  • "It's more affordable to own property in Canada, I heard." I think may issue sa Toronto, lalu na sa downtown area. Due to the lack of property devs, landlords can demand higher rents. For ex. sa 1st yr of stay nyo sa isang condo unit ang charge i…
  • Masyadong pinahihirapan nyo lang sarili nyo magbitbit ng mga items na pwdeng mabili dito. Vit C meron dito sa chemist whse para mura; sakit sa ulo - nurofen; trankaso - lemsip; whiteflower sa chinese grocery store (china town). Pwdeng magdala kahit …
  • Probably a good example is the looking for friends thread... (bsaya man). So hindi lang sa syd pati ade din, tsk. Haha.
  • @jennyfv Pangit mag remit sa bpi. Dun sa fil-store every time na nagpapadala ako ng pera babawasan nila ng 5cents yung exchange rate or additional $5 remittance fee pag BPI.
  • @Lrac Madami akong nakikitang opening sa IT and Finance industry. Hindi ko alam sa ibang field. You can also look at smartjobs.qld.gov.au if you want to work sa gov. Maganda benefits dun at job security.
  • @Lrac Kelan ang BM nyo dito?
  • "ano sir sa CBD area ba may mga hospitals/clinics/laboratories?" Hospital - I think RBH yung general publich hospital - mga 10min bus ride, meron din Spring Hill Specialist day hospital, walking distance from the CBD. Maraming labs like xray, blood…
  • @Lrac Ayus, taga CBD din ako. Magkapit bahay lang tau.
  • @julypearl, @alfonso31 meetup and coffee/dinner. Let me know kung nandito na kau sa brissy :)
  • 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 crimemap.info, 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??!?…
  • [quote]1. Saan po kayong city???[/quote] Gaanu na kau katagal dito sa Aus? Dude, hate to burst your bubble, watch dashcam australia. [quote]alalahanin rin natin baka pagod na rin sila or may pinagdadaanan lang. trabaho lang walang personalan.[/quot…
  • Basic things to bring in brissy: clothes (I think), pure foods corned beef, nestea ice tea, goldilocks polvoron, nbi clearance (kesa pumunta pa ng sydney), pictures yung pang ID (white background) passport or 2x2, 1x1. Things that are cheaper here…
  • 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…
  • @raspberry0707 Welcome to Brissy. How are you finding it so far? Saan po kayo dito? Pa lapit na summer kaya mainit na. @Anino78 Cane toads? Hindi naman new zealand ang brisbane na puro damo at baka, haha :p High tech naman ang Brissy, meron kaming…
  • @allej Welcome to the thread! Kung gov't, dito ka mag search: https://smartjobs.qld.gov.au Sabi ng friend ko dami daw vacant sa queensland health. Anu ba profession mu, IT ka Web Developer or Helpdesk, naghahanap kung company namin ngaun ng mga …

  • @poochy500 IT ka ba, may mga opening kami sa different fields ng IT from general helpdesk to specialised like programming, security, networking, etc. Baka mas appropriate eto kesa sa customer service.

  • Pwede po ba mag-apply sa Big 4 audit firms dyan kahit hindi pa CA or recognized CPA sa kanila? Pwdeng-pwde pero dapat may big4 background ka na. You can also go through the Advisory route para hindi naman talaga requirement ang pagiging CA or CPA au…
