    Do: Smile and greet everyone =) We find that most Australians or anyone here are friendly and happy.
    Yesterday @ Rhodes, my wife said hello to our kababayans, 1 smile back na parang pilit, ung 2 dedma haha. Nagulat ata cla ate at kuya. But our Aussie friend find it rude. How hard would it be to smile back and start a small conversation? imho


    True! :)

    Mga Australians din, kahit di mo kilala, nag ggood morning pag nasasalubong mo sa daan :)
    Kaya lagi na din ako nag ggood morning, everytime may makakasalubong ako pag labas ko ng bahay, papasok sa office :) hehe

    Nice way to start our day :)

    Ako naman kapag may nakakasalubong ako na chika babe along footpath kaagad naggi-give way ako sabay ngingitian ko at smile din sya then she will say Thank you. :D

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.
