Dahil sa ako ay taga Queenstown pero mas higit sa lahat dahil likas sa kaugalian ng Pilipino ang maging mabait at maasikaso sa kanyang bisita ang site na ito ay nakikiisa sa " Visitor Friendly Site Movement" para sa pagpapalaganap ng tamang pagtrato sa mga bisita sa kanilang blogsite. Sana pasyalan ninyo ang site na ito at kung naniniwala kayo sa kanyang cause ilagay rin ninyo ang logo at link sa nasabing samahan. http://vfsmovement.blogspot.com/

Puremood,
Thats my town Queenstown. It has the monicker of "The adventure capital of the World" due to its various adrenaline pumping activities. There are lots of visitors from your part of the world who come here. During winter a lot of the younger generation cause its summer in your place while during summer its the oldies who wanted to escape the colds in the northern hemisphere. Hope you can visit New Zealand someday. I will link you up.

KU,
Hirap pala pag bisita amerikana. Hirap translate pag ang isip mo sa tagalog baka gagawin mong English. Sana may mapapasyal na iba pang lahi para masubukan yong website na may translation ng phrases.

darlene said...

kelan kaya ako makakarating ng NZ? Sa pics pa lang, nakaka-inganyo..

atoy said...

Darlene,
Kung gugustuhin mo siguro walang problema kasi nurse ka. Kailangan din dito ang mga nurses kaya lang mas maganda ang suweldo ng mga nurses sa Amerika at Europa kaya nga medyo kulang dito nurses napunta sila sa abroad lalo na pag may student loan para mabayaran nila agad mga utang nila. Ok welcome ka sa VFS at welcome ka rin sa amin sa New Zealand pag napasyal ka. South Island kami Central Otago ang region namin.

KaDyo said...

Owen Fv,
Sabi nga ni Olive may balak pala kayong mamasyal dito. 10 hrs ride ang New Zealand sa commercial plane from Singapore. Suggestion ko sa inyo daan na rin kayo ng Australia pero mas sulit trip ninyo.

atoy said...

Donya Mildred,
Saan ang sakay mo sa private jet mo o sige pahahanda ko ang aking private airport para makalanding ang jet mo ngayon din. Just call me through my satellite phone and the number is 0-0-1-0-2-10. Just look for Ka Antot yan kasi ang isa ko pang code name (dami kong alyas halata bang estafador ang profession ko.:)
