My five week holiday at home in New Zealand mostly consisted of happily loitering about, not doing much of anything really. Some of this loitering was spent at my Uncle and Aunt’s restaurant Taste of Malaysia in Lower Hutt. It was here that I overheard my Aunt discussing their Thai Chef, Bob’s recent success crab and pipi fishing at Paraparaumu Beach.
My ears instantly pricked up. Delicious super fresh seafood… for free?! ”Can I come next time please?!” I suddenly burst out much to Bob’s astonishment and disbelief that a visitor from London would want to participate in such a manual activity… for fun! ”We’ll all go!” my Aunt said and so it was set.
