    Hi there mga kababayans! I am new and have just registered on this website. Glad to know na may ganito palang forum ang mga pinoy sa Adelaide. :) Ask ko lng po baka may available kaung room or may marerecommend kaung room jan sa Adelaide? May mga websites na po akong nakita sa Adelaide na ngrerent ng rooms pero mas prefer ko sana kung pinoy na rn ang makakasama ko.I have just received my PR approval and plan ko pong mg-migrate by August, in case lng po, may alam kau, it would be a big help! :) Many thanks!

    Reply to @adelaide_boi:

    Hello adelaide_boi! Ung rent mo na 15aud, bale ng-share ka ng room sa iba? How much kaya if solo ung room. Plan ko jan n lng dn muna mgstay para makatipid while looking for work. Pano pala ung address mo nung ng paregister ka for medicare, tax, etc. jan mo muna inaddress? Then pa-change address n lng kapag nakakita na ng permanent accommodation?
    Thanks in advance sa reply! :)

    to all new migrants, kapag maghahanap kayo ng room hanap lang kayo ng bandang north, east or south. Sa west mahirap ang public transpo.

    @chicken nabangit sakin ng dati kong landlord na pinoy may time na pumupunta sila sa adelaide hindi ko lang alam pano yun malalaman.

    may nakapost dito flat for rent sa eastern suburbs, dun ako dati ngrent highly recommended for new

    gud day to all...my family is planning to relocate in adelaide,dahil based on our internet research,one of the liveable cities to live & work(housing etc)..wala kaming kamag-anak or friends in adelaide/australia and most of out info are from internet sources/data lang...
    1) what are the nice nice suburbs in adelaide ?---esp with small kids at school (12 yo,9 yo and 2 yo)

    2) where's a good store to shop for affordable furnitures & appliances?

    3) what's the best site to go online when looking for a place to rent (3 bdroom house)?is it as good as going to agents?

    4)how much is the modest weekly living cost in adelaide for a young family with 3 kids?

    thank you

    Reply to @bambina: addition: what's the cheapest telco(phone & broadband) in adelaide? =)me TFC?PINOY cable din ba?how much...thanks

    Reply to @sohc: hi..landline & broadband na ba yan?is that the cheapest rate?

    Reply to @Ren: is the rent in the CBD expensive?we're thinking of renting a 3 bedroom house for t

    Hi Bambina just to answer your questions

    1. Eastern suburbs such as Newton is a good place. This is where I used to rent but because my work is in South West, I'm now living in the west side. Public transport in Eastern suburbs is very nice. I'm impress with the normal bus that goes to a railway looks like transformer lol. 15-20 mins to CBD via Paradise Interchange.

    2. Kmart has the cheapest appliances, hands down :)

    3. realestate.com.au but if you're a new migrant it would be tough to get a place using this site because of the 100 security points requirement. I've attached a sample application form explaining how you will meet the 100 points. http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a9/ronald3_16/rent.jpg Adelaide gumtree is your other option.

    4. Based on my experience last two months ago when I was looking for a three bedroom house. The cheapest that I saw is around $270/week (unfurnished), others are around $300 up.

    5. Dodo unlimited internet = $59/month including phone line rental. Super fast download! TFC is $50 I guess that's what my brother told me. I just used my computer to watch live channel 2 or 7 or if I want a bigger screen I can just connect my laptop to an LCD.

    I hope this has been informative for you. Welcome to SA.

    Cheers :)
