Pop, lock and drop it Saturday, 11pm I usu­ally head to a gig put on by Friendly Po­ten­tial or Auck­land Techno Col­lec­tive at one of my favourite bars on Karanga­hape Road. I love the peo­ple you meet and danc­ing is a great way for me to let off steam after a long work week.

BYO brunch Sun­day, 11.30am Sun­day morn­ing is al­ways a lazy one spent with my part­ner loung­ing in bed un­til we can’t ig­nore our rum­bling stom­achs any­more. We walk to Par­nell Farmers Market to get some pro­duce and cre­ate a de­li­cious brunch at home. 545 Par­nell Rd, Par­nell

Fam­ily time Sun­day, 2pm I love head­ing out of the city and vis­it­ing my fam­ily on the Hi­bis­cus Coast. I grew up there and both of my brothers have set­tled there with their fam­i­lies, so we or­gan­ise ev­ery­one to meet for a potluck din­ner. It amazes me how much my three neph­ews change and grow each time I see them. I love these lit­tle hu­mans.

Swim­ming and pas­tries Mon­day, 10am I love going to the beach on Mon­days – it’s al­ways quiet as ev­ery­one who works 9-5 is back at it, so it’s al­most like I own the place. A per­sonal favourite is Karaka Bay. If it’s not beach weather, I’ll be in my kitchen bak­ing; it’s my full-time hobby. Dirty dumplings Mon­day, 7pm Mon­day evening usu­ally sees me din­ing with friends, whether I’m host­ing, potluck or meet­ing friends at a cheap and cheer­ful. Bar­illa and New Flavour are al­ways win­ners. 571 Do­min­ion Rd; 537 Do­min­ion Rd, Bal­moral

A spot of gar­den­ing Tues­day, 9am My favourite way to start the work week: an early morn­ing for­age at Kel­marna Gardens, a lit­tle or­ganic com­mu­nity gar­den. 12 Hukanui Cres, Pon­sonby
