Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World and Friends




Kia ora and welcome back!

I have been enjoying lovely Wellington, with some sunny and warm days.

We were super happy as well as we got the chance to actually travel to Rotorua, one of the famous destinations in New Zealand. I really love the fact that we have the long weekend so I can take my family altogether. So we manage to visit Rotorua Skyline, Polynesia Spa, Te Puia Maori Center, and the Hobbiton, the movie set for Lord of the Rings and the Hobbits trilogy! It's just like a dream come true for me and my hubby,  huge fans of Sir Peter Jackson's amazing works. My kids definitely enjoy the trip as well and we even have plans to come back again here as 3 days is definitely not enough.

The kids are enjoying their schools as well and soon will have a spring break. So this week, we will be heading to Auckland and explore the city as well as meet some friends. Super excited indeed.

WW: Hatupatu Scenic Lookout, Lake Rotorua, New Zealand

Hatupatu Scenic Lookout, Rotorua, New Zealand

Hi everyone..

Hope all is well and I am enjoying the beautiful weather in Wellington!
This time, I would like to share the photos of our recent trip to Rororua, one of the most favorite destination in Aotearoa, New Zealand. it is famous for its geothermal bath, amazing landscape and fun outdoor activity centers.

Let's stop by at Hatupatu Scenic Lookout, Rotorua, New Zealand. Here we can enjoy the calming scenery of Lake Rotorua. As you can see, the lake is unique with two distinct colors because it is sulphuric. It comes with distinct aroma as well but it's still manageable, at least for me.

We also stopped by at Rotorua Museum. The architecture is so beautiful but it is temporarily closed for strengthening and renovation. 



At Hatupatu Scenic Lookout, Rotorua, we can also see the Lakeland Queen Cruise Boat, which I guess is no longer operating, at least for now. Here are some photos we took around the area and will be more than happy to get back to you with more details. Till then, take care!

WW : Enjoying Lake Taupo, New Zealand


Hi everyone..

Welcome back and I have to admit that I haven't shared many of my trips around Aotearoa New Zealand. Last May, we visited New Plymouth and Taupo. 

You can read some stories about it here: Escapade to New Plymouth and Lake Taupo (Part 1) and the Three Sisters and Elephant Rocks.

So now, let me take you around Lake Taupo and the city center.

We stayed in one of the hotels with the access to the lake and in the following day, we strolled around the city before heading back to Wellington. There's a city sign that becomes tourists' favourite and since it's by the lake, many stop by for a while. As you can see up there, the sign is pretty much popular.

We also visited Huka Falls and saw its amazing falls and the bush walk around it. The Falls is not that high but it's surely refreshing to see the sceneries and feel the mist from the falls.

 Before that, we also enjoyed the beautiful sceneries along the way from New Plymouth to Lake Taupo.

We then had a lovely lunch in the shrimp farm in the area and tried the Huka Falls Jet! Oh my, it was so much fun indeed! The shrimps we tried there were so fresh! Other food from the menus are also yummy. It's a bit pricey but I guess that's the price you have to pay for delicious, fresh-from-the-farm food.




On our way to Taupo, we took the forgotten highway, which actually lovely and beautiful, although it's longer route than the new highway. We took pictures in the middle of the route as it was only us LOL. It was quite an experience.





So, all in all, we truly enjoy Lake Taupo and the surrounding areas. Hopefully we can explore more and more places in Aotearoa.

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends



Hi everyone..

Hope you enjoy July wherever you are. We are still bombarded by the strong wind, heavy downpour, and extreme weather here in Aotearoa. But I guess many experience horrible weather and extreme heat waves as well in different corners of the world. Climate change is no jokes and I hope we all understand that we have to take serious actions to address its adverse impacts and we have to start it from ourselves and start it now. 

I also notice that COVID-19 is spiking up again in many countries including in New Zealand. We have friends at the office who get infected by it and all of us is taking the rapid test again. Good thing the result for me is negative and I have been taking extra cautious measures to protect my family and I. Masks are frequently used and we also take extra vitamins and supplement. Hope we all can stay healthy and happy!

And for sure, we would love to go back on the road and explore the beauty of New Zealand again. Wish us luck!
