Originally it was looking like we wouldn't end up going, as Emily one of the women we were going to go with, just remembered she had a meeting till 7pm, but we then decided we'd just go after. It is a NIGHT market after all!
Next thing we knew, the sky opened up, and the thunder and lightning came along! We called the others and they were still going!
I decided to drive, as I thought I'd be able to get some wet weather driving experience. I ended up taking the wrong turn several times, but eventually we got there...even earlier than everyone else!
One of the criticisms of our last Facebook Check-In at the Papakura Night Markets was that the photo did not match the status:
so we decided to go all out this time and actually PIG OUT!
We really wanted to try different food. Winston bought some Japanese balls (well they were ball shaped anyway!), while I went for these sticks that look like Chinese churro's!
Nadine and Leonie bought actual churro's. I think Leonie's addicted to them now since going to the Papakura Night Markets!
My mum also bought some squid.
Meanwhile, Joylynn really wanted candy floss. For $2, she got a great deal! She didn't actually manage to finish it all either!
After all the eating, we finally decided to have a look at the stalls. The girls bought some cellphone decorations, and then we bought some fruit drinks before it was time to leave as we had to get Joylynn home early!
I can proudly say I drove the family home without getting lost this time!
