Fix com­mon prob­lems

Central Leader - - NEWS -

What do you like best about Hills­bor­ough?

You have a very peace­ful life here. It’s quiet, you have good neigh­bours and a lot of shops nearby. How long have you lived here and where are you from orig­i­nally?

I’m from In­dia and I’ve been in Auck­land since 2001.

I moved from Mt Roskill to Hills­bor­ough in 2005. What do you like least and how can we change it?

The traf­fic and pub­lic trans­port.

The buses are OK but trains need to be more con­nected to dif­fer­ent sub­urbs so that people can use pub­lic trans­port in­stead of driv­ing ev­ery time. Where’s the best place to buy din­ner in the area?

If you drive ten min­utes you can get to Mt Roskill which is a restau­rant hub.

I rec­om­mend In­dia Gate on Manukau Rd. They have a very good setup and the food is de­li­cious and au­then­tic. And who does the best fish’n chips?

I don’t know around here but I like Fish Pot Cafe in Mis­sion Bay.

It’s a very fa­mous place and the fish’n chips are lovely and fresh. Who is the Kiwi you ad­mire most – why?

Ed­mund Hil­lary, he’s a leg­end, and Richard Hadlee. He’s one of the crick­eters who I used to ad­mire from here.

I was also a crick­eter and he was very skil­ful and bowled so well. If I was Auck­land’s mayor I’d . . .

try to fix all the prob­lems of the com­mon man. Hous­ing and trans­port es­pe­cially.

To live you need shel­ter and you also need good pub­lic trans­port be­cause not ev­ery­one can af­ford a car. When I’ve got a free few hours I like to . . .

ex­er­cise and do gar­den­ing.

I go for a walk or a jog a cou­ple of times a week.

I also coach cricket to young chil­dren on Sun­days. The spot in Hills­bor­ough I’d rec­om­mend to

some tourists is . . .

Monte Ce­cilia Park. It’s very nice area. It has Pah Home­stead on it, a beau­ti­ful old build­ing and it’s sur­rounded by gar­dens.
