Hi there,

I was almost a month here in London! Very nice, London is very lovely!!!

Finally my dream comes true.

For those who worrying about the living expenses, grocery cost, rental cost etc… Don’t worry, London still can stay even thought they are world ranking number 2 of the highest expense country to live on!

My experience to share:

1.I stay in SE, London area, where I share a big room with Kate, nice and big enough.

2.Transport, I take mostly bus because right in front of my house there is a bus stop. If u travel more, u will be benefit on the MAX cash cap of different type of transport u r using!

3.Grocery shopping, I went Sainsbury and Tesco; I have most of the food like: tomatoes, bacon, sausage, lettuce, broccoli, milk, cereal, eggs, grape, strawberry, kiwi, digestive biscuit (All this is affordable if compare to Malaysia). Chinatown food is so so only, I better fly back to Malaysia for my Chinese food :P

4.Regarding jobs, there are plenty of jobs in London! We even have chance to reject an offer :P As long as u stick to ur plan example like the job u really want to do, then go for it! Dun worries about no job, economic crisis cos the earth still turning even thought u face any crisis!

I’m busy on daily visit out, but I really decided to stay in London but occasionally will travel to outside London.
Another big question!

Anyone using WHM visa for Master study? I ask few Uni, some Uni they do accept some Uni insist I need to use student visa!

Anyone has any idea how to qualified urself for the home tuition fee instead of international student fee?

Can anyone share ur experience?

Hey Vanessa,
Kate and Shirley had come to Kew, you say? That's 5 minutes from the place I stay! Next time, call so that we can all meet up :)

Grocery: Try Lidl and ASDA too, they're cheaper than Tesco... I am mostly eating salads and sandwiches bcos they're so easy to make, it's better to live as the english live in UK, bcos other types of food so costly

Jobs: Wow, you are rejecting jobs? Pls recommend one to me! I am on beggar status here... I can't find ANY p/t job in SW London

Regarding study, you can study part time which means the course should have less than 16 hours per week, in fact i'm studying parttime at Birkbeck College (class only on wednesday mornings), but you can't study full-time... you need to have student visa for that.

FREE LOFT SPACE WITH BED IN EXCHANGE OF 10-12 HOURS OF WORK PER WEEK
Location: Islington (Zone 2), 1 min from tube

Dear friends,
One of my friends own a 4-bedroom house in Islington and has a loft space to rent for some one who is willing to be a house help for 10-12 hours a week. In exchange, the person can stay free in the loft and also use the common facilities like bathroom, kitchen, washing machine, recycling etc.

The hours can be ANY ONE of the following:

1. 2 hours every weekday, or
2. 3.5 hours every Mon-Wed-Fri / Sun-Tue-Thur, OR
3. 1.5 hours every day (including weekends)

Basically, your 10-12 hours a week is to help the landlady maintain her house. Duties will include - tidy up the living room, sort out clutter in the cellar, cleaning the kitchen, loading/unloading diswasher, sweeping/mowing the garden, folding sheets in the laundry cupboard, hanging clothes on the line, taking out the trash etc. Very rarely, when the grandkids are at home (2 and 4 years old) you might have to babysit for them. Or you might have to do some shopping in the nearby store (2 min walk).

You will be working ONLY FOR THE LANDLADY, and not for the other renters in the house. So you don't need to deal with any of the other people's mess in their rooms!

This will suit a student or a working holidaymaker who wants to save money and is willing to help out with a smiling face. My friend, the landlady, is a very soft-mannered but tired schoolteacher who is 50 years old. This can be a man or a woman, but they should be in good health, show initiative, be cheerful and honour their weekly hours' worth of work.

Anybody interested, please email me and I will give you more details.

Thanks,
Rads

It's a small loft space with single bed, so only a single person can stay in it. No couples or groups pkease!
