While I was contracting I was placed on the incorrect tax code this was overpaying tax. I noticed this an contacted HMRC service on 11 feb and corrected it. HMRC refunded my excess tax with my February pay. Quick n easy. Amazing service.

Still waiting for 2 years for Sars to refund me

Sitting in Norway in one of the towns having coffee, can see the mall entrance from where we are sitting. It's late November so quite chilly outside. Women walk with their strollers and babies in - the babies are all dressed warmly. So the women goes into the mall and leave the strollers with babies in outside the door. No one looking after them. As I'm getting nervous about this situation another one comes, parks the baby stroller next to those goes inside.
When I mention it our Norwegian friend tells us that that's quite normal, too warm inside the malls, so the moms leave them outside - they socialize with the other babies.
WTF!?

In Norway, Walking in the park... you see bags and jackets hanging in trees in the middle of a forest, "Oh no when people get tired of carrying their bags or warm they just hang them up and fetch them when they come back."
WTF!?

Also in Norway 650gram Tenderized Prime Steak. Yum
R700
WTF!

Hmmm, so land in NZ and go:

1) open a bank account in 10 minutes flat. And get service with a smile...
2) do transfer of ownership to get car on my name- 10 minutes and $9 later, its mine...with a smile
3) Take out insurance online in 5 minutes at $13 per month
4) get cellphone package registered in 10 minutes and with a smile

Not a single queue or minute waiting. Planned a whole day, expecting African-like traffic dept, so didnt know what to do the rest of the day...

Sent my mate some bucks and he bought the car for me. Parked it at his house until I got here on Monday and went and registered it in my name on yesterday. I feel like a real grandpa in the Camry  :biggrin:

I landed in Christchurch and will leave for Blenheim, where I will be based, tomorrow morning (Thursday).

Some stuff about China specifically Chongqing:

The social media stuff seems to be blocked and regulated.  Can't access WhatsApp, messenger, facebook, etc.  Only works here and there.
Google is blocked so you to use other search engines.
Can't log onto Bing UK it directs back to Bing china. Many sites blocked. Can't download VPN
OSM and Where maps don't have options to download offline maps for China.

Many here use WeChat which combines a number of apps in one.  Some don't carry wallets and use the phone for everything. WeChat has a wallet option.

The Wilddog site is not blocked.  ;D
