My family spent the day out at Otahuhu. Well we were mainly there for Yumcha. The hygiene rating, which used to be E, is thankfully D. We wouldn't go there but since it is probably one of the cheapest places around, why not! We were there for lunch, at a time when it was full of mainly older Asians.
We checked out Manakau Shopping Centre afterwards, mainly to see what their library looks like. We've got a bit of a problem - in week 5 of term 2 I've got to sit an NCEA Music solo and group performance, and I want to do both on accordion. The only problem is that I have no more duet music for the accordion! So we spent most of the day at Manukau library looking for music (till we realised it wasn't even bigger than our own Henderson library). The Auckland Library and Auckland University Library were massive though! We spent 2 hours in a traffic jam but managed to make it to the public library an hour before it was about to close. That library has HEAPS of sheet music for all sorts of musical instruments and groups, so if you're ever in need of any, check out the Auckland Central Public Library! Once again we were in a rush to photocopy an accordion book before the library
closed. The librarian at the nearby desk stared at Aonghas as he went through the book! Bad news is...we didn't make it. We did manage to photocopy the good songs though.
We next checked out the Auckland University library. That is definitely a cool library! It has lifts, drinking fountains and computers! I can't wait till I go to uni! We realised all the music was kept in the music library down the street somewhere and it had already closed (it was about 9pm by now!), so my parents checked out the Asian languages section. My dad now wants to hang round this section before he starts work more often now!
So yeah finally we went out! For most of this week my brothers and I have been practising the accordion for this performance at a resthome across the street from our house we have this morning (Friday).
