Well....it's worth a try.

I'm sporty enough...but it's the wrong sport...still, we have (covers eyes) Wellington Phoenix starting in the A-league soon. Wellington Dodo would have been a better name.
He didn't go away! Should've offered him a greenback. Hard currency
always does the trick.

I feel for you. You'd better start getting used to wincing if you're
going to live happily in Kiwiland.

If you want to be shocked, eat some real island food: canned
corned beef, boiled taro, povi masima, and KFC.

Tonga, Samoa, Nieue, Tokelau. And their skirts come in different styles.
The women tend to wear flowery dresses.

The squalid house across the street is lived in by native born Kiwis
or "Palangi" as Samoans say (Pakeha in Maori), so there's
a good mix of peoples. I once saw them at the local Countdown.
Nosy as I am I took note of what groceries they were buying. Mostly
sausages (saussies!), of course. With a smattering of canned Watties
spaghetti thrown in for variety.

Aren't 'watties' those insects in the photo?

(That was a joke, before anyone starts)

If you want KFC culture shock, the Japanese eat KFC as their Xmas dinner, which they celebrate on December 24th.
