    Default Kuddlykoalas

    Hi there people

    Well its been two months now and we are having a ball in our new home of New Zealand.

    Our blog that've we've had going since our travels in the Far East, just has a few photos and stories of our experiences and might be of some use or interest to people in/thinking of coming to NZ.

    thanks, tom and rache (kuddlykoalas) :)

    I work for Telecom too! The Yellow Pages part, in Penrose.

    Where are you "Koala's" from originally?

    Yeah. As kuddlykoalas, we are more the kuddly than the koalas, being originally from UK and nothing to do with Oz.

    How are you enjoying working for Telecom? Been here long?

    Rachel, in your blog I noticed a mention of paint brushes - what medium, what sorts of subjects? I love seeing what sorts of art other people make.

    It's kind of the typical big business, and in some ways they seem to still think they are a monopoly (well, Yellow Pages still is). Yellow Pages isn't bad, they've tried to shed some of the buerocratic stuff.

    What part of Telecom are you with?

    Been here 15 months now. Worked for Yellow Pages for 9 months.

    I've applied for a transfer to go to Wellington, as I want to live/experience another part of the country (ok, that was a nice way of saying I want get out of Auckland ;-) [size=3:ef93a9885f]I don't share the affection for Auckland that you do (to me it's like any other mid-big sized city, it's faster paced than the rest of NZ, and it's not as spectacular as the rest of the country).[/size:ef93a9885f]

    Hi there, am working for Telecom Mobile on the top (15th) floor of Telecom House, which is just by the corner of K Road and Ponsonby Road- pretty good view of the city from there, too good sometimes, distracting me from my all important work....

    Rache is getting her art website together- she works mostly in acrylics on canvas and an increasing amount of photoshop designs

    tom :)
