At the airport, grab your luggage quickly. There are people who will grab it and put it on a trolley, insisting that they are there to help you. To claim it back you will have to give them a huge tip. These people aren't even airport staff and it's an easy way for them to profit from foreigners.
Pick-pockets are very good; if you're a guy steer clear of the ladies who want change for a coffee because before you know it, your wallet has vanished!

Have a good trip!

Re: Mabuhay! hello from a Filipino

Hi All,
Just found this thread again and wanted to say hi to everyone!

Frilipina, can't help you on the apartments front, but if you'd like to meet up once you get to the Lausanne area for coffee/ lunch...or mass , just send me a PM ok?

How about badminton? Anyone still getting to play now that they're here?
If you're in Lausanne and want to meet up for this or just kwentuhan...PM na lang Went to mass in Geneva by chance a few months ago and there was really surprised to see such a big Pinoy community! Wish we had one here as well

Re: Mabuhay! hello from a Filipino

Hi,

I noticed this thread is way back in 2008. I am a filipino and I just arrived here 2 weeks ago. Is there a popular place where my fellow filipinos go to or is there an active community group?

-Michael

Hi, Salie!

Welcome! I am living in Fribourg but I am in Bern everyday. I have been here for 6 months. If you don't mind to meet up with me, we can set a date and have a coffee and a good discussion.

Re: Mabuhay! hello from a Filipino

Hello everyone! Filipino here working in Dubai. Just registered as a new member here in the English Forum Switzerland. And Just earlier today I met 2 old ladies from Switzerland, and they suggested me to go to their country because jobs are well-paying, people could work though they are on tourist visas and the government would not just let any foreigners go back to their home country even if they don't have any contracts yet. According to them, foreigners are given longer time to find jobs. From a short conversation with them, I felt excited to work and live in Switzerland. Could anybody tell me if this is correct or give me more ideas/truths about living and working in Switzerland?

By the way, I am working as a Receptionist/ Navigator of the aquarium facility of a famous 5-star hotel in Dubai. This is where I met them and they suggested Zurich and Basel where there are also aquariums for possible employment.

Re: Mabuhay! hello from a Filipino

Hi,

I just moved here in Zug (3mos) and is currently still unemployed so have lots of free time. Would be nice for me to have a chat with kababayans out here to know much about their experiences when they moved here, or also for those who recently moved here like me, to do and learn things together. Hope to meet new friends

Re: Mabuhay! hello from a Filipino

Hi Barry30,
for we, Filipinos for sure we are very much qualified to all works/jobs in CH, but only one problem, language. most company in CH require one official language of CH, German(High German, Swiss-German) or French and others. Studying foreign language is too expensive here in our country.

I'll be in Geneva, CH this august 2011.
