    I advice you i priorities mo mag aral ng driving big advantage sa time management at makakapunta ka kung saan mo gusto. Bili ka muna ng used car for your first car at kung sanay ka na mag drive at kung may budget kana staka ka bumili ng brand new car. Mag four years na ako dito sa canberra kaya alam ko kung gaanu kahirap ang walang sasakyan lalo kapag weekend at least sa sydney di ganun katagal maghintay ng transportation. I hope this august makuha ko na Provisionary driving licence ko para no worries na at makapunta na ulit ako ng sydney at for the first time melbourne, long driving hehe.... Goodluck.

    Mas dumami Pinoy ngayun... Pangalawa sa pinakamaginaw ang Canberra ang una hobart Tazmania. Kapag winter puede ka mamasyal sa Snow mountain 3 hours ang travel. Ang Canberra ay isa pa rin na Regional Australia o Low Population Growth Metropolitan Areas means may mataas na chance ma approved o kailangan ng mga skilled migrant. Wala naman madali ngayun sa pag apply ng PR lahat nman dumadaan sa proseso ang importante alam mo na eligible ka sa pag apply PR at may mga documents ka. May dalawang state na Regional ito ang Northern teritory at South Australia.

    Goodluck....
