Dear Margaret Huang,

Please advise how do I do that, as I don't know your email to send such a document listed above.

I am not comfortable attaching any of such documents here for my privacy reason.

you can reach out to me on my email and I shall give you the proof of living in New Zealand, and I am pretty sure MBIE has my details in the record as this is not my first OIA request. So should be fairly easy to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Satish
