Jesse “Pinkman” Boston Terrier

I’ve been very busy lately with moving out of my old rental place & moving into my new home. Also, I’ve been kept busy with the newest addition to my family member – Jesse. I’ve always wanted a dog and finally now that I have my own place I’m able to own one.

Here’s a little bit about Jesse. She’s named after Jesse Pinkman (One of the main characters in the TV series Breaking Bad). Jesse is a Boston Terrier and I adopted her when she’s 7 months old. By the time I’m writing this blog, she’s approx. 11 months now. Time does flies. Anyway, here are some photos I have taken of her at her best behaviour.

New Zealand – Part Dos

So, y’all knew there was gonna be a part two, didn’t ya?

I also travelled to Waiheke Island during our stay in Auckland. This island is popular as a tourist attraction and also known for its winery. The island was very clean and the scenery was amazing, though I wasn’t a fan of its narrow and winding roads.

And of course, my trip to NZ wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t visit their sheep and animal farm, would it?

New Zealand – Part Uno

Recently I had a short vacation to New Zealand for the first time in my life. Though living so close to NZ, it actually took me almost 9 years before I finally decided to travel there. There’s only one word to describe NZ: Awesome. Even though it was a short 5-day trip, I really enjoyed the scenery, the people, the food and the weather to name a few.

We took a red-eye flight from Melbourne and arrived in Auckland early in the morning. Here are some photos from our stay in Auckland & the surrounding.

P.S. my dad made a cameo.

Day trip to Ballarat

About a month ago during the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, me and a couple of mates ventured to the west; Ballarat Wildlife Park for a bit of a day trip. It was about one and half hour drive from Melbourne. For those who have never been to this park, it’s basically a small zoo which holds mostly Australian animals such as the famous Kangaroos, Koalas, Wombats, as well as Tasmanian Devils. You can even pet some of these animals, especially the Kangaroos because they are all set free in this park (check out the mischievous joey in one of the photos below).

Anyway, here are some of the photos to show what our day was like.

And then on the way back, we stopped by a beautiful barn yard with sheep and a horse. It was a private property, but Dessy was bravely enough to knock on their door and requested for permission for us to take photos of their sheep and horse. The owner’s reaction was ‘You guys must be really bored to want to take photos of our sheep’. They have the cutest, most active pup I’ve ever seen. Wish I could have one of those too someday.

After leaving the farm, my GPS took a detour to a very obscure small country road on our way back to Melbourne. Interestingly, the road became really foggy and we pulled over and started taking more photos. It was probably the highlight of the day for me for that trip.
