Strawberry Picking in New Zealand

** Since FuFu was busy for the preparation to Germany and couldn't get the Europe World Tour updated, hence he would like to share some of the previous posts. Here is the old entry written in New Zealand while FuFu was working parttime picking strawberry in Albany almost two years ago. Wish you guys would still like it. He is now waiting the flight off to Frankfurt, Germany at Bandaranaye International Airport, Colombo, Sri Lanka. **

FuFu Working Holiday
Albany, Aukland, New Zealand
27 December 2007 - 22 January 2008


Gerelja Bros Strawberry Orchard.


Strawberries. Huge, juicy, and sweet.


Yeah, the strawberries FuFu had nicely picked.


Friends were busy picking while FuFu was busy taking pictures.

我二弟去过纽西兰观光哦,你是怎么得到这份工作的呀?做了一个月吧?我感觉是苦差,很消耗体力的。
你有韩日马等联合国的同事,那新加坡的呢?
哈,草莓如果是甜的我就爱吃,带酸的就免了。。。。
无论如何,谢谢你的“礼物”哦,一切顺利!

fufu said...

toto : yeah that was a working holiday visa... valid for 9myhs but i didnt fully utilise it >.< as i need to move on to australia, indonesia, and laos that i had planned... that's my initial travel around the world in a year :) no worries ya and i bet you would love new zealand's strawberry...damn juicy and sweet~ i used to eat the berries while picking them hohohoho... big+fresh+juicy+sweet =p

我好久没上来了,突然间又可以看到fufu去旅行的照片,真的很爽,
我第一次看到草莓原来是这样生长的,
我还蛮山芭的,
草莓是我最喜欢吃的水果之一了,
有人问过我草莓是蔬菜还是水果呢,
我还真的想了一下,不知怎么回答,但听说草莓是蔬菜来的,不过很多人都当它是水果~

I believe everything wrote made a ton of sense.
But, consider this, suppose you wrote a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title that makes people want more? I mean "Strawberry Picking in New Zealand" is kinda plain. You might glance at Yahoo's home page and see
how they create news titles to grab viewers interested.
You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about
what you've got to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
