Nothing has changed
Wednesday. 6.21.17 10:57 pm
So I'm back from the lovely country called New Zealand.......

To find that nothing has changed.. It probably got worse but nothing has changed and it is at this point suffocating me.

As boring as NZ is (as compared to Melbourne / Sydney), I don't have a life here. The boys here are annoying, patronising and jugemental.

Nothing has changed except me and that is incredibly sad

The secret ingredient is love
Thursday. 4.27.17 4:11 am
You know how people like to say that food tastes better when cooked with love? I'm starting to think that is true.

Why you may ask? Because my teas never tasted as good anymore. When I was on the lettuce farm down in Southbridge, New Zealand, my teas tastes good. Now that I'm in Auckland, I am drinking the same tea, the same brand, the same everything but it just absolutely does not taste as good.

It must have been love but it's over now. It must have been the love for the carefree life where you wake up, go to work, come back, cook and sleep with almost zero drama.

That must be it!

Or the fact that on the farm, our water comes from an underground spring but it must have been love.

My brain is in love
Thursday. 4.13.17 5:48 am
But I'm not in love.

It started with randomly having Jessica Ware's Say You Love Me playing in my head then it turned into Ed Sheeran's How Would You Feel and that song never left... It's been the entire week.

listening to: Ed Sheeran - How Would You Feel

Somehow if feels weird because I'm feeling all this emotions that I haven't felt for about 2 years and I would say that I don't have much triggering this that isn't in my head. There is one person whom I would think of when this happens but I haven't spoken to that person in months and I don't even know if I will ever see this person again.

It's so weird and as much as I don't know why or how to take this situation, I am glad it's not something sad that has materialised in my mind.

I thought I was Stuck
Wednesday. 4.5.17 5:16 am
but I suppose that was just a matter of perspective. I am not stuck now anymore and I have never been stuck, I just thought that I was. I suppose it has come to a point where I just stop fighting against the current and let life take me where it takes me.

I wish things would stabilise soon enough and I hope things will turn out for the best. As much as I would love to stay in this lovely country, if I have to go home in order to stay sane, I will.

I also think that one of my exes sort of told me that he wants me back last weekend.. but I'm not that person anymore. I've tried being with someone who wanted to travel all the time and I've tried being with someone who would never leave unless he really has to and I know that I need that balance, that reality break.

I think this is the first time I've ever spoken about the two of them in a public space. So, this is me, telling the world that I have had two when some people thought that I had none.

There are so many things happening that I cannot put up here without it sounding ominous. I wish I can but perhaps I will when things are more settled.

Till next time!

Pieces of home
Friday. 3.17.17 1:00 am
I've been homesick every week since I've got to Auckland and I'm very glad that I've got two pieces of home visit me this week.

I'm surprise of that he still felt like home though a different kind than that when we were together. I suppose it's just how comfortable you are with people.

Seeing my pink triangle all weekend and I love how all we will do is sit in her hotel room and do nothing <3

Getting Started
Monday. 2.27.17 3:54 am
A working holiday visa to New Zealand eh? How did you get it and for how long?

How to get this
For Malaysians

The visa application process opens around the 3rd week of January, you gotta check the NZ immigration website for the specific date at 8AM New Zealand time (means +13 GMT / 5AM Malaysian time). Also, there is only 1150 spots a year (check the immi website in case they change the quota!).

I heard that this year (2017), the website crashed when the applications opened and they had to postpone to a later date.

Everyone else in the world

I'm not entirely sure about the rest of you, check the NZ immigration website but... I know that Europeans get to apply all year long.

How long do I get to stay once I got the visa

Malaysians and Singaporeans - 6 months

Everyone else - 1 year (disclaimer: I haven't heard of anyone else who has a shorter period other than Malaysians and Singaporeans)

Can I extend my visa after the initial period is up?

Everyone (unless you are a Brit) gets to extend their WHV for another 3 months on the condition that they work on a farm/vineyard for 3 months. Check out the immigration website for the updated conditions.

Please note that the time you spent wwoofing (working for food and accommodation) on farms (regardless of the hours) will NOT be taken into account for this extension.

If you are British, you'll be able to get an extension for a year.. I don't know the conditions tho.


1) Do I need to show evidence that I have the minimum cash requirement when I enter NZ for the first time?

Not unless you are asked to produce the evidence.

2) I didn't manage to put in my application =((((

I would encourage you to check the immigration website again the next day for the next couple of weeks. Chances are there will be someone whom they have rejected and the application is open again to fill up the quota.

3) I've submitted my application (YAY!!!), how long will they take to get back to me?

If you are impatient, you can check your immigration account. You can see any changes to your account before they send you the email confirmation.

4) I've got my visa! Any advice on when to go?

Well... this is a tricky question. It all depends on:
- when you want to go (which season; please note that a huge amount of backpackers arrive in Dec/Jan, i.e. summer)
- what kind of jobs are you looking for (what fruits are in season when you want to arrive)
- depending on which island you want to start travelling from (South Island is generally colder than North Island)

5) Did you buy a one way ticket or a return ticket?

I bought a one way ticket. I even worked Australia into my plans (i.e. travel to a part of Aussie on the way there and another on the way back), might as well since it is kind of on the way to NZ. I flew from KUL to Perth to Auckland (it worked out to be around the same price unless you don't have a specific time you want to travel and are just looking at cheap tickets). You could also get an open return but I have no idea how that works =/

6) Did you travel solo or with a friend?

I travelled solo. I didn't plan much.. just where I wanted to stop first and then I worked from there.

7) Did you find work before or after you got there?

I started off wwoofing then I looked for possible jobs then. Some employers are alright with you applying for the jobs prior to you getting there but some requires you to be there before giving you the job, so it depends.
