day 15 was the day that we didn’t do anything. that morning, together with diman, i sent companion #4 back to avis, it was a pleasure being intimate with her even it was only for a day. initially, the plan was to rent the car for 3 days, visiting mt. taranaki and spending the night at new plymouth, some 250 km southwest of hamilton but i had to cancel it as the itineraries were too jam packed and decided to occupy the last remaining days in new zealand only at hamilton. it also saved us a few dollars.
when i got back to carrington ave. with diman around 9:00 am, most of them were still deep in their sleep and i just resorted to watch some tv programmes with some channels in maori, updates on the current world cup results and watching music videos. i had my breakfast, couldn’t remember what i ate, except that it was delicious. although it was not a memorable day per se, but one thing that struck me was that i was introduced by diman to a pretty interesting music video by an australian band, the temper trap, which i continued to appreciate their music even to this day. here’s the video:
other than that, i slept again during noon and only woke when lunch was ready. i only went out of the house once more in the evening, with elias and alif, walking about 50m south to the nearest grocery store at masters ave., to buy some chocolate bars, dr. pepper and a gummy ball for alif and luckily got a plastic diecast doc hudson of pixar’s cars fame inside it. i also went to the backyard quite a lot, befriending the neighbour’s cat, smoking and getting impressed with kak maz’s self nurtured broccolis and strawberries. that night after dinner, most of us were quite sad as that night was our last night in new zealand. we cherished the night by sitting on the sofa and the floor, remisniscing about our short time when we were there. all of us went to bed early as we would be having a long and tiring day on the following day.

revisiting this poignant and emotionally powerful song from the unique songstress.
i knew a movie once, called once, a 2006 little sleeper movie which i considered as one of the most beautifully honest film about love and hope. another chance encounter with one of the outstanding soundtracks today exudes a non stop rotation in my mind that i need to click that damn “add new post” here to liberate those accumulated emotions. 🙂
and the series will be back on june the 8th.
in the meantime, you can watch this instead:
one of the most hauntingly beautiful and timeless piece by sigur rós, taken from their live dvd, heima. its intense and melancholic sound always bring out the fragile psyche in me, just to remind me of how unimportant i am in the grand scheme of things.
in lieu of visiting a sea stack somewhere in malaysia, this pic, taken in june 2010 was another sea stack that i was initially introduced and subsequently captivated by the intro scene to the 2008 disney movie, the chronicles of narnia: prince caspian.
here’s the scene, at the 2:20 mark:
cathedral cove, with its maori name te whanganui-a-hei which means the great bay of hei.
