• Hi all
    We're a little different this week, being the last week before Christmas.
    Still ending up at the Bristol, but another thing first.

    I always thought the regular dinner time in NZ is around 8pm, but why the pubs time always start so early? that's one thing i don't really understand.

    Many international people placed in NZ homestays complain that dinner is so early (usually 6/6,30) and bed time is early too...like 9 or 10pm. Many people have called Kiwis 'old ladies' because of their early bed times. But Kiwis will tell you it descends from getting up very early to look after the farm.

    Hey Guys, thanks so much for the replies to my tea time and pub time questions, good to hear different voices, it's very interesting, I thought tea time was around 8pm because all the dinners I was invited by kiwis at their home were always 8pm, when I look back it was about 10+ times invited dinner at local's home. They were at Auckland, Nelson and Oarmaru and Raglan. Never been invited to dinner at Welly yet (Potluck doesn't count).
    Maybe, it's just everyone is different and those who invited me for dinner happen to be the ones who have dinner late, great to hear different voices!

    See you guys there.
