Good. 3 Christchurch Airport’s new mural featuring New Zealand native birds. 4 Kiwi Bryce Langston’s YouTube channel Living Big In A Tiny House. Fascinating! 5 Resene I Dare You – a spark of sunshine to break through our winter solstice. NAH 1 The millions of litres of local water being bottled and exported – let’s put more value on our most precious resource. 2 Tepid coffee from a barista – it’s just not the season for it. 3 Swiss balls in offices. Good for the spine, bad for aesthetics. 4 Smug tropical getaways in winter – yes Karen, we see you in Fiji, thanks. 5 Saturday night early closing. Come on Christchurch restaurants, we want…
