Is my salary enough..

Now that I have your attention... a big hello to everyone. I am from South India and have been living in Olten (yes yes the town which LIB loves so much) for about a year now. I have been lurking around here for quite some time now

(long enough to know that the biggest mistakes that you can do around here are

a)ask if a salary of 120K is enough to survive in Switzerland
b)where to get brown sugar
c)call Switzerland Swiss


)

This forum has provided loads of great information to me whenever required (the search function here is definitely our friend)..I have joined hopping that I can also make some small contributions to the forum.

Well thats all from me. Have a great friday everyone...

Re: Is my salary enough..

You made me giggle too.

Assassin, there is actually a very good restaurant in Olten called Felsenburg, a dozen of us Zurchers actually made the train journey there especially because it was so yummy.

Welcome to the forum.

Here's my tip:

Getting out of Olten
He's been living in Olten for a year already and once you've spent a certain time here, it will suck you in and make you grey so you blend in with the environment. Trains do run frequently, but none of them stops...it's like the friggin Truman Show, when you try to leave some weird thing happens, ether the ocean rises, extraterrestials block the highway....etc. or better, Groundhog Day! You can try to leave but always wake up to Sonny and Cher...every friggin day. But yeah, at least it's Friday.

Re: Is my salary enough..

Ha Ha......

I only opened this thread to the humilation of someone who "can't" use a search function.


But it seems you can use it very well.


Congratulations, and a very warm welcome.


Awesome first post and Intro !!!

Great thread title and welcome to the forum!

I was actually confused as to whether to use 'Is my salary enough' or 'quest for 6 piece KFC'... didnt know which of these would get more attention..
