  • Are you staying here permanently/migrating? If so, dito ka na lang bumili. Maganda yung warranty dito bec of consumer protection. Most gadgets can be replaced/repaired beyond 2 yrs after purchase date. Kung mura, can't answer that di ko alam ang p…
  • Madali din naman aplayan yung canada. Nung sabay akong nag-apply sa canada and australia as immigrant, nauna ng 1 week yung approval ko sa canada compare sa aus. Safe din at may snow. Mas superior ang health/medicare ng canada, mas mabilis ang int…
  • ^May mga posting sa seek na mga administration assistant or graduate position kung office environment ang hanap mu. Pag nakuha mu na yung sched mu sa uni, i-presenta mu lng sa employer and they'll work around your sched. May mga call centre type of …
  • Is SSS really a good investment option? Maganda ba ang performance ng fund nila, or is it better for you to regularly buy BPI/SMC/whatever shares para 'self-managed' retirement fund. Or take advantage of salary-sacrifice super dito. Fixed income b…
  • Yes - mas focus ako sa life outside work - hobbies, workouts/healthy lifestyle, netflix (binge watching shows), travel, etc. Pero sa perspective ng isang taga-Syd, boring ang Brissy - maliit ang city mall; siguro nasa one third or one fourth ang mga…
  • True bigger city entails more work, more competition, more stress. Both pros and cons are increased in bigger cities. You just need to focus your attention on backstabbers, ofc politics, discrimination and bullying coz it's difficult kung wla kang …
  • Punta ka sa, type mu address then get result. Flood maps probably nasa local council website yang ganyang info.
  • Also just to correct 'calamity' not 'calamities' - you're referring to Yasi of the 2011 flood, Debbie doesn't count, well if you count no work/no classes (due to heavy rain) as a calamity then probably ave. once a year, I think. Tsk no work/no class…
  • I can give you some pros and cons in living in Brissy. Pro: Better affordability/availability of property due to current surplus; warmer - as to the climate; brighter - more sunshine, but I do prefer gloomy weather conditions of Melb; smaller city -…
  • @MissOZdreamer Brisbane, where I'm from, madami naman. A friend of mine is from Perth, ok din ang IT dun. Madami sa Canberra but some may require security clearance lalo na pag govt, probably citizen ang min requirement. Gold Coast (Brisbane)/ Cair…
  • Tambakan na kasi ang sydney, lol - saan nyu gustu mag migrate, sa syd; saan nyu gustu pumasyal, sa opera house; saan nyu gustu mag-work, sa syd. Kaya dun na napupunta ang ibat-ibang lahi plus local ang kalaban mu. Idagdag mu pa na kung gustu mu sa '…
  • Hmm, nuod or i-sugal ko na lang. Kumita pa ako (pag nanalo) and in a way may support ako sa kababayan :)
  • [quote]Just pointing out that it is not as bad as how juan illustrates it.[/quote] Paanu kung madalas itong mangyari sa area/suburb niya or sa pang araw araw nyang pag drive. I think the morale of this is to enroll in defensive driving. Inoofer ito …
  • May 20% off pala ang ebay au ngaun. It's not sitewide pero maraming participating store just check the front page ad. Ang downside eh, they jacked up their prices prior to the sale... so tipid na rin as long as you don't know the price history??!?…

  • There's little reason to go malling these days - online shopping, paid parking, netflix. Wala ring masarap na kainan sa malls at least may ubereats, foodora, menulog.
  • Might want to consider this before moving to Syd, haha.
  • It's warmer here compared in Sydney. Once ko lang na experience yung 40deg nung 2008 or 2009 but dry ang climate which is better kumpara sa atin. Winter, depende sa tao yan ako yung pinaka malamig na winter eh tshirt at jacket. I can still sweat a…

  • ^I see. Well madali na lang yan pag nandito ka na. Mas prefer ng employer pag face to face interview. Kung mahirap maghanap sa private sector, madami namang posting na gov't jobs, boring nga lang kasi petiks petiks mga tao dun. :)

  • @Elsie123 You have my sympathy. Not only the trauma but yung time, effort, lost opportunity, etc. dahil sa pag administer ng kaso tapos yung lang. Napapansin ko lenient ang courts dito, hindi tulad sa US or sa atin criminal record na siguro 'to. I …
  • @poochy500 Depende sa industry mu... Healthy naman yung job market ng IT dito.
  • I've looked at a couple of resume and interviewed prospective candidates. Some of the observations I've noticed were: -boring resume; need to sell yourself more; check your grammar, align your skills with the job requirement -don't be late, number …
