Dinner at Moto Sushi

Moto Sushi is a little Japanese style restaurant tucked away in the heart of Parnell Road, Brian took me here on our second date and since then it’s become one of our favourite places to have date night – I must admit I’m still very English and love my roast dinners and the thought of having rice or noodles everyday doesn’t turn me on at all.. this has become very hard since dating Brian, who comes from Hong Kong and lives on a noodle diet. Moto Sushi

But we normally compromise with each other and will eat ‘white man food’ on a Saturday and then on Sunday we will go and eat Asian style foods. Whenever Moto Sushi is on the cards for date night I will pick this over any ‘white man’ restaurant.

I’ll admit I have the same dish every time I go there, but it’s one of my favourite things to eat and it’s good value for money too! My go to dish is the Salmon Bento Box, Brian will no doubt always go to the dinner or special bento box too because you get a bit of everything and it’s enough to fill both of us up – which is a plus because Brian could eat a horse and still feel hungry!

For $18.50 you get Rice, Miso, and the Salmon Dinner box, which is delicious, I would recommend the salmon bento box if your not a massive fan of Asian style foods and you want to be safe and not too adventurous (basically me) as you cannot go wrong with teriyaki salmon, sushi and tempura – (deep fried vegetables). moto sushi

If your planning to go to Moto Sushi during the weekend, (they don’t open on a Sunday) I would say try and either go for either an early dinner (around 5:30-6:30) or after 8, it’s open until 10pm, but it can get very busy and once the tables are full your only option are benches at the front of the restaurant which can become a tight fit once you have a 2 bento boxes and drinks.

  • So.. I’ve decided to take a break from blogging/social media. The past 3 years has been a crazy experience and I have enjoyed every minute of it but sometimes it’s good to take a step back and focus on you and your life. Not focusing on what your going to post on Instagram or what will make a good photo for a blog post. There’s SO much more to life than worrying about likes, followers or views but it’s so easy to get caught up with this and it’s actually so unhealthy.

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone to has supported me over the past three years, wether it’s reading a post or liking a picture on Instagram, I’ve had some amazing opportunities thrown my way over the years and it’s been amazing. 
I’ve created a private personal account ( @chloekeen_98 ) so feel free to follow me over there, I’ll post a few times but for now I want to focus on enjoying life and embrace the adventures in the front of me. I’m sure I’ll be back sooon💓
  • Can’t believe it’s been over a year since my first adventure in NZ😶 since leaving the UK I’ve made a conscious effort to step out of my comfort zone and start saying ‘yes’ to things I wouldn’t normally do.. Jet skiing being one of them. Yes we might of had a near death (slight exaggeration) experience, but I had a great time. If your ever given an opportunity that you would normally turn down, grab onto it and say yes, experience new things because you never know what might come out of it! ✨
  • Saturday morning essentials. Rubbish weather in Auckland means cricket is off. But hey that means I finally have some time for some retail therapy!
  • Found this beauty last night😍
  • I’ve had a lot of people say to me recently how much happier I look, and it’s honestly the nicest feeling ever that other people around me are noticing a change in me.. for the better. 
The past few weeks I’ve focused on my myself, my life and my future and I finally feel like I’ve got my S*** together!! I’ve decided what I want to get out of life and how to achieve it.. but also how to appreciate today and what’s happening now. 
It’s so easy to get caught up in the next 5 or 10 years from now, that the days just fly away from you, but really appreciating what is around you and who are around you is so important. 
Sometimes taking a few minutes, hours or even days to sit yourself and re-evaluate how your life is going, what’s going well and what you need to focus on is so important and so so rewarding. 🌻
  • Making my NZ cricket debut today🏏 Going to feel strange not having my brother has a batting partner👊🏼👫
  • Making sure that I’m getting beach ready with @hawaiiantropic_nz .. thank you for my lovely surprise package.. bring on NZ summer😍☺️
  • Going away and putting my everyday life on hold for a weekend was the best thing I could have done. It’s allowed me to prioritise the important things in life again, and forget about the things that won’t matter in 2,5 or 10 years time. 
Don’t forget how short life really is, and how so much can change in one second. Never take anything for granted and appreciate everything and everyone around you 💓
