Anyone on Forumosa from New Zealand?


#1

Give me the good and the bad about living/working in New Zealand.


#2

Shite.


#3

The good: once you get citizenship you can freely move to Australia
The bad: until you can move to Australia you have to endure hearing their accents on a daily basis


#4

Having a tattoo on your face is less problematic.


#5

I am from NZ and working isn’t bad but it depends in what industry you are in (I’m in IT). Salaries are generally lower than Australia. Plenty of places to go for outdoor sports. Living costs are getting high in main centers especially Auckland where many of the jobs are. Public transit is terrible in all cities.


#6

Why would you want to move to Australia? They don’t seem too keen on self preservation down there.


#7

I hear low wages and high CoL
Whatever it is, 15% of them have made the journey across the Tasman!


#8

Shit, mon, don’t tell @the_bear, he fuckin hates kiwis…


#9

Stupid birds, can’t even fly, not even good eating.

Kiwis, what’re they actually good for? Absolutely nothing.

Except for Christian Cullen. That man’s a god.

This ad came on over the weekend

My kid says “I want to be a kiwi” (she meant the bird).
I told her don’t come runnin to me every time you need your butt wiped.


#11

That’s the good and the bad?

We were sitting, having a bit of a red wine appreciation night, trying to act as grown-ups

Translation: We were playing goon of fortune
