4 Oct Vacation in Auckland New Zealand trip

Today we set off to visit Fort Victoria and Takarunga / Mt Victoria Track. It would be lots of walking experience to admire beautiful scenery while visiting the places in New Zealand. Quite an adventure for us since this would be a journey of entertainment with beautiful views.

As you can view from the photographs above, we had a long walking experience and indeed the best that we could ever hope for. It was a very good form of walking for a healthy lifestyle. The air was indeed refreshing and of course not forgetting the nice meals we had at the Japanese restaurant in Auckland New Zealand.

Plenty of exercising our feet as well as breathing in all those fresh air with negative ions at the mountain top. It was a great feeling of joys.

Well, that ends today’s adventure and if you have any comments or been to New Zealand, please share with us and our audience. Thank you and do have a nice day!

3 Oct in Auckland New Zealand holidays

Pose with Cherry Blossom Tree In Background

Today would be another lovely day of outing as the weather was so cooling around 15 degrees or so. It would be a great day to shop and eat whatever that we could get from this nice place in New Zealand.

Just some of the most mouth watering dishes we could think of to order and enjoyed our meals. Indeed we could get just as much nice and delicious food in Auckland, New Zealand. It was like a paradise in heaven to enjoy oneself here in New Zealand.

Hamilton Gardens

We dropped by to Hamilton Gardens and did some exploration around this area.

Duck in the pond?
Latte coffee
Sparrow on the tree branch

More eating at the Good E Brothers Restaurant after much walking. So it seemed that there would never be lack of food when you are in New Zealand as you could really enjoyed these delicious and yummy food along the way.

Nice pond viewing

Well, it would be just another day of fun outing in the garden plus not to forget those delicious meals we had along the way in our journey. Overall, we had a nice time visiting places in Auckland as well as Hamilton on the same day since it was just an hour or so drive away.

Hope you too have enjoyed viewing some of the photographs we had taken during the day. Please do share with us your comments or views if you had been to New Zealand as well. Have a nice day!

2 Oct in Auckland New Zealand Adventure

It was a lucky day when I saw double rainbow
Indeed it was lucky

Another good day of outing and got a surprise when we caught in seeing double rainbow after a downpour. That was indeed a lucky day for us.

Hamburger for lunch
Another burger
More burger
Steak for lunch
More steak
Porterhouse potato
Lamb shank for lunch

When in New Zealand, all we could think of would simply be tasting all the nice and yet delicious food around the area of Auckland. It was indeed pretty delicious and the steak was really juicy since it was much fresher than those being imported. You will know what I mean if you had been to New Zealand to taste those steaks.

These were only some of the photographs taken today as we were mostly involved with other activities when driving around in New Zealand. Once again, if you had been to New Zealand, please do share your experience and comments with us as well as our readers here.

1 Oct in Auckland New Zealand

Home garage

Today was a lazy day as I was not feeling well since I got a dizzy spell with my whole head feeling of spinning. Nothing much was done today except for a good rest to recover.

Simple cooked meal
Some dishes
Hot pepper pasta
Self made sauce

Nothing much to talk about as you could see that I had only taken a few snapshots of food itself. Once I got better, you will read more about the holiday adventure in Auckland, New Zealand. Thanks for reading and do share if you have been to New Zealand.

30 Sept vacation in Auckland New Zealand

Another beautiful and yet cooling day for outing and sightseeing in New Zealand. We practically loved the scenery as we could breath in the fresh air of the country side as we drove along the highway. It was really a very pleasant drive as we viewed the greenery along the way.

Future home

After an hour plus of driving, we reached the future home in New Zealand. It was rather a big area where this place was built. Imagine the amount of space it had allocated for this place. Definitely about 4 times the size of HDB flat for 5 rooms.

Guess who?
Sock slider design

Guess the sock slider was a good design for those who are having hard time with wearing them. Simply put on the slider and put your foot in, that’s it. Isn’t that kind of innovative?

It was a fun day outing for sightseeing and feasting. Let us write again another day for our trip in Auckland, New Zealand. Hope everyone reading our blog will have a nice time viewing those photographs. If you have been to New Zealand, do share your experience here with us as well as all our readers.

Lastly, hope everyone will take care of themselves during this period where Coronavirus is spreading worldwide. Practice good personal hygiene like washing your hands with soap often and when coughing or having flu, please just be kind to wear a mask to protect thyself as well as others. Be safe and have a healthy lifestyle.

Horses and sheep

Another fine day to be out in the country side as we journeyed our way on the road. Just a quick snapshot from my handphone as we traveled along the road. From afar, we could see some horses as well as sheep helping themselves with the grasses.

After shopping at the country side street food stalls, we proceed to the Hunua Falls. We followed the trail up to the hill top to get a bird eye’s view of the Waterfall. And after which, we came down to walk the loop and ended up closer to the waterfall. It was one of the best scenery one could ever enjoy to see up close. It was a really fantastic view and breathing in the fresh negative ions in the air. That was really breath taking indeed.

Clear blue sky view
Viewing houses along the way

Walking around this neighborhood and viewing some of the houses around this area. It was part of the area in Hamilton New Zealand. This would be a new neighborhood as it would be starting to build new houses in this area.

Those photographs above were taken from my handphone and we will show more photographs taken from the camera below. Hope you will enjoy viewing them and if you have been to New Zealand, do share your views as we love the environment and the cool temperature.

So, if you have any comments to share, I would welcome them. Tell us about New Zealand that you had visited and whether or not you had enjoyed it like we did.

Rows of stores

Took a stroll at this marketplace where they were selling stuffs like vegetable, honey bee, fishes and many other things. Since it was pretty cooling, we took our time to stroll down at each store to view what they were selling.

Smoked salmons

Today was just a lazy day of doing some sightseeing and shopping. Did our own kind of smoked salmons. Surprisingly, it tasted pretty nice. Guess the salmon here was much fresher since they have their own supply of fishes without needing to import.

Once again this end the day and we will continue again another day to show you more photographs from Auckland, New Zealand.
