Australia / Polish pierogi in Australia [11]

Polish Deli's at either Vic or South Melb markets if you're in central Melb.

Or if you're not fussed then one of the many dumpling houses in Melb all do takeaway frozen dumplings.

Australia / Australian - Polish Passport / Citizenship [10]

that depends on when they came over, if they came as displaced persons after the war i am not sure it matters.

but i could be wrong as it was ages ago that i looked it up.

Australia / Student from Poland wants to get to Australia [10]

are you from poland?

australia doesn't have any work treaties with poland so there are no such working holiday programs.

what are you studying? we do have a skilled migrant visa but that is geared to permanency and there are strict rules in place. if that is what you're after then best to look at the australian governments website to see what skills are in demand.

just be wary there are some schools/college's that promise the earth but are only after your zloty.

Love / Do young Polish ladies 17-23 speak any English? [59]

well, they say its not all about polish women but then go on to post that you would not be averse to meeting polish women and that there is no polish women in your area in the uk.

you want to meet polish women? thats fine, just dont bs your way about it.

King, I suggest you improve your reading comprehension if you think that second quote is supposed to contradict the first quote.

my comprehension is fine, the op is interested in polish females whether they be in poland or the uk.

Love / Should I bring gifts? - help with a Polish wedding [46]

its not just poland where giving money is acceptable, i have been to a few weddings in australia where money was perfectly acceptable.

the other new thing is couples setting up an account with a travel agent and you can make anonymous transfers to their online account and they use that money for their holiday.

the rule of thumb down here is that around $100 per person either gift/cash is acceptable.

Australia / Can My Polish girlfriend get a working visa in Australia?? [28]

umm, we have a skilled migrant program and also have certain professions that need filling.

now, what happened was that all these lil college's started offering chef and hairdressing (they were in demand) courses to mainly Indian people and charging them $20-30k for the privilege. the problem being that the students never had any interest in working in these professions.

the government has now closed the loophole on this and from what i gather it is a lot harder.

so, in summary, find out what the skills shortage is, study a course in that area and then apply.

Real Estate / Poland's apartment prices continue to fall [1844]

There are of course positives, but I am confident that prices will fall (definately when inflation is considered, but likely ignoring inflation as well).

did you purchase to have a solid foundation for the foreseeable future? or to try and make a bit of $$$'s in a couple years?

what are the deposit rates or equity market returns in poland?

could you effectively invest the difference between what you would pay in rent versus mortgage payments?

In Poland negative gearing, well King Sobieski!!! You miss the point, you cannot include business loss with personal income.

i was asking the question, not stating fact.

what are interest rates in poland at the moment?

do any other countries have negative gearing?

you dont know negative gearing?

under australian tax law you get a deduction for interest and other property related expenses on your rental property. ideally works the best if you're on a higher tax bracket.

Nobody knows where the safe haven for your money is

cash in australian banks.

currently getting over 5% on my cash balance which is out performing my stocks and managed funds.

The market is stagnant and prices are going down everywhere since 2007. Stable prices lol, there's a world recession.

thats crap.

property prices in australia have sky rocketed from 2007 to 2010. currently they're stagnating, but there is no huge drop of say, even 10%.
