Matamata was the first town we visited after we left Auckland for the adventure. We were here because of LOTR, this Saturday afternoon was very peaceful & nice, with the welcoming winds.... We booked the tickets at i-Site and heading to McDonald to check out the menu (coz normally they've got some stuff that M'sia doesn't sell :P).
The i-Site also use 'LOTR' as main theme...
Less tourists means we can do this self photo snapping without being blocked/brought trouble to others...
Cool right? This is the bus that drove us to the 500 acre private farm where they build the hobbiton house at a corner of it...

Well we were not allow to share out any of the photos taken from hobbiton farm site, since they are making the prequel of LOTR. Breach of rules will kena sue maximum and they won't be able to bring tours in as well. Personally I think it is worth to explore this place as you really see no sign of 21st century, no lamp posts, no paved road, no wire...only green...
Whoever wanna see those pictures gotto come find me yam cha lo :P
After the hobbiton farm tour there was this sheep shaving show!
I think this sheep already 'immune' so he was pretty cooperative :P
These 4 little sheeps are the cutest!
Am I not cute? :P
