Sorry for the down-time kanina, I've sorted it out, everything should be back to normal.
Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family.

    Vodafone $59 iPhone plan gamit ko then may load na $500 + 1GB.
    $0.53/minute calls to Philippines.

    Most people that I know used Vodafone that's why I've chosen it.

    @JanChloe & donking
    Welcome to Adelaide. It's hard to find a job offshore, mostly they will entertain when your here but there's no harm on trying since others can even get employer sponsorship visa.

    18 months to go for my two years bond in SA.

    which part in adelaide is a great place to settle for a young family?i'd love to hear feedback from anyone about the suburb u have lived or currently residing..have heard of stories online na there are few places not really nice (?) ie elizabeth (?),some parts of salisbury (?) ,etc...

    @bambina those place are quite far from Adelaide. Actually the CBD is what they call Adelaide.
    You can easily identify if the place is far by just looking at the postcode. Basically, postcode with numbers 5100 up are far places. Public transport is not that good it will take you more than an hour to go in Adelaide CBD.

    I've attached Google maps. The highlighted red square is the CBD area.

    @donking
    I've met some Filipino communities here and some are religious groups which I find very common in any state in Oz.

    As of now winter kaya malamig nag drop one time to 1 degree but usually 6-10 degree every morning.

    Hello po musta sa lahat? I'm so glad to find this website. Ngayon lang po ako nagjoin sa forum. matagal na po akong naghahanap ng Filipino community dito sa Adelaide. My brother and his wife and daughter will be joining me here in Adelaide in September so I am very excited for them. Would be really nice to meet many Pinoys here in Adelaide. I just want to share to everyone that the Cathedral Community of St Francis Xavier Cathedral in the city will be holding a special luncheon on September 23 at 12:30pm. It would be a BYO shared lunch. I've just learned this when I attended holy mass there. Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish from their own cultural background. I am planning to attend and bring my family there and hopefully maraming Pinoy na umattend at makilala. Sana magkaroon din ng gathering ang mga Pinoys dito sa Adelaide. I hope that this luncheon gathering would be a good start. Attend po tayo para naman di lang dito sa forum tayo nag uusap usap kundi para magkitakita na din at magkakilakilala sa personal. :)

    Hi kabayans,
    we are planning to apply for state sponsored visa in SA. Tatanong lang sana ako kung kumusta ang demand for software engineers dyan?, C#, PHP, Perl, Python ang skillset ko po.
    Salamat. ;)
