WANAKA, DO I HAVE A LUCK HERE?
After feeling nervous staying in Christchurch due to hundreds of aftershock, I travel down to Wanaka, a small ski town down in the state of Otago.Other reason I came to Wanaka also because my friend Yann told me he got a work, commercial cleaning. But the job will start when the ski season hit the town.
Hundreds of WHV (Working Holiday Visa) maker waiting for the ski season to get a job around here. Majority are white/european WHV maker. Very few Asian, just an asian who was on holiday here. Wanaka, do I have a luck here among the blondie and the whity? I filled up the form for the cleaning position where Yann got the job from.I thought that I could get a job since I got experience in house keeping and cleaning job.

QUEENSTOWN WINTER FESTIVAL 2011I decided to 'hitch hike' to Queenstown. An engish man, work as a joiner pick me up. He was on the way to do some shopping in Queenstown. He almost crash because he was busy talking and looking at me. That was the sign baby!
I'm glad with the information given by Yann to hitch hike near the junction so and so. The short cut to Queenstown through Crown Range.

I GOT A JOB IN BLENHEIM
No job here and there. Just one place I'm sure I will get a job anytime, Blenheim. I went there and get a job in vineyard from Abby. So we work together under the same contractor. Freezing to death working outdoor in winter from 7am-5.30am. Two layer of lagging, jeans; three layer of socks; two layer of long sleeve shirts and two layer of gloves.
|The best thing about working outdoor is you get close encounter with animals like horses and sheeps.|

Doing odd job like this has given me a lesson for life and a good value of experience. An open heart to understand other people situation.
