    Hello po. Silent reader for the last two years. Magtatanong lang kung meron may experience sa plan namin for BM this year.

    Paano po ako ma-ka-class kung pupunta ako sa AU earlier than planned pero may remote work pa din sa PH? Any idea kung paano ma-t-treat sa tax at kung employed or employed?

    Salamat sa mga sagot or kung may marerefer na pwede makasagot - di din kasi masagot ng DHA nung tumawag ako.

    Hello Kamusta na kayo? :smile:

    Goodluck sa lahat ng mga mag BM kapatid! Praying for a smooth transition and less stressful flight to Au :)
    For all of us that planned for BM for 2020, this is not what we have anticipated at all - pero this is the situation now and let’s focus on the fact na we are 1 step closer to fulfilling our dreams, and that is to live in Australia.

    I’m just giving an extra dose of confidence boost because I know a lot of you are stressing out.
    Kapit lang mga kapatid, this is it! :smile:

    Lahat ng hirap, at stress - it’s all worth it pag nandito na kayo. You’ll know what I mean soon :smile:

    Ingat sa lahat, and stay protected.

    Just an update for those planning their BM soon:
    All returning travellers flying into New South Wales will be charged $3000 for their 14-day stay in hotel quarantine from next week, regardless of where they live.
    Travellers will be charged $3000, while additional adults within the same family will be charged $1000, starting from 12.01am on Saturday July 18.
    Children aged three and over will be charged $500, while children under three will remain free of charge.

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed overseas arrivals would be reduced to 4000 each week, less than half the current number, in a bid to focus more resources on tackling community transmission on home soil.

    PTE Writing Tips

    For writing essay I used E2 language format and applying what I learned from Ielts. Sa intro, sa 1st sentence ni restate ko lang yung question using my own words. Then sa 2nd sentence if one sided lang yung question, I give summary of the reasons ( 2 reasons only). Example, if ang essay is about importance of computers (one sided), eto 2nd sentence ko. Computers are valuable resources as they (1st reason) aid in learning and are (2nd reason) used to communicate with others. Then sa 3rd sentence sasabihin ko para pampahaba-- In this essay, I shall discuss my point of view by giving points and examples about the topic.

    Then sa 2nd paragraph, elaborate ko na ang 1St reason. Mga 2 sentences na magsupport sa 1st reason, like if yung 1st reason ko is aid in learning, expand ko ang topic by answering how computers aid in learning,etc. Usually yung reason mo convert mo by asking how, what, when, or who. Tapos sa 3rd sentence, I state examples. Pwede ka din mag add pa ng 4th sentence parang isummarize mo lang ang 2nd paragraph.

    Sa 3rd paragraph discuss naman ang 3rd reason same sa ginawa sa 2nd par.

    4Th paragraph 1st sentence conclusion, then 2nd sentence recommendation.

    If 2 sided naman yung intro pwede mo gamitin yung nasa template like kina Heprex na samples. Then yung 2nd par yung kabilang side, then yung 3rd paragraph yung other side. Tapos same last paragraph.

    If medyo nahihirapan ka sa mga ideas, research ka dito sa forum ng mga recent topics. Tapos based dun sa topic reasearch ka anong pwedeng maging points and reasons para may idea ka na ano ilalagay mo sa essay.

    Ang key talaga sa writing is dapat marami ka ideas. If nahihirapan ka mag construct ng idea try to research as much as possible. Google mo yung mga common or recent topics on pte writing tapos may mga sample questions dun,, then research mo ano possible answers para sa actual exam may idea kana ano isasagot. Tapos dpat familiarize mo mga connectors (like moreover, therefore, for instance, etc) kasi mas mataas ang grade kapag medyo complex ang sentence na ginagamit mo kesa simple sentences lang.

    For summarize written text strategy ko is to first get ano main topic. Then analyze what important points were given, may nangyari ba? If meron ano ang nangyari, kelan nangyari? ano at para kanino ang purpose? Usually kasi sa mga paragraphs naka detail lang pero yung point lang naman dun is parang dinedescribe lang yung main topic. If you can answer who/what, when, how and why about the topic pwede mo na pagdugtungin yung ideas mo thru connectors and form a sentence. If you will have multiple paragraphs, summarize mo muna per paragraph then summarize mo ulit lahat in one sentence

    Another tip also in writing as much as possible do not repeat the same words. If you dont have much stored knowledge about synonyms okay lang. Practice and Research is the key. Kaya malaki ang help sa akin yung pag research sa mga common or recent topics kasi while practicing pwede akong mghanap ng synonyms then mas madali ko syang ma recall sa actual exam kasi nagawa ko na sya before. Tapos if meron kayong word na ma encounter na parang hirap kayo mag elaborate, google nyo din anong synonym or phrases na pwedeng same meaning ng word. Share ko yung nilista kong mga synonyms na possible na magagamit sa mga essay kasi minsan these are the topics commonly asked.

    Just sharing a bit of what has happened in the past few weeks.

    Excited! This is how we felt as the BM-day was approaching! I think everyone here feels the same way!

    We were supposed to fly on July 4 with Emirates Airlines but for some reason, Emirates postponed it on July 6 after a few days of booking that date back in April. At the time, the change didn't affect us since it was just a matter of waiting for 2 more days.

    Then the somewhat expected turn of events happened, on July 4 at exactly 7:00 AM 48+ hours before ETD, an Emirates staff called us to inform us that the flight has been cancelled and that we need to rebook our flights again to a new date. Obviously, we were left bummed and took us a few hours to recover from this news. Later that day, that's when we also started hearing news about the 50 passengers per plane limit mandated by the NSW government. That's when it really sank in that things were not in our control, and that we really need to rebook our flights to dates after July 17, as per the Emirates staff. So, we finally rebooked it on the 20th July as this was the only closest and available date after July 6.

    Wala lang, just sharing lang po pam pawala sa boredom. 8 days to go, here we go!

    Hi @chabawamba, ask lang po namin ano pong line of work nyo?

    Hi everyone, we just got invited via Visa 491 pero one of our biggest concerns is finding work in SA. My wife is a medical technologist and I'm in IT.

    Ask po sana kami ng help and advice, should we stay and wait it out or should we go for it?

    Thank you so much sa inyo :-)

  • johnnydapperjohnnydapper AustraliaPosts: 173Member

    go for it. maswerte kayo nainvite pa din. ung ida hirap. pagdadaanan tlga ang paghahanap ng Job. dumating ako dito sa SA june 15 then nagquarantine. mas mataas ang chance to get a job pag nandito na kasi pede kn agad magrequest ng police checks and etc.

    Au mobile number and address din tinitignan nila. nung nasa SG/Pinas pa ako, apply ako ng apply pero wala man lng akong nakuhang invitation for interview pero nung nandito na ako kahit papano meron na. ang hirap lang kasi na walang local experience. yun lng tlga disadvantage. basta kelangan lng tlga ng mahabang patience. soon magiging normal din ang lahat.
