Re: Cost of Renovating A House?

It depends on whether you're going to use a builder, in which case expect to add 40% to your costs. We got rid of our handyman masquerading as a builder as soon as I received his quotes and...

Re: MH370 - Kuala Lumpur to Beijing - missing

Re: Commonwealth Bank - be warned - charges

FWIW:

Just checked my own account with CWB - we transfer funds from our overseas account regularly. No charges have been deducted for any incoming deposits by CWB.

Re: Should teens be made to do chores?

Now that the VCEs are out of the way, she cleans her room and bathroom (when she feels like it). She cooks her...

Re: Commonwealth Bank - be warned - charges

Re: Commonwealth Bank - be warned - charges

I think most banks charge you for an incoming transfer. This charge depends on what the correspondent bank (of your bank overseas - e.g. ANZ, Barclays in Australia) charges to process the wire...

Re: One of those times you hope the BBC is wrong.

Do you honestly think the DJs would have gone ahead with their prank had they even the slightest idea that it could all go so very wrong? I'm sure they must be wishing they hadn't done it at all.
