Kiwi Word of the Day #2 – Chilly Bin
Katie: We’re thinking about taking a day or two to drive around the Peninsula.
Brian: Do you guys have a chilly bin? You could borrow one of ours.
I had no idea what Brian was talking about, so I kept the conversation going to figure out what on earth was being offered…
Katie: Do you think it’s necessary?
Brian: Sure! It’s always nice to have a cold beer in the afternoon or be able to keep some milk for brekkie.*
Chilly Bin – Kiwi term for a sealable box used to keep food cold, aka “cooler” or “ice chest”
*not worth it’s own post because it’s fairly intuitive, brekkie is slang for breakfast.
