Although I prefer living in Auckland to other parts of NZ, I agree that the city centre is terrible. It must be one of the dullest city centres on the planet. I remember the day we arrived and us running around trying to find the heart of Auckland and it was nowhere to be seen!

But, you have to go further out and about to find the pleasant areas to live. The city centre is just a container port with shops on the side.

I just think a civillized person can't stand being in JAFAland. It's as Simple as That

Not only _deadly dull_ also messy, totally disorganized, characterless, souless and lack of intelligence

and

more importantly

ppl are unattractive..........the way they talk, the way they behaviour

Thanks god - I definitely don't have (and probably never will) an unsexy Kiwi accent and/or I am from here originally.

I'm pretty civilized, housetrained, smart and look ok in a misty light and i love Auckland
Life's what you make it and I have a great job, great friends and live in a nice neighbourhood that's near enough to beaches and bush.
People bag Auckland but it's great and diverse too
