New Zealand (Day 1) : Karangahape Road, Auckland.

Hi there!
How are you? Good?
That is basic phrase that I always heard when I am at oversea. They asking you "how are you? " everytime you enter their shop or whenever you wanna order or any. They're friendly.
20 October 2013 is another exciting and awesome date in my life. For me, every special date should be remember for the whole of my life. I am kind of person that always wanted to remember any anniversary date or any. So, today I will walk around Auckland city! Yeahhh.. I never imagine that I will come this far. I know, I come because of work but I really can't imagine how great is our God and how great is my bosses to give me this opportunity. I just can say thank for everything and I will try my best to look forward in this life.
Today, I just planned to visit 2 main places which is Karangahape road and Sky Tower. All these recommend by my sister and my colleague because I thought it will be far if I go other than this. But, I am wrong, everything is in front of my eyes actually, just nearby.
Firstly, I will share about Karangahape road.

New Zealand ( Arrival Day) : Rendezvous Grand Hotel




Hello!
As I promised last time, I will share the picture of the hotel that I am staying during my business trip to Auckland.
Before that, I want to share a very funny story when I come to this hotel. What happen was when the taxi driver asks me, we I'm going and I wrongly pronounced the Rendezvous Grand Hotel and when I saw the Rendezvous Grand hotel, I can't believe it! It's big hotel and I don't think I will stay here so I asked the taxi driver to wait for me outside the hotel and I went to confirm whether my name on the booking. And, yes there room under my name.haha, when I think back, its funny!So, here the hotel that I am staying. For more details, visit their website;
Here the one of the entrance of the hotel.
Let's explore my room...
My first impression on their hotel room is simply WOW! They had everything for me. They even have a sofa, working desk and etc..
Here is my working desk.. I come for work so I really need this..hahaha

The TV is just great. You can move around the TV on every angle that you want. hurmm...not bad huh!
Here is my stuff. My beloved TV and handbag..hahhaa
Here come the bed.. Very comfortable  bed! Love this!
This view from my hotel entrance..wow! Simply awesome.. I will visit this on the next day! So, stay tune for next post..hehe
The main entrance of the hotel. Sorry for very bad quality..huhu

Opps..sorry! I need to show you the foyer..hahaa.. this is view when you enter the room...
 I take opportunity to take picture of myself..hahaha
 Close up, please...hahahha
So, here is my"jakuness" overload...
That all about where I stayed in Auckland.
It's very great to staying at this hotel. If you have the plan to visit Auckland, I really recommend this hotel because it's located the centre of the Auckland city and it's very easy to access anywhere you wanted to go. If you looking for any cheap hotel, they are around here. Don't worry! Just google " Cheapest hotel around rendezvous grand hotel" and everything will come to you!

New Zealand : Dinner at Katsura



Hi there again!
As I mentioned previously, 19 October is a very special date for me. You may curious to know why, but I choose not to tell you because it's really private for me. What can I say is 19 October is a special date for me.
Since I travel to Auckland this year, its make more special. So, to make it more special, I went for dinner at hotel Japanese restaurants. During my stay at oversea, I just can eat Japanese food, I am not sure why but only that I feel can eat.
The restaurant just at level 1 of the hotel that I am stayed at Auckland, New Zealand. I wanted to go out, but very cold and dark so that why I came eat my dinner here.Eating alone is always terrible things that happen in my life. But, when you travel alone, all you need is get used to it. Hopefully one day, I will be able to share a delicious and expensive meal with someone. It's will be my treat for sure.

 Lonely chopstick, just like me...hahaha


 Whenever you ate Japanese food, don't miss the green tea.. it good for your body!
So, here is my dinner..nyum! Feel like wanna eat Japanese food again..hehe







 Look! I am eating very well..I finish up everything.. I won't leave any food anymore.



 Then, lastly, the dessert is here!Nyum!







So, that all for my special dinner. I love my dinner and I love the day! Such a great day.. Thanks to God for giving me such blessing in my life. If you feel like your life is not getting better or getting worst, just hanging there and be patient. Someday, the beautiful and magical day will come in your life.
Next is all about hotel that I am staying at Auckland.. It very huge and look great!

See you again,

Australia ( Day 2) : New South Wales,Sydney


Good day everybody!
I am so sorry for my long post or so many post about #australiajourney. hahaa.
Just wanna share my experience and I am sorry for not explain so touristy things. I promise next time, I will be tourist at Australia and share it with you guys for sure.
This time, I wanna share what am I doing at NSW, Sydney. As you may know, it's all about my job. I am working for Sony so I need to do my job here. What am I doing for Sony, I will reveal it very soon, not now. For me, I don't wanna talk about job related here because this is platform for me to not thinking of my job..haha but it's not mean I don't love my job, I just wanna have some space for my own things.
I spent most of my day at work place so I am not able to go to any touristy place, for example Opera House. Too bad! Its okay, next time I will come back here.






 Here is the road that I used during my time here. Its not busy but it feel cold everyday..

Here is the Macquire Shopping Mall and Train station. For your information, the opening and closing time for  this mall is different every day..
Visit their website for more info ;
http://www.macquariecentre.com.au/
It's very easy to walk around here. I love the environment, people and every scenery that I saw. Just fall in love.


During my last day here, I take time to go around the mall and look around..and what I really love about this mall is they already do promotion for Christmas. Wow! Very early right?
This puppy so cute..hehee

Everywhere is chocolate and I want buy everything but I need to think before I buy it.haha


Then, I went to Target. I think Target is like Tesco at our country..but it's a lot of stuff and it's expensive for me..haha. I end up buying nothing.. :)


Here is my inspiration. I feel like wanna do the same stuff.. This totally inspired me..Reveal sooooooon..


During night, the road is look like this. It's scary to walk alone but don't worry, nobody will harm you.
And, good news! I manage to find my favorite here..Cha Time!! Hahahaa.. it's taste the same but it's not taste like a home..hahaha

Then, one of my colleague went here before so she recommend me to buy this cookies. I tried one and it delicious..can't wait to share it with them.. :)


Another lonely road picture...hurmmmm. I just amazed with the scenery even the simple one.!

And not to forgot, my favourite Oreo Mcflurry..nyum! I miss this a lot! The size is more bigger and the taste is the same..

Look at my happy face when I found Mcflurry..hahaha


Last but not least, i meet my "soulmate food" here. My double cheeseburger..waaa..nyum2..


Basically, that all for my journey here. Not much but I learn and I saw. I am sorry for not sharing how beautiful and great is Sydney,Australia. Next time, I will do better.

For next post, I will share my experience at Auckland, New Zealand. Another exciting chapter in my life so far.

See you again,
