Default 1 week in. Things are good.

After a week tomorrow things here in Oz are going well. The wife has scored a job as a dental assistant. I have 2 jobs on offer. Got to meet a guy tomorrow and discuss one. The other is a start on Monday. So either way i'm covered. Still staying with a mate but we are looking for an apartment. The missus is enjoying Sydney. After living in Bangkok for years, she is blown away by how beautiful Sydney is. So ye, a week in and alls good. The missus is happy so easy for me. BTW i have never seen so many mullets in one place in all my life.

If it was anything like when I went to Medicare, they will probably want 100 points of ID, finger and retina prints, a DNA sample, and a sworn affidavit that you won't leave the country at any point in the next 10 years!

I'm still not registered, and I've been here 3 months! Stupid *#!$*%s!

Generally it takes about 10 days for you to be put into the system by immigration. So maybe they just didn't have you on the computer yet.
