奥克兰的种种 Auckland~Auckland

怀念下在奥克兰的种种。。。第一天我们可在城里荡足一天呢!呵呵呵。。。这里亚裔可多着,记得我们3个坐在巴士站遥望对面的巴士站时,哪里也都是亚裔在等巴士,反而感觉不太像在国外。。。
Thanks to my dear friend, we've spend few days in Auckland. We walked around the city for the very first day until my friend off duty. Hehe, there are pretty lots of asian in Auckland, there was a time 3 of us sat at the bus stop and opposite the road another bus stop, also another few asians waiting for bus. Hehe, sometimes we don't really felt as if I was at overseas...
一个清新宁静的早晨
A fresh and peaceful morning at the dock
这广告牌超有创意
A very creative advertisement...hahahahah
不同体质的‘兄弟’。。。。
Abang adik...
这是维多利亚街,还以为这里会很热闹,结果刚好相反,冷清的还以为自己走错街道呢。
This is Victoria Street, at first I thought it would be very lively and has lots of shops & souvenirs and fruits...but, there were only few shops open and it is seriously very very quiet over here... nothing much to explore... 
码头建筑,我用它来做地标认路(不过也不太学要认啦因为朋友会代劳。。。哈哈哈)
Auckland Ferry Building. I used this as landmark to remember the direction.... but mostly is my friend who help identify the way lah... hahahahaha
这是。。。中文不知道叫什么,就把它译成‘航天城’吧。里头有赌场哦,看看右图,有高空玩意儿,环着那圈圈走,或从上面‘滑’下来(我觉得像跳楼多一点)。在这里只看没有参与。。。很贵啦,也很恐怖下咯。
This is the famous SkyCity. There is Casino, restaurant etc etc... take a look at the right picture, you can walk at the edge or choose to 'slide' down (ok to me more like jump down/suicide) from the top... Didn't do any of this here, kind of costly and scary lah.
游了一轮巴士车河之后我们就荡过去博物馆了。。。
After the bus tour we decided to look for the museum as well...
博物馆前的一片青青草原。。。。好舒服。。。
The green green grass in front of the Museum...felt so comfy with the winds blowing along...
走过其中一条街道时有缘看到这突然‘弹’起来的‘笨猪’。。。
Walking along the street suddenly saw this 'bungy' being 'shoot' into the sky...
等待晚餐的同时,也欣赏了这漂亮的夜景。。。
A very nice night scenery along the bridge while awaiting our nice dinner...
终于吃了一餐‘正餐’。味道非常不错,餐厅环境也好。
I guess this is our most official and fine dinner in NZ. Hehehe.. the taste of the food & ambience of the restaurant is really good.
Kiwano. 来到人家的地头当然要试试本土食物。结果我们买了这个连一些当地人都没吃过的Kiwano回去(我朋友的老婆说看样子就觉得它不怎么所以她没想过要吃,哈哈哈。。。)。我是觉得不那么好吃啦,里面就好像黄瓜的种子那样咯,没有标签上写的‘像柠檬和香蕉的味道’
Must try some local stuff mah right? Hehe, so we bought this Kiwano back (which my friend's wife also never taste before, she said it doesn't looks tasty so many of them didn't even think of trying it out...hahaa). So we all had our first experience with this Kiwano. Errr... taste so so to me leh, like the cucumber seeds ==|| Couldn't really taste what the label said 'taste like lemon & banana'....
朋友安排我们在这里吃‘早午餐’顺道欣赏下葡萄园,想的很周到。。。感动!
Friend brought us branch here so that we can take a look at the vineyard as well...so nice of them :)
也参观了卖蜂蜜的地方。然后就来到这个馬卡達姆堅果园。地方不大但是有家小小餐厅哦!
We've also visited the places that sell honey. Then adjourned to this Macadamia farm, its not huge the farm but there is a small restaurant here oh :)
然后就沿着山路来到这海边。 感觉很奇怪哦,途中怎么都不觉得是往海边的路行驶。。。呵呵呵
And then... we were crossing all the hill road to reach this Bethells Beach! Funny huh? :P
即使是近冬天,还是有蛮多人带着家眷和狗狗来这里跑跑得。。。
Even though it was almost winter, there were still quite some people bringing families & doggy coming over...
非常细柔的黑沙滩。。。
A very soft black sand...
我的朋友啊,总是给我一种‘神仙眷侣’的感觉,相处得非常融洽。感觉朋友当中只有两对夫妻有这样的相处方式。。。羡慕,也祝福你们!谢谢你们的热情招待!
This couple friend always give me a 'fairy couple' feel, the way they interact, the respect and understanding is really rare nowadays.  Thanks for the trip dude!

还有还有,我们还‘打机’(玩WII)呢!哈哈哈。。。又闹又笑得还好没有被邻居投诉!爽!
Oh Oh, we also played VII in my friend's house and luckily didn't get complaint from neighbour of the noise we made. Hahahahahaha

AliVe said...

我对维多利亚街蛮好奇的,应该藏着一些故事吧!

Casendra said...

Alive, 那个维多利亚街啊。。。我也不太清楚,网页上也没特别介绍。可能因为澳洲的victoria market让我们对nz的维多利亚街有不一样的期望吧?

yee said...

喔喜歡你的旅程,好自由悠閒,想比是個值得再去的地方。你呈獻遊記的方式也很好,讓nz成為一個很多人想去的地方。

Casendra said...

仪,绝对值得再去!可是有些人可能会觉得闷咯。谢谢认同,其实我觉得照片可以带出很多讯息,我的形容词有限,所以拼命放照片,哈哈哈哈

khengsiong said...

Bungy jumping in the city!??

The museum looks great. Did you enter it?

Casendra said...

Kheng Siong, yeap, right in the city itself... probably it's cater for tourist... nope we didn't enter the musuem, just walk around it only...
