Place 49 – Day 277: Auckland – Curtis’ 23rd Birthday!

We wanted to sleep for a bit today, but we both woke up wide awake at 09:00!

Kim went out and got McDonald’s for breakfast and popped to the shop to get some ingredients for a surprise for Curtis!

In the morning, Kim made mini cinnamon buns, which were great!

Other than this, we did absolutely nothing all day! We played games together, watched TV together and just chilled out. Perfect!

We did have to do some shopping, but that also meant a visit to Little Things again for a coffee, which is now our Sunday tradition.

We finished the shopping and came home. Kim looked up some places for dinner and decided on Tok Tok in Takapuna, which is an Asian fusion restaurant we heard a lot of good things about.

For starters, we shared a Wagyu beef & sriratcha mayo steamed bun which was divine!

For the rest of our meal, we had Shaking Beef (beef with some sort of sauce and vegetables) and crispy duck!

The beef was so-so but the duck was excellent. lovely and crispy!

For dessert, we saw some other people had Vietnamese coffee, so we had one of those each which were amazing as always!

Interesting For From Curtis Here!

We got home around 21:00 and it felt really late! We chilled out for the rest of the evening, had a beer and a whiskey and headed to bed.

It’s been the perfect birthday for Curtis, just completely relaxing and eating great food.

Curtis is off to a client in Thames for the day tomorrow, which is a 1.5 hour drive away so that will be fun!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
