hey u... i'm still pretty much alive and kicking here! working my ass off at the apple pack house at the moment. just too tired to blog when i come home from work. it's just too tiring.
life in nz is good. it helps me take my weights off certain things.
in other words u can say that i'm running away from reality. but what is life if we can't choose to live the way we want.
i really think that life is too short to be doubting.
i never regret coming here. this trip. this backpacking experience really make me more daring in certain things i never thought i could.
sometimes i do miss home. family and friends. food back home...
but i really love it here. the air, the stars at nights...and i can even see milky way at certain places in nz, especially Lake Tekapo...here in Nelson too! : )
i met up with a lot of old friends i haven't seen for ages. it's funny we never make enough effort to meet up with friends whom live close to us. and out of the blue, u go and travel half way around the globe just to meet up with them!

apple packing...hmm....i'm working for ENZA...yeap, the apple u buy from supermarket or pasar malam...
it's a pretty easy job. our job is to select the good apples and throw away rotten, bruise, punctured ones...well u get the point!
now i can scan and pick 1 apple in less than 1 sec...hahaha we pack them in boxes...exporting them to other places as well as locally. it's a busy job because sometimes some ppl are so slow we ended up doing double tripple job...the apples keep on coming in rows...and it never stop...so we are always busy standing in lines...and pick and pack into tray and then place in boxes...it's a boring job but it pays for my food, accommodation and my backpacking expenses!
if u are asking why i never upload any photos here is because 1) i'm too lazy. 2) lazy....ahahahha sorry...just too lazy. maybe i will when i'm really free.
i'm almost done travelling in nz. the next thing i want to do is snowboarding, up on the mountain in winter! can't wait... my only concern now is whether i should get a proper job which allows me to have a work permit so i can stay here longer or book the next flight home after i'm done with travelling? so much to think but i hardly think about it properly.

i met a lot of girls on this trip. i have come to realize backpackers such as me are very carefree ppl. but there are also some whom are still very in touch with reality. the wants and needs of a modern stereotype based on society's perception. not that i have come to any conclusion but that most girls/women from asian countries that i met here still prefer a man with well/proper background. in this case my amigo, its $$$. i'm not saying that money is the least of concern in relatiionship but the very fundamental in all beings. lets face it, without money, i can't come on this "long vacation" in nz no? oh well...i'm not looking for love now but if it finds me i'm glad.

just embracing my life now as it is. on the way back from work, i always try to steal some moments out the window and look up into the sky...it's just so beautiful here at night...sky filled with stars...
