nice double weekends
Weekend 1 : (29-31 August 2009)
I went to Wellington with sharina and aysha. Stayed at Ida’s room for 3 nights. thanks so much to Ida for the hospitality 🙂 You are welcome to Palmy, anytime u want!
Went to Amal Palestine Roadshow. Really glad to hear the speech from Dr Zinur Rashid, about the history of Palestin and his experience travelling to Palestine. Learn so many new things about the history, real life of Palestine and the politics between hamas and fatah. Credit to the organizer and all people who involved in this roadshow. We made a small poster, a message to the world:
The next day, we joined the Lot of The Ring tour. Went to the best 7 locations in both North & South of Wellington. Well, photos can describe more than words :
Weekend 2: 5-6 Sept 2009
Adiba from Auckland came to Palmy, welcome to Palmy my friend~
So, we planned a last minute trip –> went to Ashhurst. Noha & Sharina joined the club. heeee. So, what did we do? Went to the Songbird garden, springgrove farm and wind farm. We really enjoyed the trip!!
From the website, ” Songbird gardens are mystical, magical and full of surprises. Tranquil, idyllic and filled with birds. In Spring there are daffodils everywhere, a bluebell wood, and rhodendrons and camellias producing glorious displays”
YES it true, it is a beautiful garden. Very nice to hear the song of birds, they were chirping everywhere. plus, a stunning view up from the hill. There is a small beautiful, unique and romantic cottage, $110 per night. It is a very calm and peaceful place. I wish my parents were there too. here are some photos:
Hands on experience playing and feeding with sheeps, goats, chincillas, deer, highland steers, llama, pony, donkeys, cats and dogs, ostrich and many moreeee. Yeah, and pigs too.. glad the pigs are in the cage, heh heh heh. Fantastic view is a bonus!
Again, photos photos photos :
Te Apiti Windfarm:
It is the Meridian Energy’s first NZ wind farm. The wind generates energy; 1 of the energy sources in NZ.
Okay, back to reality, time for assignment. bye for now
