Tommy Millions (Coffee Deal)

Guys, Tommy Millions on Featherston Street are doing a $2.00 coffee deal between 8am-11am until Friday this week, any size, any style. I had one and it’s pretty darn good coffee – and the weather is perfect for taking your affordable beverage to nearby Midland park for a sip in the sun.

Just a heads up!

大年初一的生日

不善于计划的我,以往对农历新年落在哪一天都不怎么在意,除了今年。因为今年是我第一次在国外过的新年,所以在去年十月出发前就查了它的日期,意外地发现大年初一竟然和我的生日落在同一天!相信人生没有意外的我,觉得这个巧合一定有特别的意义。

新年对我来说其实也没什么特别意义,每年初一我都睡到很迟,然后就看电视吃年饼无聊地过。生日对我来说也一样没什么特别意义,由于靠近新年,正日都没人陪我过,所以我都会留些时间给自己胡思乱想,为赋新词强说愁。

今年在国外的第一个年初一加生日,我不想再睡到迟迟了,来点改变吧。大树珝这里有辆脚车,就去骑车吧。

骑去哪里?刚好有朋友搭车去下一站会在奥克兰停留几小时,查了查Google map,24公里、骑车需时1小时半,冲吧!

最后花了两小时多才到达目的地,多数时间花在停下看谷歌地图确认方向。还好我早出门,原来她们3人要分开工作了,最小的妹妹要到Hamilton摘蓝莓,刚好赶得上送她上巴士,另外两人则下Te Puke选奇异果。

出门前顺手带了3粒柑,送她们一人一粒,结果换来了一顿免费的生日午餐。谢谢你们!我好像常常被人请吃啊,搞得自己好像骗吃的人……唯有安慰自己,我人缘好,上辈子一定是个超级好人。

送了两人上巴士后,听到附近有舞狮的鼓声,当然要过去瞧瞧热闹!终于感受到一些农历新年气氛了。

回程,那脚车竟然像上次一样,骑着骑着车头开始松了。一开始以为可以坚持到回去再锁紧它,可是它越骑越松,离家还有好大一段距离。如果突然脱落,我无论骑多慢也肯定会翻车……

我试图用手锁紧它,可是没有Allen Key的帮助根本无法真正锁紧它,每骑一段路就松了。这样下去我应该三小时都到不了家吧?

刚好来到一家出租车的店,有几个人在洗车,我就硬着脸皮进去问:
My bike have some problem, do you have Allen key so that I can fix it? 47 more words

Keep Tairua Tidy

I’ve been taking a good look at myself lately. I am making an attempt to change the things I don’t like. Kinda like a makeover! Or more like a make-under, without the makeup, which just covers flaws. 291 more words

NZ.... Oh Wow!!!

We arrived in Christchurch, NZ (South Island for those without a map), unsure of what we’d think with it being a city and all!

We were some what shocked with the devastation from the earthquake some 5 years ago! 1,949 more words

Goat Island coastal walk

Goat Island is only 10 minutes drive from home and the first marine reserve in New Zealand established in 1975. Even though overcast and a little drizzly that day, it was a rewarding, short (45-minute return) walk with a wonderful look out and bench to marvel and ponder at the choppy sea. 24 more words

The things I learned from being a Politics student: a monologue

You are probably ready for a pretentious post about academia and how Politics students are superior. Well, you are correct. Just kidding. But I have had to learn to defend my field of study, especially when I get the reaction of either “Isn’t that really boring?” or “Ha ha, are you going to be a corrupt politician?” The answer to nearly any question about politics is always no. 1,712 more words

Rainbow skink or Copper skink?

I caught this little skink scuttling across my bedroom floor the other day. Native copper skink or introduced rainbow skink I wondered? Well, in suburban Auckland most likely it’s rainbow but the easy way to tell for sure is to look at the… 73 more words
