    Thanks @ Bryan. May napansin lang ako di ko maintindihan sa intersection. pag parehas na go yung magkabila or yung pasalubong at ikaw ay kakanan at yung kasalubong mo naman ay kakaliwa dapat priority sya. paano ba rules sa intersection?

    You mean sa round abouts? Or sa traffic lights? Give way ka kapag kakanan ka.

    @audreamer Yung rules po kasi sa intersection kung wala pong traffic lights e yung priority mo pa rin na may right of way is yung sa right side mo.
    Yung sa magkasalubong nman po siguro e either side may give way to the other vehicle. Saka mahirap lng minsan pag sa intersection e ung walang right turn sign at tatantyahin mo lng kung kelan ka pwedeng pumasok once clear na ung lane na kasalubong mo.

    Guys tanong lang tungkol sa credit card...ang general advice kasi sa thread ay mag-open ng bank account sa Australia..so does that follow na pag mag-migrate sa Australia, might as well cancel the cards in the Philippines and apply CC's there?

    @LokiJr better pa din if may matira kang CC at least isa in case of emergency. Pag may AU CC ka na saka mo pa-deactivate. May mga toll free numbers naman sila. Ako I have 3 credit cards with Citibank, papa-deactivate ko yung 2. Ang ok sa Citibank is combined credit limit yun so kahit paputol ko yun 2, parang ma-aaddd lang sa isang card yung limit. Pero as much as possible try ko di sya gamitin dun, for emergency lang talaga.

    Kahit na may CC ka na sa au para sakin wag mo pa din ipaputol CC mo sa pinas. Tulad ko recently lang may kelangan ko bilhin sa pinas thru online store, e mas mura pa din kung peso, kaya ginamit ko pa din yung citibank cc ko. Kung bayad ka naman on time wala naman interest tsaka kapag mag annual fee na tumatawag na ko para ipa waive. Eto lage linya ko.. "e wala naman na ko utang sa inyo so kung ayaw nyo iwaive sige ipa-cut ko na lang credit card ko sa inyo." hehe. Works all the time kaya never pa ko nagbayad ng annual fee. :D (sa CC ko to sa pinas ah, im not sure pero hindi ata pwde yan sa CC dito sa au.) hehe.

    Haha! Pare-pareho lang tayo ng linya sa mga CSRs ng CC companies. :)

    How about naman po mobile number nyo dito sa Pilipinas? Ginagamit nyo pa din ba sa AU para mura pag ni-text kayo dun ng family or friends? Iniisip ko din kasi if papa-deactivate ko ba or pa-downgrade ko lang yung plan. Any thoughts on this or any information pano kayo natetext dyan sa AU kahit walang Phil. mobile number?

    @JClem dalawa cp ko bale dito. yung una yung globe roaming sim ko. para matext ako ng family ko from phil na piso lang. tapos second yung au sim ko para yun naman pang text ko sa pinas. hehehe. mas mura kasi, hindi ko nga nauubos yung 10aud a month plan ko. hehe. yung globe roaming sim ko prepaid sya. hindi ko lang alam kung pano kapag post paid.
    another tip pa pala para makatipd.. ang ginagamit ko pang message sa pinas e facebook. hehehe. kasi yung 10aud ko na plan e may kasama na 250mb internet data. so mas tipid. :p hindi ko nga nauubos yung 250mb na yun kahit na minu minuto ko mag message sa fb. :) tapos pinapantawag ko na lang yung lod ko kapag the next day e magrerestart na ulit lod ko.

    @JClem nagpapabili ko globe card na 100 sa pinas. tapos ayun nilolod ko. iba yung way ng pagload at pagcheck balance kapag roaming.

    loading
    *123* + call card num + pin + #

    check balance
    *122#

    every month kelangan bumili ng 100 globe card kasi naeexpire sya.
    tapos kapag may tumatawag sa globe ko.. hindi ko sinasagot.. kasi mababawasan din lod mo. ubos kagad kahit incoming call yun.

    @JClem : same din kay @aldousnow, dalawa din ang mine-maintain kong numbers (nasa SG ako ngayon). isang SG number at isang pinas (smart roaming) na number. ganun din cguro gagawin ko pagdating ko ng oz, isang oz at isang pinas pa din para makapagtext ng mura ang mga tao sa akin. pero mas maganda cguro yung ginagawa ni @aldousnow na prepaid na lang yung sim para mas mura (100/month). parang nakakahinayang yung binabayad ko ng 500/month dun sa smart line ko pero hindi ko mapaputol e. may sentimental value na din kasi yun...number ko pa yun since college so matagal-tagal na din. hahahaha
