng buhos ng invitation. Tan-tanan! Haha.

10/08/17 - Super tagal ng invitation! Daming bad news (nag-cut ng staff ang dibp, processing time updated from 3 months, na naging 7 months then naging 11 months) Sa inip nagpasa ng EOI 190 for NSW. Dito lang pwede structural engr mag-EOI na walang show money eh. Haha. Sana pala Civil Engineer na lang occupation na pinili ko.

06/09/17 - I got invited this round! Since ang tagal nga di ako nag-eexpect na kasama ako. Pero yehey! So I scheduled immediately for COC-Eappeal here in sg. Nagsked na din for medical (SATA Online).

11/09/17 - SPF notified me that my e-appeal was approved. So I set appointment for fingerprinting. Got my COC on 15-Sep.

16/09/17 - I am expecting to have my health exam. But decided to call SATA (the clinic) first to confirm my booking. They said they do not accept booking thru online. #Haist. The next available weekend dates are on the week after.

23/09/17 - Had my Health Exam at SATA Ang Mo Kio. Results came out after 1 working day only.

25/09/17 - Finally I LODGED MY VISA!!! Yuhoo ulit. I submitted all docs na pwede i-submit hoping for DG, hehe. (Forms 80 and 1221 included) Iniisip ko pa actually ano pa pwede ko i-add. haha.

30/09/17 - Habang nag-aantay ng grant, mag-analyze muna ako. hehe.

As per myimmitracker, below are the nos. of grants (For 189 lang ha) for the past 3 months:

July : 29 grants
Aug: 86 grants
Sep: 611 grants.
Mabilis nag-escalate ang nos from aug-sep. So I think nagsisimula na sila magmadali starting Sep. So Oct will also be the same. May quota kasi sila need mainvite per occupation kaya dapat maghabol talaga sila. So I am expecting showers of grants for the month of Oct. "Expecting". haha.

God bless sa mga kasama kong nag-eexpect ng grant! and sa mga
waiting for ITA next week na ang invitation round. All the best sating lahat! Power!!

10/11/17 - Finally! Praise God! While busy working i accidentally opened my email and saw the new message from Nanginig akong bigla sa tuwa. haha. I was supposed not to tell it yet to my family para surprise but I cannot contain it. Overjoyed feeling once mareceive mo ang iyong grant.

God bless to the rest na nag-aapply pa lang and sa lahat ng waiting ng grants nila. Darating din yan at God's appointed time. :)

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
