Me and my friends would perform the Hakka in the middle of Cathedral Square to celebrate our arrival in the land of long white cloud, New Zealand.

Ka mate, ka mate! ka ora! ka ora!
Ka mate! ka mate! ka ora! ka ora!
Tēnei te tangata pūhuruhuru
Nāna nei i tiki mai whakawhiti te rā
Ā, upane! ka upane!
Ā, upane, ka upane, whiti te ra!

2. Raphael Las Marias

I’ll spend a 24 hour adventure with my friends starting with a early morning hot-air balloon ride to catch the sunrise. Then we’ll board a helicopter to Hanmer Springs to bungy jump from the historic Waiau bridge, and then soak at the thermal pools after. Heli back to town to drive a Russian T-55 Battle Tank with Tanks for Everything. After which, we’d rent Harley Davidson motorcycles and drive to Methven to experience the freefalling adrenaline rush of tandem skydiving. Back on the ground, we’ll cruise to Mt. Hutt for skiing and snowboarding. Then, do a late night drive to Mt John Observatory and watch planets and star clusters from their enormous telescopes. After making our wishes upon the stars, we’ll head down to Christchurch Casino to try our luck at poker and the slot machines. Finally, we’ll stroll to Sumner to wind down, have a hot choco at the beach and savor the final moments of the most adventurous 24 hours of our lives made possible by Air Asia.

Congratulation! All winners will be contacted individually for the prize redemption.
