    I'm alive hehe still here, been here since Jan so almost a year hehe living in Kennedy and soooo love it xx
  2. Oh god homefind is a pain in the butt, we had our PMKeys No for about 5 months before we came out and in that whole time their was only 2 houses on their and neither were what we wanted so we waited till we got here ( I would personally advise anyone who is coming over to choose when you arrive as what you see on the commp google earth etc may not be what you see in real life) anyway we waitied and waited and as you have the rental when you get here their is no rush to choose a home i think you can stay in the rental for 6 weeks and over if you wish, anyway no DHA homes became available for us so we had to private rent, its a pain in the butt house inspectons every 6 week, the real estate agent is a cow and to be honest its not worth the hassel couple that up with having to pay a bond and 2 months rent up front and its not worth it I would take a DHA home any day over a private rent.

    Fear of Flying....

    Oh no i hate flying too We flew to perth in January seriously i was a sweaty wreak before the plane even took off all i did was i took an ipod and plugged it in turned it up full blast and shut my eyes Every little bit of turbulence had me asking "are we cashing@ sounds really stupid now lol but on our flight from hong kong to perth during the night the turbulence was horrific , so i went to the toilet to be sick and low and behold the capt of the plane was their OMG that set me off again i was quizzing him about the turbulence the likelyhood of crashing etc, he just laughed and said at some point between hong kong (cant remember wher it was) the usually experience turbulence for about 15 mins and that it was completly normal and not to worry he then went on to tell me about his daughter etc and how she was the same age as mine, and when i got back to my seat about an hour later he came up to have a chat with us really really nice man, and we arrived safley i still dont like flying but hey ho If i was you what id do is try and stay up for as long as you can the day before so your really tired as soon as you get on the plane ge your pyjamas on and have a drink then try your hardest to fall asleep before the plane takes off Good luck im sure you will be fine
  6. Anywhere then lol lol Ive kept my big spider in a jar just for you lol
  7. Hiya Their are hardly any rentals available over here at the min, wwe arrived in jan and nothing so we had to go rental assist its good but their are downsides i.e they wont pay your bond for you unless you have a tax file number which you cant get till your here, The rent they pay for you is 185 per week, and you have a ceiling rent too so your not supposed to go about that ours was 389. Oh and trying to get a rental if they have any DHA ones available take it because for every ouse that is on the open market to be rented about 10 - 15 couples will go view it at the same time as you and most will put in applications for it, the rental market here is completly different from the uk, their are so many after rental and not enough up for rental we applied for our along with 9 other couples all which had reference etc, what we had to do was double the bond and then pay 6 months rent upfront, Hope this helps a little Oh and before i forget not many houses here have pools that are for rent and when they do expect to see double the amount of applications we went to see one with a pool the house itself was well ugly the rent was high but it had a pool they had over 40 applications for it But good luck :wubclub:
