In Topic: IT jobs in Sydney, Australia

Thanks for your quick response.
IT jobs include software engineer, software developer, Programmer, Web Developer etc etc.
Recently I was reading article on Austrailian Skilled worker migration program failing due to lack of high tech IT jobs. A big number of Skilled worker migrants are ended up working for fast food restaurants, pizza deliveries, cab drivers. So I was just curious.

In Topic: Tuition fee at german universities

IP, i suggest you take a history course while you are in school. Just because British conquered part of Eastern United States, it does not mean Americans were slaves.
It is like saying ( since one time Germany took over part of France), French were slaves of Germans. Term "slavery" refers to actual purchasing of human being, and engaging him/her to menial tasks.
Also, somebody's comment on why Bill Clinton sent his daughter to Oxford. If you are into Politics, it does make sense if you attend school in different countries. You will learn International law, rules/regulations in different countries etc etc.

Interesting discussion!!!

You should know that american were british slave


IP, what is that to do with anything? That is so out of context!! and yes nobody has ever heard of "BRUNEL UNI".

I think I agree with Ashis that when it comes to the name of the school, that is very important. It really matters if you have a degree from Harvard, Princeton or small trade school. Employers do judge you based on that , along with your GPA, work experience. Employers automatically assume you are a good student if you are the product of one of those reputed schools because they know that admission criteria is much tougher, curriculum is rigorous, Professors are qualified/renown and university facilities are state of the art.

i don't like the fact that water isn't free too...tap water should be free atleast. so did you spot any nepali momo pasals whilst you were in london then? did you also notice that half the stalls in camden market is ran by nepali people with nepali touristy stuff....a bit expensive for my liking though! the best thing about london is the west end though, so many plays and musicals you can go and see and shopping...i guess you have to be loaded to enjoy the city life!


Yes, We went to Nepalese restaurant next to Euston station. I think it is called Great Nepalese Restaurant. It was really nice inside. The menu selection was huge from Vegetarian Momo to Kachela to Gundruk ko tarkari. I thought the price was reasonable. Lassi was great.

Yes I noticed bunch of Nepali at Camden market. Those small stalls really reminded me of Delhi and Bangkok. It is cool though. But I think you have to watch out for thugs and pick-pockets. Also, at two different occasions, we got into small brawl with punks standing there ( smoking joint ). HeHe!!

Another thing I noticed, the fashion over there is just too different. You dont see guys wearing Pink tight jacket here in the US. and almost everybody wears 1970s PUMA over there!! smile.gif

I found it funny that they are almost no public restrooms ( toilets ). There are some but wow, you have to pay to use the restroom. That is one screwed up system.
One time I had to go really bad, so I decided to go inside KFC to use their bathroom. This stupid indian guy told me that you had to buy something to use the restroom. I had a big brawl with this lunatic. And yes, Indians are everywhere. I really think that Indians are the majority in London..smile.gif
What else!! ..oh yes, people are rude. One time We were in Picadilly circus area, standing in front of a street souvenior shop deciding what to buy. The owner of the shop actually told us to move on and that we were blocking other customers. Wow, that is amazing. I have never experienced anything like that here in US. And nobody has ever complained because I used their bathroom but did not buy anything from them.
Top of that, one of my friends got into a nasty argument with cleaning lady at hotel because that cleaning lady kept knocking at our room door,and telling us that the check out time was 10 30, when the guy at the check-in counter himself told us check out time was noon.
Anyways despite all that, the trip was interesting. Westminister Abbey was great. Bigben, parliament building was fabulous. Buckingham palace was outstanding ( got to see the queen by the way ). Sigmund Freud domicile was interesting. Got to see 221b baker street, museum was closed when we got there though.
London city hall building was intersting. Camden town market reminded me of markets in Delhi.
And yes We managed to visit Nepalese restaurant. Food was great.
Finally, it is good to be back home ( home away from home). I am gonna miss Kings-Cross station where we stayed close to.
