    Pie Vs pasty?

    In my eyes a proper pasty would be potato, turnip, and onion with beef and a healthy dusting of salt and pepper. Each to his/hers own though (but then it may not classify as a proper Cornish pasty) I quite like the crimp on the side, being a miner sometimes I do have dirty hands! I'm based on the sunshine coast so may have to keep an eye out for the past guy in Brisbane when I am next down there. Thanks for the heads up!

    Yes I agree with Pom Queen! You can't beat a good peppery pasty with loads of chunks of meat. As for pies, the best I have found is from Brumbies in Mt Isa. Tasty!

    Hey guys, As a dedicated pasty muncher I just cannot grow the love for the traditional Aussie pie..... Don't get me wrong it tastes pretty good but it just doesn't fill you up! What's your thoughts? And where do you get the best pasty?! Been here 3 years now and have not come across any good pasties (apart from the ones that come out of my own oven)

    Got an Invitation to apply 189 visa.

    Hey, It took around 5 weeks for the CO to be assigned if I remember correctly. As soon at the CO was assigned things moved along very quickly.

    It should be yes. You can always call up just to justify. They can't expect everyone to keep years and years of pay slips. If you have a few end of tax year forms from a few years back it wouldn't hurt to upload those as well. Once you get assigned a CO if they want more evidence they will just ask for a bit more. They won't just refuse your application right there and then

    Why did you come to Australia? (In a sentence!)

    Cornish lads are miners, Cornish lads are fisherman too. When all the fish and tin are gone, what are Cornish lads to do?!

    You have to submit all evidence to justify your points claimed. So if you are claiming a certain amount of points for a number of years worked in a specific field you have to supply evidence to back that up, ie pay slips or a contract or a letter from your employer. We went through all the same with the 189. Made sure we had all the evidence required plus more. Even for dependants. Just to make it easy for the CO. Once we were assigned a CO it took 8 days to be approved. This was for physiotherapy. If you have the points plus evidence to back the points and valid skills assessments etc I can't see any issues at all.
