    Hello po. Sa mga nagBM po na nagquarantine, paano po kayo nakapag order ng sim? Meron po bang naka plan na?

    Nag order kami ng Aus sim nung anjan pa kami sa sg, to be activated pagdating sa aus. Pero di naman gumana nung dumating kami Aus. Merong mga free optus sim sa airport, nakalagay lang sa mga baskets. Kumuha lang kami tas prepaid sya top-up na lang (by apps)..Then eventually pina-port in lang namin sa postpaid since nagamit na namin na number un para sa TFN, Medicare etc. Port-in lang, kay hubby sa telstra postpaid tas sakin optus pa din prepaid to postpaid, same numbers.

    Meron akong nabasa isa ding member na ang ginawa is nag order sa Circles tas pinadeliver sa hotel. Hope this helps :)

    Wow very informative po ito. Buti pwede imaintain yung prepaid at postpaid number hehe salamat po! Dun na lang po siguro ako kukuha sa mga basket hehehe

    Ano po mas mura/magandang service na telco?

    Hmmm di ko pa alam ung mga service, kinuha ko optus plan na $49 tas 60Gb, si hubby yung $45 for 40Gb..Pero di mashadong mabilis dto ang internet like sg kaya halos di namin nagagamit lahat ng data per month hehe..Sim plan lang pla ito ha kaya anytime pede mo i-cut plan mo.Meron ding mga plans na may kasamang phone at lock-in period. Ung sa house na internet, Telstra kami dahil sa work from home. Nung naka TPG kami sa unang pinag airbnb namin, ang hina ng signal kaya nung nakakuha kami ng house, Telstra na,medyo pricey lang sya compared sa iba pero ok naman ang signal so far.

    Good day!

    Meron po ba ditong naka experience na nagchange ng address while waiting for the visa grant?
    Ongoing po kasi kami ng 491 visa application namin, kaso nagchange po ako ng address kasi kinuha po ako ng wife ko dito sa UAE. Philippines po kasi ang naka address sa visa application namin upon lodgement.

    Maraming Salamat po

    Sa mga nag big move po or yung mga malapit na mag big move, ask ko lang kung may makokontak ba ako sa victoria regarding hotel quarantine nila? Ito kasi ang situation namin:

    Magkaiba kami ng flight ni hubby. Pero same date dadating, same airline, magkaiba lang ng time. Pwede kaya negotiate na same hotel room kami para di na 3k each? Assuming na may quarantine pa by january.

    Thank you.

    Hi cranky, actually natanong ko to sa NSW govt. Kasi parang ganyan din yung plan namin sana, same date pero different timing. Sabi nila hindi daw pwede kasi pre-assigned yung hotels. Pero last July pa eto, situation has changed naman. You can ask them. I'll PM you nlng yung email content. Medjo mahaba kasi. hope this helps.

    Hi po. Yan din ang dilemma namin, Dec 12 naman po flight namin from SG. Ang ginawa ko po, nagbook ako ng airbnb for 1wk. Tapos dun na lang kami maghahanap ng unit within that week. Kaso baka sarado ang real estate offices dahil holidays. Kaya extend na lang ng airbnb pag di nakahanap. 375dol/wk po yung nahanap ko. Nagbabantay pa rin po ako sa mga facebook page kung may rooms to rent, refundable naman yung sa airbnb hehe

    Ung sa quarantine, ung day of arrival, Day 0 ito. Like sa case namin, dumating kami Sep 1, 10am sa Sydney. Ang check-out namin is Sep 15 sa quarantine.

    Nag rent muna kami ng airbnb for temporary stay for 1 month ang ginawa namin (pero in actual within 2 weeks sa airbnb, nakakuha na kami ng rental unit). After ng quarantine, dun kami pumunta sa airbnb. While in airbnb, naghanap na kami ng rental units sa Real Estate at Domain na sites. I suggest na i-view nyo ung place kasi ibang iba ang pics at actual. Honestly, maraming nakaka disappoint na units hehe. During viewing, if interested kayo, pede nyo sabihn sa agent, sasabhan kayo how to proceed. Meron ditong 1form na sinasabi, upload dun mga docs tas dun mag a-apply sa unit na nagustuhan. Depends kung kayo ang maseselect ng owner/agency, icocontact nila kayo if ever kayo ang na-approve..

    @jakibantiles

    Guys, try nyo negotiate sa Airbnb nyo if nag book kayo, kasi wala din masyadong booking ngayong pandemic. Kaya willing sila mag negotiate for weekly rates. Ganyan kasi yung sa situation ko. Maganda yung na book ko na airbnb malapit lang sa CBD, mas convenient sa job hunting. Napansin ko rin sa calendar nila na walang booking for months. So nag negotiate ako sa manager for a good weekly rate. Ayun nag agree din sila. Advantage din kasi wala nang bond. Nag aadvance lang ako every fortnight. So pwede lumipat anytime.

    Also, nag apply din ako for studio unit. Actually na approve din sya. Basta meron ka lang mapakita na balance sa bank account. Proof na ma sustain mo yung rent. Pero di ko tinuloy, mas Ok kasi yung airbnb location at same lang yung rent.

    Hope this helps. :-)

    Mukhang closed pa rin ang melbourne for international flights. Ano kaya mangyari sa January. 😒

    Kya nga sis kc mtigas tlga ata si Premiere ayaw nya buksan ang Victoria. I'm thinkin kng mg sydney kmi kc waived na actually un quarantine fee nmin for Sydney kc ng email kmi sa NSW revenue supposedly nun Sept flight n sana nmin sydney pro bump off na nman kmi via cathay. Ngaun nirebook nmn kmi Melb pero March 1 pa. Antagal sobra :'(

    Hala sis ang tagal 😒 ang hirap nun march 1 pa. Wala na daw available kahit january? Let's just hope mag increase ang cap by december. Para may chance pa kayo magrebook for an earlier flight.

    Noted po. Magkano po rate ng nakuha niyong airbnb after nego?

    check nyo po mam online kung kano rates usually for renting, saan po ba kayo ulit mag-stay if ever? here kung nasaan po kami in Brisbane, pag less that 30mins away from the City, expect at least $300 per week payment for a 2 Bedroom and 1 Toilet + Garage parking space type of apartment :)

    all the best po!

    Yung pinakamurang airbnb po na nakita ko halos 375/wk sa Bankstown, Syd. Baka 1-2wks lang kami dun. Mga 300-350 din po nakikita kong rate ng flat doon kaso madalang ang furnished tapos di naman sumasagot sa email yung mga agent hehe Nababasa ko parang mahirap pag sa simula flat agad kasi malaki din yung ibang bills. Mas preferred po namin room muna sana hehehe masakit din kasi sa bulsa yung private insurance :D

    tried to search for you as well, found the below:

    medyo mahirap nga sila sumagot lalo na kapag wala ka pa dito sa AU :(

    mas ok si AirBNB palagay ko at least wala kayo need bayaran na bond for it:
