probinsya talaga ang new zealand.
mas madaming sheep kesa sa tao don.
pero maganda naman siya kasi lush ang greeneries and madaming extreme sports na ginagawa dito.

tahimik kasi doon and maaga nagco-close ang mga establishments. maliit lang ang downtown proper parang isang straight na line lang.

visited NZ, Auckland

its nice if you want to sight see, pero nothing much to do.
Puro greens, pero i find it very boring, malls are not that great the shops close early.

For me its a country i want to visit but would not go back again.

We stayed at Langham hotel, good breakfast choices and one waitress is a Filipina. Our tour group is odd numbers, my group triple sharing was upgraded to suite room. The toiletries in Suite room is sosyal, Molton Brown.

The people of NZ are nice and accomodating especially the locals na me ethnic decent, they look like hawaiian polynesian, unlike Australia they are quite snooty
 
i remember we went to see the dead volcano crater, aquarium, glow worm cave, and dinner NZ rotating tower, we went island trip visit the vineyards and olive plantation (this i enjoyed others are so so lang)

glow worm cave, unique experience pero i find it not worth the trip, morning til afternoon kame nagtravel, then upon reaching the cave 5-10mins lang na little boat ride to see the glow worms. all of us in the tour, just slept sa bus to and fro.

I find outstanding are the produce:
food they have a variety of meats you will be served a lot of lambs, venison(rabbit) and deer meat.

Salmons and scallops are fresh seems very common

ice cream the best, very creamy.  best seller nila is hokey pokey flavor - vanilla ice cream with honeycomb crunch bits

cheese dami variety, but if you plan to take home you need to pack it well checkin luggage, no handcarry otherwise it will not pass sa Sydney airport on your connect flight back.  very strict

Pasalubong:
cadbury chocolates are dirt cheap, a lot of variety
whittaker kiwi chocolate love love it
manuka honey
lanolin lotion, by product from sheep a good moisturizer

fun fact kiwi fruit grows in vines :)

Really, its so easy to apply for migration to NZ but the problem lies when you are already there. Problem? Lack or even absence of employment opportunities for migrants. The country is badly hit with recession. Closing down of businesses, retrenchment etc is happening there. Basically, NZ is classified as an agricultural country. Majority of the companies there only employ less than 10 people as they are just branches of neighboring countries like Australia. For business professionals, it is not the country for you. But for health, agricultural and teaching professionals, this may be the country for you. Sadly, the business industry there leaves a lot to be desired. Makati is much, much more bustling. It's the Asian people who dominates the small retail business arena.

But there is no doubt that the country is a healthy place to live in, what with the lush greeneries, no pollution, picturesque landscape etc. Standard of living is quite high. Yes, you will be able to live in their minimum pay but its just enough for living expenses. For one, rental is paid on a weekly basis.

For those who want to migrate, I suggest you think really hard and weigh your options. For one, if you are getting work to resident visa, its like banging your head to the wall. Why? They have this citizen first policy. Meaning, NZ citizens and Permanent Residents are given priority in employment. An employer will have to prove to their Dept of Labor that no citizen or resident is qualified for the position before they can accept a migrant. And Kiwis are "tamad", don't like this kind of hassle so they will not put themselves in this position. Then a lot of companies there are retrenching, and guess who is the first to be terminated? Yes, migrants.

There were a lot of debates that NZ migration is like a scam. There were uprising already from the migrants there for the govt  to stop accepting migrant applicants as they can't provide jobs for them. It's like, it is the migrants who are keeping their business scene alive. Migrants (esp Chinese and Koreans) bring in the money they saved from their own country and spend it there to settle down.

For those who have plans, please think it over.
