If you didn't understand the above, don't worry, our purpose is to help you get your head around some of New Zealand's unique turns of phrase.

Also, some Thai women are being verbally and occasionally physically assaulted by New Zealand women.
It was reported recently that two Thai women were assaulted in Nelson, a city on the eastern shore of Tasman Bay in South Island.
Jiab Uthaisong, 32, and Tai Sripan, 30, were verbally abused and then Ms Sripan punched, bruising an eye and damaging the eye socket.
She was treated in a local hospital, and both women spoke about the racial abuse that Thai women are experiencing in the country.
