  1. This was such a fun read, Karen! Glad to know studying in Australia had a positive experience on you. Do you still keep in touch with the people you’ve met there? πŸ™‚

    1. I still keep in touch with the people I met there. Good thing I’m friends with them on Facebook! But, I don’t get to talk to them that much anymore.
      Studying in Australia was the best experience ever. The school, the environment, etc. To be honest, I’d love to live in AU too. Or New Zealand.

  2. Reading about your experience 8 years ago abroad make me miss my internship abroad aswell. I’ve been trying my best to do a blog post about it but I always end up not doing it. hahaha! If I were given a chance to study abroad, I would totally grab it because from what I read in you blog makes me excited to experience it aswell. I’d also choose Australia though I would like to live in the US. hahaha!

    1. Where did you intern? Try to do a blog post about it if you can! I like reading those kind of posts. How long did you stay there and how was your experience?
      Studying abroad was my once in a lifetime opportunity. Lol. I want to study abroad again but I can’t afford it now. It’s really expensive, but definitely worth it!

  4. If I could go abroad, I will like to go to Japan, Paris, and South Korean! Hahaha! This is truly a nice read beb! Couldn’t imagine myself somehow away with my family back home with that long! I know some friends in Australia right now and being independent somehow! And by the way, I love their accents there! Hahaha! Have a great day lovely and hope you could visit my blog and drop some love! *

    1. I’ve never been to Japan, Paris and South Korea! ? few years ago, I wanted to settle in Japan – influenced by anime! Hahaha.
      It was difficult at first. I was crying the entire week because I was homesick and I missed everything back home. I love their accents too! It’s easier to understand than the British accent. Haha.

      Thanks for dropping by my blog ❀️ I hope you’ll have a great day too!

  6. Aww, it was and still is my dream to study in Australia! There’s just something about that country. Iipon muna ako! Hahaha! Also, wow, Thomasian ka rin pala!! Daming blogger na from UST!

    1. At first I was worried about getting some racist remarks, but buti na lang wala naman akong na-encounter na ganon. Actually, bida bida ung Asians lalo na kpag Maths na ung subject namin. Hahaha. Yup, I’m a Thomasian! Ikaw din ba?

  8. Australia is my favorite country, next to the Philippines. Living outside of our comfort zone is hard, but is worth it. You know, the toughest sword comes from the highest pressure and heat. Take care!

    1. I always like to get out of my comfort zone. One thing I like about myself is I’m adventurous and I’d like to explore. The thought of living outside my comfort zone scares me, yes, but that still won’t stop me from getting what I want. Australia is my favorite country too, but I like to live in New Zealand. Haha.

    1. Exactly! That’s why I consider it as my most memorable experience so far. I’d love to experience the same thing again. I just know that I wouldn’t be who I am if it wasn’t for my past experiences πŸ™‚

  10. Study abroad is one of my dreams. You’re so lucky that you had a chance to study in Bond University. I really enjoyed reading your story. Good luck to your journey in UST!
    Probably, Harvard University. ❀️

  12. I’ve always wanted to study abroad but just for a few months (maybe?) because I tend to get homesick πŸ™ It would be great if I can study either in Taiwan or Japan in the future but for now, going to as many places as I can is the goal. Haha! Some of my relatives are in Australia too and I’ve always wanted to go but I’m scared of the expenses haha

    1. I only had mine for 7 months. I was supposed to finish a 2-year course but I went home instead which I kinda regret! Maybe studying abroad to take a masters degree or something is definitely worth it! I swear if only I could afford it, I will. Hahaha.
      I wanted to study in Japan but the language barrier!! Haha.

      Well, at least your relatives live there. You can have free accommodation when you visit πŸ˜›

  14. Sounds like a wonderful experience! Studying abroad was one of my biggest dreams when I was still studying. Hehe πŸ™‚

    1. It was a wonderful experience! πŸ™‚ You’ll get to know more about different cultures – not only Australian but other cultures too because you are surrounded by students from different countries.

  16. I really had fun reading this Karen! πŸ™‚ I wish I had the opportunity to study abroad as well. Australia is never on my list of to visit country but when my boyfriend went there for work, he was so amazed with the culture and the country itself. He said if he’ll live somewhere else aside from the Philippines, he’ll definitely choose Australia. There must be something about Australia that he really liked.
    If I will be given an opportunity, I’d love to study in London πŸ™‚

    1. One of the reasons why I like Australia is because there are lots of Filipinos who live there. Sometimes, it feels like home! The people are nicer, the place is safer.. and the list goes on! Too bad I was only able to live there for 7 months. I loved my entire stay, and I didn’t have any problems at all.
      Oh my! London! <3 that seems to be a good place to study at!

  19. Hello,
    I’m really impressed by the information this blog. Well, it was an informative post and you have explained well.

    While reading it, I had flashbacks to my own experiences:-)

    Amy student thinks that Australia is not so different from your home country, so it will be easy to study abroad and you really don’t need to work hard. But it is not true.

    I had done some much hard work during my graduation in Australia. If you also want to study in Australia, you need a visa, Health Insurance. And Keep in mind that Australia is an expensive country.

    And I suggest you while selecting the city keep all the points in mind where you want to do complete your study. And do your best:-)

  23. I enjoyed reading your story. I actually applied for a study visa to japan but I got denied. My dad suggested Australia, so I did some reasearch and that’s how I found your blog. Thanks for sharing your experience, Karen!
