Re: Auckland area

Mex, generally I sympathise with you, but in all honesty there's been some positive posts in your thread. Simonsi said if you live in say Blockhouse Bay or somewhere out to the west you can be at...

Re: Job offer in Auckland

Have you given up on Auckland? On $150k I would guess that you'd be in the top 20% of earning families. Even on 100k, you'd be in the top 40% I reckon And there are far more people moving here than...

Re: Extremism , terrism & hate speech discussion - NZ

In the spirit of hardhittingness seen in this thread, here's my take.
There's some pretty interesting hypocrisy in calling NZ racist AF on one hand and, allowing for paraphrasing, labelling kiwis...

Re: Lots of advice please

I read Simonsi that young Maori males account for a lot of the numbers. There are many different opinions as to why. Dont know if theres been any studies regarding immigrants.

Re: Lots of advice please

Yes NZ does have a very high suicide rate among the 15 to 19 age group. But to be absolutely fair its not the highest in the world. Sri Lanka has that distinction. NZs the highest among the 38 of the...

re: NZ is as racist as --

I could also be less than diplomatic about the comment re mocking of people who do well and that persons own attitude to same . I think I can build an analogy using glasshouses and stones somehow.

Re: Moving to NZ on a WH Visa

You beat me to it EtoNZ. About 120000 people live in Tauranga which is just down the road from KK about 50kms away. If youre on a WHV and are here during the picking season then Katikati is ideal if...

Re: Cambridge traffic?

If youre looking at Cambridge, it would be about the same travel time as somewhere like Papakura in Sth Auckland as well as Pukekohe. And quarter hour shorter to Pokeno. But as I said nothing wrong...

Amy Adams is the best bet from those three. Once the Trump experiment is over, empathy will be back in favour. Collins and empathy seem polar opposites. Nikki Kaye has most potential but maybe wisely...

Re: What are the best areas to live in around Aukland?

If youre travelling to and from work in a car at a 9 to 5 job then the journey will be at a snails pace on much of the Auckland motorways. If you have to travel at say 10 am to 2.30 pm its 80 to 100...

Re: Getting closer to moving day

Tons of golf courses but not so many around Hobsonville. Maybe Huapai is closest. About 15-20 mins away. You will rarely be much further than that from a course somewhere. Some of the country courses...

Re: UK v NZ grocery shopping comparison

I see whats happened Matt. On the first item on the list youve compared a 48 pack of size 4 nappies in UK with a 52 pack of size 6s in NZ. Big difference.

Re: UK v NZ grocery shopping comparison

But Matt the $23 NZ you quoted for nappies is for a 66 pk of good quality Treasures not Homebrand. You cant buy 66 nappies for £3.20 at Aldi. Come on.

Re: UK v NZ grocery shopping comparison

Also to be fair, most of the items on your list dont have weights, sizes or quantities. At a glance I looked at your first and last items. The $23 first item is for a huge 66 pack of nappies at the...
