Hello everyone,

Upcoming SA Migrant? let us know here even before you arrive, so as early as now we can help you.

Some questions that are more Adelaide specific like how to look for accommodation here, getting around Adelaide. etc etc.
We will try our best to help you.

Anyway our group of new migrants here are very active in meeting up every week (sometimes twice a week pa :) ). And our numbers are growing. It's really good to know that there are accommodating people waiting for you here in Adelaide.

Hope to see you soon!
Ta!

    @lock_code2004 Thanks!

    @hcc7944
    2 BR it depends sa area, but like this one based sa realestate.com.au http://www.realestate.com.au/property-unit-sa-brooklyn+park-404956638 around $300-450 ang 2BR fully furnished. Adelaide has the most affordable housing of all the states :)

    Libangan would be, meet up with friends at kumain (tulad ng gagawin ko now after church). Mall maaga nagsasara pag weekends until 5pm lang. Pasyal sa beach at park then picnic ang common family activity here.
