March 22nd….

yup~ March 22nd is the date! The date that my course of life will be changed, the day that I will start to see so many things differently! The day that I will change in a lot of things!

Some might know, some still don’t know. I didn’t tell many people,  but here goes …

I will be flying to New Zealand for Working Holiday Scheme. March 22nd I will be flying to Melbourne and holiday for 2 weeks first with my best friend before flying to New Zealand for a great adventure that is awaiting me.

I’ve been waiting for this moment for months, and it’s finally here. Exactly another 1 month to go.

For the benefit of those who do not understand, Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is a visa issued to Malaysians whom wants to work and holiday at the same time in New Zealand

you can get more info from the following link :

Working Holiday Visa for Malaysian

To be eligible for this visa, the following requirements applies :

  • have a Malaysian passport that‘s valid for at least three months after your planned departure from New Zealand
  • be at least 18 and not more than 30 years old
  • not bring children with you
  • hold a return ticket or sufficient funds to purchase such a ticket*
  • have a minimum of NZ$2,250 available funds to meet your living costs while you’re here
  • meet our health and character requirements
  • be coming to New Zealand to holiday, with work or study being secondary intentions for your visit
  • not have been approved a visa or permit under a Working Holiday Scheme before.

You do not need to have a job before applying this visa. Normally a lot of people get a job after they reach to New Zealand.

What you need to prepare is

  1. Money (enough funds to cover also for the return ticket)
  2. Winter clothing
  3. Enough links for transport, accomodation there and links to find job
  4. camera? hehe

I bought my ticket via transit in Melbourne. altogether to reach to New Zealand is about rm 1400. But i believe you can get cheaper through fairs and also MAS is having promotion now!

Going to start preparing my luggage, I only have 20kg limit! I wonder how am I going to bring everything there!
