    Woah.. That's harsh. :shock:

    But I think some Singaporean companies are obsessed with everything Western. So, if you come in as an expatriate, you will earn a lot more than the locals. :mrgreen:

    Sad, but true. Your citizenship is worth more than your abilities. :mrgreen:

    Tell her, "Resistance is futile." :wicked:

    1. Oh, how long have you been in Perth? Doesn't sound like you have stayed there long. :think:

    2. Yeah, I heard from my friends that Australia can be extraordinarily boring, especially after 5pm. :think:

    Sure, I'm always there around December/January. We can meet up for a boozing session :beer:

    Me thinks it's slightly more complicated than simply the citizenship status. There's also the fact that I'm shirking my "duty" to do National Service. I've heard that it immediately lowers your status in the eyes of many employers (and possibly some colleagues as well).

    Bah, if only girl/relationship issues were so easy to solve. :roll:

    1. Only since January 2003.

    2. Nah the other capital cities like Melbourne and Sydney are fairly vibrant at night. It's just the quieter ones like Perth, Adelaide, etc. :roll:
    I actually had a friend from KL who came here to study with his brother. After 1 year he packed up and went back to Malaysia. He just couldn't take it anymore. :?

    That's only if they know you are a Singaporean. If you can keep up the Aussie accent and let them assume you are a true blue Aussie, you may get away with all the perks of an expatriate. :wicked:

    Hehe.. Don't give up. Keep it up. :thumb:

    I know, that's what I'm thinking too.

    Thanks for the encouragement :) really can't beat Malaysia/Singapore for food. There isn't much to say about Australian food. :shifty: It's actually quite a fast food culture here because oddly enough, that's the cheapest way to eat out :p

    I would NEVER stoop down to that level :snooty:

    1. Answered already...I listen to bands that range from soft rock to alternative to punk to thrash metal. As long as there's a guitar in it, I'll give it a listen :mrgreen:

    2. Love has so many forms...can't just lump all of it together into one category. But I think it's simply caring for someone, just on different levels for different people.
  12. siddiq

    siddiq Newbie

    interesting......... :think: :think: :think:

    Okay, enough about Singapore... What do you LIKE in Australia? :mrgreen:

    Do you travel out of Perth? Or have you only been staying in Perth?
  14. Papercut

    Papercut Newbie

    I remembered something else that I would like to see on ARP...

    The return of Maximus_Detritus! :haha:

    That's a very hard question for me to answer. Interpret that however you will. :p
    Oh! The education system is pretty slack :p That's one good thing. I'll let you know when I have thought of something else :haha:

    I've been to other parts of Australia on holiday...but mostly when I was too young to remember and/or form an opinion. Haven't been to Melbourne yet though... :think:

    As for Western Australia itself, I took a drive down to the Southern regions with my parents during the last Uni break. As I said, I'm a city boy, so IMO it was a bloody waste of time to drive for hours on end with nothing much to see at the destination. But hey, it's not like there's a whole lot of more interesting things to do in the actual Perth area :whistle:

    Hey you guys are letting me off pretty easily eh :lol:

    ROTFL! Only because I'm stuck with a lousy dial-up connection. :wall:

    Would you be able to survive without broadband??? :wall: What are you using anyway?
  17. Papercut

    Papercut Newbie

    I only got broadband in October last year :shifty:
    256/64 kbps, 12GB download limit per month which I have not even come close to exceeding.

    So yes, I probably could survive if I really had to go back to dialup :p
  18. Adrian Wong

    Adrian Wong Da Boss Staff Member

    Dang... You have no idea how much I'm suffering on dial-up! :doh:

    How much does your broadband connection cost you?
  19. Papercut

    Papercut Newbie

    Hm.....A$50 a month, I think :think: Telecomms services are generally quite expensive here.
  20. Adrian Wong

    Adrian Wong Da Boss Staff Member

    Wow.. That's not cheap. :think:

    BTW, any pictures of your house, family, etc? Or pictures of Perth in general? :mrgreen:
