My Avengers review

We finally got to watch Avengers last weekend.  It is a highly-anticipated movie event ever since the first Iron Man movie came out a couple of years ago.   And what was initially a plan to just go out with a friend became a group of 7 guys, so watching the movie became quite an event by itself!

New park, new hobby

One day my son asked me about making and flying a kite. Wow, that was decades ago, back when I was still a kid myself and we flew kites in Burnham Park in Baguio, my hometown in the Philippines. I am familiar with the diamond-shaped kite, but it's been so long I'm not sure if we can make one from scratch and ensure that it flies.

The Kiwi Accent

Just like we have a Filipino accent, so do the Kiwis.  For a while I struggled to understand what they say; I'm getting there.  But it's all good, as Wellington is truly a multicultural city and it helps that it is such a friendly community too! (Plus, it's not only me who struggles with the accent).

Incidentally, other cultures such as Pacific Islanders and also the Maori lend a unique blend into it all.  It makes for such interesting interactions.  To illustrate my point, here are some local TV commercials.
