Awwww geee!!



As an ex-pat Kiwi my heart still does a little flip flop whenever I hear a kiwi accent.
Thanks to Raewyn for sending me the link to this cute TV advertisement from New Zealand.

In case the Kiwi/ Aussie accent is hard to understand, here is a translation.

What are you doing this weekend?

I'm putting up a retaining wall.

Doing it yourself ?

Nah! I'm going to get some bloke ( man) in

Oh, come on mate (friend) do it yourself

She's pretty big job

You'll be right

You reckon?

We can knock it over in half a day

Yeah?

Get a couple of mates around

Hey Jonesy!

Huh!

Give us a hand with the job Saturday?

Nah, your dreamin!

Aussies!

Yeah!

No surprise there.
