Auckland, NZ - First Day

This is my second trip to New Zealand. The last trip was 4 years ago. Left Brunei at 11.15am and got in to Auckland at 3:30am (Auckland Time) which is 5 hrs ahead of Brunei.

When I was in Brunei airport, I have to wait for almost 45 mins just to get my ticket approved. What happen is the seat were fully booked and my name wasn't on the list! I was so furious and speechless wondering how this thing can happen! The lady at the counter seems to be a new staff as she keep on asking her colleague sitting next to her. After a long wait, I finally got a boarding pass. Got in the plane, and first time in my life, I was given the seat which located at the end of the plane. When I say end of the plane, I mean the last row and behind me was the toilet! It was quite annoying to have people passing by me and the disgusting bit is when you can hear then flushing the toilet...Uuuurrrgggghhhhhh.... Ah well..the good thing is that I don't have to walk so far for the toilet.

Got in to Auckland at 3:30am and it took about 30mins by taxi to the motel i'm staying. As I enter my room, I was quite amazed with what they have in the room. Look at the picture below and you will know why.





This morning I have a wander around. I walk from the motel to Newmarket which took about 1 hr walk. I love walking and with the weather now which is cool that make me enjoy the walk more. Didn't get anything but manage to visit the War Memorial Museum and took some photos.

Will update my second day in Auckland tomorrow...
