    buhayin ito bakit aussie?

    currently palapit na ako sa AUSSIE dreams namin nang maganak ko.

    question: ngayong 2015 ganito pa din kaya ang tingin nang karamihan na andito sa thread na ito?

    pinili ko AUSSIE kasi kada titingnan ko opportunity para sa career ko dito naeexcite ako sa ganda nang pasok ko naisip ko magpapayoff lahat nang hirap ko dito sa SG tapos sagaran sa sahod

    ngayon naman parang pag andiyan na riding off the sunset nalang ako gang matupad ko mga pangarap ko para sa kid ko.

    lagi ko naiisip yung opportunity na magkaroon nang sariling property na ako talaga bibili.
    mga lugar na sa postcards ko lang nakikita mapuntahan ko na.

    kamusta na kaya karamihan nang andito? : )

    I haven't lost everything except my mind...

    @thegreatiam15 kasi lagi ako rejected sa PR application dito sa singapore bro. hehe and Investment ko sa pamilya ko na mey chance sila maging citizen sa isang first world country. Sa mga nababalitaan ko masama sa pinas, natatakot ako sa mga magiging anak ko pag dun sila lumaki. Iniisip ko lang na magkakaanak ako na babae tapos magaaral sa university, delikado!

    Ako naman mag share:

    For me tinupad ko ang matagal ng pangarap ng parents ko hehe. May mga relatives kasi kami jan around 80's sila nag migrate so my parents also tried, nung time na yun interview lang ang pag apply. Unfortunately na reject kami 1yr old pa lang ata ako nun or wala pa. Kwento ng erpats ko may tinanong daw sa kanya about sa makina ng sasakyan na nagkamali siya sagutin yun tingin niya ang reason kaya kami na reject. So yun na nga, anyway yung mga kamaganak namin bumibisita sila ng pinas once every 5yrs, madalas xmas tas sa bahay sila nag iistay so i get to meet everyone. Sa tuwing uuwi sila lagi kaming namamasyal punta sa dagat, mall, shopping, kain sa masarap so naisip ko nung bata ako ang sarap siguro tumira sa oz kasi dami nila pera hehe. Dun na natatak sa isip ko na someday I'll try my luck na subukan mag apply at ituloy ung naudlot na dreams ng parents ko. To cut the story short nag work ako sa SG para makaipon at pagandahin na din ang exp and resume. And last year after 28yrs of dreaming i got my visa hehe. I'm getting married this december and next year January ang big move ko, hopefully everything will be fine at makakita sana agad ng work.

    @filipinacpa oh cge sagot kona pamasahe mo..chos! :D

    kung tolerable na traffic sa pinas and 'mejo' worth it na ung tax na binbayad mo maybe well consider going home pro for now prang wlapa direction hehe

    ok lang yan rejection.. d wrong ones will lead u to d right one dw. parang destiny lng. so apply lng ng apply :D sana mkapag comment ung mga nka settle na sa au kung anong 'magandang' bagay na ibigay ng au sa knila since they migrated pra mas ma inspire pa mga intending migrants. and of course d not so nice ones na nangyari pra ma leverage ung expectations ng iba :D hindi rin madali mag DIY ng application ...pro f may hugot inspiration kang nababasa dito sa forum nkakagaan ng feeling :D

    keepntouch sis! ikaw na pinka active sa forum d past weeks :D push mo yan..sarap ng feeling nkakapag share ng info here.

    Wow it's nice to know that the thread I created last 2013 is still alive :) I would say Australia is really a great place for family. If you are Single nothing beats Singapore when it comes to savings! I can still recall my tax there was really just a pinch of salt compared here in Australia. Ang bilis mag ipon sa SG. hehehe

    good to hear from sir na nag create sa thread :D
    well each country has its pros and cons. depende sa priorities and like u said mas malaki maiipon f single sa SG.. and f may family mas dadami ang need i consider like most of us here. for someone like me na may family to bring and ang main reason is for a better place to live, stay and grow old (probably) then i trust your feedback like most of those who are residents/citizens na in this forum..

    Mabuhay! :D

    Thing is ganito - sa Singapore kasi because we have this mentality na very low tax, very cheap food, very cheap to travel abroad (kahit mag Europe kaya at least every 2 years) - we tend to overspend...

    Now enter Melbourne in 2013 - we arrived here na may baon but walang work. As we don't want to dip into our savings, we learnt how to save like cook our own meals, buy only when special, etc...

    Did we save more here or in Singapore? I think so... :)

    But life is good here! But as I have said many times, I still miss Singapore. I am more at home there than in Pinas.

    Hello po sa lahat. Tanong ko rin to kasi im still deciding kung saan talaga kami mag aapply to migrate, canada or au. Nasa manitoba kasi yung mga relatives ni hubby and walang bayad ang application, need lang ng show money. Sa isang banda mas practical at may mag ga guide pa samin. Sa australia naman, feeling ko mas magiging happy ako dahil sa mas ok ang klima and wala akong iisiping in laws hehe. Yun nga lang kailangan namin ng mas malaking budget and start talaga kami from scratch dahil wala kami kahit isang kamag anak dun. Another factor im considering is parang mas mahirap makapagdala ng kamag anak sa australia? Pls let me know what you guys think :)
