Auckland Airport...

"Every story has an end.." so does this KiWiLand journal, here comes the last chapter;-)

MH130 AKL-KUL @ 2:15pm that's our flight! *11:10 to 2:15 errmm...a long wait indeed*

The Auckland Airport locally known as Mangere Airport about 21km from the city centre & apparently its the largest and busiest airport in NZ.

eh eh..2bags + ONE MORE bag *wink*
"Always Come Prepared" hahaha

Check-In counter still CLOSED.  Too darn early...^-^

...stepped outside to get some fresh air

Toyota Prius Hybrid - Airport Taxi okayyy!!:)))

Such a pleasant weather...

Excellent! At least I can just chillax for 2hours....

note to Mr. Photographer: adjust ur cam setting please, a bit too bright hearyh!!!

Yup this is much better...Cappuccino for ME & Caffè Latte for HIM

Retro feel...;-)

Owh..of coz no FREE WiFi outside the airport but you can actually pay to access a WiFi hotspot there. Bored, Nothing To Do..then what else!  "Vlogging":-))))

*oops...I meant to say check-in counter instead of ticket counter*

Wokey, done with the Vlog.  Another one hour to hang around at the terminal.  Thanks to Samsung for providing the Free WiFi booth in the airport lobby area though limited to 2 desktops only BUT...

I think the facility is more for those who urgently need to check info on hotels, car rental, flights
or anything important related to their trips  
rather than....

FB-ing...this absolutely can wait!

CNY banners are everywhere, even more at Sky City with lanterns..
NZ in Gong Xi Fa Cai mode;-)

SurfNZ kiosk @ departure hall,  $10 (NZD) for 60mins = MYR24 an hour
helloo...WiFi  is provided Free of Charge at KLIA!
Again ILUVMalaysia:)))))

Its normal to have some dissatisfaction feelings when you travel,  a lil bit here n there, this n that can be anything or anywhere. As for me, the NZ Immigration Check at the airport wasn't very warm & welcoming atmosphere. Most of our friends did warn us about the strict regulations on bringing food items into NZ as well as OZ.  That's why we decided not to bring any food with us. 

This pic was taken on the day we arrived (at the Immigration Check Point upon arrival)...

wooo...a very long queue at the immigration check~

No food items or anything related to declare, follow this lane....pheww!

BioSecurity New Zealand.  Errmm... if you travel to NZ or OZ much easier not to bring food items.  Both have strict rules about bringing food or animals into the country. *tedious process* 

A lady from the Auckland Airport Management approached me at the departure hall for 10mins of my time to fill up the Airport Survey Questionnaire about the facilities, Immigration, staff etc. Hey! Just right on time...Poor, Fair, Good, Excellent?? I surely do have time to give the 'ratings' they deserve:))

Ho..Ho..Ho..Malaysian Hospitality indeed~

Aircraft meal still taste average 
but at least better than the pack meal for back seat passengers..

 dessert...alwizz yummy!! 

2hrs before landing...

It was a wonderful "2in1" trip & definitely a place to visit again, have yet to see the glacier, Rotorua, Wellington & so many other interesting places in NZ, This is just AUCKLAND! Malaysia Airlines flies 5 times weekly to Auckland (except Tuesday & Sunday) click here for the website.

Bubbye KiWiLand...XoXo
