NATURAL HIGH AT HIGH NA HIGH



Queenstown according to the chart of the Lonely Planet guide to New Zealand have the highest elevation among the major cities and town of N.Z. It has an elevation of 1181 ft. above sea level compare to Auckland 101 ft. above sea level and Christchurch 118 ft. Napakaraming bundok na matatayog na sa kanya ay pumapalibot kaya natural na dito ang mga aktibidad na involve ang kanyang mga mountains. From mountaineering, to skiing,mountain biking, paragliding, snowkiting at iba pang activities na kailangan ang taas at kabundukan meron ang Queenstown. Kaya masasabi natin pag naririto ka talaga literally High ka at magagawa mo ang gusto mong aktibidadna natural sa kanyang environs. Hindi lang kabundukan niyang napakascenic ang kanyang maipagmamalaki pati ang lawa niya at ilog ay napakakaganda at napakalinis. Marami rin ditong activities na magpupump ng iyong adrenaline upang maranasan mo ang natural high tulad ng jetboating, bungee jumping sa kanyang mga tulay pabagsak sa ilog at maging bungee jumping habang hinihila ka ng isang mabilis na boat at nakataas ka sa isang malaking parachute.
Kaya kung ang hanap mo kaibigan ay adventure at natural na kasayahan halina kabayan at bisitahin mo ang Queenstown. (Ang mga pics dito ay nagmula sa website ng Destination Queenstown)

Mula naman sa natural high magtungo tayo sa isang balita dito rin sa New Zealand na high na high. Ang pinakamalaking premyo kasaysayan ng Lotto dito ay tinamaan na at isang taga-Auckland ang nanalo nito. (Hindi kaya si Ka Uro, Balato naman diyan, Ka Urockefeller kung ikaw man yang nanalo tuloy na iyong empire). Kumpara sa malalaking bansa medyo maliit pa ito kasi maliit naman ang populasyon ng New Zealand aapat na milyong katao. Pero napakalaki na nitong premyong mahigit na $15. 2 million New Zealand Dollar kung icoconvert sa Philippine Pesos mahigit na .6 billion o 600 milyong piso. Suwerte naman ng nananalo siguro high na high siya wag lang sanang masakit siya sa puso at baka sa sobrang high niya lumipad na siya patungo sa kalangitan kung saan hindi na niya madadala ang kanyang kayamanan.

$15.2 MILLION POWERBALL JACKPOT WON BY TICKET BOUGHT IN AUCKLAND IS BIGGEST NZ LOTTERY PRIZE EVER
A Lotto ticket bought in Auckland has won $15.2 million in tonight’s Lotto draw, the biggest lottery prize ever won in New Zealand, says New Zealand Lotteries Commission (NZ Lotteries) Chief Executive Trevor Hall.
The owner of the ticket, bought at Amigo's Paper Power & Lotto, Mt Roskill, Auckland, will take home a total of $15,233,068, made up of $14,500,000 from Powerball and $733,068 from being a Division One Lotto winner.
“Its amazing to think we’ve just made one of our players a multi-millionaire. Imagine how that must feel,” Mr Hall said.
“With a total prize payout of $15,233,068 million, this is the largest Powerball jackpot ever won in New Zealand. The win will be a life-changing experience for whoever has the winning ticket,” he said.
Until now, the largest Lotto Powerball prize ever won by an individual ticket was $14,763,254, won in April last year from a ticket bought in Kawerau and the second biggest prize was $12,053,517, won in June this year on a ticket bought in Napier by a Hawkes Bay family.
Mr Hall urged all Lotto players who bought tickets at Amigo's Paper Power & Lotto to get their tickets checked and to immediately contact NZ Lotteries if they have won.
“We can provide winners with advice about the next steps to take,” Mr Hall said.
Three other Powerball jackpot prizes have exceeded $5 million this year. In June, a ticket bought in Napier won a $12 million prize, which was at that time the second biggest Powerball prize ever won by a single ticket. In February a Rugby Sevens fan scooped a cool $6.5 million on a ticket bought in Paraparaumu, near Wellington, and in April a ticket bought in Devonport, Auckland, won $5.5 million.
Other big wins have included $11.4 million from a ticket bought in Hokitika in November 2002, and a $9.9 million prize won in the 2004 Christmas Day draw on a ticket bought in Wellington, said Mr Hall.

Di bale para ka rin na namang nanalo ng lotto sarap ng feeling ng may minamahal at may nagmamahal high na high.

JO said...

Atoy, what would you do if you were the big winner???

atoy said...

Jo,
Sarap mangarap> Kung ako ang nanalo niyan baka hinimatay ako. Pag nahulasan saka ko maiisip anong biyaya tio na pinadala sa akin ng Poong Maykapal kaya una ko muna siyang pasasalamatan. Yong mga debosyon ko kay Mother of Perpetual Help ang aking unang bibigyan ng funds, pati yong iniisip kong foundation para sa aking bata na namatay. Sunod siyempre isesecure ko future na aking immediate family Mga investment sa real estate at securities at trust funds and then yon namang mga brothers ko at nanay ko pati mga relative sa Pilipinas. May pondo akong iseset aside para sa mga talagang nangangailangan ng tulong . At saka scholarship para sa mga batang matatalino na kulang sa pera pag maipagpatuloy ang pag-aaral at maging sa technical and vocational skills upang hindi pera ang mapabigay sa mga tao kundi turuan mo silang kumita ng pera.
