Close to ev­ery­thing

What do you like best about Mt Al­bert?

There are so many cats, my flat and flat­mates are awe­some, there are some trees to look at and it is so close to ev­ery­thing. How long have you lived here and where are you orig­i­nally from?

I have be­ing liv­ing in Mt Al­bert for about three months, but six years in Auck­land. I am orig­i­nally from Whangarei but spent five years of my child­hood in Brunei. What do you like least and how can we fix it?

There are too many food op­tions. I get in­cred­i­bly con­fused and can’t de­cide what I want and my stom­ach is eat­ing holes in it­self by the time I fi­nally place an order. And the sad things is . . . I don’t know that I want you to fix it. Where’s the best place to buy din­ner in the area?

I only know it as the ‘Doo­dle House’ (thank you spell­ing mis­takes). It’s de­li­cious and cheap. And who does the best fish and chips?

I’m a veg­e­tar­ian so can’t vouch for fish, but there’s a lit­tle Turk­ish food car­a­van thingy, by the train sta­tion, that does epic chips with BBQ Sauce and may­on­naise. It’s out of con­trol. Who is the Kiwi you ad­mire the most and why?

This changes all the time. There are a lot of in­cred­i­ble peo­ple in my in­dus­try that I ad­mire – writ­ers and ac­tors alike. Then my girl­friend and my fam­ily, ob­vi­ously. At the mo­ment though, I am re­ally in­spired by Nancy Wake. If I was Auck­land’s mayor I would . . .

Do more for the arts. New re­hearsal spa­ces, fund­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, work­shops etc. The spot I would rec­om­mend to tourists is . . .

The Base­ment Theatre! Some­thing new and ex­cit­ing is al­ways hap­pen­ing there and it’s a great place to uncensored Kiwi voices. When I have a few hours spare I like to . . .

Write plays!
