    @rjlim , kami nagpa wire transfer na lang from BPI to Commonwealth bank ng Sis-in-law ko sa Aus. Withdraw na lang namin pagdating doon, as aud na. May charges, pero medyo mura pa kasi ang aud, kaya kahit paano e nanegate yung charges lalo pag malakihan.

    May sinuggest samin option, bili daw ng aud sa black market, tapos dalhin na lang as cash. Mas mura ng onti yung forex, pero masyadong risky. Di kami sanay na may dalang malaking cash. haha

    @caienri @just.anotherguy okay dito sa melb, tahimik naman area namin, gusto namin vibe. Heheh dami parks dito, kung entring tita/tito hod na kayo mag eenjoy kayo. Weather is unpredictable tlaga sa melb. Yung init dito grabe, pra kang nasa pre heated oven. And dry sobra. Madaming adjustment, and need to adapt sa society nila. Its always a challenge and never stop learning, just enjoy. :) kung may question kayo about sa melb kungbg kayo ko sagutin, ask lang kayo. Hehe

    Also, car is a must here. Kung work-bahay lang naman kayo, di nyo need ng car, pero syempre, kung gusto nyo mag ikot at libot sa mga place, need talaga ang car. Great ocean road is a must, put it in your bucket list. Lalo na yung loch ard george. Hehe

    question sa mga mag BM. May nag try ba na yung pera ay exchange to USD then deposit to NAB?

    Nag inquire kasi ako sa bank. Ang sabi kapag PHP and dedeposit meron daw stamp fees pero kapag USD wala. So iniisip ko bumili/ipalit ko ng USD ang PHP ko then deposit sa NAB account.

    @flaming_vines parang ganun na nga. kaya kami nag-sesave ng SGD, instead na peso :) ang minimum amount na susundan eh yung minimum amount ng remittance ni DBS. Natry ko as low as SGD 10.

    @agd Ayos pala! Nga pala nakita ko kasi sa timeline mo nag IE ka na at naasikaso na rin yun DL. May mga questions sana ako kun ok lang.

    1. Nagconvert ka din ba from SG drivers license to AU NSW? If yes, regarding sa requirements, eto lang ba mga kailangan-SG drivers license, passport, AU address, LTO cert (photocopy pede naman diba? Kasi nabigay ko na yun Red ribbon copy dito sa SG nun nag convert). May namiss pa ba ako? PH DL dalhin ko na rin. how about picture?
    2. Yun AU DL i snail mail sa AU address or same day makuha mo na? Kasi IE lang kame then balik SG. Inde pa kame mag BM, Kaya iniisip ko kun snail mail kakausapin ko yun kaibigan ko. Then yun buong process mabilis lang?
    3. Yun sa NAB. Nun day ng appointment mo to verify your identity, bibigay na rin ba ATM card mo? Or snail mail din?
    4. Nabasa ko sa NAB welcome letter kailangan nila ng AU phone number. Para san purpose to? Ibanking ba? Gaya ba ng DBS yan na ang token e SMS? Or para lang sa reference nila kapag kinontak ka?

    Sensha na ha kun madameng tanong. Maraming Salamat.
