WW: Auckland Harbour in the morning

Hi everyone..

I have been coming back to Auckland for more meetings and activities. In New Zealand, We have the biggest concentration of Indonesian diaspora here in the city so that we always have something going on here.

This time, I have some meetings with counterparts at the University of Auckland and Auckland University of Technology. Moreover, we had the celebration of Indonesian Language and Literature in Auckland as well, so that our team come back here ready for a lot of engagements.

In one of the mornings, we managed to explore the harbour part as we are looking for hearty breakfast. 


The waterfront in Auckland is quite big. It also houses the Museum of Maritime. I haven’t got a chance to check out the museum but hopefully next time I will have ample time to do so.




I strolled around the Princes Wharf, where you can see Hilton Hotel and many restaurants, as well as the Eastern Viaduct and Viaduct Harbour. 


We had our breakfast in this cute restaurant called Giraffe around the area.


I also managed to get some videos for my Youtube channel about this area. Check it out!


So do you like Auckland harbour area?

Such a lovely waterfront and I hope I can go back and explore more in this area.

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the links.


WW: Snorkeling Session at Rarotonga, the Cook Islands


I was super lucky to get a chance to come and visit Rarotonga, the capital city of the Cook Islands. The visit was back in May 2022 but I still haven't shared my wonderful experience there.


We came for the Credentials procession of Ambassador Fientje M. Suebu and we had series of meetings with the Prime Minister as well as the members of his cabinet. We also managed to see the beauty of Rarotonga and met our Indonesian brothers and sisters.

In one of the days, we visited the Rarotongan beach and had a snorkeling session there. I was super excited although it was cloudy and drizzling. I didn't manage to try diving here but I hope I can come back here again sometimes.



Here are some the photos I took while enjoying Rarotonga.

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!

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

Kia Ora,

Another week in June has gone by and I have been enjoying the wintery New Zealand as best as I can.

The kids are having great times at school, embracing the new routine and expanding their friendship with the local. We are trying to learn the local language of Maori and it’s certainly exciting. It is not that easy but I believe if we keep trying and learning it on daily basis, we can definitely master it. Can’t wait!



Now, don’t hesitate to join us at Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends. We certainly have lots of party links for you to see and enjoy! Nga mihi!
