Place 49 – Day 358: Auckland – Brunch & A Chinese Takeaway

We woke up a little later today, but still with enough time for Kim to get ready and then go for brunch with Tabitha.

For brunch, they went to Honey Cafe, which Kim had never been to before. The food was excellent! Kim had french toast with bacon, banana & strawberries.

Kim left brunch with Tabitha and they then went up to Albany, which they went to for a bit of shopping. Well, mostly window shopping!

After a good few hours, Kim came home and when she got home, Curtis had just finished watching the Leafs game, so that was perfect timing!

We caught up and chilled out for a bit and then went out to get a chinese takeaway. We can’t think of the last time we got a Chinese takeaway.

We shared chicken curry and sweet & sour rice.

It was adequate, but still not great in comparison to the UK!

We watched A Murder on The Orient Express with dinner, which again, was adequate but not excellent.

Kim spoke with her family briefly, and then it was bedtime. Curtis is back at the client tomorrow and more than likely for the next week.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!

Place 49 – Day 351: Auckland – Picnic & Auckland Night Market

We woke up and had a small breakfast before Kim spoke with her family for a couple of hours.

When we were going to get showered, we noticed the water wasn’t very hot at all. We left it for 30 minutes and then it seemed back to normal, which was a relief!

We then went out to see our friends Vicki & Mike, and their children! We went to a park and had a nice little picnic and a catch up. The weather was much better today and the sun even warmed us up at times!

We then left the park and made our way back home to relax for a bit, before goung to Glenfield Mall for the night market, which happens at different locations around Auckland on different days of the week.

There is mostly food there, but a few other shops too.

We wanted some Asian food so, after having a walk around and even trying some Hungarian thin bread, which was tasty, we got a bao and some breaded chicken which we ate whilst walking around.

Before we left, we got some sweet chilli chicken with noodles as our main and a cheesecake dessert for Kim.

We got home and are our dinner whilst watching The Last Leg and then at 22:00, we spoke with Curtis’ family for a catch-up, which was lovely.

This time last year!

 

Poroporoaki!
