Well well well, the invitation to join the trip was really last minute at close to midnight of 30th December. My first spontaneous Road trip starts at 8am on the eve of new year.
Before departing, I had a big breakfast at The Coffee Club.
Finally starting the journey at 9am for 3 hours straight to Wairakei to stop and rest for around 20 minutes.
Lemonade fizz for the rest of the journey!
Then we went to Mission Winery to have wine tasting.
Once everyone settles in their own chosen rooms - we proceed to prepare dinner! The girls cooked with stove and oven while the guys grill and BBQ outside.
Beer times with many different fun drinking games. Games that test your mind yet you are getting drunk along the way.
After a few hours of playing, countdown to 1st January of 2017 begins! Champagne pops!
She's so strong to carry him =P
Spicy ramen for supper!
Second day - Road trip to Rotorua
|Most people take their wedding photo here. XD|
On our way there, my friend went over the speed limit while overtaking cars - so the police car was chasing us and flag the car down. Summons was issued and demerit - 175 NZD. The officer is friendly but also quite strict. 123 km/h -speeding due to the speed limit on motorways is 100km/h. The lesson learnt is to follow the law strictly because later on .. I also got fined for speeding. TwT
After another few hours, we reached Rotorua and have lunch/dinner at Chong Qing restaurant. I like the food there because it's authentic chinese food. xD
My team lost the beer pong game T_T - had to drink all the beer
Christmas tree still here
That's how my trip became epic all of a sudden. Till next time. Happy Chinese New Year !
