:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

What is BAXI?

BAXI or "bicycle taxi" is the kiwi version of "beca" (Malay) or "tuk-tuk" (Thai) - an eco-friendly pedicab.
BAXIs are actually large tricycles professionally built by certified engineers. The pilots sit in front of 2 passengers. 
BAXIs also come equipped safety features such as screwed on arm rests, wheel guards, rear disc brakes, front and rear lights, turning indicators, rear view mirrors and even cheerful sounding bells!  
At $5 per ride from mid Queen St to lower Queen St, it is perhaps a bit pricey. But I'm sure it'll be a fun experience :)
