♥ 16 August ♥ My 2nd trip to NZ + A Short & Sweet Date ♥ Part 4 from 5 - Hari yang tak jadi blk, jadinye to Dunny lagi...


16 Aug – Pg tu lps sahur, Shairah still risau. Tapi tgk updates OK. Flight kitaorg from Queenstown to Christchurch patutnye pagi tu. Dlm 1030am. Update ckp flight as scheduled. Kitaorg dh siap kemas pe semua semalam. Mmg dh ready nk gerak. Lgpn kena tunggu tepi jalan for taxi, bus or kete sebab kitaorg patah kaki kete stuck. Haha..  30 mins later lps check update, tibe tgk lagi last update >> flight cancelled!! Argh. Frust gak actually. Plan nye Hanes nk jemput kul 7am. Sblm dia pegi keje. Tp jalan ke arah hotel kami tak clear lagi and bahaya gak. So mmg tak dptlah dia dtg. Tp kena jumpe gak ni. Dia tertinggal wallet dia and ada food kami nk pass.

Keadaan makin teruk dr semalam. Around 745am tunggu bus. Lama gak tunggu. We’re lucky sebab ada taxi lalu. Tp phew, $28 for 10km camtu..  Taxi tu drop kitaorg kat Town. Kitaorg pegi Info Centre (erkk confuse sbb ada 3 tmpt), tanye no fon tow service. Beg slumber je tinggal dlm Isite. Then kitaorg walk 1.8km in snow dari Town to Tow Service. Blh tahan ahh kena bayar $75. Kete kami dpt tarik kua dari snow. Terus amik beg and singgah McD jumpe Hanes. Kitaorg kena settle down jap sebab nk call sane sini. Lagipn dh x blh nk gerak gi mane2 sbb flight cancelled. Duk pk la options ape ada. 

Call Air Asia, Jetstar, Air NZ etc. Sorted out things. Extend kete etc.. Dlm 4 jam duk kat McD contact sane sini, check road watch and airports conditions.. Paling dasat kena sabar sebab update kua setiap sejam. Kitaorg ada 3 options  

1)      Amik next flight out to Christchurch dari Queenstown, then next flight available to AUS/MYS 
2)     Drive from Queenstown to Christchurch and then next flight available to AUS/MYS 3)     Drive to Dunny from Queenstown, amik local flight to Christchurch and then next flight available to AUS/MYS  


1st  option >> Call Air NZ, pheww first flight available 22 Aug, Monday. So mmg NO NO lah. Sbb Bb nk kena pegi Sri Lanka 20 Aug for Exercise 

2nd option >> Nk drive, tp tgk Road watch, ada 3 warnings road closure sebab snow conditions 

3rd option >> Ada 1 je warning road closure *risk kurang*.

Tp still tak ley wat pape sebab kena tunggu update baru. Patutnye update kul 12pm. Tp tgk website Road watch, next update kul 1pm. Pergh mmg tetap sabar.. Tp kitaorg duk refresh2 page tu. Once dr Red warning jd Yellow warning, terus kitaorg call Air NZ tukar route (dpt tukar FOC sbb flight cancelled), call Jetstar to change my flight Christchurch to SYD utk next flight in 2 days (bayar skit utk fare difference), call Air Asia (ni sakit jiwe mcm ape!! Nk kena ada bukti la ape la. Derr. 

Dh laa call contact centre NZ. Tak kan korang x de news update kot pasal heavy snow fall pe sme. Bengong).  Sblm gerak, kitaorg tapau McD utk berbuka. Thanks to Hanes sbb dpt discount staff.

 

Then pi Queenstown Airport jumpe Jucy rental untuk extend lg sehari + one way hire to Dunny + hire road chain for back up. Drive kali ni mmg view lain sgt dr yang kitaorg pegi mula2. Cantik. Spnjg perjalanan view mmg amazing sgt.. Kiri kanan snowy mountains je Stop at few places, amik pics kat Cromwell, tapau Seafood Sensation Subway & Cookies. Time ni mmg dh petang. 330pm camtu. Kitaorg berbuka dlm kete je. 

Tapi Kak Nieda masak gak. Smpi Dunny, makan lagi. Kak Nieda time tu x de kat umah sebab ada jemputan berbuka. Dapatlah kami jumpe kiddos. Malam tu chillax je ngn budak2 tu. Tp sempat gado ngn Air Asia. Dah la suruh email information. Patu dorang kate akan email balik. Dh mark as urgent kot. Bile kol Air Asia balik, baru dorang ckp nk review email. Minah yg jawab tu ckp, “oh conditions kena call 48 hours bla3”.. bodoh ke dia tu, dah ckp kot pasal heavy snow. It’s mother nature. U wouldn’t know it will happen, until it happens kan.. Derrrr.. ko keje call centre yg jaga calls dari NZ region, tak kan la Air Asia x de update on intranet dorang? Confuse aku ! dh aa setiap kali call, setiap kali tu kena letak fon no kat machine. 

Bile consultant angkat, tanye lagi fon number. Ntah pape. Wasting time btol! Kalau ikut Bb, dia malas nk call. Nk rebook one way baru dlm RM1600++ kot. Tp bile Shairah call explain pe sme, bayar dlm RM630 ++ je. Pergh. Mahal gile bile pk Air Asia ni. Mlm tu gak la booking last minute hotel kat Christchurch pe semua. 

Confuse gak, Jetstar OK je no hal. Sbb mende jadi unexpected kan. Lepas semua done and dusted. Just lepak2 ngn kiddos and Kak Nieda Nieda. Tgk movie borak2 pe semua. Bdk2 kecik tu tak nak tido sebab takut nnt bangun kitaorg tak de lagi. Hehehe
