Year of the Rāpeti

This week I had the pleasure of witnessing the Chinese New Year celebrations. The food, the performers, the music, and the amount of people were surreal. I spent the night walking the streets of China Town watching, listening and taking everything in.

He aha te mea nui o te ao?

He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata 

China town on Chinese New Year, something I won’t forget

What is the most important thing? It is people, it is people, it is people

The people I’ve met on this journey have been a wonderful, positive influence.

Work has changed a bit. Our friend and translator Charlie has left the company. This has been a little tough for me as he was essential in helping my brother and me fit in and also settle into the mahi. Although he’s not with the company anymore, we have still been keeping in contact. On Tuesday, we went out for dinner with him, and he showed us some really cool spots around Bangkok, the ones where the locals go.

My relationship with two other work colleagues, Chat and Tee, has become real strong! I’m really grateful for them as they make me laugh every day, teach me Thai words and make work life lots of fun. 

Our boss Jerry has us reaching out to influencers and developers from around the world to help promote The App Galaxy Kids, my coding skills are still very rusty, but they are getting better, I hope…… 

I’ve had some mates from New Zealand pass through Bangkok; it has been really good catching up with them and making the most of the awesome nightlife in Bangkok, which includes lots of night markets, restaurants and bars. Bangkok is truly a 24-hour city.

One of my favourite things about Bangkok is that you meet so many different people from so many different places. During the short time I’ve been here, I’ve met people from every Continent
