Elmenyek a napokban / Experiences over the last days

Csak nehany erdekesebb:

1. Lattam csotanyt. Nagyot. Az allatkertben. Olyan 6-7 centi hosszu, 2-3 centi szeles. Hetfon azt hittem mozog a mobiltoltom. Hat nem az volt. 2-szer megtapostuk, kidobtuk az ablakon, majd elszaladt. Lakotarsak azt mondtak nem tul gyakori, de elofordul nyaranta 1-2. Hat en meg fel...

2. Jelentkeztem bankkartya #2-ert, amivel lehet neten vasarolni, de nem hitelkartya meg. 30 perc adminisztracio, majd kiderul, hogy ilyet csak helyi lakosoknak lehet meg tartozkodasi engedellyel. Ok. Akkor lehet-e hitelkartyat igenyelni ugy, h csak 1 honapja vagyok itt? Persze, azt lehet! Szoval a sajat penzemet nem kolthetem, de a banket azt igen. Mar ertem miert van hitelvalsag... (megjegyzes: 2 munkanap alatt a bank is rajott, h ez igy talan nem okes, es oltari nagy marhasagot csinalnak, szoval ma felhivtak, hogy megkaphatom a netes bankkartyat is. Hurra. persze ettol meg mehet melle a hitelkartya is, ha minden rendben lesz. Majd kiderul.)


Some interesting things:

1. I saw a cockroach. A HUGE one. In the Wildlife Park. App. 6-7 cm long, 2-3 cm wide. On Monday I thought my mobile charger is moving. Well it was not the charger. We stepped on it twice. Then threw it out on the window, we saw it running away. Flatmates said it is quite rare, but not unusual, last year they had 1-2 as well. Well, I would rather skip it.

2. I applied for my second card, namely a debit. With that you can shop online, but it is not a credit. After 30 minutes administration it turns out that only residents and citizens can have it. Smart. Then can I have a credit card please, although I am here for only a month? Of course! So I cannot spend my own money, but the banks... Now I understtand why we have the financial crisis (comment: in 2 days the bank realised as well that it is a bit stupid, and it they are complete idiots, so today they called me, that I can get the debit card. Yuppee. But just in case they will continue processing my credit card application as well and they will decide soon. We will see.)

Nice. You realise that you will get ripped off on two fronts now.
1. You pay at minimum annual fees for both your credit/debit and credit card
2. The nice person who sold you the credit card got a fat commission.

^^ Welcome to Australia mate!

Don`t worry I am smarter than that :DD

The debit card is free of charge and my credit card will be foc as well, if I spend with it more than a 1000$/year which is highly probable :)

So I will not pay them anything :D
