Auck­land’s beau­ti­ful

Central Leader - - NEWS -

What do you like best about Ep­som?

Liv­ing at the city end of Ep­som. We are close to great walks around Mt Eden, One Tree Hill and Corn­wall Park. There are trees and na­tive birds like tui and kereru.

How long have you lived here and where are you orig­i­nally from?

I’ve lived here for four years. I’m orig­i­nally from Tonga. I came to New Zealand as a 13-year-old to go to school.

What do you like least and how can we fix it?

Traf­fic con­ges­tion is the only neg­a­tive. De­cen­tral­i­sa­tion of the CBD area would elim­i­nate the need for thou­sands to travel in and out of the city via Ep­som.

Where is the do best you think

place to buy din­ner in Ep­som?

We have a wide range of pre­ferred foods in our house so din­ing de­pends on the most num­ber of votes rather than the best place.

And who do you think does the best fish ’n’ chips?

We nor­mally go to the Ep­som Fish & Chips on Manukau Rd.

Who is the Kiwi you ad­mire most – and why?

I can’t say that I ad­mire one per­son in par­tic­u­lar. I ad­mire the fact that we, New Zealand, stood up to coun­tries like the United States with our an­ti­nu­clear weapon stance. The num­ber eight wire men­tal­ity plus our over­all can-do at­ti­tude shared Ki­wis.

If I was Auck­land’s mayor I’d . . .

Bring ac­count­abil­ity back to the coun­cil and all it’s highly paid em­ploy­ees.

When I’ve got a free few hours I like to . . . Spend time with fam­ily. I lis­ten and play Ton­gan mu­sic on the gui­tar, ex­er­cise and try to com­plete my Master of En­gi­neer­ing the­sis so I can move on to a PhD. The spot in Auck­land I’d rec­om­mend to tourists is . . .

Auck­land beaches – Piha, Muri­wai, Mis­sion Bay, Ko­hi­marama and St Heliers. is a sig­nif­i­cant trait amongst suc­cess­ful
