Cathedral Cove PhotoDump

After Hobbiton, we decided to go to Narnia next.😂

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the Chronicles of Narnia and I have to admit that I forgot which scene showcased the location. 😅

Cathedral Cove is a 3-hour drive away from Auckland.

It takes 45 minutes to reach the beach from the parking lot. The hike is not at all treacherous but if you’re as unconditioned as I am then it’s a looooong and tiring hike.😭

The view is very worth it though.❤️

We were quite lucky because there wasn’t a lot of people there so we were able to get decent shots.❤️

Again, I used my Iphone to take these photos. Not too bad eh?

Hobbiton: Journey to Middle Earth PhotoDump

May 17, 2018

My housemates and I decided to go to the Hobbiton Movie Set yesterday.

To those who don’t know, it’s the location used for both The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit film series. It’s a 2+ hour drive from Auckland and tickets cost around 84nzd which already includes a 2 hour tour around the set and free drinks after.

There are 44 hobbit holes on set. If you look closely, you’re able to tell the occupation of those who were living at each house.

Here are random shots around the set.

Were you able to tell which ones belonged to Bilbo Baggins and Sam? 🤔

After walking around Hobbiton, the tour guide then took us to the Green Dragon where we enjoyed our drinks.❤️ They offered us both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Recently sold off my other camera and had to use my Iphone for these photos. I didn’t take much photos because I was focused on enjoying the whole experience.😂 I chose not to edit these photos because I wanted to remember Hobbiton just as I saw it: Beautiful and full of vibrant colours.❤️

3AM thoughts

It’s exactly 3AM when I decided to write this post. Here’s proof:

That’s my Angkong. My grandfather.

I just finished watching Freedom Writers for the nth time. The movie is about how a teacher was able to change the lives of her students. What the movie impressed on me was that we have the power to induce change. (I’m not even sure if induce is the right word. I’m sleepy so my brain is not working but I want to express my thoughts now ’cause I’m sure I will forget it tomorrow.)

I remember one CCF pastor talking about something along the lines of making a difference in the workplace. We are all capable of making a difference. Nothing is coincidental in this world. I firmly believe that everything is according to God’s plan. This means that we are all exactly where we were meant to be.

So this got me thinking…

If I am where I am meant to be, how can I make a difference in the workplace?

What can I do? What SHOULD I do?

How can I glorify my God at work?


I should sleep.
