Moving up in the world.

I thought Hastings getting an underground parking lot at Pak n Save was the bomb, then they started building Carls Jr.

Just this week, McDonalds Hastings bought back the legendary Steak & Cheese Georgie Pie, Burger King got new arena toys for their restaurant and today Carls Jr opened on the corner of Heretaunga and Nelson. Due to the long line at the drive-thru, cars were back up to the Hastings chapel round about - 400m. That's 4 rugby fields long incase you needed clarification.
All for a burger that tastes alot like BK.
They charbroil too.

Looked over the menu.
Don't remember hot dogs being sold in Carls Jr USA, but everything looks fab. I'll go when the hype eases .. or when everyone runs out of money because it's pretty expensive. My only wish is that they sided it with Green Burrito like they do in the US.

Welcome to Hastings Carl.
Enjoy your stay.

I like the new Hastings.
I may never leave.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
