Kiwi Speak

Hello Mate,

New Zealanders, better known as Kiwis, speak English, but not the way you speak it in India.
Welcome to 2003

Wish you all
A very happy and prosperous
New Year.
-Diana Tijoriwala

New Zealanders, better known as Kiwis, speak English, but not the way you speak it in India.
In New Zealand, if you are invited for a meal and your host tells you to bring a plate, you are expected to take a plate of eats along with you. The building in Wellington where politicians work is known as a beehive. You are a crook when you are not feeling well and when you are exhausted you’re knackered.
Mate is the common way in which Kiwis address people in the country. If a Kiwi wishes to say that a job has been done or will be done immediately, he’d say as good as gold. Petrol is gas and highways are motorways here.
A Kiwi’s expression of approval is neat, and sweet as for something absolutely great.
An ankle-biter is a toddler. A chilly bin is an insulated container for picnics. A chook is a chicken and a dairy is a cafe. A verandah is called a deck and the toilet a dunny. Casual clothes are called mufti and a university student is called a scarfie. A common form of farewell is see you later.
