Moved to Christchurch:
Why did you choose to move to Christchurch?
After I had just migrated to Australia, I got a job offer from Allied Telesis, which is based in Christchurch.
After doing some research about Christchurch on the Internet and from friends in New Zealand, we were keen to experience the balanced lifestyle and raise our family in a safe and clean environment with easy access to the great outdoors.

Allied Telesis delivers Internet protocol (IP)/Ethernet network solutions to the global marketplace.
What does your job involve?
I develop technical documentation for our router and switch products. Documents include software references, installation guides and marketing blurbs.
What do you enjoy about your job?
I work in a very supportive team in an international company. It fits my skill sets and I have access to a gym and swimming pool.
The company premises is also close to where I live.
How do you see your career progressing?
I plan to develop documentation for world-class products and to become more technology-oriented.
Tell us about your lifestyle in Christchurch:
Fun at work:
I have joined the social club, which regularly organises activities for members.
There is a whole lot to explore in New Zealand. We have easy access to the reserves, parks, lake, hills and beaches.
Life in Christchurch:
I have to say, life is really convenient and easy in Christchurch. Shopping centres, parks, work premises and reserves are so close to where you live – you save a lot in commuting.
There are also many Chinese restaurants and shops that sell ingredients for Chinese cooking.
