NZ Trip #1

It all started when a couple of our friends invited us to buy these promotional tickets to Auckland during Rugby World Cup 2011, at first I wasn't really into it coz I was afraid if we couldn't come up with enough money to spend for the travelling and stuff but Naz got quite excited especially because they chose a date during the RWC. So bought the promotion tickets from JetStar around RM1.2k for both of us return! Rather cheap wasn't it?? But ofcourse little that we know what we're gonna go through with JetStar...........

First, 3 weeks before date of departure Jetstar called us and said the flight was canceled so we had to move the date either a day earlier or a day later. We opted for a day earlier, so we asked for compensation from Jetstar since the change has interfered with our accommodation schedule and everything - only after we came back from New Zealand did we receive the compensation vouchers after calling them up so many times. And ofcourse the transit flight from Singapore to Auckland was delayed, but it was a blessing in disguise because! Jetstar managed to lost my friend's baby stroller so most of our time spent in Changi Airport was running around looking for the stroller T_T and believe me the stewardess nor the Jetstar officers were any helpful, they were infact very clueless.. Oh well, that's what you got for taking cheap flights.. Note that Jetstar is the Australian version of AirAsia...

Anyways on to the photos!
Baby Nia Hasya stroller got lost in between transit boohoo :(

Finally found it at Lost&Found after hours of chasing around! All is well again. Note that Baby Aulea was influenced by Amat to look up and to the side -_-" (pengaruh rakan sebaya bapanya.. tsk tsk)

After 10 hours flight from Singapore - Auckland, we finally arrived! Little that I know that it was actually freezing outside at 10 degrees!! Rain and windy day brrrrr, I can't really stand cold  weather :(

On our way to Auckland City, but ofcourse an ALL BLACKS KFC!

Changed my boots to my trusty red Bata sneakers for walking around in the city. It was Sunday so most shops are closed :( and it was really windy brrrrrr...........

The first Kebab shop we found, Kebab on Queens at Queens Street. Filling up our empty stomach.

The boys going crazy in front of Mt. Eden Stadium, one of us - Nan went to see a rugby game there in between Fiji vs Samoa I think. 

Infront of a cute house right in front of the stadium, so cute we wanna move in immediately haha. In our dreams indeed!

The Estima we rented for our stay, needed a big car for our big 'family' and because we're staying out of town so it's easier to move around. El-Cheapo de Jucy!

Goofing around in Auckland City.

STAR-ian rugby fans.

Eh look, Menara Kuala Lumpur! NOT! It's Skycity Tower :P

Once again, Naz going berserk -_-" Giant rugby ball at the end of Queen Street.

After walking around town for awhile we came back to our small one night room at Columbia Apartment, not recommended if you have a big family or even if you have children with you as the room was rather small for NZD110 per night. Alas we only needed just one night there because the house we rented was not available a day earlier, remember that our flight was canceled and changed to an earlier date? Oh well, looking forward to show y'all pictures of the house we stayed in, in my next post!
