wai kika moo kau

I woke up at 3!!!! am and could not go back to sleep until 8. So those were some nice 3 hours I slept and some horrible 5 that I was layng in bed trying to find youtube content that didn’t annoy me. At 6 I was so hungry because my dinner yesterday was a beer so I made scrambled eggs with ketchup becuase those 3 eggs were literally the only edible thing I own. I somehow went back to sleep from 8 til half 9. When I woke up the sun was shining which put me in the best mood because I was expecting it to rain. The weather forecast is so weird?! Anyway I got ready and put on sunscreen (see I do learn), packed my bag:

  • wallet
  • sunscreen
  • book
  • headphones
  • waterbottle
  • phone
  • keys
  • sweater
  • cough drops
  • tissues

and left the house heading towards the North Laines, of course. I walked around aimlessly just looking for a cute cafe with seating outside and in the sun. I found one called *looks up name* WAI KIKA MOO KAU. I ordered a muesli and an ice latte and it was delicious. Even tho I had coated my arm wth spf 50 twice it was still red so I changed tables still in the sun but I don’t even know… nvm. I sat there for 3 hours I think just reading my book and enjoying the sun, not checking my phone and listened to people laughing and being happy which made me verry happy as well.

Then I got a text from the belgian guy asking if Berlin was worth to visit and I was like yeah it’s my favorite german city you should go (thinking he’s gonna go with his gf or something). So I gave tips on where to go and stuff. And then he goes: so you wanna come. And I’m quite the forgiving person and because I made some awesome friends here and am genuinely so so happy I think I might actually go.

I’m also sooo exited for the following week when I see my spanish people again. There will be a lot of alcohol, football and cheap beer I can tell you that.

I walked around the North Laines some more went into some little shops I hadn’t seen before (I love Brighton). In one of the vintage stores I bought 2 rings which are so cute and exactly what I wanted because they are really dainty and fit perfectly. And they aren’t h&m or something so I’m ”the only one” wearing them!

When I walked past the flour pot bakery I saw that there was seating avaiable outside which is quite rare so I got a ginormous piece of carrot cake (first ever carrot cake I tried and I loved it!) and had another latte, hot this time cause it got quite chilly actually, was still wearing a tshirt tho. I also made the observation that this kind of weather lures the cool people out of their houses. Beautiful hipster boys errrywhere. And so many tattoos (I love Brighton). After I went down to the beach to read some more. So I sat leaned against my favorite yellow container. I had to put on my sweater tho because the sun was disappearing. At around 3 I went home because it was cold and grey and I was really tired. So now I’m in bed watching some weird chick flick where everyone is pregnant and I’m on the verge of falling asleep.

I couldn’t get over that cafe’s name so I looked it up and the first thing I see is ”why kick a moo-cow” and I was like ooooooooh

this is what wiki says

Waikikamukau

Waikikamukow (/wkɪkɑːmk/, as if saying “Why kick a moo-cow”) is a generic name for a small rural town or locality in New Zealand. New Zealanders use the name as a placeholder name for “any town” or to denote a non-specific but remote rural town. It has a similar connotation to the New Zealand slang Wop Wops[1] and the Australian term Woop Woop and other appellations such as the “Boondocks” or “Timbuktu“.[2] The name is a joking reference[clarification needed] to the frequency of New Zealand place names starting with “Wai” (Māori for water, and used in the names of many rivers and nearby towns).
