How to shake a tree! This is how they pick olives at Simunovich Olive Estate. Genius. They have more than 30,000 olive trees so hand picking is not an option. But only the olives that are ready fall. Usually trees get a couple of shakes per harvest.
Art on a plate and it tastes wonderful too. This is the work of Bracu’s talented head chef Mikey Newlands.
Still awestruck hours after tasting this entree and other wonders on the menu earlier today. Newlands also presented freshly churned butter, his own freshly baked bread, and cold pressed Frantoio olive oil. The olives are grown and pressed just metres away from the restaurant on Simunovich Olive Estate where Bracu is located.
City Works Depot just got even cooler with Zoe & Morgan’s store opening tonight in Auckland. Now you can shop here for jewellery as well as have your hair done at Dry & Tea, eat Al Brown bagels or Food Truck eats, drink coffee from Three Beans and drink beer at Brothers Brewery.
Zoe & Morgan also recently opened its first London store too.

INFLATABLE FLORAL CHANDELIER
For those of you who haven’t seen Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa’s inflatable Flower Chandelier at the Auckland Art Gallery, here is a video of it in action.
Yes, it moves!
For the past year it has hung from the Gallery’s atrium delighting and enthralling visitors including me.
Choi is a pioneer of Korean Neo-Pop art.
