Second home - Adjusted - Part 3

July/August/September -

Around 6 months + back, and it sure is better!
Like all my previous transfers, the first few months were crap.
I remember hating my first 3 months back in KK, and had a really hard time for my first 5 months back in NZ. But now, all is well;

The last term has been rather eventful! I had the opportunity to work different jobs, make better friendships, reunite with old mates properly, found a better group of friends at school and so forth!

Below are the updates from the last 3 months. We shall start with food photos!

Surprise Langham lunch:

So I decided to surprise the siblings (Julius and Emmeline) to a Langham lunch buffet to thank them for helping me settle in and all that they have done for me by making them thank-you cards and delivering it to their work places like a ninja for them to receive an invite to the buffet!

Pre-buffet selfie

All I ate:

Doesn't look like much, but I was so so so stuffed!! I ate the most, Ju' ate one plate less than me. Em' ate way less than us. But overall, it was a decent experience. I miss the honey butter naan bread!!
