    hello! BM namin ng family ko sa 1st week ng April sa Adelaide, stay muna sa Sydney maybe for a week, sa mga relatives, tapos lipad na pa-ADL after. Nag-umpisa na kami mag-aaply ng work, hanap ng Airbnb at house to rent. So far, wala pa lahat. Nakakakaba dahil wala din kami relatives at friends sa SA. Hopefully everything can be sorted out soon.

    @barbedwire salamat!
    Ako kasi wala nmn maxadong ipon. Haha
    Naubos sa visa application

    May nabasa ako dati dito sa forum... budget for at least 3 months assuming na wala pa kong work.
    So kunwari $2k per month (single to ah), dala ka $6k. PERO xempre mas okay if mas malaki. May credit card din ako for emergency purposes.
    Hanap din agad ng work para may income na agad.

    Medyo nakakatulong nga din na may malalapitan ka, although from another state sila.

    God bless sa BM mo @caienri !

    Samin, nagtransfer na kami ng funds to Aus, habang mura pa ang AUD, para sure na hindi na bababa yung value ng ipon namin Php. Ipon pa ulit habang may work pa dito sa Pinas.

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.
