It’s 8.46am on a Wednesday morning and I’m siting inside one of the new cafes that has popped up on Karangahape Road.
I’m drinking a flat white because they don’t make mocha’s here.
My breakfast is in my bag. I’m balling on a budget.
There are two other people that are on their Mac Books. I make person number three.
The furniture is that kind of Ikea-wooden-exposed-table-top type thing.
The people coming inside are young and trendy looking.
Next door is the new cookie place that sells American style cookies for $3.50 (the Snickers and Nutella are my favourite).
The South Auckland girls that go to Auckland Girls’ Grammar are making tracks to school.
From my seat I can see the rainbow flags above family bar.
I remember my first time clubbing on K Road. Wasted, blurs of faces, lights and music that you feel vibrating in your body. Kebabs are the best at 4am.
The Samoan consulate has moved to Mangere. I don’t see as many Pacific people go into the building anymore.
Recently I heard that Rainbow Youth is moving, I wonder where they will go?
Who will be going next?
I don’t really go to Ponsonby that much.
