Split apple Motueka!

It's a Sunday morning and Cathryn asked Johny where we can go and Johny suggested we can go fishing. Before that I went to Sunday market with carol and I think it is fun. I'm so gonna head back next week when I get a job so I can spend some money on there too. Anyway, after spending Morning with carol, a girl from Taiwan and I know I like her from the beginning.
She can speak and joke and definitely not boring. That is what's like about her, outgoing fun and optimistic. The market is located at Motueka just right in from isite. They are selling cheap veggie and food all around there of course not to forget about some second hand clothes. That is so nice especially for someone poor like me. It's lunch time already when we finish shopping and we went ahead for a cheap Indian meal ohhhh it is vegetarian! Like omg vegetarian! My dad will love it and I forgot to snap some pictures because we pack it back it kind look disgusting when I'm eating it.
It's noon time and Johny bring us for short trip to split apple. This a town where apple is one of the main seasonal job available. The place we went is called kaiteriteri. It is a beautiful place. We stop by at beach at take some pictures and chat with Johny about Malaysia and Malaysian.
Some people were having a picnic and some having a sea taxi. It's just how people here enjoy Sunday. Not necessary to do something but it must be a relax day. We dint realize it was already 4pm and We hurry up to the split apple. * the sky here getting dark faster than malaysia*
Dataaaaaa! Finally we are here to witness the split apple rock.
wanted to get a better spot to take the picture so I try climb to another side for the view and followed by Johnny. Cathryn said she will be just fine to stay at the beach. *safetypersonalert*
While we getting a better pictures of it. We met our backpacker mate from Germany and England!
They told us there are sea gull inside and it is scary! Ah aha but all I get is excitement and watch them. So Johnny lead the way and it is further than we though and the rock is getting higher and sky is getting darker! Oh no! Nevertheless we still managed to watch it thanks to Johnny determination. It was fun and all in my mind at that moment was the sea gull is going to eat us! The said it was scary! Lol. Ended up they were harmless and even swim to our direction. But they were swimming so can't take a better pictures of them and they are really cute.
The thing that I feel touched is the sky and horizontal line lay between the ocean and sky. It was perfect. It might be just nothing to anyone but that meant a lot for me because what I wanted in this trip is to witness the best of everything. What is the best? The best of a thing can only be defined by my feeling. I decided to let my feeling take me. I feel like I was watching a rainbow in front of my eyes.
Things doesn't always come good to you. When there is a good one there is always a bad one.
Cathryn who decided to stay left us and back to town with other people. From what I get from the way she talk, she is selfish people. The excuse she gave was it was not safe and it is getting dark, alone and so on so on. I can simply fight her back but I just don't want. There is a man fishing right there from the beginning until me and Johnny left. So the man was there all time, she is not alone and she not even worry of our safety while we climb so far away. All she is thinking is herself. How can she manage to go back! When I said climb I meant it. We climb from rock to rock near the seashore and not walking by the sand to watch sea gull. I know I should bear my own risk for what I'm doing so do her. That's why she make a decision to left with some unknown for her own safety at safety beachside with man fishing nearby than worry her travel mate and friend who travel so long and still not appearing when the water level is going up. She even said she was mad at us that we are still not back while the sky is getting dark. That is my conclusion, I'm not gonna tell you how I feel about it but I can be sure she will not be apart of my trip journal or memory. Someone I'm definitely not fond!
Morning Sunday in Motueka
Thursday, May 9, 2013 || 4:58 PM
Since we do not have our own transport all we can do is tag along with those who own one. Early morning waiting for Jerry to reply us because he said we might be going to national park or something or maybe kayak? Nt sure about it anymore because it was 9.21 now and still no news from our only China's friend here. Shall wait more or just go back to sleep? I'm not sure because I don't think I can sleep now and I had just take breakfast. Not gonna sleep with my full stomach.
I've heard that there is a morning market in the town from carol, a new friend from Taiwan. Hohhot did mention she has Ang mou bf? I think he is from somewhere near Norway. Anyway, still waiting patiently..
Tada it is going to noon and jerry return a call that we will be going to national park at 1pm!
At the end we managed to go to Abel Tasman National Park and it is not that cool because it was a rainy day and we have to do is hide from the rain and hide from wind. Madcoldlikeomgthefuckingcold. Thank you to Jerry for including us in his plan and Johny who bring us there. Anyway, I'm glad that at least we are able to go travel a little bit while at every stop and I'm glad that while struggling with my "parttimejob" I'm still holding on with passion on travel and did or blind it with economy crisis! Btw it is our agent which is contractor that drive us and he don't need us to pay back for petrol so it is like double Yay!
We were supposingly watch sea gull and beach but due to the fuck annoyed winter we dint manage to enjoy the beach with oh summer feel but din snap some picture with my camera and gonna update it soon. We walk all the way from the car park and crossly the beach. Our intention to watch the split apple butttttttttt we started at 2pm and the sky in New Zealand getting dark very early like 6pm it is allllll dark here already with he rainy and windy day. "Sigh"
Dint manage to watch the split apple and sea gull that was sooo farmhouse but I did take a picture of a stone that look like an eaten apple. It is like better than nothing!
