@ Mad Scientist - The is only one label on my resident visa. I can't find any section 18a clause on the label. We will be in Tauranga in September. I hope the weather gets better by then!

As for new born baby traveling in plane - I personally hate crying babies everytime I take a flight, so we'll try all means (breast feeding, pacifier etc) to make the experience easier for our baby. We really don't have a choice to delay the date cuz husband is starting new job in September. Will also get the go ahead from the gynae to make sure baby is healthy enough to travel :)

Strange, when you applied for PR definitely there will be some docs which will state the section 18a. I am looking one right now belonging to one Sger here and it states clearly the section 18a.
Tauranga will be OK but windy. Nice place and beach especially Whitianga
For baby, ask the doctor for some medication to make them sleep during flight. Do not get it from the pharmacy . Go to the GP and it will be drug free liquid

Actually SMS I did ask and was told it should be no problem. And yes the baby would have been able to communicate to me if she was uncomfortable; crying is the mode of communication at that age. Fortunately for me she slept through taking off and landing, maybe sucking a pacifier helped.

I did the same. I took our daughter on a 6 weeks vacation from Singapore to Hong Kong to New Orleans to Houston to Tampa/Orlando to Washington DC & back when she was 3 months old and would just pop a little 3 oz bottle of water into her mouth while the plane was on the runway and before descent on each flight. Works like a champ. I never used a dummy/pacifier with any of my children thereby eliminating the frustrating task of weaning them off the damn thing. You can't wait until they start crying because then it's too late and the Eustachian tubes are already closed and you cannot explain to a baby why and how to unblock them. But I didn't need a doctor to tell me that. I've been a sport/commercial diver for more'n 40 years. :wink:

thanks for the heads up and i hope everything is well down in "boot" country. i miss it!

btw, do you know if the scientists are predicting more quakes? part of the reason why i left was because the 100 year quake was way over due... i want to go back but not to earthquakes.


Well, do not quote me on this but what I do know is in Auckland there are at least 7 dormant volcanoes. How's that for a start ? You'll be burn and roasted before you know it !!. There are plenty around this country.

Last week EQ was from a different fault line. Since Feb EQ, they have located at least 4 new fault lines. The issue with CHCH is the city was built under soft ground. No one realise until the liquefaction starts popping up.
NIWA suspects there should be another shake in a year's time.

I have been too many countries with insurmountable hardship, if the people are resilient the city will pick itself up.
I was with Mercy Relief when the Tsunami Struck in Aceh, the devastation was beyond belief. It really breaks my hearts with so many bodies everywhere. As an Indonesian, I see this with sadness at the destruction it has caused. Now look at Aceh , it is up and running again with better control and better infrastructure
Kiwis are famous for their resilient when face with difficulties
Like what they always said here "SH*T happens mate !!

Hi MrsLaw,
How are you and baby? May I know when in Aug 2011, your baby is going to be deliver? If it is at Thomas Medicial, get the nurse to pass you the form for making the birthcert and get it done real quick. Usually, they advised that you could do this and do that and patient didn't understood how troublesome to do it much later and come back again, (Drive in,parking) later on. Since the first 2 days, you could be resting in the hospital, try to take 5 mins to settle so things(need to do) else, can't see things ahead and it could wipe out all your time. Have a happy baby.
