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 🙂
