Melbourne Price Check

We’ve had random comments about people asking us to inform them about immigration, overseas students coming in from India/Pakistan, etc., and so forth. I generally don’t think the Metroblogging Melbourne crew is generally qualified to write on these topics, but if you’re after that sort of information, do check out: Melbourne Price Check. (link thanks to someone on Twitter)

Its touted to be a guide to life in Melbourne, and from what I gather, focuses largely on those coming in from India/Pakistan. Looks like they might have started out from the Orkut (Google’s, somewhat failed, stab at social networking) “study in Australia Community”.

Hopefully those leaving us comments find the blog useful. There are useful bits and bobs about airline luggage limitations, if overseas drivers licenses are valid, permanent residency pass marks, what to do in the weekend, what it takes to get a student visa (from India), campus accommodation, and lots more.

    You forgot to mention spiteful and narrow-minded comments directed at adrock2xander. They’re not only barbed, they’re laced with cyanide and seem to suggest that everything I say is hyperbole. That’s incredibly frustrating as an author.

    Chill dude, chill :-) Write for yourself, and you’ll always encounter probably 95% acceptance rate, and 5% arseholes. In Unix-speak, you send those to /dev/null
