Ari does New Zealand…

Hey there peeps…


Let me tell you.. It’s bloody cold there. Sunset was around 5.30pm and it was cloudy and it did rain sometimes.. 


What am I talking about..? Well, I was in Auckland with a few friends.. We decided to drive around and snap some pictures. Pretty cool idea rite? Ok..ok.. Yes. I know we dont have to be a rocket scientist to know that the scenery in New Zealand is breath taking. But.. because I dont want to be like any other Tom, Dick and Harry that shoots landscapes (actually.. in all honesty, I cant shoot landscapes.. even if I copy it from a postcard also it wont work.. sad right??), I’ve decided to shoot what I saw as we drove along heading south from Auckland.


Ok.. So, I was the designated driver. We drove for over 800km in 2 days. Massive. And we did take some short stops along the way for smoke break laa.. wee wee break laa.. camwhore break laa.. and so on and so forth.. but, the most cool stop we did was when one of my friends wanted to take pictures with the cows in NZ. I was like.. Ok. Lets pose with them cows.. So.. after we got off our car, I went straight to chatting them up. As you know, before we shoot models, we need to make them comfortable kan..kan..


Ari: Hey Cows..

Cow: Moo.. (Yo man.. what’s up..? Havent seen cows before..?)

Ari: Of course seen before.. but just asking if you guys wanna pose for my Nikon? I can make you and your friends famous…

Cow: Moo..moo.. (Yeah.. Sure thing buddy..)  



So.. after my brief conversation with them and a couple of ciggies later.. we drove off heading further south. 

After several “beep beep” warning from the GPS saying that I was 4 km/h over the speed limit, we stopped again. This time was to snap some pictures. Nice scenery but I’ve decided to post this picture of my friend. I kinda like it.

Nice kan? Thanks for the compliments peeps.. 

Oh please.. enough flattery.. You guys and gals are making me blush laa praising me too much.. Hahahahahaa…


Anyway.. I’ll continue my story laa ok.. So, basically, we went to Huka Falls, Lake Taupo, and this beach called.. called what eh? I forgot laa.. The name sounds like.. Wakarinauo Beach or something like that.. Later I check the map again.. So please dont scold me if I got it wrong.. not my fault.. 

Anyway, here’s what I got from the beach.. it was nice.. the sunset and all.. Wanna see?


Of course you wanna see… Coz it’s nice 🙂




The life of the people there seems very laid back. Relaxed. I’m sure their stress levels are low compared to say.. my hometown in Manhattan.. LOL..


At the end of the day.. After driving for 2 days and seeing part of New Zealand, I’ve concluded that it is indeed a nice place to visit. If only we had more time there it would’ve been better. But.. I’m not gonna complain.. I was happy to even be there.. 


Ok lah people.. I think I’m gonna catch some zzz soon.. I hope you’ve enjoyed this very educational and intellectual story coupled with superbly taken photos but before i end this.. as usual.. I’m gonna include one last picture. This is the kind of picture you’d want on your desk top. Super Nice. You can email me and buy this picture and I’ll sign it for you plus I’ll also include a hemsem picture of me as a bonus. Hahahaaa… Nite peeps..

And for the Daddys that’s reading this.. Happy Fathers’ Day..
