Love My City – April Round Up


I’m pleased to be the host of Link Up event Love My City, which aims to connect bloggers and share spots and events in our cities. Whether it’s a review of an event or neat little place that you just discovered, Love My City is a great way to share your post.

The event is open to bloggers world-wide and you can find out more or submit a post over here.

I’ve lived in three vastly different cities in my life. Hong Kong (pop. over 7,000,000), Rotorua (pop. over 50,000) and Auckland (pop. over 1,000,000). I could tell you a thing or two about each of them.

Coincidentally there were three entries to Love My City this month. All the bloggers currently live in Auckland and these are our city secrets…

First I will start with Jule’s from The Kiwi Diaries who started this link up.


When she and Le Boyfriend visited London, UK recently, they dined at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Union Jacks where they feasted on British classic of Fish and chips served with mushy peas and tartare sauce. Check out her full review including lovely decor shots here.


Next up, Chloe and Jess at Freckle NZ discovered Al’s Deli on Queen Street in Auckland city. One of my personal favourites too. Read their review over here.


Finally, my entry this month was an introduction to $5 Wednesdays at Academy Cinemas in Auckland city. I paired a bunch of movies with local cheap eats. You can read about it here.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. Yay! Thank you Genie for being the host of this month Love My City, We had some lovely entries, which ended on me really craving burgers and finding out about this cheep as movie ticket…how didn’t I know this?!


    • Yes, I’m surprised it is not better advertised, but I guess it’s just a small theatre so it fills up quickly. A little bit of word of mouth and they are already at capacity. They only have 2 theatres. I think it’s a 250 seater and a 16 seater. Yes! 16 seats! Very intimate. I imagine tickets sell out very quickly. Thanks for having this link up. I’m thinking about what *secrets* I know about in Auckland again already.

  2. Yay thanks for including us in your roundup Genie!
    We are already looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this month 🙂
