« on: April 24, 2007, 12:14:10 am »
...be prepared to be call a "JAFA" by the rest of NZ ;)

Meaning "Just Another F.....g Aucklander" and they mean it tooO0

We find it hard to meantion that we've just moved down from Auckland. We keep getting the same answers, "oh, you from there are you?" ;D

My english friend used to call me a "SAFA JAFA" (South African F...g Aucklander) :2funny:

Hmm... the really nice part for me was when he went to a Korean restaurant! Very glad that there is at least one in Aucks.  I was in Korea a couple of years ago and I cant wait to take DH to a restaurant to taste the food!

Thanks MJ watched it.  No jumping of high towers me thinks, but the water world looks nice.

I thought the jumping off the tower might be an intro into bungy jumping for me as the two things that put me off bungy is the rope in front and when you are jerked back up by the bounce.  Don't know if I fancy leaping off a building though!!!

I really want to do the jump, but not sure if my nerves will allow it - maybe if someone comes with it will be easier - or I'll make my name bollie in front of an audience.  :D

I have done the gorge swing at Oribi a couple of times, but this is WAY higher - I am shaking just thinking about it - lekkerrrr
