hi ppl! i'm in Christchurch now~! it's a bit cold here. not sure how cold but when u talk, smoke comes out of your mouth. so i'm guessing it's somewhere below 10 degrees? after i left hastings, i was spending a bit time in Wellington, crazy weather there. it can be sunny in the morning and cloudy in the afternoon and drizzling in the evening. while strolling on the street of wellington, a car stop and the driver inside looked at me. i was so surprised! it was my high school classmate! haven't seen him for 10 years. we met up the next day at lunch and talk about past and present stuffs. it was good to catch up! and he's newly wedded. time flies. it's surprising enough to meet a group of ppl from Chile and Argentina (we stayed in the same backpackers and work in the same factory back in Hastings) and we also stayed in the same backpackers in Wellington. after spending almost a week in Wellington, i decided to had down to south island on a ferry. my first stop in south island was Picton. a small town at the tip of south island. most of the ppl who travels to south island have to come here first then continue with their journey. at Picton, i stayed at this lovely backpackers called The Villa. it has won award for best backpackers few years back. i met some french ppl who is really friendly there. and also there was this crazy man staying there. crazy, as in he talks and laugh to himself. it's a bit freaky. one night at Picton is enough for me and i headed down to Nelson. it's a much bigger town compared to Picton. At Nelson, i decided to try out the sea kayaking at Abel Tasman National Park. i accidentally bumped into my HK friend who parted with us in Wellington with her bf. we did the sea kayaking together in a group. it was a tiring full day kayaking but it was worth it. the kayak trip cost about $165 including lunch, tea break and shuttle bus from Nelson to Kaiteriteri. i can hardly lift my left arm at the end of the day. i left Nelson yesterday to come to meet my jap friend whom i met in Auckland on my first day in Nz. the thing is, my bus schedule says 10.15am departing from Nelson but somehow when i got on the bus, the bus driver said i'm not on the list but he was kind enough to give me a lift to Picton and from Picton another connecting bus to Christchurch. this morning i re-checked the schedule and it says 10.15am! hmmp! i don't know if i made the mistake or they have. cos the bus driver called back to office and they said i was suppose to get on the 8.30am bus. anyhow, i'm here in Christchurch and i'm staying at my hometown friend's house. TQ Ellen if u are reading this!
i'm going out now to meet a Taiwan friend whom i met in Wellington. till then, be good yo'all!
