Re: Australia Visa

Strong Eagle:
As an Indian, you have a more complicated process to get a visa to Australia, including AUD 135 to AUD 340 depending upon the visa.

I have an Indian Passport and my wife has Phillines PP. We are both PR.

My wife would need Tourist Visa. Does that take longer than the Business Visa ?

Re: roasted coffee beans

Strong Eagle:


As I recall, the coffee powder factory was about $15 per kg and up. Maybe some cheaper stuff, too.

http://www.jenniferteophotography.com/t ... -singapore - you can see here that the prices are quite reasonable for standard coffees.

Uhm. This looks right. Thanks SE again. Do you have any specific beans they sell worth to be recommended? I drink it black with no suger, no milk etc. and like it strong but with nice coffee aroma. Otherwise, I am not a connoisseur.

@earthfriendly: iHerb is excellent and I use them for ca 2y already but including the delivery the coffee will be again the SG price. On the other hand, I just noticed they have some organic beans that are priced at the SG regular coffee price, so for people into organic stuff, this could be a good source.

x9200, I can't remember specific beans, and I like a medium roast and a relatively coarse drip grind. Good thing about the guy that runs this place will be happy to talk to you about what you like to drink, will recommend beans, will brew you a cuppa if you wish.

Re: Australia Visa

What passport?

@PNGMK, I don't blame him, if he 'never' feels this way he is probably very excited and thinking emotionally.

Hopefully their relationship can last the many months of long distance they are in for, trust me, if you aren't dedicated it will kill and ruin your relationship.

Re: Living costs Singapore? - Advice

NZinSG:
9k a month should be fine.

Your biggest expense will be housing, you're willing to share so that brings the price down. Depending on where you live I would guess the minimums could be:
Own place ~ 2000+
Master bedroom ~ 1200+
Single room ~ 500+

Obviously better places and locations will make those prices go up.

If you search the forum several people have had the price broken down for them for monthly living, so I'd look for those topics.

Re: roasted coffee beans

earthfriendly:
For those interested in internet shopping. I actually found out about this website from a friend who lives in Japan. They offer reasonable international shipping rate. I am not a coffee drinker, so can't comment on the taste and quality. Selection is huge, pages after pages.......

Yeap, if $$$$ wealth is all they are after, soon the country will become an unsustainable unit. Lucky for us, the consumers, there is always the internet and globalisation, to bypass local unsustainable prices :P ,
