Living the invasion with Tze Ming Mok

When I met John Ong at last year's ASPA awards I was super-impressed that his family was tight with the Lims of Lim's Supermarket and Lim Chhour foodcourt. This meant that he was famous. The Lims people, the Lims...

Graham Reid's many things

The hidden costs of living in a leaky building are legion, but today we were dealt a bitter and somewhat personal blow. But first let me backtrack a little and explain how costs can mount beyond the mere bill for repairs (in our case a tidy $60,000 or thereabouts, plus...

Temples and artefacts of exquisite beauty have exercised the interest of adventurers and buccaneers who looted with almost kleptocratic tendency.

On 1 August Minister of Health Andrew Little announced what he described as the start of a plan for the beleaguered workforce in Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system: Government’s 5 year late health workforce announcement.
