Long time no see! How are you going? Is everything going
smoothly?I'm very well in here.
I have been worked in Cairns Colonial
Club as housekeeping around two months. People who working in here all
very nice to me and I earn extremely good money from this job. About 22
dollar per hour before tax and we have DASP can get before leave Aus.
Also I got a lot of friends who are residents here. They teach me
English all the time when we have brake time.Last week I got one more
job working in a busy take way at night. They didn't give me good pay
but I can practice using English to take order for customers, take the
phone call. It's a little hard for me especially on the phone, but I'll
try to overcome.
I'm so lucky to get these two jobs very near the place I lived, so I don't need to waste time on riding bike. My friends spent eight hundred dollar to buy a second hand scooter because they lived very far. It took them twenty minutes even by scooter. To tell the truth, I really don't like ride bicycle especially under the burning of sunshine.
Compare the photos of attached with I sent to you last time,
and you can find I'm getting dark not only brown. Besides, I got the
other casual job as extras of Sea Patrol 3, Aus's TV show. I am required
for ten hours in total throughout the shoot. The costume they gave me
is a cheongsam, very Chinese style and whole scenes on the sea. I saw
the Aus's TV star, Lisa McCune. People said she is very famous in here.
I'm very cheerful to see a celebrity so close even I don't know her. The food and refreshments they provided very yummy. Unfortunately, I couldn't eat too much because I've got seasickness. It's really a special experience for me and I got 300 dollar after took off tax for one day working. Vis this time, I realized it is a very hard work to be an actor because you have to repeat the same conversation again and again for a scene until director say next scene.
Normally, I take plenty
photos, but our mobile phones cameras must be switched of while we are
at work. So I only took one phone after work finished.Do you remember I
told you I want to go to Japan for skiing next year? My sister told me
that we will go to Japan around 2009/2/9. I think it's expensive if I go
to Japan from Australia and then come back Australia. So, I made up my
mind to come back Taiwan earlier. Could you please change time of return
trip to 2009/2/1 for me? Thanks awfully for your help in advance. If
you have any further news, please feel free to let me know. I'm looking
forward to hearing from you. See you!!
在找工作的過程中收穫還不少….在剛到澳洲的兩個星期後, 我就開始在澳洲的兩家網路求職104乖乖的填寫資料, 寄履歷…不過收到的回覆都是有其他的人經歷更好, 已經找到了, 其中三分之二的求職信都石沉大海…..所以那根本是一條行不通的求職路. 他們的報紙上工作機會也是超級多的, 不過相對看報紙找工作的人也是一大堆…所以會遇到的競爭對手更多, 既然花錢刊報紙找人也就是希望找到有經驗的, 所以如果有相關的工作經驗，就會有優勢啦！
臨時演員的工作就是從報紙看到的, 本來我以為是在那個公園拍戲, 要一些亞洲人做背景, 結果那天去了那裡才知道根本沒明星在那拍戲,
我同學教我他們韓國人是怎麼找工作的, 第一次示範給我看後, 我就開始了自己的job hunting, 不分大大小小的餐館,飯店,或是購物中心,
就是厚著臉皮的一間間詢問給履歷, 這時找不找的到工作就跟英文程度 中級 中高級 沒什麼太大的關係啦 ,重點就在妳敢不敢走進去問, 運氣好不好,
如果運氣好他們有缺, 沒人跟你競爭…工作就來囉!!!! 幾乎全部的韓國同學幾乎都是在一星期內找到工作, 至於我嘛,
一開始運氣超背…..不是每間都願意收履歷的前提下, 我還能把印好的30份都用完, 就在即將要滿一個月, 在我準備放棄,
只是不想花太多時間在賺錢, 想多花點時間讀點英文, 所以都回覆說找到工作了, 目前的兩個工作的地方都超近的, 差不多騎腳踏車5至10分鐘,
兩個工作, 一星期工作約30個小時, 稅後收入500多元, 還有很多時間可以安排自己想做的事…在這裡生活可以算挺悠閒的…..
