On the first day of 2013, we decided to explore the rest of the shopping malls in Christchurch and other random places. One of them is University of Canterbury *LOL* It was in the Orbiter route. We just went down, had a look and hopped back on the bus in minutes ;p
Then we went to Northlands, one of the shopping malls.
Bought our lunch here and guess what?!?! Sushi again! We bought the lunch deal, they have different lunch deal everyday. Lucky us, it was the day of the salmon *SLURP*
Next, it’s another shopping mall, The Palms. It seemed big but nothing much to see. It was a bit of a let down to us. I guess we’ve been to Westfield Riccarton already, so the rest of the major shopping malls were nothing much to us anymore. Guess what?!?! I wanted to buy a small bottle of wine at a supermarket here to bring back as souvenir but I wasn’t allowed to buy it because I failed to produce my passport and they didn’t recognize any other ID.
Lots sushi shops here. Bought a teriyakki rice ball (I think it’s NZD4.90) here for my dinner.
Our lunch, McD. Chicken burger and apple pie. Total for both was less than NZD4. Wanted to go over to KFC across the road for the lunch deal but we were 15 minutes late.
We decided to go to Lyttelton, port town on the north shore of Lyttelton Harbour.
It’s badly damaged by the earthquake too.
I stayed there for about half hour only then headed back to the city. In fact we didn’t plan to alight the bus but the bus driver said he’s taking a rest before continuing as this is where his rest stop was so we had to stay for a bit there ;p he told us that he will pick us up at a specific time.
That’s the end of our 1/1/2013. Gonna prepare to pack our bag to go back to Australia the next day.
