Whenuapai, West Auckland

About Whenuapai:

Whenuapai is a suburb and aerodrome in the western Albany Ward of Auckland, New Zealand. It is situated on the northwest coast of Waitematā Harbour, 15 kilometres northwest of Auckland’s city centre. The word Whenuapai means good land in Māori.

It is one of the landing points for the Southern Cross Telecommunications Cables, a trans-Pacific telecommunications cable network.

At the 2018 New Zealand census, Whenuapai had a population of 3,888 with 1,263 households.

Royal New Zealand Air Force Facilities 

The construction of Whenuapai as a base for the Wellington bomber aircraft started in 1937.

RNZAF Base Auckland is a Royal New Zealand Air Force Base situated in the upper reaches of Waitematā Harbour, Auckland, New Zealand. Formerly, the base consisted of two separate airfields, Whenuapai and Hobsonville.

Hobsonville was built as a seaplane station in 1928 and until 1967 was the RNZAF's primary flying vessel based in New Zealand. The construction of Whenuapai as a base for Vickers Wellington bomber aircraft began in 1937, and the hangars were completed in 1939.

From 1945 to 1965, Whenuapai was also the civil international airport of Auckland. In 1965, the bases of Whenuapai and Hobsonville were merged into the RNZAF Base Auckland.

An accurate representation of how I’m balancing life right now 🙃 ...

Ugggh I didn’t want to go out today. I was tired, and wanted to laze about on the couch but I knew the kids needed to get out of the house.

So I filled up my coffee cup, and ended up taking the kids to the Tui Glen Reserve, out in West Auckland. That playground / whole area is phenomenal for families.

I figured we could spend the morning out and about; and then laze about in the afternoon. Which is exactly what we did.

Do you have a favourite playground that you take your kids to?

#AukilaniAlumni with some #MondayMotivation ✨Talofa lava, meet Dr Emma Chang Wai who was born and raised in South Auckland and Samoa. 🇼🇸

"Being raised in Samoa - New Zealand was often referred to as the land of milk and honey. Yes correct. But New Zealand is also the land of opportunities." 🤩

"When we first moved here, I had to finish high school. My mum had to work as a checkout operator and at the lotto section of the local supermarket. She wanted me to go to a Catholic school because we are a Catholic family and I always went to Catholic schools in Samoa. However, we couldn't afford private Catholic education. So I attended Mangere College. It was the best decision for me. It doesn’t matter what school you go to, poor or rich, private school or public school - as long as you work hard, you can and you will achieve!"

Emma graduated from the #UniversityOfAuckland with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery #MBCHB in 2011. 👩🏻‍⚕️ She is now a #GeneralPractitioner across #WestAuckland and #SouthAuckland suburbs.

Emma's advice for UoA Maori and Pasifika students is to "avoid the temporary distractions of life. During this challenging time, keep your eye on the prize. Work hard and you will succeed, you will get there!" 📚😍

I let it all go today and embraced the ocean.
.
.
Best swim I have had in over a decade, followed by getting a few rows in with a good friend - a forever memory in the making.

There are four gorgeous jumpers in this photo!! I am wearing Snowy Forest designed by midori_hirose_knit thoughtfully knit in Anene DK by allthesheepandroses Angela is wearing the best version of the Ursa sweater I’ve ever seen (more pics and info on that!).
.
I’m knitting an Ankers Cardigan in the new Ruck sport weight yarn - can you believe it’s Atomic Bubble gum? I couldn’t resist. Angela’s knitting on my Strathcona sweater (more on that soon too!).
