Archives For Melbourne

27/03/2018メルボルンからアデレードへと移動した。
本当はメルボルンに落ち着く予定だったのだが、意外と仕事探しに苦労したのが大きな理由だ。メルボルンは大きなシティーだから仕事の募集はたくさんあるだろうと考えて動いてきたのだが、メルボルンが良い待ち過ぎて仕事を求めてやってくる人が多く、仕事の需要と釣り合わないらしい。もちろん職種を選ばなければいくらだって仕事はあるだろう。

それと、長くいるつもりでシェアハウスに移ったのだが、ここでまた僕のbad luck。日本人と他のアジア人もいると聞いて決めたのだが、実際は5人日本人、1人香港人。そして1人の日本人がボス気取りで毎日のようにパーティー、ドラッグ。それが2amを過ぎても。いるんだよね、こういう海外に出てきて調子にのる日本人って。uncool。別に何しようが人の勝手だから良いけど、シェアハウスのリビングを占領して毎晩好き勝手に騒がれるのには我慢できず、丁度仕事探しにも苦戦していたところで動くことにした。
27/03/2018 I moved to Adelaide from Melbourne.
I was thinking to stay for a long in Melbourne, but unexpectedly that was hard to find a job. That is a big reason. I thought there is a lot of job vacancies in such a big city Melbourne. But the truth is many people think like that and move to Melbourne for seeking a job. Also Melbourne is a too nice city according to some reputations. So the demand of job does not balance with the number of job seekers. Although if you do not choose a type of job, you could get one quite possibly.
I moved to a shared house for assuming long stay. But here my bad luck comes. I heard there are Japanese and other nationalities living. In fact, 5 Japanese and only one Honking guy who is really quiet. The thing is one of the Japanese guys is so bossy and he does whatever he wants. He uses the house like its his. Every night he invites his friends and have a party, taking drugs, drinking even beyond 2am. That was so disgusting and annoying, also I do not like bossy guy. I do not care what people do. But I can not live with like them under the same roof. That was also the trigger of my moving.

14/03/28からメルボルンに移ってきた。まずメルボルンのダウンタウンに行って感じたのが東京を思い出させるような人の多さ。道を歩いていて人とぶつかるのを避けないと歩けないのは久しぶりだ。世界で1番住みやすいと言われている都市だけあって、確かに町並みはとても綺麗で、雰囲気が張り詰めてなくどこか居心地の良さを感じる。
ダウンタウンから出た郊外はどこもゆったりとしていて、ダウンタウンに行かない限りはここがオーストラリアで2番目に大きい都市とは感じさせない静かさがある。
物価については、自炊をすればそこまで高くつかないかなと思う。ただ野菜とフルーツは物によってかなり高い。時期の物とオーストラリア産の物を選んで買えばコストを抑えられると思う。1番辛いのは、交通費が高い。1週間のパスで40ドルぐらい。月パスだと150ドル。バンクーバーに住んでいるときの倍の値段なのは辛い。後は、ジムに通おうと思ったのだが、どこもだいたい月100ドルから。プラス入会費。カナダで通っていたジムは月30ドルだった。コミュニティーセンターでも月60ドルぐらい。だからかなり高くつくように感じ、オーストラリアではジムに通うのは諦めることにした。そして、オーストラリアではどこも映画の値段がパースと同じく10ドルかと思ったら、こっちでは基本24ドル。高すぎる。
僕がメルボルンの1番好きなところは、週末になるとYarra River沿いのレストラン通りのいたるところで路上演奏があり、タダで音楽を聴きながらゆっくりとRiverの側を歩くこと。
14/03/28, I moved to Melbourne. The first impression when I walked in downtown was the crowd of people that reminded me Tokyo. When I walk on the street, I have to avoid bumping to people. It is been a while to feel the business. But I feel comfortable in Melbourne as I heard Melbourne is the best city in the world. The cityscape is beautiful everywhere, there are many amazing, artistic buildings, and the atmosphere is not so tense and busy.
There is also nice quietness in suburb. That does not make me feel I am in Melbourne that is the second biggest city in Australia.
Speaking of the prices, If you cook at home, that does not cost a lot, I guess. Some kinds of fruits and vegetables are really expensive. But the seasonable kinds and Australian ones are reasonable. The hardest thing living in Melbourne is transportation cost. Weekly bus pass is for about  $40. That is almost double price of  Vancouver.  And also I wanted to go to a gym as I used to go in Canada, but most of gyms start up from $100 monthly plus one time only membership registration fee. That was just $30 in Canada. So I feel really expensive going to a gym here. That is why I give up working out at gym and do some at home instead. Moreover, a movie ticket was $10 in Perth everyday. So I thought that is $10 to watch a movie everywhere in Australia. I felt so happy. Then I went to a cinema i Melbourne expecting to pay just $10. But, but that was  about $24 or something. 3D or IMAX are ore than that. Too expensive. I think Tuesday is a discount day like in Canada. So I think I just go to a cinema on Tuesday. Personally speaking, Perth is a great city at that point.
My most favourite thing in Melbourne is walking along river with listening street music for free on weekends.

14/03/18からメルボルンに移った。当初、パースで仕事を見つけて、そこに長く住む予定でいたのだが、思っていたよりもシティーが小さく中々仕事探しは大変そうだった。あまりオプションがないというか、できる事が限られている。それに加え大きな理由は、もう少し南に行くと気候が涼しいと聞いたから。もう少し大きな町に行こうと思い、思いついた場所はメルボルンか、シドニー。シドニーは逆に都会すぎるような気がして、オーストラリアで2番目に大きい都市のメルボルンに行くことにした。

14/03/18, I moved to Melbourne.
At first, I was planning to settle down in Perth, find a job and live for a long. But I thought the city of Perth is a bit small and it might be hard to find a job. Which means it is limited what I can do out there. Moreover, the big reason of the movement is Perth is too hot for me. And I heard when you go to more south side, the climate is cooler.
I decided to go to a bigger city and got two options. One is Sydney, and the other one is Melbourne. I felt like Sydney is too urban for me, so I chose going to Melbourne that is the second biggest city in Australia.
