Hello Good People,

One employer is asking me if I am interested to relocate to Hobart. I'm not sure how is living down there. Anyone from Tasmania here?

Cheers,
Chefin

    @chefin Hi!Ok naman daw po yung buhay dun sabi ng officemate ko. Marami na rin daw mga pinoys dun na willing to help new migrants that come there. Sabi kasi nung officemate ko wala daw silang kakilala nung dumating sila dun. maraming tumulong daw sa kanila when they are starting there ngayon for PR application na sila. 475 visa po kasi yung sa kanila nung una. Good Luck!

    Mas laid back lang daw yung buhay sa TAS kasi medyo isolated sya sa other staes of Oz. Medyo mababa din daw yung cost of living dun unlike sa Melbourne.

    @k_mavs mas maganda para sakin ung hindi populated na area. :) kame dito sa sg sa pasir ris kame nakatira, end ng green line. but hindi populated at feel mo talaga nakakapahinga ka kesa sa city. na paguwi mo puro offices parin nakikita mo :) hehe - just my opinion.

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.
