airport hospitality ambassadors,

Yesterday, China's Premier Li Ke Qiang visited to Auckland. I was teaching volunteering to my students. I told them it was be excellent if they can volunteer in our airport.

When I am retired, I shall like to be a "bluecoat" in our Auckland International Airport.

Our airport hospitality ambassadors, otherwise known as 'bluecoats' for their distinctive coloured jackets, are on hand to offer passengers help when at the airport. They can help you find your way and direct you to what you need.
You can find the airport information helpdesks at a number of locations:

International terminal: in the public areas in check-in, departures and arrivals areas. In the passenger only area, the helpdesks can be found on the second floor and in the customs hall
Domestic terminal: in the main arrivals area, near baggage claim carousels 1 and 2.

Our volunteer programme began in 1995 and we’ve never looked back! If you are interested in becoming one of our airport ambassadors please contact our vhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifolunteer services manager Bella Onekawa on bella.onekawa@aucklandairport.co.nz.



ABC Wed, letter L

Three weeks ago, we had Tasman Tempest.
The cyclone was loud and fierce.
It roared like a lion.
There was too much rain.

It caused water to churn up the silt.
We had to limit our usage by 20 litres.
It means limiting washing our laundry.
Can't wait to see the last of this limitation.

Hot on the heels of Tasman Tempest,
We have the tail end of Cyclone Debbie.
2 months of rain fell in two day.

Starship Foundation

A beautiful Sarah came to fundraise for our national Hospital. I told her I will do a blog for her, and she didn't want her beautiful face photographed.


The Starship Foundation is a social-profit organisation that raises funds so Starship Children's Health can better care for its young patients.
The Starship Foundation's vision is to create meaningful and magical opportunities that enrich the health of every young New Zealander.

ABC Letter J for jungle

Orang Utans in the jungle.

 The guide tells us what not to do.

 A yellow sign to advice  people what no to do. My brother Dr Henry Chan,  takes his son Jonathan, to appreciate nature at a young age. 6 years ago, Jonathan took me to the same place.

My youngest brother Dr. Henry Chan Chok Khuang and his lovely wife Elley Lina. I am very proud of Henry as he works for humanity and we share a lot of ideals.He is always traveling and attending conference on the environment. We tease him to be the protector of the orang-utans in the jungle.

reduce usage of water.

 We have been having too much rain, and our council urges the citizens to reduce the water usage.

I am married to a water engineer and professor. He explained when there is too much rain, the rain brings down a lot of silt, and the water treatment plants can't cope.

ABC Letter I for Letter I, I am woman.


I was in Canada, at the university of Windsor when I was exposed to women's right. Helen Reddy's song I am woman became our anthem. We denounced the beauty contests.

ABC Letter I for International Women's day.

International Women's Day (IWD) is March 8 and the 2017 campaign theme is Be Bold For Change.

Image may contain: 7 people, people smiling, people standing and indoor 
I celebrate with the women who come to my English Class.

I am very proud of Kate Sheppard. Her image appears on our ten dollar note. She is mainly responsible for New Zealand to be the first country to give women the vote in modern times.

Katherine Wilson Sheppard (10 March 1847 – 13 July 1934) was the most prominent member of New Zealand's women's suffrage movement, and is the country's most famous suffragette. Because New Zealand was the first country to introduce universal suffrage, Sheppard's work had a considerable impact on women's suffrage movements in other countries. During one of the protest movement, she led a whole group of ladies to lie down on the road and the police couldn't do anything.
