Quoting THE KATIE PRICE:" An American woman once said to me she hated australia because we have no song birds. Our birds annoyed her. What is a common bird for you?"

We have tons of birds where I live. I mostly see burrowing owls, black birds, turkey vultures, and pelicans.

It's a sweat cream, but it's based with oil, instead of dairy. It's nasty. To me, anyway.

Cool whip tastes like wax.

Amazing foods. Tacos, enchiladas, tamales, beans, rice, stuff like that. Do you guys not have those types of foods? Dusty asked how I'd feel about moving to Australia one day, if you guys don't have those foods that's a deal breaker :?

I just read through parts of this whole thread and learned so much lol. Im surprised you Americans didnt let the Aussies know the difference between jelly and jam. It is not the same thing! jelly is made from juice of fruit and jam is made from the actual fruit pulp. Jam is much superior. And preserves are even more superior to jam :D



Do you Aussies really enjoy the taste of all the "mites"? vegemites, marmite, as much as we American think you do? I tasted some once, I couldnt fathom the thought its really as popular as it seems!

We do, not as common as others though and until recently they were done very badly in Mexican resturaunts.
Now foods like that have become trendy again and are more popular and better done. The new craze is taco trucks that sell fish tacos.



There isn't a big Latino population here, I guess our foods are generally influenced from the countries people immigrate from.

Ha, yeah, I am on the Mexican border, you have a giant ocean in between :lol: I can see how it wouldn't be influenced much. I LOVE taco trucks and stands and push carts. I miss living in San Antonio, there were push carts on every corner almost. The corn was AMAZING.
