It's fair to say I'm feeling pretty smug this week, after completing the latest challenge from YouTube yoga-star Adriene Mishler. It's not just the fact I successfully stuck to the 31-day programme (made up of daily 30-minute practices) but also that I didn't pay for it. You see, Yoga with Adriene is a free YT channel (with more than 2 million subscribers) and is better than any expensive class or subscription service. Having converted more than a dozen friends in recent weeks, the verdict is unanimous: YWA is where it's at. Namaste y'all.
It's long been one of Auckland's greatest anomalies: That the picturesque Viaduct Basin is home to so many terrible bars and restaurants; tourist traps no self-respecting local would be caught dead in. Fortunately, Dr Rudi's Rooftop Brewing Co. is doing its part to rewrite history - serving up good food, fresh drinks and sparkling waterfront views. That alone makes it worthy of a Sunday session - but add to that two bowling lanes, where punters can play for free and you have yourself a winner. #sundayfunday
were more than a little bit bummed last year when their favourite weatherman Sam Wallace called it quits - but now you can once again get your daily fix of Sam's shenanigans on The Hits. He's teaming up with Toni Street and Sarah Gandy for their new breakfast show,
, which kicks off from Monday. After jetting to Melbourne for their first interview - with Ed Sheeran, no less - the trio are promising plenty of LOLs to start your day.
Having grown up in Hong Kong, I have a particular affinity for the Lantern Festival and the chaos that surrounds it. Bursting with people, smells, sights and sounds, the festival is a bona fide riot of colour and culture. Kicking off today in The Domain, the free event runs until Sunday. Parents - leave your baby buggies at home. This is strictly standing room only.
