    @brent God has plans for us.. Sumasakay lang kami ng bus dito dahil wala pang kotse and licensya. Ok naman ang mga buses dito, aabangan mo lang talaga time schedule nila, pero mas ok pa rin talaga may sasakyan, kase u can go anywhere, anytime. Madali naman na kumuha ng sasakyan dito basta may trabaho ka. Di katulad sa pilipinas na kailangan may down payment, dito wala, ang importante lang may trabaho ka at may pambayad.
    Nagstart pa lang kami mag apply ng work and sana may tumawag na.. Hehe.. Goodluck!

    @hotshot
    Sure po sir. Baka next month po kumuha ako. Nagddrive na din ako dito medyo maninibago ka lang talaga sa una. Meron pa nga 1 time, big intersection.. mag-turn kasi ako sa right dun ang punta ko.. nagkamali ako sa right lane ako pumasok. HAHAHA!! Yun babae na driver nakita namin nanlaki talaga mata akala siguro mamamatay na siya. Buti walang pulis. Keep left kasi dito.

    Yup tama si Mikaela. Kapag nasa round about always give way sa incoming vehicles sa right. Tapos mahigpit sila sa speeding.

    ang babaet ng mga drivers dito sa au. hehehe. talagang kahit na malayo ka pa sa kalsada e papaunahin ka tumawid. hehehe. katuwa lang.. wala nacocompare ko lang sa pinas na karamihan sa mga driver e mga barubal. tapos wala pa bubusina sayo dito na parang sinasabing.. "HOY DALIAN MO NAMAN TUMAWID!! WALA KA SA MOON!" hehehe. tapos ang dami pa nung favorite traffic sign ko.. na naglalakad na tao na kulay green. na ang ibig sabihin e ang tumatawid ang bida, kaya tumigil ang may sasakyan kapag may tatawid. hehehe.
