A good day to be a New Zealander

I usually like to keep this blog pretty frivolous - mainly its full of clothes I like, stuff I've sewn, traveling and hanging out with my friends.

However last Wednesday was a good day to be a New Zealander - an amendment was made to our marriage act to allow same sex couples to marry, the vote being 77- 44 in the favour of the amendment.

Here's the scene in parliament after the amendment was passed - the waita (song) is Pokarekare Ana.


It really has been a good week for equality in New Zealand.

I only wish the conservatives in the US would get over their issue with this. This is great news! Thanks for the Korean food recommendation, I knew you were a fan!

It was beautiful when they sung Pokaarekare Ana. I was so proud of NZ and all the politicians who voted for it.
