Not my very best birthday when Michael headed back to Palmerston North. My aunt and I went to Food Alley for some authentic cheap eats, and it was good. She loved (and still talks about) the Korean BBQ which only cost $12, and I got Laksa and Korean tofu stew and bok choy. We stayed at the Stadium Waldorf Apartment in CBD, pretty close to the water and easy walking to everywhere. The apartment is great, has two bedroom, and nice dryer/washer, kitchen, and even a balcony. It is not super child-friendly but it’s really nice. My aunt and I took the boys to the Yum Cha just down beach road and we loved our day trip to Waiheke Island.
Yum Cha, Waiheke Island and the ferry ride to the island. Boys loved playing on the ferry, climbing stairs and sleeping the whole way back.
In Hind Sight:
This particular apartment is hard for us to move our stuff even though they have their parking space but it’s in a different building, on a different level.
I will miss Lin and Li at this age, they are much less fussy, they are like little explorers and sometimes big people – they get so excited about every little thing and their laughs are so genuine – can’t they be any cuter?
