They call it Peking Duck, and it's on the menu (with pancakes!) at http://www.harboursidetauranga.co.nz/OUR-MENU/STARTERS_IDL=2_IDT=1791_ID=10588_.html . Personally I miss crispy chilli beef.

Re: Disaster on the $ front

I don't think it will go higher than 2.5 for a year or so at least. I say that in the hope that it will be as wrong as all my other currency predictions. :)

Re: Extra moving costs - de-vanning

We had the same sort of thing with PSS/NZ Van Lines but they did it at their depot and only used two guys for a 20' container, cost about $200 extra as I recall.

Re: Comparing banks for online banking features...

Yes that's what I mean, Visa Electron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_Electron) (and before that Visa Delta), but I see they are phasing those out now in the UK.

Re: I could do a little help from a TV boffin.
