Just the usual talk like "how my life here", "how my work", "how the new car", "am i in good helth now"... and so on.
Now my mum is working in a china man shop in Pahiatua*, i'm happy to hear that her job is consider quite easy where she just responsible to fried the fish and chip then sell it to the customer where all the order are take away. The job start at about 4pm to start prepare everything, then open the door to do business on 4.30pm. And lastly finish the job at about 6-8pm liao.
Now the wether over there is consider abit cold (10c ++) and getting hot and hot because their chrismast is in the summer time. The time diff with malaysia is exactly +5 hours.
Besides that, mum also told me that the medical facilities over there is very good and they provide the free medical check up for all the people who age at 45 and above no matter you are their citizen or not.
In addition, the people working in NZ goverment also very kind, not like what in malaysia. They are really efficiene, when my mum like to change the address and the check out location due to the changing of job. The staff in the hospital do it immediately and settle it out within few minutes after signing all the documentation. (this is what the malaysia government servant need to learn)
Mum, really miss you very much, and please take care your self very careful.
