哈哈,過年都已經過了好多天,才來跟大家說新年快樂,祝大家新的一年事事順心,萬事如意!!

在家裡因為沒有ADSL,所以就只能用撥接的啦,可是偏偏我哪台ASUS L4418...莫名其妙的無法撥接,一連線上去就會斷線,根本沒辦法連網頁到第二頁....當初一買的時候就有發現這問題,還特別去送修.花了一天跟我說一點問題都沒有??!可是我就是不能用撥接上網....害我後來就對於ASUS 充滿了反感...什麼華碩品質堅若盤石...根本就是氣死人.用了3年,液晶螢幕也開始出現線條....所以看起來是設計的很有質感,可以獲得設計獎,偏偏用的東西都濫吧...

糟糕,要拜年最後卻是抱怨一大堆,幸好家裡還有一台ACER...不然現在還真的不能上網拜年呢~新年快樂~~:)

過年時間有去了一些地方走走,等回到新竹有寬頻後再來和大家分享吧~~:)

杜拜最近最有名的就是帆船飯店了,因為是目前全世界最豪華享受的飯店,所以許多人的夢想就是到這邊去住上一晚.


可是杜拜除了帆船飯店之外,野心不小的有著許多的超大工程在進行中,之前在電視上有看到他們在填海造陸的蓋房子,想不到今天收到了個mail,真的連到那Palm網站看看...

哇賽!!還真的有在進行,還開始賣房子了耶!而且還分有很多種類:公寓,海上小屋,Villa...等等不同的類型,都在棕攬樹造型的陸地上...所以每一棟都可以面海,具有沙灘~~看看網站上說的價格最便宜從美金275,000起.而且最神奇的是..有很多類型的房子都已經賣完了耶~網站上還寫到可以向HSBC貸款~:P

南庄...現在早已經變成了周休二日的熱門旅遊景點,隨之有越來越多的特色餐廳的出現.而山行玫瑰更是久聞其名...

不過在外面低溫特報,溫度12度還下著小雨的情況之下,竟然還是一點都不畏懼的出發....雖然冷規冷,但是好處是...原本常常會大爆滿了山行玫瑰...停車場還有位置~:)


*雖然是沿著山邊而建,但是景觀設計的還不錯.

第一次看到這本書,是在誠品書店中看到誠品真心推薦.而說改編自狼圖騰,不過那時候的我,對於這兩本書一點感覺都沒有,但是卻因為誠品的真心推薦,就讓我相信他的直接就買下來了.

這本書算是小說的類型,而故事的主體主要在述說著蒙古大草原中,最兇猛的動物-狼的生活習性,和蒙古草原中的各種牲畜間的關係.詳細的程度,作者的確是需要花費相當長的時間,在蒙古草原中生活並觀察.而當時的蒙古草原,狼可以說是羊牛馬的天敵,但是卻也可以幫助殺死草原中的野鼠.這樣的生態,不知不覺中在蒙古草原行成了一種平衡,牧民們對於這樣騰格里(天神)的安排,無不服從佩服的.

但是書中的主角陳陣,一個漢人竟然用自己的想法來飼養抓到的小狼,藉此詳細的觀察了狼的一舉一動,描述的十分詳細.但是卻也破壞了當地牧民的習慣,雖然最後得以繼續飼養,一步一步的看著小狼長大,可是狼的本性卻不會因為人的飼養而改變,那種高傲不屈的態度,最後也不得不逼死了自己.

整體的感覺而言...假如你喜歡大漠風光,喜歡蒙古草原或是喜歡看到對於動物的舉動超詳細的描述的話,這本書滿適合你的.而我的感覺是soso,因為故事的張力並不會很強,只能說他對於蒙古草原的生態描述真的是超詳細,在現在這社會,草原已經被破壞的情況下,實在是難能可貴.而最後的結局也是出乎意料的情況,但是整體感覺...是沒有必要特別買來看~

第一次嘗試自己進暗房放相,而今天正好運氣很好的沒幾個人去參加,所以呢...幾乎就是老師一對一的教導了~~:)

從放大機的解說,藥水的調配,到最後測試,調整焦點曝光時間,實際放出 10x15的大張黑白照片...感覺真有趣!!對我這新手來說,平均洗出一張大約需要30mins 的時間.而且是要老師在一旁幫忙看測試時要以幾秒的曝光時間,真的開始放相時需要設定幾秒...幸好有老師在~:P

藥水的調配:
1.顯影液:1:9 (需時90sec)
2.急制液:1:19 (需時60sec)

攝影團每年舉辦一次的控窯大會,而我今年則是第一次參加.地點就在老師家位在南寮的空地上.對於控窯的印象已經是停在小時後唯一的一次,就在家裡附近的田地,趁休耕期間一群小朋友一起搭窯玩,還滿有趣的.

不過正巧中午有喜宴必須參加,所以穿的很正式的我,在田中走來走去,偏偏就是都不動手~:P


*很難搭起來的大家手忙腳亂~

赫赫有名的八通關古道,四通八達的可以通到許多的地方,像是由塔塔加登玉山,或是由東埔到八通關大草原.不過由東埔進入的路段景色也相當的不錯,加上路程大多都是平路好走,還滿適合親子一日健行的行程.

*看著下面的東埔村,景色極佳.

o1137290602
*相當有名的父子斷崖,已經和我小時後的印象有些不同,過去只有小小的一小塊可走,必須拉著纜線,而現在已經變成鐵橋可通行了.

東埔溫泉區中,達谷蘭溫泉農場算是較新的溫泉飯店,設施新穎而且高級的感覺.假日的住宿價格不斐,從5000-7500都有,雖然包含早晚餐,但是價位上算是高檔.幸好平日有打對折優惠~

而這邊還有王建民來住過唷~離東埔市區相當的接近,所以還算方便.

1137243503
*內部裝潢還不錯,還有半露天溫泉池.只是連洗澡也都半露天...很怕會被對面偷看到~

位在南投的信義鄉,除了風櫃斗賞梅赫赫有名之外,還有東埔溫泉,盛產葡萄等等有名的地方和東西.

進入東埔溫泉之前,會先經過信義鄉農會,這邊有賣著許許多多的東西,像是醋,梅子,或是酒類,是買紀念品的好地方~~

*裡面的產品相當的多樣

在拍完梅花之後,正巧看到聯合新聞網中介紹梅花的小檔案,就把他給Copy過來跟大家分享.

梅花小檔案 【邱淑玲】

梅花,為薔薇科落葉小喬木,原產於大陸南部地區,人類栽培已有三千多年歷史。台灣並不產梅,梅樹為先民渡海來台時帶進栽種,因具有食用和經濟價值,如今已成為台灣重要農產。

台灣雖不產梅,但因梅樹引進台灣早,已有馴化野生現象,全台處處可賞梅,梅花也成為台灣冬季主要觀花植物,梅製品更是多不可勝數,不管是醃製、釀酒、入菜極具特色。

位在南投信義鄉的梅花正在盛開中.利用公司難得的歲修假期,在平日的時候遠赴南投賞梅,好處當然就是...人好少啦!!

終於終於,在 Yahoo 要把個人網頁關閉的同時,先把一個網站給搬到部落格了.可是當初網頁所設計出來的版面通通都不見了,幸好只要的內容才是重點.可是另外的問題就是照片的搬家,把他搬到了 Yahoo Blog & Pixnet.


*原本網站的樣子

在花了好幾個禮拜之後,終於順利通通搬出來了,可是搬的過程中,有些照片忘記 Resize 了,所以有點大張,自己又懶惰在弄一次,大家就只好將就看內容,照片少點的樣子吧~

[Geography Position]  [Population]  [Climate]  [Departure and Arrival]  [Visa]  [Volts]  [Time Difference]  [Money]  [Office Time]  [Traffic]  [Tips]  [Commodity Prices]  [Telephone]
Before you visit New Zealand, I think you have to understand more about New Zealand. Then you can really enjoy it.
Geography Position
At the South Pacific Ocean, the total length is 1600km, near Antarctica. Composed by the North and the South islands, total landscape is 27.5million km2 (About 7 times larger than Taiwan). 
The Highest Mountain: Mt. Cook(庫克山),3754m.
The Largest Lake: Lake Taupo(陶波湖),606km2 .
The Dippiest Lake: Lake Hauroko(郝羅口湖),462m.
The Longest River: Waikato(懷卡多河),425km.
The Largest Glacier: Tasman Glacier(塔斯曼冰河),29km.
Population
380million people.
The Largest City :Auckland(奧克蘭),100 million people.
The Second Largest City :Wellington(威靈頓),Captial.
The Third Largest City :Christchurch(基督城),The Largest City at the South Island.
Climate
The winter and summer is totally different with Taiwan. Winter is June to August, summer is December to February.
City in Chinese City Temperature in Summer Temperature in Winter
奧克蘭 Auckland 23.8 15.1
威靈頓 Wellington 20.3 11.2
基督城 Christchurch 22.6 11.1
但尼丁 Dunedin 18.9 9.9
皇后鎮 Queenstown 22 10
Departure and Arrival
Because the main economic activity of New Zealand are agricultures, so they have strict constrains on many things. Especially, you can't bring any plant and fruit, any thing that might make any dangerous for their cows, sheep and plants.

When you leave New Zealand, you have to pay NZ$25 departure fee. (You can pay at the Bank of New Zealand at ground or 2nd floor.) If you want to take a suitcase with you to aboard air plant, please notice the size and weight of your suitcase. Because before you pass the customer, they will check your suitcase. If they find your suitcase is overweight (The limit is 7kg) or oversize, they will ask you to pay extra pay.

VISA
If you are a Taiwanese, you need a VISA to enter New Zealand. Usually, for Visitor VISA, you can stay in New Zealand for 3 months. You also can apply Work VISA or Student VISA.
Volts
The Volts is 230-240v.
Time Difference
In winter (March- October), there are 4 hours earlier than Taiwan.  But in summer (October- March) , there are 5 hours earlier than Taiwan. Why do they have this difference? Because of Daylight Saving. At the 5th of Oct., they will turn an hour forward, and at the 5th of March, they will turn it back. For Taiwanese, we have to take care of it, because we don't have this problem in our country. Maybe you will miss the bus of air flight, just because you have no idea about this.
Money
In New Zealand, their money called New Zealand dollars (NZ$). Comparing to Taiwan, NZ$ 1 = NT$ 20.

The paper money has NZ$ 100、50、20、10、5. Coins have NZ$2、1、50、20、10、5.

Office Time
Banks: Mon. to Fri. 9:30--16:30 (Some Banks also open at weekend.)
Post Offices: Mon. to Fri. 9:00--17:00 (Big Banks open at Sat.)
Stores: Mon to Thu 9:00--17:30
             Fri & Sat 9:00--19:00
             Sun 10:00--16:00
Traffic
Car:
Basically, people use cars for daily transportation. But the driver sit is at right hand side, and the cars drive at left hand side. So you have to notice the difference with Taiwan. At country side, there are not so many cars, so you can drive with International Driving License and your courage. I think it's not so difficult. Only at round about, they don't have traffic light, so you have to notice when you want to pass the round about.

When you sit in the car, you have to tight safety belt. If you want to turn right at the road cross, you have to let the left turn car go first.

Buses:

In the big cities, the bus service is not bad, but they don't have bus service in small cities. Usually, there are more bus service at Monday to Friday. During the weekend, they don't have so many bus service. If you live in the suburbs, you only have a bus service per hour. In some cities, they have bus service information system, they can show you how long you have to wait fir your bus. It's very convenient.

Trains:

The buses and trains service are not very good. There are only Auckland to Wellington and back having trains service. There are a train per day, and the price are very closed to air ticket.
Tips
You don't need to pay tips in New Zealand. Everything has included 12.5% GST in it.
Commodity Prices
The commodity prices are much expensive than Taipei. So when we arrived here, we couldn't get use to the price here. We found only one thing is the same price with Taiwan - the MacDonald's soft pop cone.
Telephone
If you make a local phone call, the price is NZ$0.50. If you make a long distance call, the price depends on the distance. Sometimes is 70 cents, sometimes is NZ$1.20. Basically, there are card phones, you will find it's difficult to find a coin phone.

I have been lived in New Zealand for almost four months, and traveled around the South Island for two weeks. I am impressive about the tourism industrial. In Taiwan, our government talked about the plan for making the tourism double, but now I think our tourist software is not completely. How could they make the tourists double?

1. Information Center

In New Zealand, every cities have Information Center. In the Information Center, they have the tour information cities introductions and they can help you to book the motels, package tourists and buses. You can ask any questions and they will answer you.

But in Taiwan, we don't have many information center. In some information center in Taiwan, they only have some pictures and nothing else. Basically, the staffs can't speak English. In this situation, how can foreigners ask questions? They don't have booking service, and they don't have many tour information about the city.

Before we can read much news about a singer or actor go to overseas to study English. Or your friends quit their job and go to study English to recharge their energy. Let me told you my experience.
Basically, we want to improve our English, so we go to study English overseas. But actually, I think the price of studying overseas is you can open your mind and eyes to experience the different life style. And you can meet many friends from different countries.

But in my case, I went to study English, because I think it will very important if I want to get a good job. More and more companies ask the English ability. And it's very difficult to go to overseas for a long time after you begin working. I think it worth it so far.

Do I need to find a agent?

之前常常看到有藝人或是上班族辭掉了工作,出國去遊學充電了一下,這樣子出去一下會有多少差別呢?我就我出國去四個月的感覺跟大家分享。

其實出國去遊學說的好聽是學英文,但是實際上最主要的還是讓自己出去外面看看,開開眼界,享受一下異國的生活,去認識不同國家的朋友,這些東西假如你在工作了一陣子後,覺得自己停頓不前時,應該會是最好的遊學時機。

而我當初是因為考慮到在求職時,可能會有越來越多的公司要求英文能力,而自己本身的英文能力並不是非常的強,加上如果工作後,想要這樣子出去的可能性並不高,所以就決定在退伍後先出國去充實一下自己的英文程度,整體而言,我自己覺得是滿值得的。

需要找代辦嗎?

行程要怎麼規劃常常是大家頭大的問題,這邊就依時間長短給大家一點建議。

我只有一個禮拜
北島
在Auckland呆上一天(Sky Tower、 Queen Street、 Mission Bay...),往Bay of Islands走繞一圈(Nine Miles Beach)(需2-3天),順便路過Waitangi,經由Waipoua Kauri Forest、Matakohe Kauri Museum,再回到Auckland。
往南前往Rotorua(Wai-o- Taupo Thermal Park、 Maori Hangi)(1-2天),Waitomo Caves(半天),最後在到Taupo(Huka Jet、 Huka Fall)(一天)。

Nowadays, self-traveling is very popular. Is it very difficult to travel in New Zealand? If you are brave and you can speak a little English, it's not a problem!

Should I go with a tourism group or myself?

If you are young, you can handle long time walking or very tired journey, you can try self-traveling. If you are not so young and you don't like to worry about your schedule, you should go with a tourism group. They arrange your hotel, meals, all you have to do is enjoy your trip. But one thing different, you have to follow their schedule. If you want to stay one more day at some places, you can't. New Zealand is famous for the exciting activities. If you go with a group, you don't have chance to experience it (Such as Bungy jump, glacier hike...so on). So before your trip, make sure what you really want.

Should I go with a partner?
