  1. Only in Australia surely? A driver who tried to squeeze a massive organ into the boot of her car has left police dumbfounded. Officers stopped the Ford sedan in Perth WA on Sunday after spotting the instrument almost completely hanging out of it. Tied down with just a few loose loops of rope, the large timber organ appeared to be far from safely secured. Have you seen worse?
  2. Hey i'm Sam i moved to perth about a month or so ago!(i'm a dude btw) i just turned 16 yeterday haha but bit gutted as my only friends are my family atm (N) wouldnt mind meeting up with people in the near future, we're renting a place in joondalup and hoping to be moving in to a new place in kinross in the up coming month! but anyway just get back to me if anyones interested thanks!

  3. Hi All, This is my first thread and will probably be pestering you all over the coming months as i am just about to tackle the 175 visa process head on without the aid of a migration agency........:-/ Does anyone have any helpful tips or advice on the application process and any hidden nasties I should look out for? I am an Automotive Electrician with 5 years experience but no qualifications in this area........ does this matter? I also have a level 2 Apprenticeship in the application of engineering techniques and an HNC in Mechanical Engineering. How do I go about getting a skills assessment for an Automotive Electrician with only the 5 years experience to go on? Can I just get references from my employer (or preferably my supervisor so I don’t need to tell my employer yet) and send them in a nice e-mail and await the outcome? Thank you for your time, Mark p.s. if I can be of any help to anyone let me know.
  4. So my husband and I have decided to take the plunge and move out to oz, we were there on WHV last year, loved it and want to go back, mainly since jobs here in NI for a quantity surveyor are non existent!!! No quality of life etc.. We think we may decide to use an agent purely since we are both busy and he works away 5 days a week. Should we do the DIY option, my question is do people start a skills assessment first before applying for visa? If so how would one go about that, if anyone has done the quantity surveyor one? Timescales costs etc? We want to get visa application in before these new "'don't call us we'll call you' to apply for a visa change takes place!
  5. I have worked as a Community Service Supervisor in Scotland and I can honestly say that this job gave me the most satisfaction out of the jobs I have done. Where would I find info on the same or similar position in Oz?
  6. LOL I did not realise but you can view all the threads that you have ever started on PIO, I have just has a right good old laugh at my last 2 years from the initial what’s a visa, being taken off the CSL, my hubby being made redundant and my boy making silent 999 call at Easter. I’ve just been on a right journey.:wacko: Did not realise there had been so many highs and lows in the past few years Give it a try sure you will have a laugh too.:jiggy:
  7. My hubby is a self taught Aerial Installer, Virgin Media installer and Sky Installer. We are stuck as to what the Australian terminology is. Could it be Telecommunications Technician or Telecommunications Linesworker? Any help would be much appreciated. He has a digital tick Thanks so much

  12. Seem to be getting a few crossed wires lately. I was under the impression that LOL in posts meant for a long time, 'Love You Lots', its only recently that one of my kids said , 'No you plank, it means, 'Laughing Out Loud'. So I would like to take this opportunity of apologising to ALL those members of PIO who I have PM'd after reading LOL in one of my posts/threads saying: 'Thanks a lot, but I barely know you. I'm sure if I got to know you better a loving relationship could form, and who knows a long and happy future may await us both. But at the present even though you say you love me I feel a little tentative to reciprocate as I barely know you, but thanks for the sentiment anyway:wubclub::wubclub:' Cheers Tony:wink:

Weve been out here for 18 months...finally settled but really want new friends preferably of the pome kind because of sense of humour and the language barrier (some people struggle to understand us...the queens english is a hard one to fathem in a eeerrmmm english speaking country lol - god help the aussies if they went to england with the diferent dialects in a 5 mile radious lol) Were very easy going and laid back love a good laugh. Would also be great to meet other mums with young babies. were in browns plains brisbane. I'm 22(like to think of myself as mature my husband may argue that lol) and kevs 30 were origionally from wolverhampton in the midlands.

  21. Hiya I'm an Aussie and hubby is a Bristol boy and we have an 8 year old son. Would love to make friends in the Brisbane area as I think hubby needs a bit of male bonding with some of his fellow countrymen, he's been here for 5 years and with work and building a new house as such haven't had the chance to really extend our circle of friends. I didn't even know sites like this exsisted it's amazing the internet. He is 42 and I'm 39 so hey you can never have enough friends right :smile:
