I was very impressed with the woman working at Bamboo Resource Centre at Balmoral, Auckland, New Zealand. I was in a hurry to get some sticky tape and this was the only bookshop. The lady said she didn't have any, but offered to tape it for me, but my parcels were not with me. She kindly gave me two lengths of 1 foot each, and stuck them on some bubble wrap.
I didn't get her name,whakawhetai ki a koutou and Ka Pai. This is Thank you and well done in our New Zealand Maori language. I like to commend her to her boss. This post goes round the world.
Sensing I was in a rush, she invited me to come back in future. I told her, I did come before and left them a copy of the first edition of my book, "Diary of a bereaved mother."
