What’s turning me off from applying for a PR in Australia?

What’s turning me off from applying for PR in Australia?

Just a few points:

1. It takes a long time to actually get an answer on whether or not you get your PR. During the waiting period, it’ll be very hard to get a permanent/full-time employment anywhere.

2. You need to work in your nominated industry for a certain period of time. God knows I’m not too keen in being in the accounting profession. I was actually contemplating jobs related to the finance industry (trading, financial planning, and etc.) before proceeding to flying.

3. Unless you get a good-paying job, things can be rather expensive over here.

Unemployment exists in Australia? Huh? Really?

I was talking to a person the other day and he asked me about my plans after graduation. I then replied:

“Oh, perhaps I’ll return to Malaysia after uni. Maybe I won’t apply for the permanent residency. You know, it seems really hard to get a job in Australia these days. Even Rio Tinto (a mining company) laid off hundreds of their people a few days ago. Unemployment rate is well through the roof right now. I don’t think I’ll be able to get a job here”.

To which he replied:

“Huh?? Unemployment exists in Australia??”.

I was gobsmacked…….

Moral of the story: Watch more TV 🙂

The end.

Costs of running a car in Malaysia (Should I call Australia or Malaysia as home?)

In making the decision to either continue on staying in Australia or return to Malaysia, I have got to consider a number of things. One of them is to look at the costs of running and maintaining a car in both countries.

In this instance, we’ll look at a Proton Saga 1.3. As I have no experience whatsoever in maintaining a car in Malaysia, I have to use a lot of assumptions here. So, if you have much more accurate figures, do share with all of us yeah?

Should I work in Malaysia or Australia? (Should I call Australia or Malaysia as home?)

The dreaded moment will soon arrive. I’ll be graduating hopefully by the end of this year. Questions upon questions of what’s going to happen and what am I going to do arise.

Before, I was so certain of getting my Permanent Residency in Australia, setting up my abode over there, get a job/set up a business, then only come back to Malaysia. Now however, with all the mumbo-jumbo about the financial crisis and other what-not, I am now not so sure anymore.
