Sazhiningi narkotiku prekeiviai ir mokesciu inspekcija

Inland Revenue Department (IRD) tai NZ valdiska istaiga atsakinga uz mokescius (greiciausiai atitinka LT mokesciu inspekcija).

IRD visai neidomu is kur gavai pinigu susimoketi mokesciams. Prekyba narkotikais? Sveikinam, tik mokekit.

IRD special audit manager Christine Stella: Some (drug) dealers also paid up for moral reasons – to feel better about contributing something positive to society.

Kai kurie mokesciu moketojai mokedami mokescius taip ir nurode, kad pinigai igyti prekiaujant narkotikais. Taciau IRD tiki, kad mokesciu moketoju informacija privalo buti privati ir neatskleidzia jokios info policijai, netgi jeigu policija to prasho.

A strange Japanese device

Need to shred a business card? No problem. Just go to "$3 Japan" shop on the Queen street in central Auckland and get a dedicated business card shredder.
I personally don't shred too many business cards, but my 4 year old boy adores it. He loves things that turn and things that cut. And this one combines the two.
I effectively purchased hours of entertainment for him and silence for us for just $3. A highly recommended toy :).


Winter? For a Weekend!

Ziema? Savaitgaliui! :)



Auckalnd'e temperatura retai nusileidzia zemiau +10 laipsniu. Ir GERAI :)
Todel sniego tenka vaziuoti 400km. i Pietus ir 2000+m. i virsu i Whakapapa.

Auklende visada kazkas zydi. Nesvarbu ziema ar vasara.

Siandien Liepos trecia. Pati ziema. Ir jeigu tiketi meteorologais, pati salciausia ziema nuo 1972.

Pats arbatmedziu(Leptospermum scoparium) zydejimas. Tai ne tie is kuriu arbata gamina, o kiti. Kyviai juos dar vadina Manuka. O manuka honey ir arbatmedziu aliejus turi ypatingu gydomuju savybiu. Posted by Picasa
 
Auklendas turi nuostabu zoologijos soda. Visai nepanasu i Kauno :). Cia zvereliai jauciasi beveik kaip gamtoj :) Posted by Picasa

Waiheke


NZ yra sala. Tiksliau dvi salos. Pietine ir Siaurine. Tiksliau...

Waiheke yra nedidele sala saliai Oklendo. Dabar ten ypac madinga gyventi. Todel, kad anot waihek'ieciu, jie gyvena saloje, o mes Oklende ne.

Police in Auckland


I've been stopped by police yesterday. This was the very first time I was stopped by police in New Zealand and they didn't even check my papers!

They asked my name and address and put some device in front of my mouth. "Looks like a radio", I thought. "A breathalyzer!" I gathered later.

Almost every time I go back home to Europe, I get stopped by the police. And they do check my papers. Once they even searched my car...

Ar ne 90% NZ augmenijos yra unikali. O zolyte kaip ir Lietuvoj - zolyte.












Kyviai (Naujazelandai) - ne tik labai laimingi ir atsipute. Jie taip pat labai saziningi. Todel savitarna gali zengti vienu zingsniu toliau. Pats atejai, pats issirinkai, pats susimokejai.
Pakelese daznai pasitaiko "mini-turgeliu". Tokiu kaip sitas.


The President of Lithuania in New Zealand












In NZ there are only about 100-150 Lithuanians. Being one of them, you can easily meet the Lithuanian president in person when he comes. I imagine this would be a little harder in Lithuania ;-)

NZ tera apie 100 -150 lietuviu. Todel labai lengva susitikti ir nusifotografuoti su prezidentu, kai jis cia atvaziuoja :-)

Pukeko

Pukeko, tai toks paukstukas...
















Ir smalsus paukstukas. Atitinka turbut lietuviska varna, nes megsta pabaigti valgyti tai, ko zmones nebaigia. Arba nespeja pabaigti ;-)










Pasirodo NZ yra pingvinu :). Ir ne tik tokiu pliusiniu prilipdytu ant stiklo, o tikru!
