Hello Guys,

Cheers, Trevor

My husband has no time .
He is a caterer.
So this is my job.
Actually i spoke with somebody from Perth,and the place and the people attracts my a lot.
First i was thinking about Melbourn,but know i am looking more for Perth.

My first question is about my parents.

It is impossible that i leave them here in brussels.
So,is there somebody who knows the laws about immigration of older people?
I will try to find a job for my husband .
That shouldn't be to complicate.
But for my parents ,it is super important to find a solution to take them to.
Who can help me with this?

Hi everyone,

I am currently staying in Singapore but will move to Sydney end of the year with my husband and daughtee due to his job relocation. Want to know more friends preferably housewifes where we can share more cooking tips or company for shopping :)

I am planning to move and will move to Saigon in a few months. I plan to say bye bye to Melbourne as it doesnt fit me anymore....never has. It is more a married with kids scene if you are my age of 38. After living in London, Miami, Buenos Aires, Tulum, Praia da Pipa, Ios, Eilat, Barcelona, Vilinus, Prague and Dublin, I can't help but continue to keep seeking more homes abroad. Life is too short if you have cabin fever from being in a rat race and world now designed for rich sxxxs. Hugs.

Hi everyone and welcome on board  :)

@ Shane Roberts, feel free to post on the Saigon forum where you will be able to interact with members already there or planning to move there.

All the best,

thanks Bhavna, will do
