ADO16 counter at E. Hayes & Sons. It’s an #Austin Mk II, though there’s no way of telling if it’s an 1100 or a 1300 without checking. @toycarsatwork Dean, this is similar to the grille on the Morris 1300 Mk III in the other photo. It’s a few years older (it’s from a Mk II) so there’s more chrome, and from the slightly more high-line Austin brand, but the sheetmetal would be the same. #BMC #BLMC #BL #UK #retro #England #Midlands #car #waka #NZ #Aotearoa #Southland #Waihōpai #travel #Lucire #Invercargill #history

Ferns pancake incoming in Pureora Forest.  From pikopiko and kiokio fern, even it was pretty overcooked at the end of the process, the wild taste was there !

Still need to improve the cooking method, and learn how to spot easier young fiddleheads !

In New Zealand, when you see a lookout sign on the road and decide to make a stop, you can be lucky to find a view like this ✨ (and yes, I’m always captured trying to take a picture haha)

Another stunning Central Otago day, looking out across the Hawea Flat, Mt Grand in the distance. A few days of rain would be welcomed that’s for sure!

Lighthouse was first built in 1874 and has been meticulously refurbished and rebuilt using pieces from the original building. It has been relocated to a new site beside the Manukau Heads Signal Station platform which has been on this site since 1865. Amazing views of the Manukau Heads and Bar can be seen from this view point.

⚡️PSA⚡️Shout about it - our Prime Minister is pregnant! This from @jacindaardern : “And we thought 2017 was a big year! Clarke and I are really excited that in June our team will expand from two to three, and that we’ll be joining the many parents out there who wear two hats. I’ll be Prime Minister AND a mum, and Clarke will be “first man of fishing” and stay at home dad. I think it’s fair to say that this will be a wee one that a village will raise, but we couldn’t be more excited. I know there will be lots of questions, and we’ll answer all of them (I can assure you we have a plan all ready to go!) But for now, bring on 2018.” Further evidence of @jacindaardern being the most ordinary-extraordinary person we have the good fortune to behold. .

Largest glacier in New Zealand, A lot of melting and not a lot of flowing so I just ending up with an icy lake. I guess it was still worth the walk🙃🙃

MALIE, TANIFA X JOHNNY PENISULA

An ode to the traditional Samoan song of the same name and a depiction of the two ocean deities, the shark and the devil fish, as they fight for dominance over the sea.

Carved from a single piece of gabbro stone the top half depicts the Malie and the lower half is the Tanifa. Unique to this piece is the strip of red that runs through it's middle, this is the lesson as explained to me by Johnny. The stone tells you what to do, not the other way around.

Stone from Te Waipounamu singing a song of Samoa.

Too Choice.

This photo was taken last year by @russkleyn with the model wearing one of our Junya Watanabe white shirts. The models relaxed pose reminded me that it’s Wellington Anniversary Day on Monday so we will be closed for the day. We’re open today and tomorrow as per usual so pop in & check out our other fantastic white shirts. You can never have too many of them! @commedesgarcons #junyawatanabe #whiteshirt #classicstyle #sale #no16 #16jessiestreet #wellington #aotearoa

People often ask why my Bao has ears/spikes. Well three years ago back when @judgebaonz was an idea in a notepad, I was researching all kinds of steam buns, origins and translations. I came across a London born Chinese guy talking about how his grandad told him that you know when your charsiu Bao is ready because it should be laughing. I really loved this terminology, so we made all our Bao laugh.  So this is our way of bringing happiness through food. I also wanted to introduce my love of Chinese culture and food through bread as in every culture we break bread.
