On the hunt for decent takeaways – Staveley Fish Supply & Hamburger Bar

There are two phone numbers I remember from my childhood – my parents number and the number for the Staveley Fish Supply & Hamburger Bar … 342 7468.

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Chopsticks – Fendalton, Christchurch

Many years ago we lived in the suburb of Bryndwr and regularly visited Chopsticks a Chinese restaurant specialising in Chinese and Malaysian style food.

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Sai Touch of Spice – Coach Corner

Long story short, a trip to the vet during our usual meal time was a good excuse to get takeaways this week.  We had a loyalty card to redeem a free curry at Sai Touch of Spice at Coach Corner, so that sealed the deal.  Their menu is here. We got Aloo Gobi and Vegetable Khadai. … Continue reading

Christchurch Airport – yes, you can get a bus to the city!

Recently Christchurch Airport has undergone some amazing changes.  Its gone from an old, worn airport to a bright, airy and modern one, within the space of a few years.  One thing I feel they have let the community and vistors alike down on is the very poorly sign posted city bus stops. To find the … Continue reading
