My Local Like

Cam from St Heliers

Chocola, on Apirana Avenue in Glen Innes in the area by Fruit World and the Dove Hospice Shop. Amazing fresh Mexican food as well as artisan chocolates and I understand you can also have events/learn about cacao/make chocolates too. Wandered in with my son, and left having had a great lunch, an addiction to Mexican drinking chocolate, a supply of healthy fresh juice and huge smiles. Bring the glass bottles back for reuse. Informal seating and personalized friendly service from Jose and Maria (remember Mexican Specialites on Maura Road Ellerslie? This is them!). If you are one of those people where chocolate milk is life-and-death then you owe it to yourself to go! Not sure of hours/phone details.
We've missed you, Chocola!

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
