Seems that they went to East Coast Park instead of Escape Theme Park today.
Well... it don't really matter.

I don't see myself the way people see me, just as people don't see the way they see themselves.
I don't wanna go this Wednesday... ...

3 more days to the end of 2008. It means nothing to me. It is simply the passing of another day, another 24 hours gone, 1 day closer to the end.

Yesetrday I ran... There never was this overwhelming urge to run, till yesterday... I don't know, Anger? Guilt? Sorrow? One of these emotions triggered it. Maybe 2 out of 3, or all 3. I don't know.

Why were there people staying behind yesterday when all the rest had left? Did they mean it? or did they fake it?

2 days ago was Christmas. 4 more days to the end of 2008. 361 days have passed by. And yet it only seems like yesterday was a brighter day.

The night is always darkest before the dawn... This may turn out to be the longest night ever. Or I'm trapped in a nightmare world.

Back home!

Kia Ora! I'm back at last from my 10 day tour of NZ, the land of the long clouds. Well in my previous post I blogged about the first 4 days, now I'm gonna blog about the remainging 6 days.

Day 5 (Christchurch to Queenstown)
Well, as mentioned in my previous post, I went to Queenstown, the main tourist town of the area. On the way there we were supposed to go to Mt. Cook, the tallest mountain in NZ. But unfortunately, due to the weather we could not go up the mountain... We did a jetboat ride, Was a very fun thing to do, gets your adrenaline rushing! Well, anyway the journey from Christchurch to Queenstown took almost the whole day. By the time we reached our hotel in Queenstown, it was already dinner time. We had chinese dinner, and it wasn't bad, rather good even. Afterwich, my family and I went shopping for movie memrobillia. So my mum got lotsa stuff, and I didn't get any Star Wars posters for myself... So in any case we went back to our hotel at around 8-9 pm, then we watched 'The Last King of Scotland' and drank kiwi fruit liquer, ate some kiwi fruit shortbread, chocolate, nuts, whatnot. We enjoyed ourselves.

Day 6 (Queenstown)
So, it was a free day for us so we did alot of optional tours, First thing on or list was to do Nomad Safaris Lord of the Rings tour. They showed us the place where they filmed the Lord of the Rings, and at the same time gave us a chance to pan for GOLD! I didn't strike it rich though... After that we all went horseback riding. It was so fun, and the scenery along the route they took us was just absolutely breathtaking! BUT! I'm never gonna go horseback riding ever again! My groin and butt area still hurts! After that we took the gondola up to the hill where we could play luge. It's so fun! We raced down the hill on our luge and I got 2nd place! We went back to our hotel after that to rest and watch 'Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End'.

Day 7 (Queenstown to Dunedin)
Well, we woke up the next morning and made our way to Dunedin, a place where there is very strong Scottish influence, in it's architecture, food what not. We didn't do much in Dunedin, more of city tour then activities. We then checked in to our hotel and had a 2 course western dinner in our hotel, then we went to their 24-hour convenience store to buy some snacks, then we went back to our rooms to enjoy our snacks and rest.

Day 8 (Dunedin to Christchurch)
We did some last minute shopping in Dunedin and almost ended up buying kilts! Well we left Dunedin at about 10-11am and made our way up north back to Christchurch. On the way back we stopped at Moeraki to take pictures of the Moeraki boulders. The beach was so cold, but my mum and I ended up picking up beautiful seashells! We then continued for another 2 hours from Moeraki to Christchurch. When we reached Christchurch at about 3:30pm, we went shopping and I got a new pair of shoes! We then checked into our hotel before going for Chinese dinner. After the dinner my family and I took the tram for sightseeing before going back to sleep.

Day 9 (Christchurch to Singapore)
We woke up the next morning ready to go home, I'll miss Pete, our coach captain. He's so much fun! Well in anycase we boarded the plane at about 2:15pm and started our 10 hour journey home.

Day 10 (Singapore)
Arrived in Singapore and went home. What else?!

Coming in from Christchurch

Hey guys! If you're reading this I just want you to know that I miss y'all very very much!

So anyways, like I promised I would blog if I get the chance, so now I'm gonna give you the details of the past 4 days in New Zealand.

Day 1 (Auckland to Rotorua)
So firstly, wanna thank all those who dropped me messages and came to see me off. Really much appreciated. So I left Singapore at about 9.30pm, 30 minutes behind schedule. So it was a 10 hour flight, rather boring, not much to do. Anyways I watched The Dark Knight, Hellboy 2, House M.D. and read some books. Whilst in the air I caught a revelation from God. It may not be much to some, but to me it means so much. Anywho, we touched down in Auckland, New Zealand (North), at around 11am. The weather is friggin' cold, and mind you the season right now is summer! Winds are blowing like never before, tempreatures hovering around 16-20 degrees. So we did some sight seeing on the bus while on the way to see some geysers and mud pools, The place is called 'Te Whakarewarra...... Something, something, something... It's too long to remember... The word is actually the 3rd longest word in new Zealand, consisting of 37 letters. The longest word consists of 87 letters, and it's a person's name... It'll be a mouthful just to call him... Anyways, while at this place, we caught a glimpse of Maori (The indegineous people of NZ) culture, from it's trades to it's buildings. The geysers were amazing, the mud pool, not so... All in all we had a great first day. We then proceeded to check in to our hotel called Sudima Hotel. It's a rather quaint place, more of a motel if y'ask me. There was computer and internet connection there, but costs $2 for 15 mins. Here in the current hotel it's only 3$ for 1/2 an hour.

Day 2 (Rotorua)
Woke up at 5.30am, and it's already bright like it's 7am... Anyways we took a 5 min bus ride to a place where we had a champagne breakfast! We took a cablecar up to the mountain and then walked to the restaurant, the restaurant boasted a 360 degree view of Rotorua, which was the town we were staying at. The food was great, but the champagne was excellent! It was sweet, bubbly and very, very summer! After breakfast, at the same place, we went to ride the luge. Unfortunately for us, the intermediate and advanced course was closed, so we could only take the slower, scenic route, it was fun anyways, and I got some photos to show ya when I get back. After the luge, we proceeded to the Agrodome, a place where they rear and shear sheeps. Thoroughly enjoyed the show, as before, many pictures to show. After that we proceeded to the Kiwi 360, a Kiwi(the people) orchard where they raise kiwis! We got a tour of the compound and bought a bottle of kiwi wine, it's light and easy to drink, good for begginers. After that we proceeded back to Sudima Hotel for a traditional Hangi dinner. I'm gonna teach you some words now, so don't be puzzled when I use them back home.

Kia Ora --> Hello
Car-pai --> Good
Haere Mai --> Come here
Haere Rah --> Go there, or Good bye
Poo-kah-na --> Used to describe the bulging of the eye, protrusion of the tounge and the deep guttural noises produced from Maori warriors when they perform the Haka (Postural war dance)

All in all, dinner was great and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, after that we went to our rooms and went to sleep.

Day 3 (Rotorua to Auckland)
So we woke up at about 6am today, and for the love of Almighty God, it was raining! That brought the already cold weather down to 12 degrees! Oh well... In any case our first stop of the day was the Waitomo glow worm caves. I tell you it was beautiful, Whilst in the dark cave we could see thousands upon thousands of glow worms on the ceilings, and I thought to myself, "As many glow worms there are on the ceiling, as many my descendants shall be!" Unfortunately I don't have photos for you, because no photography was allowed... Oh well, anywho our next stop, which was 5 mins away, was the Angora Rabbit shearing shed. There they shear cute lil bunnies for their fur. I got a picture of it! After that stop it was a 2 hour journey back to Auckland from Rotorua. When we reached Auckland we went to Mt Eden, a dormant volcano, then stopped at a place to take picture of the Auckland harbour bridge before. After that we checked in to the Auckland SkyCity hotel where we spent one night before heading on to Christchurch.

Day 4 (Auckland to Christchurch)
We woke up at 7am in this morning to headon to the airpor to catch our 11am domestic flight to Christchurch (South). But unfortunately our flight was cancelled, we then spent 3 hours in the airport waiting for another flight at 2.10pm... Anywho, we reached Christchurch at about 3.30pm? I dunno... We then headed down to Cashmere mountain for breath taking scenery, then proceeded down to Cathedral Square to look at the cathedral, I wanted to take pictures, but a service was about to start, so I couldn't snap any pictures... Oh and I missed holy communion there by about 5 hours! In anycase we had a thai dinner afterwards and then checked in to Elms, a motel... Afterwhich I came down and started blogging. So tomorrow I'll be leaving Christchurch and heading down to Queenstown, then it'll be 5 more days before I see you again. Can't wait!

Much loves from me to y'all!

I'm leaving on a jet plane...

I'm leaving on a jet plane,

Don't know when I'll be back again. (Actually I do know!)

Well... I woke up from a rather disturbing dream, wasn't the most pleasant of dreams...

It's been awhile since I blogged, due to the fact that there isn't much to blog about.

I'll try my best to blog while I'm overseas if there is an internet cafe with good internet connection. If not you'll have to wait till I return to know more.

I have just posted up a rather old post, which I have decided not to post till now. Do read it if you're interested.
