So what are you waiting for?!
I arrived in Auckland on 03/21 and started to look for a job, searching online. I saw an ads for apple picker on suitcasehome and I TXT the contact person. He rang and told me there was a vacancy for onion grader, much suitable for girls. So I took it and booked a bus ticket on nakedbus from Auckland to Waipawa. I left Auckland at 7:30 a.m. and reached Waipawa at 7:50 p.m. and the supervisor of the onion packinghouse picked me up. After a long journey, I had a sound sleep in the dormitory that provided by the factory owner. My first seasonal job as an onion grader began on 03/27, just picking out stones, rotten and damaged onions from the good ones No WIFI and weak signal indoor for call, which disappointed me. The rent was $100 per week and 4-6 persons per room. I stayed there for two weeks and enjoyed life with those guys good at cooking. We had parties at weekends, sharing food like Sushi, Indian noodles, Pasta and chicken rice, etc. Nice natural beauty there. http://www.suitcasehome.com/forum.php http://nakedbus.com/nz/bus/
