Durians Are My Friends

As redundant as it may seem, I’ve been back from Aussieland for a while now and only now that I realize (since this blog was started when Melbourne City was just there), that blogging here, on WordPress, has never been done in Boleh-land. Well, here I am, doing the long overdue and the short supplied – feeding my pet goldfish.

Fortunately for me, this pet goldfish can’t actually starve to death and unfortunately for this pet goldfish, it can’t actually starve to death. Little fishie here may have been kept hungry at best but hey, 10k visits translate to a pretty admirable amount of attention. I’ve decided to change the outlook of the blog at every 10k milestone provided the streams of traffic remain as unsurprising as it has been. Let’s not make this blog like Kenny’s one (not that it has the potential to anyway). I don’t relish the thought of appealing to absolutely anyone and everyone. Let’s keep this between you and me =).

Right, the trip. Of course.

The day we rented the car, a Toyota Carib. Freedom. Yes it tastes sweet, we know.

p1010095.jpg

Rapunzel personified. Yes, I insist.

p1010111.jpg

There Kat, you get to be the tall one in this picture.

p1010166.jpg

Fai, Kat, Apple and Lake Taupo.

p1010190.jpg

All three of us went together so we didn’t actually have a chance to take a video of ourselves but this baby, looks like this when in action. Needless to say, it wasn’t us but you would’ve seen something like that.

p1010258.jpg

Rafting was “one of the best activities we did in NZ.” (Su Lin, 2007) Well said.

p1010273.jpg

And of course, there’s the made-famous-by-Kenny-Sia, Zorb. Only in NZ, people. Monopoly bs.

p1010343.jpg

The Maori Cultural Village showed us how a bunch of carvings can all stare at a piece of rock and make funny faces… forever.

p1010365.jpg

Berry picking is evil I tell you. It exposes your inner cravings for berries and most (being the 3 of us) would succumb to a frenzied state, wildly rampaging through the garden of berries. In words: best strawberries I’ve ever tasted.

p1010371.jpg

In picture. This oughtta pop some heads. Well maybe not yours, Sam.

p1010442.jpg

I didn’t know Middle Earth was full of Hobbit droppings.

[Translate to Manglish]: Why so many goat shit wan?! KNS!

p1010450.jpg

Little Hobbit holes. Bilbo and Frodo’s is the one on the top right.

p1010457.jpg

The other side of the ‘Party Tree’. It’s the one where Bilbo made his speech in ‘The Fellowship of The Ring’.

p1010480.jpg

And this is where Gandalf sat with Bilbo and smoked their pipes. Blardy smokers.

p1010500.jpg

As a LOTR fan, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! full stop

p1010540.jpg

Kat: Fai you look damn ugly!

Fai: Well somebody has got to spoil the picture.

p1010548.jpg

They should come up with a word that means “Goddammit NZ is beautiful”.

p1010574.jpg

Made our way to Cathedral Cove and what’s that word again? GoddammitNZisbeautiful!!

p1010576.jpg

Heh… I can be such a poser at times. *blushes*

p1010590.jpg

Kat, why you so poser wan?? Lol

p1010594.jpg

Looking at it now, it kinda looks like Megatron’s foot.

p1010600.jpg

p1010604.jpg

Kat says she’s proud of herself cos she took those pictures wor… I’d say the model made her proud. *giggles*

p1010632.jpg

Say oni 45 minutes, took us blardy 2 hours plus.

p1010661.jpg

You see, when you’re in NZ, there’s always something out of the ordinary to see.

p1010687.jpg

And the favorite-stop-of-all award goes to: Opononi.

p1010713.jpg

We weren’t drunk but we managed to lose one of those property ownership cards. Strong wind mah..

p1010729.jpg

Sand-boarding. 2-minutes walk up the sand hill that makes you wanna die, 2-3 seconds down the slope (which is amazing), 15 minutes sit-down-cannot-move-adi-lah-wanna-die-adi-lah. You think running on the beach is hard, try climbing a beach.

p1010765.jpg

Some freshwater lake somewhere that’s really nice. No need for the latter part I guess.

p1010779.jpg

Kat: Cannot find the market la, how??

Fai: Just walk towards Sky Tower la no diu adi la…

p1010788.jpg

FAI FINANCE. For all your FAInancial needs, at the most FAInancially affordable rates.

p1010800.jpg

This block of transparent concrete is supposedly as strong as the other non-transparent ones that are easily presumed ‘very safe to walk on’. Should I feel safe or should I feel like I’m standing on one whole floor of ‘strong’ glass?

p1010823.jpg

They have this thing called ‘SkyJump’ and you can actually see people gliding down from 300+ meter. Siao lang.

p1010822.jpg

Well apparently having stage fright is not enough to save your ass from getting a boot from behind.

p1010846.jpg

Let’s not forget about ‘The Baby Factory’!

“Oh, so this is where they make babies…” (Kathryn, 2007)

All in all, really enjoyed NZ. Hah! Since Su Lin does not maintain a blog, this makes me the first one to blog about our NZ trip. Kat, lazy la you Kat. Haha…

Anyway, will be back for more enthralling adventures of that Ipoh fella! Well not always enthralling, there are the stupid, random, suddenly-out-of-nowhere posts once in a while. Ok fine, most of the time they’re all stupid, random, suddenly-out-of-nowhere posts. Haha…

因为他在放屁.
