    Dyan din kami nagsisimba ng 11am then straight to Central Market.

    Share ko lang tomorrow's destination, on site work at Pt. Augusta & Pt. Pirie. I've seen a lot of places here in SA though parang wala akong makitang may wow factor unlike when I was in Sydney. I still have 18 mos bond left, enjoy SA muna.

    tiyaga lang talaga maghanap. Yung wife ko din natagalan bago makakuha ng work, depende din kasi sa job ads. Sa ngayon nakakuha na wife ko ng almost full time sa isang take away. Happy na, lalo na di kayang maearn sa pinas yung sinasahod niya kahit casual job. :)

    Kamusta naman po dyan sa Adelaide? Saan pwede pang pumunta aside sa Rundle mall?
  • sohcsohc SydneyPosts: 249Member
    @stoneheart SA museum and river torrens (2 to 5 mins walk from rundle mall). Glenelg take a tram. Not so many tourist attractions here in SA.

    @sohc thanks very much for the info. Btw, i heard there's Marion mall? Is it big(by adelaide standard) and modern? Tnx again.

    Excited at may halong kaba na kami ni misis...we will be flying this coming october and hopefully makakita kaagad ng work. My spouse is the principal, under 475 visa. QA naman ang background nya. Ako naman business admin. Meron akong 2nd course- BS Nursing kaso nga lang di ko pa na practice ang nursing ko dito sa pinas so i have to take further studies there. I am just wondering lang rin kung anong school sa Adelaide na pwedeng mag accept ng bridging program na wala pang nursing job experience. Baka lang po meron kayong alam. (pinoy au peeps).

    We are in manila, right now. Stressful lalo na ang traffic situation dito...Im sure makarelax relax ng kaunti pag nandyan na kami...hehehhe!

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the moderators and contributors of this site. Malaking tulong po kayo sa amin!

    Hopefully, magkita- kita tayo mga taga pinoy au sa Adelaide!


  • sohcsohc SydneyPosts: 249Member
    @stoneheart
    yup that's Westfield Marion. Isang beses pa lang ako nakapunta dun and I was shocked with the car park para akong nasa greenhills pahirapan makahanap ng parking slot. Westfield is parang SM satin sa pinas pero mas prefer ko Westfield Westlakes since malapit lang samin and less crowded.

    Based sa nakilala ko nurse dito you can only do bridging course if you have nursing experience. If not, you can check nursing graduate course at Flinders University which is a 2 years course though under 475 visa like me it is quite expensive. Balak dapat dati ng wife ko yan.

    Sa ngayon looking forward ako mag december. Drive from Adelaide to Sydney then fly to Singapore then to Manila. 1 month vacation Yahoo!

    May bagong airline which is called scoot airlines ang mura ng airfare, sister company ng sg airlines.

    Reply to @stoneheart: when are u flying to adelaide?balak ko rin by end of october..which part in adelaide ?all the best to you...
  • stoneheartstoneheart SydneyPosts: 8Member
    @sohc all right, glad to hear that, at least malaki laki rin pala ang mall. Its true malaki talaga ang enrolment fees lalo na pag di pa PR...tsk, tsk... Might consider other options in the mean time. Thanks for the info. Good to know may scoots airline na so marami ng options for us to fly either pabalik ng pinas or fly to other countries. Speaking of airline flights, emirates will fly to adelaide soon! It will be this coming november. On top of that, singapore airlines will increase their number of flights! This means Adelaide is on the right track making its progress. And what more our local airline cebu pac not sure about airphil though, will increase their fleet targetting Oz flights in the next 3 years. Another option right now sa ating mga kababayan is Air asia they have flights to Oz too, pero clark ang baba. Whoaaa, land trip to Sydney???? Ilang hours yan? Correct me if im wrong adelaide to melb will take you 8hrs. Mukhang enjoy ang road trip na yan...hahaha! Time to prepare your looonngg music playlist! Kwentuhan mo kami anong mga experiences mo on the road...:)

    @bambina, hi! 2nd week of october ang lipad to Oz. Might stay in Magil. Its about 15 to 20 mins by bus to city. Good luck to you also!

    As of this writing, its been 10 straight days Manila and near by provinces and some parts of Luzon are experiencing heavy rains...flood is everywhere. Let us pray for the safety of our kababayans.

    Reply to @stoneheart: that's great,u must be counting the days!i can't seem to fix my mind yet but hopefully end of oct or first week of novembr...tc everyone in luzon!

    Reply to @sohc: hope u dont mind asking about water supply/potability in adelaide..read & heard that adelaide is one of the driest city & wter supply seems to be a problem (true?)..does it taste good ?
  • stoneheartstoneheart SydneyPosts: 8Member
    @bambina u bet! Hahaha! Decide na para maka avail ng promo fare...hehehehe. Cheers! :D
  • sohcsohc SydneyPosts: 249Member
    @stonehearts may nabasa ako na 12 hours drive adelaide to sydney. Kaya yan lalo na long straight driving lang with cruise control relax na relax lang ang driving. Next time one way drive na lang yan pag natapos na ko sa bond ko dito sa SA hehe. Tama ka, melbourne is closer to adelaide.

    Time is so fast five months na ko sa work on 19 of August :)

    @bambina
    never heard of any water problems here in SA.

    @sohc ayos yan!!! Time flies talaga. Kami naman maghahanap ng work dyan and explore SA. =)

    @bambina SA state has strict guidelines in water conservation or even victoria. Dont know with other states. Pati mag car wash at your own backyard minsan bawal. Whats good about SA is that they have a desalination plant which means they have other source of water supply aside from getting it from murray river.

    Reply to @emjdee: You can submit the TFN application online, I just did mine the other day.
    Here's the link: http://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/content.aspx?doc=/content/38760.htm&pc=001/002/001/008/002&mnu=1106&mfp=001/002&st=&cy=1
    Di ko lang sure how long it will take but in case you haven't received it in 28 days, you can ring them to check. Once it's done, they'll mail it to the postal address na binigay mo during the application.
    I'm still waiting for mine to be posted, probably not too soon. :)
