Waiting for a Tsunami...

The time is 8:50 am and the Tsunami is supposed to come at 11:20. It's kind of crazy around here there is a huge line getting petrol, planes flying all over the place sounding alarms and fire engines telling people to evacuate. Waikiki and Turtle bay have been evacuated, but we are on the point about 40 ft high so we should be fine. Update soon.

*V Day*

We had such a great Valentines day weekend. I had to work Sunday night on account of the millions of people who wanted to eat at Ola for their special day, so... we decided to celebrate on saturday night. Josh took me to Maharani, the Indian restaurant that i have been pestering him about for months. I was so excited I kept raving about it to everyone for the whole week before hand. When we got there we had to wait for 2 hours to be seated. Josh told me he was on the brink of leaving... they even seated us and then told us they'd made a mistake so we had to wait another half hour.

Maharani was tiny, no more then 10 tables (hence the wait)and so lovely. It reminded me how much I love India and how much I want to go back.

But the food was so worth it! Delicious. Josh got Lamb Vindaloo and I go Chicken Saag (spinach). We got Paratha (my favourite Indian Bread) and Naan as well as Samosas. We didn't even get 1/4 way through our meal before we were totally defeated!

Valentines Day was so lovely, We had such a great time. Food was great. Atmosphere was great. The best part was spending some time with my boy. Maybe the best Valentines day ever.

PS On another note can i just say how excited I am to get back to NZ and back to some of the wonderful food and friends and family i have been missing.
