Travel to New Zealand

New Zealand

New Zealand is known in the native Maori language as Aotearoa, often translated as The land of the long white cloud.

New Zealand is a country of stunning and diverse natural beauty: Soaring mountain peaks, fiords, lakes, rivers, and active volcanic features. The islands are inhabited many species of unique fauna, including the elusive kiwi, which has become the national symbol.

The Maori culture continues to play an important part in everyday New Zealand life, and there are abundant opportunities for the visitor to understand and experience the history and the present day form of Maori life.

The country is sparsely populated, but easily accessible. New Zealand has modern visitor facilities, and developed transportation networks. New Zealand often adds an adventure twist to nature, and is the home of jetboating through shallow gorges, and bungy jumping off anything high enough to give a thrill.

Paddy's Markey, Sydney

When you are in Sydney, do not left out Paddy's market. I bought a lot of souvenirs and gifts there with cheap price. LOL

Paddy's Markets is a commercial enterprise that has two large markets in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Paddy's markets are located in Haymarket and Flemington and specialise in the sale of fruit, vegetables, fish, clothes and giftware.

Flemington Paddy's is the larger site and specialises in fruit and vegetable sales. The market is the primary delivery service of these products for Sydney. The market has a wholesale sales section that caters to larger business and general sales to the public. The market is the central marketplace for Sydneys farmers to sell their products. Paddy's Flemington also has Sydney Central Fresh-Cut Flower Market, that is the central provider of flowers to Sydney's florists. On weekends, the markets also feature clothes, gifts and souvenirs. There is also a second hand market, where vendors set-up a sales stand selling a range of second-hand goods.

The Haymarket Paddy's is located in the 'Market City' site, beside Chinatown and is more like a traditional flea market, specialising in cheap imported clothes, giftware and also has a small section for fruit, vegetables and seafood. Paddy's Haymarket also sells souvenirs which makes it popular with tourists. Market City features these markets along with The Peak apartment building and a modern shopping centre containing a food court, restaurants, boutiques, specialty shops and a cinema complex.

There were street performance outside Paddy's market on the day we visit. I've snap some photos. It was amazing!

Australia landmark - The Sydney Opera House, a must-visit during Sydney trip.

AirAsia Fly More! Now 3x daily to Hong Kong

Cheap flight tickets to Hong Kong! I've just bought 4 tickets to Hong Kong for April 2010. My FIL, MIL, hubby and me will go together! A holiday for our family!

I've got cheap air tickets, only RM361 return per person including airport tax, 15kg luggage & seat allocation. It will be a 5 days 4 nights tour.

After discussed with hubby, we decide not to go Disneyland since it's quite similar to Gold Coast Movie World. But a visit to Hong Kong without visiting to Disneyland okay or not? Anyway, it's still early for planning, we have 4 month's time to decide!
