    Hi everyone. Is there anyone who could help me find a job there in Australia? I’m still here in the Philippines i really find it hard looking in the net. Any job would fit me. Hope I could find a positive response.

      Hello Cla, Saw your message and wanted to let you know of a work opportunity that might suit you. Are you planning to move to Australia and if so, when? The opportunity that I am offering to many people is something that you can actually start whilst you are still in the Philippines and continue to work at when you come to Australia. Please get back to me if you would like to find out more

    The Mess Dinner will be conducted by Australian Navy Cadets of Training Ship Sirius on Sat 23 Oct 2010 at Kingsgrove. If anyone has a lolo who served in WW2 and would like to be involved, I would be pleased and honoured to hear from you with contact details.

    Dear Editor

    Filipino Icon cruxified

    Last night I watched a well known Filipino Actress/Performer get sacrificed to her fans by greedy promoters,

    Yesterday I paid to see Nora Aunor perform having been told of her fame by Filipinos here in Australia.

    I sat through several hours of amateur night before realising something was wrong. Then Kuya Germs, an awarded Promoter/Director, came out and it all became apparent.

    She had committed herself to the tour, back in February and in April suffered a severe health problem that saw her in a coma and having surgery on her throat. She will never sing again. So while the greedy promoters held her to her contract, and sat outside counting their money, she sat in tears apologising to her fans one at a time while people took photos of her humiliation.

    I demanded and got my money back, and would have gladly given it to her to stop and stop the torture.

    This morning she flies back to Sydney to do it all again.

    To promote and sell tickets for a show they knew would not happen is Fraud in any country, but I don’t blame her at all, the promoters should have cancelled the show.

    • Rob   September 1, 2010 at 9:23 am

      You demanded and got your money back? That’s great, but what about those who did not demand their money back? I understand that under Australian laws there is no need to demand. The promoters or event organisers should have cancelled the show and offered the ticket holders to a refund ~ no questions asked.

    Hi All,

    I and my husband just migrated in Parramatta, NSW (he’s been here for 3 months and I for 1 month only). I’m wondering if there is any group whose interest is on outdoor sport such as camping, hiking, mountain climbing, or any other sports or activity that we can take part in. We are very much interested to be part of your community, if you may. Thank you and hoping to hear from anyone very soon.

    you need a visa to work in Australia, many people offering employment via this service don’t help with this visa, and often bring filipinos here illegally to work
