Things that I’ve missed when I was in New Zealand

This post was created because, just now a colleague of mine reminds me, on NZ term that is not using here in my country. So here I shared with you guys, things or terms or words or product etc.; that I missed a lot when I was in New Zealand 😦 and (how I wish I am still there) can’t find it in my country.

“Smoko” (also “smoke-o” or “smoke-oh”) is a term used in Australian English, New Zealand English and Falkland Islands English for a short, often informal, cigarette break taken during work or military duty, although the term can also be used to describe any short break such as a rest or a coffee/tea break. (

** So if you guys have been working in New Zealand (not sure the same word using in Australia), then you absolutely familiar with this word. Usually the smoko time is about 15minutes.
