So we woke up to a chilly Saturday morning in Waitomo. Which Narita showed us around her farm and let us fed the lamb, chicken, birds and errr pigs?HAHA
Right after that, we hurriedly went to Waitomo Gloworm Caves since we’ve pre-booked the ticket for the 9am tours. As we arrived, the tour guide brought us to the Ruakuri Cave also known as The Dent of Dogs.
Since it’s a cave, of course it was dark and chilly, we literally walk down to 70m deep. The formation of stalactite and stalagmite was amazingly beautiful.
Narita was very nice! Love her!

After we’ve finished the touring within ruakuri cave, we went back to the Waitomo gloworm cave which, we witnessed a glow worm glowing, sadly , we can’t snap any picture of it, but it was splendidly beautiful. AllahuakhbarThe architecture of this place is simply amazing
Right after that, we make our move to Matamata, Hobbiton!
our tour guide, James , Arina insisted that he’s a Kiwi, so yes! He’s a Kiwi
so James showed us each and every of the rabbit holes there. Since I’m not an avid van of LOTR and Hobbiton, I haven’t watch any of the movies yet. Sorry guys. But hey, atleast I tried to know about it right. So, James told us about the USD800k tree above Frodo’s house, which each of the leaves were handstictched since they wanted to make it looks real.
Next is the party tree, to all fans, the tree were no longer growing, it’s dying.
Before the touring ends, every tourist we’re given a freshment each, there’s 3 types of beer and one non-alcoholic drink, that is Ginger beer -.-
Kalau bagi Ginger Beer gelas kecik takpe, ni gelas bapak penih pulak tu. Tak ke semput nak menghabiskan?HAHA
Okay, lepas habis pusing Matamata, we made our way back to Auckland, since our flight back home is in the next morning. Singgah Hamilton jap for dinner at the Indian restaurant. Don’t worry it’s halal since the supplier is a Muslim Malaysian.
Ofcourse another night in the airport.
Conclusion : It was a really nice short sweet retreat to the land of Kiwi’s with it’s most friendly citizens breathtakingly beautiful scenery and chilly weather. Will definitely come back here. Insha Allah. Thanks New Zealand for the beautiful memory! <3
