WW: Hunting for the Vintage Collection at Napier, New Zealand

I have a soft spot for vintage items. Be it clothes, accessories, furniture, dinnerwares and tea sets, stamps, posters and so many more.

I was lucky that when I visited Napier, they have many antique shops scattered around the area and they have incredible collections! Napier is indeed heaven for those loving these antique collections.

I went crazy as I saw all those cute cups, saucers, stamps, bank notes, silver wares, and books. Not to mention costumes, posters, furnitures, toys, and more. 

Here are some of the photos I took while shopping at the Antique shop in Napier. 

I really love the trio, the bone China set of tea cups mostly made in England. Many of them are Royal Alberd and Queen's Collection. I am instantly in love with them and brought home 8 sets LOL.

We also have more here.

Tell me which one you love to have or might buy if you have the chance to come here. Next time, I will write about my new found love of the this cute tea set that I started collecting.

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

Again, Ramadhan Kareem to my Moslem sisters and brothers who observe and celebrate this solemn month. As always, Ramadhan is indeed a special time for us to once again redeem ourselves and never get tired to improve ourselves in so many ways. 

This will be our first Ramadhan in the land of Kiwis. After spending 3 Ramadhan in Jakarta and many more in New York Cities as well as other parts of the world, it's time to sit down here in this beautiful Aotearoa or the Land of the Long Clouds. Here, the red traffic light system is still on. Although many have open the doors,- like cafes, restaurants, stadium, and many public events will soon be resumed. That icludes the mosques as well. Nevertheless, as we try to stay cautious, we are conducting our taraweh prayer at home. We haven't tried to joined the one in the local mosques in Kilbirnie or Newton. Hopefully soon we will join one of them, most likely in weekends or when the kids are not having their classes in the morning.

Btw, many of my friends will enjoy and celebrate Easter as well this week. Here in this linky party, you will definitely find so many wonderful recipes, decoration ideas and many more. So, welcome to Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends.

WW: The Endless Charm of Napier, the Art Deco Capital of New Zealand

Napier, the Art Deco Capital of New Zealand

Come join me and enjoy the endless charm of Napier, the Art Deco Capital of New Zealand, or probably even the world!

I was lucky enough to go back to Napier area in Hawke's Bay for the second time this year. History said after the earthquake in 1931, the City of Napier got the chance to rebuild their city anew. The art deco theme is their choice and seems like it's the best decision taken. Look at this vibrant city now!

We had series of meetings and events in Napier and we spent 3 days, 2 nights in the area. We drove from Wellington to Napier, taking around 5-hour drive with some short breaks in between.      

We stay at the Nautilus hotel this time, just beside Restaurant Indonesia, our favorite restaurant in Napier. I have shared about our dinner here before.  

READ: Restaurant Indonesia, Napier, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

We met the Mayor and some of the councillors of the city of Napier. We also met with Indonesian migrant workers here in the aria and KAMIBAY, the Indonesian association for Hawke's Bay region. 

As the meetings are well scheduled, I had the time to actually stroll around the area for some times and here are some photos I took. I mainly strolled in the area in front of the Nautilus Hotel or the Marine Parade as well as the city center.  Come and join me..

So, what do you think? Such a lovely city, right? For sure, Napier has a lot to offer and I will definitely share more stories about my trip here, including the one to the Vintage and Antique stores. Will be right back!

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the link party.

Having Fun at Scorch - O - Rama Restaurant in Wellington, New Zealand

Wellington is indeed a beautiful city packed with cool, lovely restaurants dotting around this capital of New Zealand. One of my favorite spots is the Bay area, where we have long lines of shores and beaches. Here, we have the  famous Oriental Bay, Scorching Bay, Karaka Bay and more.

In Scorching Bay, the first beach area I have visited with the whole family during the new year (READ : One Fine Day at Scorching Bay Beach Wellington New Zealand) , we have one lovely restaurant that has become almost everyone's favorite. The restaurant/cafe/milkbar  is called Scorch - O - Rama.

If you like super heroes, colorful comic pages and figurines, Scorch - O - Rama Restaurant is here for you. I have to say that this is one of the  quirky and cutey restaurant in in town. Located at the famous  Scorching Bay area, you won't miss this place as it is super eye catchy and literally is located by the beach. In the front, you will see lovely decoration coming from sea shells with big name board and nautical theme decoration. 

As you step inside, you will enjoy the super hero, dreamy world as you will see super heroes everywhere. From the wall, the table, the bar, the chair, the decoration, the menu and more. Check out some of the photos I took while enjoying my lunch here and tell me what you think. 

Which one is your favorite?

As for the menu, they also have so many choices, coming with cute and intriguing names, plus an array of the healthy one as well. As you can see here, the drinks come with many interesting names especially from the milk bar and the super hero shakes, like the Wolverine, Hit Girl, and Captain America. 

these are the standard ones...

Check out this menu...

Although they are originally coming with spirits or alcohol, you can obviously order one without! And that's exactly what I did! I tried the Hit Girl with that lovely ice cream, chocolate and boysenberries.

My Hit Girl yaaay...

For the food, we really had to take a long time to decide what to order as the choices look all so well and again the names are so distracting LOL. I got thorn between Scorch - O - Rama Ding Dong, Jaws Benny, and Han Solo LOL. Again, we can ask for the customized one here, like for me, I take out all the bacon and pork sausages from my menu since I don't eat them. I ended up ordering the ceasar salad, spinach, creamy mushroom, and the salmon. Delicious indeed!

After finishing our meals, we simply headed out and took more pictures of the bay and the beach! I have to say the ocean is super inviting but too bad we have to headed back to the office obviously.

The bay is so tempting... nice dip in beautiful day indeed

super inviting...

So, what do you think?
Super cute place, right? No wonder this place is packed in weekends and whenever Wellington has a beautiful day!
