This scene has always reminded me of an old, poor, rundown part of a Mediterranean village. Or maybe the backside of Venice.
I suspect it's a multi-million dollar Manly view.

Green milk

NZ owl milk label (Mike Duggan)Green or even Yellow Milk and Blue Milk... ever heard of such a thing?

If you're a Kiwi (native of the land we know as Aotearoa/New Zealand) then you'll be nodding and thinking, "Duh! Of course". If you're from anywhere else in the world you might be thinking one of these:
It's the colours of the tops/labels. And they mean:
  • Blue: full fat
  • Green: trim
  • Yellow: trim with extra calcium
There might even be other colours denoting even weirder milk - I think that the lighter the shade the less "fat" in it.

So, when you get asked, "Blue or green" now you know.
And for you information, I don't care, just stick whatever colour milk you've got to hand in that coffee and give it to me.


PS: In my search for the Wikipedia link to New Zealand I found this:
New Zealand is a hamlet in Buckinghamshire, England, to the north of Aylesbury town centre. The hamlet has been entirely swallowed up by the urban growth of Aylesbury, however the public house of the same name remains today. The hamlet gains its name from a breed of cow, that was supposedly farmed there.
