  1. Thank you, I thought so as well...
  2. Hi, I'm writing this on behalf a friend. A friend residing in Australia has a disabled (cerebral palsy) sister living overseas who is presently being cared for by the parents. When both parents pass away, is it possible for my friend to permanently bring over her sister and be her guardian/carer? She (the disabled sister) will have enough money in her account so she wont be financially depended on my friend. Thank you.

    Which city Is a mix of suburban and urban lifestyle

    You're welcome Always believe in yourself and don't give up, stay positive as eventually something will come up. Network as much as you can, research and be informed and don't be shy to ask for help. I find Brisbane a great place as its more affordable, less crowded than the big cities, has endless beaches, hinterlands, weather that I like and family friendly Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Brisbane is very family friendly and affordable. I find it quite safe but of course you'll always find some trouble where ever you go in the world. I'm in IT and had found a job in 3 weeks, of course it depends on your skill but there are some IT jobs. Check seek.com.au Google and do research so you get an idea of the cities as they are different, depends what you like. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Buying a new car

    Where is the largest concentration of car dealers around Brisbane? I am mainly looking at https://www.carsales.com.au but of course would want to go a bit around at car dealers...

    Furnishing your home, as a new migrant

    Hmm, interesting as we'll need to buy a few thing when we land in a month. For prices, I usually double check on https://www.appliancesonline.com.au How come you opted for JB HiFi...they gave you the best price? Heard the Good Guys have a good service/deals in general.
  11. I doubt it's that as I'm quite scary, but ye, it does happen at times I guess Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Where to stay on arrival

    I know right! At times it feels like a dream I have already done this before so I know how it feels/what it entails. You just need to be prepared and organized and of course know your stuff once you arrive.
  13. Yeah, that sounds a bit odd to me too! I remember back in 2011 it was quite easy, we just went to a medicare centre, took a ticket and were all set up in 45 mins or so, no hassles whatsoever....
  14. Great post, nice to hear you guys are settling in nicely

    Also, to add with Ozzie, for car hire, check https://www.rentalcars.com/au/ They will show you quotes from different companies and also offer cheaper insurance like Ozzie mentioned. We rented an SUV for 2 weeks as need to be quite mobile until we buy a car. Cheers B1K3R
