Rotorua - Day 2

We started our day as early as 8 am NZ time. Thats 3 AM for MY .Dahlia dengan mamai-mamai pun dipaksa bangun ..alhamdulillah she kept her 'coolness'..hehehe..siap terlompat-lompat tersengih... tanda gembira atau protes? Wallahualam..hehe..kids..I prepared a little breakfast sekadar mengalas perut then off we go!!!

So what was on our itenerary on this day?
1. Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland
2. Taupo Bungy

Wai-O-Tapu wonderland and our motel was hardly 30 mins drive..maybe due to the highways yang kosong..

No smoking ok..

At the early stage of the hike ;) laju sahaje semuanya...

At the Lady Knox Geyser 


The famous Lady Knox Geyser. It is named after Lady Constance Knox, the second daughter of Uchter Know, 15th Governor of New Zealand katanya. The geyser erupts up to 20.0 meter everyday at 10:15 am. Pretty amazing bukan? I cound not quite hear what was the facilitator said about some native people with thier sabun basuh baju etc..I was distracted by Dahlia yang asyik melayan a franch boy main tanah... *urhg*

If you miss this hour of time, but still wanna witness the eruption, you have to come back again for another day..snd of course..you have to pay for another set of entrance fees...


There are 25 check points at this Wonderland, 3 types of Walk all together.


Bau kentut Dahlia sulfur teramat lah kuat at this Artist's Pallate...boleh naik pening kepada sesiapa yang tidak tahan.


Artist's Pallate . The thermal at Yellowstone National Park, US is even more impressive..
Try google on it. 


Sekali pandang at those steam memang terasa kagum..tetapi bila diperhati dengan lebih dekat at the source...scary! Menggelegak tanah-tanah (mud) di situ..*insaf sangat mengenangkan gambaran neraka*


The boiling mud...*busuk*


This was almost noon..on our way to the exit...


Seriau berjalan with Dahlia di sini..takut terhumban in that hot water..


I did not even dare to touch the rocks with those steam coming out.....takut..

Ok we are done at the Wai-O-Tapu...

Spent about 2 hours the most at this Wonderland and we headed terus ke Taupo. From Rotorua to Taupo was about an hour drive. Dahlia and I seperti biasa..pantang sahaja masuk kereta,kami sure tertidur..sekarang beru terasa kesal kerana terlepas untuk menikmati view di sana... I was too tired during the flights... :(

Bungy time!!!A few meters away from the office, I sudah terasa sangat excited...tudung pun tersenget-senget..(I duduk belakang, badan tu cepat sangat ke hadapan ..tudung tersangkut at dahlia's car seat ..excited lah katakan...)...Setelah meninjau-ninjau,hati bertambah excited menahan sabar...Selesai menimbang berat badan,kami pun duduk menunggu giliran....(sekali 59 kg!!! - ingat kan masih 54kg!!perasan ringan!!)



...Payment made, tokens given pup pap pup pap..dengan patient sekali kami menunggu giliran...We were reluctant to purchase the video shot by the company, tetapi after much of discussion, we decided to beli juga....I showed this video of me before I put it up in here...Officemate kata I lompat macam katak...ye ke?



Berderau darah bukan? berderau lagi darah I tatkala berada at the jumping edge. Berdebar jantung mengalahkan debaran malam pertama ;p .. I almost chicken out ...tetapi I saw something at the office just now that made me jump juga by hook or by crook...it says...

"No Refund"

Hehehe..Duit punya pasal..takut Helmi marah sebab tidak lompat, I memberani kan diri juga akhirnya...sejuk dan berpeluh tapak tangan dan tapak kaki...BUT IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!

Pergi bertiga..jadinya the awesomeness pun harus juga bertiga bukan? But see what amused Dahlia the most...no not the bungy,she is too short for the jump ... ;p  hehehhe...




After this adrenalin activity ..off we went to the next place..The Huka Falls...Again, tidak jauh daripada Taupo Bungy ni. *thanks to miss Garmin

Huka Falls is  famous with its high water current. And its beauty too of course ;)

Just look at the current..water rafting pasti seronok ni!! (pic from our camera)


Googled for a more professional picture...see those tiny little people..We were there ;)
