The Royal Easter Show

On Saturday, i went to the Royal Easter Show at Green Lane, Epsom, Auckland. Not really far from Grafton, the place where i live. it took about 15 mins - 20 mins bus journey + walking to the showground. the showground was huge and i didn't know where to start. so i used the event schedule. there were so many things happened simultaneously so, event schedule was really needed.

we arrived there pretty early and the performers performed really good coz u know, it's early so they had so much energy to show off...haha. and most importantly, the live stock judging was also in the morning, so i didn't miss it.

The royal easter show had its beginning 166 years ago, beginning as a purely agricultural event to help the fledgling colony develop a sound farming economy. The first show was held in 1843. The aims of the event were to demonstrate excellence in agriculture and animal husbandry, and to promote the breeding of stud animals to establish and increase the farm animal gene pool in the emerging colony. the ticket was quite cheap too.. $12 for students.

the kiwi lumberjack show. they are the real people who do the logging in the forest. some from canada, america and new zealand.

livestock judging. i like the cow so much! so clean!

asian lamb? huhu

the funky monkey...

this is alpaca, the sheared one. so alpaca and llama are two different animals. The llama is roughly twice the size of the alpaca and the llama has a very coarse outer coat over a softer inner coat as opposed to the alpaca which has a very fine, single coat.

the circus. very fun! i was expecting for lion, tiger of something like that, but there was none.

cadbury international magic show. completely lies.. 

that makcik has turned into donkey! and she deserved it!



another type of alpaca. surico if i'm not mistaken. it's so smooth, and most importantly not smelly. at all!

and that day i learned about types of pig. i found three there.
