yeah~~ i also think in the same way that some british are completely ass hole!! i was trying to get someone write me an invitation letter couple months ago from the net and been fooling around by them. till recently i am trying to ask my british friend to let me accomodate 1 or 2 week and he ask me to pay some of the bills already, such as unfriendly creature living in one of the world oldest country

you gotta be strong while oversea and do not let those british look down at you !!

I am sorry that you meet asshol3s but dont forget , everywhere and anywhere there will be these kind of people around. To my suprise , i strongly feel that English are far more extreme polite compare to Malaysians.
You need to have an open mind when you travel .

As for your net friend , at the first place if you intend to get strangers from the net just to help you on the invitation letter , what are the chances like that they will genuinely help a stranger? Put yourself in thier shoes...

Your friend who ask to pay the bill - Cost of living in England is extremly high. If it is 10-20 pound for the gas and water and in return saves you £100 for a week stay,
Wouldnt be a win-win situation for all ?
look at the bright side..at least you know you are contributing something and wont 'pai-seh' ( shy) to stay for free.
Just a gesture , even in Asian country - you tend to buy gifts ( buah tangan ) when u stayed someone house..He didnt ask for that...all he want is for you to contribute some of the bills which youwill be using anyway.
At least your friend is being frank...

Well said, Tuna....sometimes people just tend to take things for granted and feel that others are obliged to show them kindness. I am very disturbed to see that most Workingholidaymakers are just here to earn the pounds and not interested to travel at all! it should be working + holiday, hence the name for the Visa, why should you guys abuse it?

As for rude people. come on, be realistic, if you dont know that they are everywhere, it just shows that you havent been anywhere at all, i suggest all who wish to come here to dismiss that naivety before boarding the plane.

Europeans are beautiful and courteous people, you will discover that soon enough if you start mingling with them and stop hanging out with your own flock. Dont let them think that Malaysians are like all other asians, reserved and bored. Go to the club and start having some fun, life isnt only about money, you know...

well i can understand why i been fooling around when asking a stranger to write me an invitation letter but don't u you think it's funny when someone invite you to stay over their house for a week and then ask you to pay this and that?? even the amount is affordable to me but this is simply a rude invitation.

no lah felice i am still in Malaysia, 26 days more leaving to UK. give me ur email address i can send you the sample of invitation letter and travel plan but don't copy cat lo

yeah...i also feel like to meet more working holiday makers in UK . i think accomodation is the main key for us how much we can save or else if we looking for general jobs the salary always not much different.

If you had been contacted by a stranger from Indonesia asking you to write them a letter of invitation (let's assume that they require such a thing), would you have done it?

About this British you labelled as "friend." Is he really a friend you know, or just some internet contact? If he is someone you know in person, and he asked you to pay the bills even before you're there, then I wouldn't call him a friend. If he is just some random internet contact, then I wouldn't be surprised if you bumped into someone like that.

Obviously they were trying to take advantage from you. But think again. So were you when you asked them for "help."

I know quite a few people on this website who are British citizens. Even though we have been around this forums for a couple of years, we had not met before. When I decided to do this programme last year, I was offered help from them. A couple of them even offered me their places to stay when I arrived at her place in December. Another one who offered me a place is actually a friend of a TP member whom I had met in KL. I had only met him at LCCT KLIA for only an hour a year ago. He has been a very good friend ever since I came here, offering me his place to crash and also other means of help which mostly I didn't ask for. So who says British are completely a**holes (sic)? But then, as sure as I am that some of them are, some Malaysian are just as good too, if not better.

the point is i am happy if they simply say no if unable to do it but don't give any empty promise and did nothing in the end. it really wasting my time.
