    The real cost of emigrating to the UK

    I was in the same boat, it was literally stupidly costly to eat in SA compared to here. Like you said, 8k - 9k pm is rough but here, that 300 pounds is not even a weeks salary.

    The real cost of emigrating to the UK

    I find that the non chain places offer significantly more value. There's a pizza place here that serves huuuge burgers .... I'm a big boy and can only manage 1 and that's only 4.50, good value. And I love the weather up here in the north, lol :p

    The real cost of emigrating to the UK

    I've been lucky, the friends I have made through another expat friend are all huge meat eaters. At least one bbq going every week when it's possible and they are always heaving under the amount of vleis :laugh: Could have been worse and made friends who are vegans, eish!

    Unless they're eating filet and lobster daily yeah. Three adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs - 300 pm. And that is eating well with lots of meat per week. I make use of the 3 for 10 pounds meat specials often. Also have take out 2 or 3 times a month, that's never more than 20 pounds.

    The real cost of emigrating to the UK

    I'd go the Archer route if I had to answer anyone asking me. There may be a good service but after dealing with Animal Travel Services, I would never trust any of them, ever.

    The real cost of emigrating to the UK

    Nuts what the costs are for anyone without a British passport, jesus. I'm beyond glad they changed me being able to qualify through the mother or I'd be up shyte creek. It's a more real article than others ..... ignoring that stupid rent and 'basic groceries' for 2 being way overboard, lol.

    US protests/riots 2020

    Always attack from behind. These are the 'ideas' that cerebrus and gang wets their pants over and what they aspire to do. Love the cops doing shyte too.
