Book Reading - Kiwi Working Holiday

What a rainy morning. We woke up early for company's Bukit Cahaya trip but when reaching in Uptown Damansara to meet up with friends, we received a bad news that the event was canceled due to the rain, so we dismissed.

Well, what to do in this early morning? Continue to sleep? So I picked up one of the books which I borrowed from Zing few weeks ago.

The author: Diana Zhan Jing Qi(79), from Kaoshiung, Taiwan. It first published in Dec 2006. She applied for a 6-month working holiday in NZ, then this book was written:

I prefer to read the books with many colourful pictures.

She went for the job interviews and worked as hotel housekeeper, working in apple factory and grape farm. Each job cannot work more than 3 months, that's why she'd to change different jobs.

Sometimes there were free trips from helicopter flights or cruises for staff working in hotel, so she managed to save some money and travel for free. She even had a free trip to the scene of The Lord of The Rings. She was scared of skydive but insisted to open her eyes.

The quality on apple selection: Wrong color or Not Coloured, White Stuff, Sunburn, Bruise, Over Mature:

During her trip in NZ, she had taken a lot of interesting photos. How lucky that she took part in TNT Magazine photography contest, her photos were published.

The back cover of the book:

Still reading in progress...... Will return once finished :)
