Caribe Latin Kitchen, Little High Eatery on High Street

May 25, 2017

Wow, what a wonderful sensory overload the new food court at Little High Eatery is! It’s located at 181 High Street at the back of what was once the site of the McKenzie and Willis Building (and now just its facade remains after being completely rebuilt).

We wandered around checking out all the different food options today (lots of awesome choices on offer), after the usual ‘what do you want to eat chit chat’, we decided on Caribe Latin Kitchen. I just love how colourful the seating and decorations are and the food was delicious too (I had the chicken burrito with a Mexican Coke). And wow, you can have a margarita at lunch if that takes your fancy (now personally, that would have me under my table after lunch!).

It’s just great to see a lively energetic spot – there were so many people there, that quite frankly I was a bit overwhelmed and probably walked around for a bit in a state of confusion (is this really Christchurch?). Once we’d settled into our lunch spot, it was easy to spot the other folks feeling the same way. I can see this is going to be a regular lunch spot for those working in the Innovation Precinct.

Monarch Butterflies in Woodham Park

May 24, 2017

As they do every year, the Monarch Butterflies are now living in large clusters in our local parks. My photo from today is from Woodham Park on Woodham road – where the butterflies cluster in the large Gingko biloba (Maidenhair Tree) that’s not far from the playground.

Here’s a short video I captured as well.
