68 : New Zealand

It's been a while since i was here. Alhamdulillah, life is good. New Zealand has been treating me well since day 1 :)

I am currently in Roxburgh, working in a packhouse somewhere in Ettrick. Oh, I am under Working Holiday Scheme for those who doesnt have any idea on what am I doing here hehe. The cherry season just started earlier this month and will continue maybe until mid or end January.

Roxburgh is a small town in Central Otago, somewhere in  between Queenstown and Dunedin. When I said it is small, yes. It is a very small town with a population less than 1000 people. I am staying in The Commercial Backpackers and I think this place is the biggest building ever exist in this little town. It might be  small but it feels like home.

Home for the time being

Before Roxburgh, I was doing work exchange (work for accommodation) in a hostel in Dunedin for about a month. IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST THING EVER HAPPENED TO ME! But I'll write about it in the next post (which I dont know when hehe)

Alhamdulillah life is good here. I do miss home sometimes, but I am loving my life here. Now, I am in torn whether to extend my visa or not. There's some pros and cons but i think i'll pass it for the time being. (typical Hazirah is typical)

I really want to write more about this but i dont know what and how. If you guys are interested in applying for Working Holiday Scheme, the application for Malaysian will be opened on 22nd of January 2014 at 5.00am (10.00am NZ time). You have to be quick since last year all 1150 places were gone in 30mins. You can check all the requirements and register at New Zealand Immigration website starting from now. Shoot me a mail at miss(dot)kakashi[at]yahoo(dot)com if you have any questions about this WHS and i'll try my best to answer you (whenever I got time for that lah okay). No, I dont bite people. Heh.
