Hi

We are Toni, Malcolm, Brandon (13) and Tammy (5).  Malcolm is a Diesel Electric Fitter and on the skilled shortages list.  I am in Bookkeeping and Admin - altho I am hoping to do something completely different over there.  I have a passion for teaching people and helping people on the MS Office programs and using their PC's in general, so am hoping to get myself Microsoft Certified, so that I can pursue my dream job.  Malcolm is hoping to do something different too.   ;)

We got PR and famous blue stickers in Nov. 2006, house is sold and we leave the sunny shores of Cape Town on 20.06.07.  Have no idea where we will end up, altho Hamilton does look pretty nice.  I have a sister in Wellington and an old school friend in Auckland. 
And due to this site and another similar, I guess I have 'contacts' all over New Zealand.  :D

 :gl: to all and hopefully we will all meet soon on the other side of the planet.  :heeha:

MJ - your site is fine here. I just don't allow guys that should be paying for advertising, or exchanging links with our site to post their sites here.  O0

Stuckie - almost there  :envy: and I second what Colleen said  ;)

Tony, Bernice, Rayne (8) and Kurt (5) - we moved down from Pietermaritzburg to Durban in 2005.  Tony was in the SAPS, left in 2006 as he couldn't handle it anymore, I work in IT, System's Anaylist.  Tony has wanted to immigrate since 2002 to England but I have always put the breaks on for family reasons, anyway, we are so sick of the crime in this country and obviously we want the best for our kids, so we have decided to immigrate to NZ.

First off, we're Marilize (clinical psychologist and soon to be with the Dept of Corrections), Jacques (secondary school teacher) and Joshua (playstation guru extraordinaire and almost 5). 

Secondly, I am very perturbed at the disturbing slant of this thread.  What's with the North Shore?  Sure there are lots of Saffers there but quite frankly we're insinuating ourselves in every town here  ;D

There are quite a few of us in Palmy but really, we need to get the numbers up.  If they play nz-sa rugby matches here (which they do quite often) we need to at least have even representation.  So for the sake of your country, MOVE TO PALMERSTON NORTH!!!  You have a good varsity on your doorstep, low crime, affordable housing, child-friendly facilities and some excellent primary schools.  And the sun is overrated anyway  ;)
