Dejagoo is the strange feeling that you've been in this sticky situation before. It is dejavu due to goo. Usual symptoms are shivers down once's spine followed by disgust, especially if actual goo is involved.

The biggest city in New Zealand. By Australian and world standards needs to catch up in terms of public transport and livability, although I think this is starting to happen so I am not bitching too much.
Auckland and Wellington are New Zealand's largest cities.

The largest city in New Zealand, situated in the north island. Probably the blindest city in the country to the fact that the rest of the country exists. Aucklanders are very similar to Americans with their one-person SUVs and angry drivers; See JAFA.

The most populated city in New Zealand, being about 1.5 million. IT is situated at one of the narrowest points on the North Island, and has been host to such events as the America's Cup. Also know as the City of Sails, for its keen interest in yachting.
Many New Zealanders argue that Auckland should, in fact be the Capital City of New Zealand, for its size, growth, infrastructure and sights. It also boasts some of the best golf courses in New Zealand, such as Formosa Auckland Country Club, Gulf Harbour, The Grange...and many many more.
Auckland is home to The Warriors League team, and the Auckland Blues, for Rugby Union.

The largest city in New Zealand and the shit hub of the world. The growth of the city far exceeded original plan s leading to massive infrastructure failure and problems with the mediocre sewage system. The city is literally spewing too much shit.

The shittiest most crime filled city in New Zealand. They like to pretend they're the best and convince bands on tour to only go there. Mostly full of Maoris and pacific islanders.
Atleast its not Auckland. They'd kill you.
