2010 East Rand "Coffee" Club


Serendipity

Recommended Posts

Serendipity

Due to the great success of the last get together, and the sudden demand for another one I have decided to run with it and use the same layout as Stranded did before.

Date is booked with the DROS already, based on requests of an early Feb get together, before certain forumites depart on thier new adventures.

Lets try beat the last record of 21ppl and Gremlins!!!

CONFIRMED "COFFEE" CLUB ON THE EAST RAND

Date: Sunday 7 February 2010 @ 13h00

Venue:

DROS

Eden Meadows Shopping Centre

Cnr. Van Riebeeck & Modderfontein Road

Edenvale - near Greenstone Mall

Tel: 011-452 1882

Seating: Upstairs, there is a secure play area for the Gremlins downstairs & outside

Invites: All on forum big (Adult) & small (Gremlin)

RSVP: Here on the topic, with a head count (Adults & Gremlins)

PLEASE PM ME YOUR NAMES FOR THE TAGS

Format: Will be the same as before, seating will be upstairs with tags and numbers for billing purposes.

What happens on a coffee club normally:

Very informal, meeting, those that want to eat or drink, do so, others save for the expensive flights to Aus

It normally starts a bit stiff, as people are strangers to one another,

People talk to one another about how far they are in the process,

People share advice,

People share their fears,

People laugh

And then no one wants to go home in the end!

Look forward to meeting some old and new Forumites.

:)

Ag tog, I will probably be there :ilikeit: It's not that I don't like you guys, it's just that I would have preferred to be in Australia! :unsure:

I'm currently in Australia, but I am flying back to South Africa mid January and then hopefully the sale of the business will be finalised by end of February. So if my brothers don't have something planned for that weekend, I will gladly join you guys!

See you!

We're also planning on leaving early 2010 (oh...this year), looking forward to meeting all of you. It sounds like there will be about 20 people(???) so, should be good.

Hi there,

We would love to attend - 2 adults (Di & Gary), one 'gremlin' - Zoë (2.5 yrs old)!

Please could you add us to the list.

We are "onions", live in Croydon, Kempton Park. I am so glad to see another coffee club has come up so soon (and in the same venue, 5 mins drive for us!), missed the last one by 2 days! We can't wait to meet like-minded people and chat and gather advice on this migration journey!

We have so far gathered all passports, vault copies etc. Next step is IELTS, and hubby to do his RPL for the ACS. He's dragging his feet on this one as it seems like it's going to be a huge mission...

Would just like to know - how many of you out there are actually using an agent??

We went through an agent based in Perth (Met him on his visit to RSA). What I liked about him was that he actually read my mails as opposed to the large agencies that sent you a standard response about what the requirements are and didn't respond to any of my questions and concerns around timing 9as in applying before birthday), studying CISSP, Qualification recognitions, etc, etc.

I also struggled getting around to doing the RPL, it's a killer. What line of work are you in specifically - I bought RPL example packs that made kicking the process off much easier and they might be able to help you.

See you guys on the 7th

The RPL thing sucks, they want to know every single detail for the past 8 years at the ACS. It has taken me 3 months to get everything together and I still need to do 2 more statutory declarations today. Hopefully I will get everything off to my agent this week. I guess all good things come to thos who wait... :ilikeit:
