G'day! (not so good weather tho)

I am very new here in Sydney and need some friends - male or female. Really don't know the area and actually miss Indonesia!

Was wondering if any of people here on JakChat from Sydney (city, suburbs, or outskirts) and wanna be my friend?

Thanks.

P.s I'm Indonesian and female :-)

Hi Indo_female.. welcome, i'll be your friend wink

i miss indonesia alot too.., it's normal to feel homesick when you've just arrived in a new country, try to keep yourself busy..

ps:the guy named Polar Bear lives in Sydney, and he's very friendly, i'm sure he can show you around (pulling PB's fur! wake up)

Thanks Chocolatea and yang lain juga,

The first week here has been a bit too difficult with almost knowing anybody. Are people here easy to make friends with?

Haven't had time to get in and around the city - might be completely lost tho.

I'm looking to get to know people genuinely for friendships only, not more than that - otherwise someone will kill me haha.

Well.. it's a good advice kuku.. you know buaya darat's normally good with entertaining a girl, he will make her forget about her homesickness laugh

it's hard to say Indo.. everyone's different, some ppl are friendly some are not. But in general yes, i think australians are veeery friendly. You'll find that people will occasionally smile at you as you're walking pass, or greets you when they make eye contact.

Not like in indo.. where ppl are more cuex, cant blame them too.. we're raised with the knowledge that, stranger = danger

If we hold an Oz visitor visa, can we do part-time work with payment off the books? Or is it too risky? Getting caught and deported by immigration won't be good at all..

By law no, by reality, yes of course. no one is going to pick you up for it. Everyone does it, and no one gets caught unlerss it involves other activities that attract attention - eg prostitution.

Thanks for your input, Polar Bear.

Maybe I'm just too paranoid with strict Oz immigration rules and conditions.

'Prostitution' eh? That never comes on my mind. Just need something to keep me busy, a little bit of cash is a plus, not thru prostitution tho :-)

They try to make it sound bad, but in reality they are pretty lax. There are a lot more importnat things ot worry about than some young girl earning a bit of cash working in a cafe or whatever. i can put you in touch with some of the indo community if you want.

That's what I thinking too. It's so weird that people especially foreigners say that Indo people are friendly. I got lots of more friendly gestures when I lived aboard.
Anyway, welcome Indo-female.

umm.. i guess because foreigners are like tourist attraction to many ppl in indo? ie: when a kid see badut ancol, it'll give him the funny feeling, he'll want to touch & be friendly, to satisfy his curiousity, .. and maybe the same happened with those foreigners who have visited indo.. .. (just maybe)
