I thought of creating a thread for people who have personal experience of what they like about Australia. Few things I can recall momentarily are:

1 - disciplined drivers - I am working in Middle east, and drivers here mostly are reckless. kaya nun nag visit ako yun ang una kong na notice. isang beses lng yata ako naka dinig ng nag blow ng horn.

2 - people are very helpful - nun namasyal kami tig isa kami ng stroller ni mrs. One insatance may elevator na not working so nag hagdan kami. hawak bata sa isang kamay at stroller sa isang kamay. ako nauna so kaya. sir Mrs. hirap tpos may babae (puti) paakyat ng hagdan she stopped ang helped my wife with the stroller.
