    Well there was nothing to do but work work work. It was totally boring in there! There are no parks. There's nothing to see. If you wanna go to the beach you needed to travel far far away. And it's terribly hot there too. At least there's a small mall for grocery. People in the rural are workaholics bec there's nothing to do but work. If you worked for 30 yrs in the rural well I'm sorry but you just wasted your only life. In victoria and nsw instead of red desert it's forests. In Adelaide it's fields same with qld.

    Did you know that Perth is dark at night? Quezon city is brighter. Even Manila is brighter. And at 7:00pm the people are already at home. Shops here close at 6pm and are closed on Sunday. Perth is a ghost town on Sunday. SM MOA is also bigger than the biggest mall in wa. And there are only 2 skyscrapers here. That's Perth the most isolated city in the world run by bad politicians. People are demanding for extended retail hours. If you run out of cooking oil on Sat night good luck.

    yup... much easier.. there's a testing center for OET in Manila.. but dunno where it is.. try to search in their website.. OET deals more on nursing/nurses per se.. some says for writing they are ask to write a referral letter for the patient.. so its probably easy.. BUT costly.. its cost 528 AUD here in Australia.. but for overseas it costs 775AUD
    Is there any review center for OET in the Philippines? Is there anyone there who already take OET here in Australia? I'm looking for a good review centre here in australia, can u suggest?

    Good news! On the draft of the new list of aus needed occupation which is due to come out anytime soon, registered nurses are still on the list and also caregivers and nursing assistants. But as compared with RNs, the two latter occupation will need to complete more requirement before being granted a pr.

    The new specialized occupation list will only grant PR to occupations not available/not enough locally. So occupation like hairdresser, cooks, waiter, receptionist, etc etc will now have 0 chance of becoming a pr.

    So abhylicious name is abegail. Hmmmm
