Hi Shareon, Reg. dress code: Yes, there is a dress code for interviews and for work in general. It is normally pant/shirt or skirt/shirt. I would suggest you to get some formal clothes. You can wear salwar when you are going out with your family or may be occasionally to work but not always! Reg. Centrelink payment: It varies from family to family. Centrelink will guide you through that if you contact them directly during the first week or so after you come here. Reg. shipping services: We also shipped things like mixer/grinder. It cost around 15000 Rs. (if I remember right). You can go through Yellow Pages and get quotes from different agencies and choose the one that you think is ok. I would have given you the name of the one we used but I cannot remember it now. We made sure that they wrapped the items in front of us and then carried it. Also do not forget to make a list of things that you send in shipping. Shareon, our house is just enough for our family; if it was any bigger, I would've certainly asked you to stay with us until you find a place for yourself, sorry. All the best.
