    @emman09 thank you. Ang prob ko kase kaka-alis lang sa company ng boss ko na pumirma ng COE ko kaya kinabahan ako bigla hahaha... bahala na si batty
    Wah! Ganto din problema ko. Nag resign na kasi sa company yung pumirma sa COE ko. Eh etong HR di alam ang exact duties and responsibilities ko. Ayaw din nila ibigay yung COE na may job duties. Hmm.. Dun kaya sila tatawag sa signatory? Meron naman number nya sa ilalim ng name.

    @TTam kitakits. may job offer ka na ba? heads up lang na nsa holiday mode pa sila until Feb. So most likely nasa March ang start nila mag process ng job applications

    @itchard developer ka ba bro?

    medyo mabagal processing ng job application sa AU.
    most likely dapat mga 2 weeks before nagpapasa ka na ng mga CVs mo.

    @Liolaeus same day na pinoroblema ko yan, lumabas ang grant ko. Tingin ko random nga lang ang checking nila kase di naman tinawagan yung ex-boss ko... at tingin ko kung tatawag man sila eh dun nga sa pumirma ng COE mo. Headsup mo na lang sya para sure. Kung sa HR naman sila tatawag, malamang ipapasa nila sa manager mo yun. So talk to your present manager too. Better be prepared na lang :)

    @dantz15 Salamat sa heads up! Baka last week kami ng January. Para maasikaso yung settlement like paghahanap ng rent, medyo mahirap ata makahanap daw ng mauupahan sa Sydney sabi ng napagtanungan nami. Kaya medyo magbigay kami ilang week for that.

    Nag initial entry ka na pala, sa Sydney din target mo?

    Congrats pala sayo! :)

    @TTam thanks. naka 190 NSW kasi ako kaya wala din ako choice hehe.
    pero since then naman either Sydney or Melb ang plan ko kaya ok pa din.

    Yan mga nababasa ko sa mga post dito.
    Pero oppose sya sa opinion ng mga kakilala ko dito.
    Siguro depende sa own preference nyo na lang lalo na sa price range.

    good luck sa ating lahat. hehe :D

    @leah28 I agree po sis :) naenjoy ko po ang weather kahit nung minsan ay 4 seasons in one day. Naenjoy ko din ung lamig kasi galing ako ng Middle East kaya po cguro excited na excited kami sa malamig hehehe :) Dun po sa natirahan namin na suburb sa Wonga Park although medyo malayo sa city pero sobrang peaceful and mababait ang mga tao ngiti sa iyo sa bus stop kapag nakasabay mo, kapag may nakasalubong na mga Aussie babatiin ka pa nila at nakilala na kami ng bus driver parati kapag sasakay kami sa umaga hehehe. Sarap din maglakad sa umaga huni ng mga ibon madidinig and madami greens country living ang peg :) Naenjoy din po namin magcommute kasi almost lahat ng lugar naman po is connected naman ng mga train stations, trams or bus dito kasi sa Middle East madalas nasa car lang or sa cab lang hehehe. Kitakits po sa Melby next year Ms. Leah. ;) San po pala kayo suburb nakatira sa Melby?

    sissies @leah28 and @filoz, kumusta ba weather sa melbourne? fist choice ko talaga sya puntahan but for some reasons, gusto ko muna try Sydney. What should I expect in those wonderful cities?
    @ana_gdel Nung dumating kami sobrang lamig pa sis hehehe tapos may time pa na umulan maghapon kaya lalong lumamig hehehe :) Pero totoo ung 4 seasons in one day naranasan ko din siya pero carry naman naenjoy ko talaga ang weather. Pero ngayon I think Spring na so nagpapakita na si Mr. Sun yey! :) Wala ako masabi sis kundi nakapaganda ni Melby hehehe :) Nainlove na ako sa kanya talaga sa lugar, sa vibe, sa dami ng choices ng pagkain, sa diversity ng tao and pati na sa weather hahaha. Check mo sis ung mga recent post ko sa fb wall may mga pics ako ng Melby nung naginitial entry kami last Aug 21 to 29. :) Napakablessed natin lahat na binigyan tayo ng opportunity ni Lord na tumira sa bansa ng Australia. ;) Hope to see you all mates! ;)

    @ana_gdel better buy kung san ka magsstay permanently.
    Just think of the warranty, mas no hassle pa pag sa oz ka magclaim.
    Kasi lahat naman halos magkakapareho ng model kahit anung country ka bumili.
    In case may diff sa price, im sure its a small price to pay in case may masira at need mo mag claim ng warranty.

    @chu_se Kung makkitira ka po as starting thats is good idea so you can save up. Ok rin po ang Perth slow din po at hindi rush ang mga tao pero job indemand still Sydney and Melbourne are better pero depende rin po sa work career nyo. kelan po ba balak nyo magpunta dito? pero expectation na po starting this month all the way feb next year ung recruitment nila medjo mabagal na. pero kung single ka lang nmn na magpupunta dito is ok lang kasi ikaw lang magaadjust pero family wise kung my mga kiddos mas mganda po environment ng Adelaide, Melbourne at QLD.
