We have nothing in mind that we wanted to buy and before we left we walked into the new supermarket to see if there is anything worth buying. Wow the first thing caught my eyes: $1/Kg kumara, so we picked two pieces. We thought of a menu for dinner, so went to the delicatessen and bought several pieces of Continental Frankfurters and streaky bacon. We left very happy because we’d bought some very cheap kumara.
My husband baked the kumara, grilled the Frankfurters and bacon. Instead of as highly expected of a good, tasty meal, we found the kumara were not like kumara; the Frankfurters were not like Continental Frankfurters and the streaky bacon were not crispy no matter how long we grilled them for. The answer: we bought cheap food at an unreasonable price and still thought we got a good deal.
After living here in Auckland for more than twenty years, love this place mainly because of the honesty shown by the people here and now for the first time have encountered sly, cunning business tricks – Auckland is being polluted!
