Have you ever visited Australia and some parts of the world for food and wine?
As I was reading up on food and wine pairing, I saw these photos online at the Food and Wine website of Australia.
I've been actually thinking of my Fil-Australian friend who chose to live with her own family in Melbourne and have been missing her so badly. One of our conversation went to the gritty issue of her inviting me and my family to visit them there and do some food and wine exploration.
With that I also have been quite interested jut lately with food, tourism, involving indigenous food and wine, specifically in the "land down-under."
But you see like other Filipinos who dream of going overseas for both work and pleasure, I am also concerned of how the process would be, for us to be able to go to Australia.
The Commission on Filipinos Overseas reported in 2011 that there were 10.4 million Filipinos in permanent, temporary or irregular status abroad, about 11% of the projected 93.9 million total Philippine populations in the same year. More and more are trying to get jobs abroad.
With reasons like unstable economic situation, perennial high unemployment rate, low salary offered by local companies, poor benefits, etc. But no matter what reasons Filipinos are leaving the country for, it is becoming apparent that most of the Filipinos who had the chance to work abroad had better lives and more stable finances. Not only that, would you not want to experience snow, or live in farm in the down-under, or revel on the romantic views of cherry blossoms in springtime?
On a survey done, given a chance, one in every five Filipinos would want to emigrate or visit a foreign country.
A critical hurdle for most Filipinos looking to go abroad, however, is the tedious and sometimes nerve-wracking visa application process. Not to mention the risks of spending much with every visits to documenting office, which most of the applicants complain about.
Indeed, the challenge of putting together the right documents and properly lodging an application for visa to one’s destination country could easily lead to discouragement and despair.
But I have been reading a lot about this certain company who have managed to help tourists, immigrants and OFW's live out their dream. And I am actually thinking of using their services myself for my family to experience Australia's food tourism.
