Hah, yeah, this was due soo long ago.
Here are the pictures anyway.
Dont be confused by the chronology of the pictures though. This post includes the last 2 days spent in NZ, thus, night and day, and two flights.
I miss NZ. a lot.
We left this really nice place for christchurch on a plane (damn we should have drove back instead).
Surprisingly, the seats on the budget carrier was actually more comfortable than SIA's seats. hmmm
and where will you see an airport so close to the mountains.
i mean. look. its so epic.
runways arnt always perfectly level (even in singapores case.)
the view. man.
cool. Speed brakes are up, exposing the flaps for us to see. From here, you can see that the flap is essentially another wing.
The last day we spent walking about their streets. Somewhat doing some shopping, generally walking around alot.
Then we took some cable car up to somewhere, then that was pretty much it...
mmm its a sex shop.
i like this shot.
two fat indians.
yup. for those who dont already know. my sister is as weird as me.
Their tool shops are epic. Soo many tools. ahhhhh
this bus essentially shuttles around the whole town.
coke is really expensive elsewhere. even in japan its ex.
their really cool looking bus terminal waiting area.
yeah, we were waiting for the next cable car to come when this came down. hahah.
uber cold up there. We were essentially at the same level as the clouds (the clouds were bit low that day.
Park and save fuel. Duh.
taken in their main airport.
clouds were really low that day.
the NZ coastline. awww.
We were creating a really long contrail on the flight back. Contrails are trails of ice crystals formed when the water vapour created during combustion in the aircraft engine meets the cold air and freezes.
You can see how much distortion the aircraft window affects the picture.
looks so clean here.
i like how blue the sky was.
can see how much the wings on the a380 bends.
quite a rare sight.
Duty Free shopping.
APU exhaust. This is the exhaust of the auxiliary power unit of the aircraft. This unit powers the plane when its engines are not powered on.
The immigration hall of t3. Very nice.
Yay. Finally. finished this series. Now back to homework.

Hah, yeah, this was due soo long ago.
If you have watched V for vendetta, this line would be quite familiar.
"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V."
Or to refresh your memory...
Anyway, Perry did a translation of it to Understandable english.
It took him 3 hours to do it.
Read it here.
