I come from a place called NEW ZEALAND, where people pull over for an ambulance or a cattle crossing. We dont have "fire flies" we have GLOW WORMS. "yeh" is never said with a high pitched voice.. BRO is definitely a word. Shoes aren't necessary if we go outside. We get dirty and aint scared of it. "shopping carts" are TROLLEYS, and "washing cloths" are FLANNELS, oh, & if you disrespect MY FAMILY, you're gonna get hit with whatevers close by!! We are not a big Country, but we are proud of who we are !!!! RE-POST THIS IF YOUR PROUD TO BE FROM NEW ZEALAND ♥
All Black Dan Carter marked his final days of singledom on Saturday night with a big evening of partying during his stag do in Queenstown - less than a month before his wedding to long-time girlfriend Honor Dillon.
The high-profile couple are due to tie the knot early next month at a secret location.
Carter and a group of friends marked his last days as a single man before the upcoming nuptials by spending the evening bar-hopping - and were still out at 8am, said one local.
The group are understood to have spent a large part of the night at Barmuda bar before they were sighted at Bar Up and later headed to Mini Bar where Carter is reported to have tested out his DJ-ing in front of a large crowd.
They then moved on to Bardeaux bar in the early hours of yesterday morning, where manager Jeremy Stevens served the All Black a vodka, lime and water.
Carter and about half a dozen friends arrived around 1am in good spirits, he said.
"They came in for a few drinks at the end of the night. Dan Carter was there - it was nice to see them."
Mr Stevens said it was a very busy night, with a number of staff fromThe Hobbit, filming in the area, also in the bar.
The manager of Barmuda refused to confirm further details of Carter’s night on the town but said “Queenstown is a wonderful city and I’m sure he had a good time last night”.
The resort town has significance for the couple, who got engaged there in October last year.
Carter lured Dillon to Queenstown where he took her on a helicopter ride and asked her to marry him. He had also organised for both sets of parents to fly to the city so they could all go out for a meal together.
Dillon, 29, a former Black Sticks’ striker, underwear model and Carter’s girlfriend of nine years accepted his proposal, breaking the hearts of female fans around the country.
Carter and Dillon met through university friends in 2000 and started dating a couple of years later.
The star first-five, who has been voted New Zealand’s sexiest man in a number of polls, tore a groin tendon during the final training session before the All Blacks’ pool match against Canada in the Rugby World Cup 2011, forcing him to miss the rest of the tournament.
Shaun Johnson, the Warriors’ 2011 young NRL player of the year, has re-signed with the club until at least the end of the 2014 season.
After an exceptional rookie campaign which culminated in his appearance in the NRL grand final, the 21-year-old has signalled his commitment to the club.
"I’ve had an amazing year and I’m really excited about the future here at the Vodafone Warriors," said Johnson.
"They’ve developed me, given me the chance to play in the NRL and I want to repay everyone for the support I’ve received.
"I’ve been lucky enough to experience the NRL grand final in my very first season and I want to do all I can to give myself the chance of playing a lot more first-grade games."
After an injury-disrupted start to the season, Johnson made his NRL debut against the Sydney Roosters in June, going on to play 16 first-grade games.
The announcement of Johnson’s contract extension comes a week after confirmation experienced Kiwi international Thomas Leuluai is to return to the Warriors in 2013 and follows the announcement that off-contract standoff James Maloney will return to Australia after the 2012 season.
"I’ve really enjoyed playing alongside Jimmy and learning from him," said Johnson.
"Hopefully we’ll have the chance to improve our combination again next year.
"While it is disappointing Jimmy has made the decision to finish up here at the end of 2012, it’s great for us that Thomas is coming back to the club. His experience in tests and Super League and Challenge Cup finals will be a big help in my development."
Warriors head coach Brian McClennan said retaining Johnson until the end of the 2014 season was critical to the club’s future.
"I’ve really enjoyed watching Shaun’s development," he said.
"He has come right through the club’s system and I’m excited about working with him to help him reach his potential."
