    to those in melbourne specially the girls.. just be careful during night times. generally safe naman sa australia pero recently maraming cases reported in the news about sexual assaults and rape from the melbourne cbd to it's suburbs.

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/hunt-on-for-university-of-melbourne-sex-attacker/story-fnat7jfp-1226528711325 ... the attacker looks asian actually and he hasn't been caught yet.

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/melbourne-teen-punches-attacker-and-flees-bushes/story-fnat7jfp-1226529394049 ...this one targeted a teenager in the suburbs.

    @psychoboy

    8 people attended dinner which was great for our first turnout.

    We are now 13 pinoys in Melbourne :). Two were from this forum so thanks to Pinoyau.

    Hopefully the club will grow so that newbies to Melbourne can easily meet other filipinos. Some of the attendees did not know about this forum so hopefully this forum can gain new members as well.

    Hi all,

    Pinoys in Melbourne are meeting again on Saturday 29 June at 7pm.

    We are meeting at the Asian Beer Cafe (in Melbourne Central) -

    3/211 La Trobe St Melbourne VIC 3000 (03) 9663 5486 ,

    www.asianbeercafe.com.au.

    Dinners costs between $4 to $10 and it is at Melbourne Central so it is very easy to get to by train.

    After dinner is karaoke.

    More details at www.meetup//pinoys-in-melbourne.

    Let me know if you are coming so I can book a spot for you at our table which will be under the name of Monette.

    Salamat.
