When applying for the Visa Subclass 190 one has to select the specific State you wish to receive an invitation from. I am a quantity surveyor hence need to select a state where infrastructure and construction projects are plentiful. How do I decide between NSW, VIC, WA and QLD?! Where would a South African who is used to the Cape Town and Western Cape landscape and lifestyle adapt the best?
Atm, I travel 3mins to my kid's daycare, I travel another 8mins then I'm at work. I dont see my baby in the mornings, just a quick greet and run. I get up at 7h15. My husband waits for the nanny and then goes to work. So then I'm at work, I get 30mins lunch, which I never take, even though I eat stuff while I'm busy. 4h30 I go home and pick up my kid before 5 otherwise I'll have to pay penalties. I dont go shopping. At home I'll feed the kids and play with them, and sometimes cook if I feel like it. Then they go to sleep at 8pm and I have about 2h of free time which I spend packing lunch for the next day, watching tv and playing on my phone. My husband does most of the shopping since he only works till 3pm. I do minimal cleaning, washing, etc the nanny does most of it. Most my time is spent putting things away and organising areas in the house that my kids destroyed, the nanny sucks at that. They require loads of attention atm. My baby sleeps through from 8 till 7 and the 2yo gets up at 5 and gets into bed with us. I feel dead tired all the time. How does this compare to a typical Aus day for a woman?
claudiodr posted a topic in Canberra, ACTHi again all So I've been trying to pull a budget together based on expected salaries and expenses. I've used all the resources I could find on the interweb to try and get this as accurate as possible...now I'd like to draw on the experience of the Canberran contingent of SAAus to give me your opinions on where I need to tweak my expectations. Next to each income/expense I've added the source however if you think I'm off the marke please let me know. As it stands, we'll have loads more disposable income in Canberra than we do at the moment in UK doing exactly the same jobs. And that includes a house with a garden and free sunshine! Seems too good to be true...can you let me know if it is please:-) BUDGET Description Ave Source Income Marketing Manager salary $5,104 $80,000pa - http://www.payscale.com/research/AU/Job=Marketing_Manager/Salary#by_State (nett - http://www.paycalculator.com.au/) Exec Sec salary $4,010 $60,000pa - http://www.payscale.com/research/AU/Job=Executive_Assistant/Salary#by_State (nett - http://www.paycalculator.com.au/) Expenditure - 2 people Home rent -$2,200 http://www.allhomes.com.au/ Council Rates -$133 http://www.justlanded.com/english/Australia/Australia-Guide/Money/Cost-of-Living (Took the total annual and split over 12 months) Water -$74 Water usage -$35 Contents insurance -$35 Electricity -$139 Gas -$61 Transport - Public -$225 https://www.transport.act.gov.au/myway/fares.html#Adult Groceries -$140 http://www.justlanded.com/english/Australia/Australia-Guide/Money/Cost-of-Living Mobile -$130 https://onlineshop.telstra.com.au/ Internet $50 http://www.telstra.com.au/internet/home-broadband-bigpond-elite-plans/ TV -$109 https://www.foxtel.com.au/shop/packages-and-deals/?execution=e1s1 Entertainment -$2,500 Finger in the air!
