  1. Lol, I think the chopsticks are funny. I thought I was the only one who couldn’t use chopsticks well, coming from a Chinese family. I always found it hard to pick up the rice with chopsticks, you know? Good luck with chopsticks, using chopsticks is an art!


  2. Hey Kendel!

    It’s Jazz, the once upon a time blogger from a while ago haha! Started up a new one yay, along with a Bloglovin account that I have followed you on so will be more up to date now!

    Just had a nosey through your bucket list after completing mine and we have quite a few similar things! I’d definitely recommend sleeping under the stars, one of the most beautiful things you can do, even from your back garden!

    Happy new year and all the best for 2015 🙂 x


    1. Thank you! My goal is to go somewhere new every week or two! I figure that I need to explore Auckland somehow…might as well do it by visiting cafes in every area 😉 I am a part of the group on Facebook! My friends and I plan on joining a brunch sometime this year!
