From Malaysia to Sydney

 

If it’s free, it’s advice; if you pay for it, it’s counseling; if you can use either one, it’s a miracle. Jack Adams

Dear Ms. Emily,

I have recently received my grant of permanent residency to Australia.  I am currently living in Kuala Lumpur, and plan to move to Sydney as soon as possible where I have friends who will initially take me in.  I am really excited about the prospect, and I would like to do the move right. I wonder if you could help me determine the right time to move, and the best way to get the right job for me? Should I fly directly from Malaysia to Sydney, or should I fly out from Manila where my parents are based? – Frankly Baffled

Dear Frankly Baffled,

Congratulations on your PR, well done.

To answer the first question, June to August is the height of winter while December to February will be summer. The time in between, I reckon, will be a pleasant period to do your move and job hunt as well.

A fast and efficient way to hunt for a job is through www.seek.com.au . May I add to wait for the job to come first before making the final decision as to where to stay permanently.

To answer your next question, I think it is more prudent to fly directly from Malaysia to Sydney that from Manila. If using the Manila airport, you will be required to attend a pre-departure seminar (PDOS) before being allowed to fly out which will not be necessary when flying from KL. (More information about the PDOS here www.cfo.gov.ph .)

May I suggest to visit the parents on another occasion, perhaps taking a separate trip before the big move.

Hope this helped.  Best wishes on your new adventure.

Hello from Dubai side

 

 

Hello fellow readers of this blog. Im Chesca and I will be a sort of guest poster on this blog. I do not consider myself an expert in anything really, but like most people I have seen places and gone through a lot of things in life, and I would like to help share some of the things that I have encountered as well. Like may be telling you which path is easier in a fork on the road.

For the first question that I will attempt to answer, how did you manage to go to Dubai?

sea-beach-holiday-vacation-mediumIt’s not really a spectacular story. It’s quite simple actually. I have just quit my previous work in the Philippines, when I say just I mean, about approximately 3 months and my Aunt who was currently living in dubai visited us and saw my lazy bum playing computer games. She told my mum that it would be good for me try it there. Look for a job and live in a new exotic country. And that’s where it all started, they got me a visa, and I flew on the next flight out with them.

 

It took me a while to find my first job, and then the company downsized, and had to let me go, so I jumped on another job. I had in total 3 jobs when I was living there.

I can say that it was really an eye opening experience for me. One of the good things about living in the Middle east is that you are literally in the middle of everything, I was given a great opportunity to do a bit of traveling when I was there. And after living alone for a while, have enjoyed the wonders of cooking and baking. So, you kind of know where this is going. My articles will mainly focus on travel, and food.
