My resolve to eat healthy has taken a few set backs. K and I like to try out the different kinds of junk food while we are here, after all its all part of the experience
The vegetarian pizza with fries, for some reason pickles (gherkins, whatever) are provided with the pizza, along with hot sauce.
I was hanging out for a chippie sandwich (which has to be with vegemite as all Kiwis and Aussies on this site can attest to; more chips did go in the sammie). The onion ring chips were good too.
Here's a toast to Casskickass, Cass beer is good!
This cake was a gift on Teachers Day - May 15, apparently in the country Teachers day is a big deal and parents and students give gifts (usually food) to the teachers and the kids also go and visit their old teachers. I also witnessed students (in groups) singing songs for their teachers. My co-teacher said this didn't really happen in the cities. There is no Teachers Day in NZ - I think we should have one
. I don't really do sponge cakes but this was light and delicious. The cream was less sweet than it would be in NZ but I liked that.
Hamming it up with K's favourite ice cream here (so far), there are pieces of gum in the stick.
The biscuits are good but each 'cookie' is individually wrapped. Why, who knows....
There's no photo but one of the students gave me this yellowish strip of something the other day, they were stuffing it in their mouths, it looked like cellotape - but I appreciated the offer and ate it, thankfully it didn't taste like cellotape, it didn't really taste of anything.
Off the food topic, it hosed down here the other day and when I got to school these blue bins were put out for the umbrellas, there is one per class and one for the teachers. This is a good idea but in NZ the nicer umbrellas would be pinched (infact even the less nice umbrellas would be pinched).
For those who asked here is a photo of K's girly bed
(she just couldn't deal with some of the pink bedding so it is not shown)
I did manage to go for a run this morning, first run since I have been here. I went early before most people are up. Getting stared at maybe the norm but it does wear thin sometimes - especially when one's chest is collasping - haha.
