Nek minnit, you'll be joining in the fun.
I’m really proud right now that New Zealand is having an open discussion about gender identity and gender roles, especially in children.
In case you missed it, the Christchurch Sunday Star Times ran a front page article and two full pages on a family and their child who is identifying as male.
News Talk ZB is currently discussing it. Tune in.
Today, I finally got one of those New World Little Shop mini blind-bag-things.
Inside was a baby Marmite jar and it is the cutest freaking thing in the entire world. I feel like I have been missing out on this craze.
(Someone make a meme about this.)
FELLOW KIWIS, IS IT TRUE THAT MUNCHOS ARE BACK IN STORES? Y/N?
AUCKLAND RESIDENTS ~ ATTENTION PLEASE!
So this baby has been hanging around our house for about 5 hours now, looking for my dog. I think it may be because she is on heat. However, our dog will not let him touch her (when he tries to mount her) so we aren’t too sure on what’s going on here. The dog has a red collar and a blue registration tag, so it obviously belongs to someone.
WE THINK IT IS A JAPANESE SPITZ.
PLEASE, IF YOU LIVE IN AUCKLAND (I’m in the East, but it could have come from anywhere), PLEASE PLEASE CONTACT ME [meditating.co.vu] or [facebook.com/iluvtfm]. If you could reblog this, it would be appreciated, but I understand if not. Thanks
Does this dog belong to you or a neighbor? :D Help us out, Kiwi Kiwis!
The Beautiful Windswept Trees of Slope Point, New Zealand
At the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand, you won’t find any houses but you will find some extremely dramatic scenery. Slope Point is predominantly sheep farming country but it has spectacular views of the sea over the rocky coastline and surrounding cliffs. It’s also where you’ll find some of the most interestingly shaped trees in the world.
Due to the strong winds that continually batter the region, a patch of trees permanently leans to one side, resulting in stunning photos that almost resemble paintings.
And there we go!
We’re a very helpful community, us Kiwis.
Oh goodness, I wouldn’t have a clue about the visas and things. I’m sure there’s website guides about that kinda thing. I remember reading such one but can no longer find it online. Your best bet is to carefully examine the NZ Immigration website.
I treat the Americans I know well. I don’t believe there’s any kind of particular stigma against Americans? I think the only thing that annoys Kiwis is when foreigners come here and proceed to complain about the country or constantly begin sentences with “In American we…”
An American living in New Zealand on tumblr once made a blog post about various things they hated about NZ. It didn’t go down well, especially since some of her complaints were simply her personal preferences regarding food and not at all representative of the country as a whole.
You should try and learn as much about New Zealand as possible. Check out websites like Stuff.co.nz, TVNZ, and 3News. That ought to give you some insight into what this country is like beyond we have pretty mountains and LOTR was filmed here. If you really want to move here, try and immerse yourself in some of our culture so that when you do move, it isn’t a total cultural shock.
This is my personal opinion at least. I am sure if you weren’t on anon, people would be more than happy to send you advice. There is likely to be a few Americans living in New Zealand on tumblr.
P.S Sorry for this being late, I did not see this message until now.
