New Zealand Christmas Tree 'Pohutukawa Tree'

This post is specially for Heather who commented on my last post regarding New Zealand Christmas Tree call 'Pohutukawa', also ask me did I visit Sky City.
Coincidence last two days while I was visiting one of the park in Auckland I manage to capture a picture of this Pohutukawa Tree and as today I was nearby Sky city, I also manage to took a picture of the Sky Tower.
Just like in Japan Spring there have Sakura and NZ December you can see this Pohutukawa bloming everyhere.To me is just like our Malaysian Rambutan friut tree.
Pohutukawa tree just beautiful

Hi 9394,

Thanks for the post!!! You made me feel so honoured and you made my day! :) Your photography skills is not bad!!! I've never seen anyone take a Sky City pic like that before!

Anyway, have you been to the "No" Tree Hill, Mt Albert, Rangitoto Island, Newmarket, Harbour Bridge, America's Cup Village yet? Do you have plans to travel out of Auckland? (Maybe to Northland, Taupo, Rotorua, Wellington, and South Island?)

Well, I hope you will enjoy your stay in NZ and don't forget to eat plenty of oysters, mussels, kiwifruits, fish & chips while you are there. ^_^

Cheers,
Heather

Hi 9394,

Yeah, I miss the Death by Chocolate at Mission Bay. The desserts (especially the chocolate flavour ones) there are so irresistible.

By the way, I'm in my office now. ;)

Cheers,
Heather
