Things are getting better

The reason that I stopped blogging for some time is because I feel that I can hardly find thing to blog. As I’m having a kind of repetitive life at work. What I’m doing everyday now is more or less the same like the day before. The main thing we do is try to rush all works and get it done so that we can go back early. By early, I meant get off on time. This is kind of difficult. So far after one year of work. I only manage to go off on time like hmm… three times, maybe?

At first I was complaining and thinking that my work load is too much and I’m doing job which are not equivalent to my pay. But after a year of suffering, I realized that things are getting better. Although the things that I am doing now is still increasing compare to a year before. New implementations, more staff coming in and new workflows now has been improving my speed of work.

Most importantly what I have learnt throughout this whole week is to have a positive mind set. If you keep thinking that it’s going to be easy and things will be.

So if I manage to get through next week which is a more challenging week, I will totally changed my perception in life. Yo… Must marked it down to see how being positive can change you. If this doesn’t work out on the more challenging week, then I will go back to my usual way of thinking. wahaha….

TSS Earnslaw Lake Cruise

Today is the day which we will be cruising on Lake Wakatipu. We parked our car at the roadside and walked towards the port. Thankfully that I went in early Autumn so the weather was just fine.

While waiting at the port. Okay! This is an embarrassing photo. Attracted attention and people were laughing at me. Somehow forgot to change back the size of the picture after the first lake photo. So the rest of the photo is in landscape size.

People playing shotover jet. Wanted to try this out but somehow too stingy.

IMG_7909

Too stingy so just take photo with the pink biscuits.

We were counting NZ coins and thinking of getting rid of them. Since we can’t possibly exchange them back in M’sia. So coincidently we got exactly 5 dollars to pay for the keychain photo we took before we board.

We spent the rest of our time exploring the ship.

Milford sound

This was my favourite throughout the whole trip. So this shall be the first post of 2012. We followed a tour so we don’t have to drive.

We got up super early to prepare but we still have no time for breakfast.

IMG_7677

Had brunch bar as breakfast. We ate so many of these throughout the whole trip, just to save cost.

IMG_7683

So early, the sun had not rose yet. Super foggy.

IMG_7695

Slowly rising

Oh yeah friend chosen this tour because of their see-through roof.

IMG_7707-

Reached Te Anau. A small town with a beautiful church made entirely of glass. The bus moved along too fast. Couldn’t manage a photo.

For the whole trip, we have been drinking boiled water from our hotel kettle. When the tour guide said those waterfall water can be drink, we were so happy and immediately poured out our water.

DSC05216

I immersed my hand for so long under the water for this photo. I think my hand almost froze.

DSC05218

Tada~~~ No need to drink metallic taste water anymore. Happy happy~~

After a short while, I saw a lot of people looking out from the window. Then I realised they were all looking at these.

The end, the rest of the journey is a repeat of what we came from so I slept throughout the whole journey back. By the time we reached Queenstown it was all dark. We were dropped off at our hotel and quickly get changed for late night dinner.

Realised all shops close pretty early. It was about 9pm. We ended up having Kebab.
