Travel: What time is that? @ NZ, Paihia (Answer & Update)

Now a little quiz just for fun ... What time do you think this photo was taken? Taken at NZ, Paihia in Dec 2005. Cheers!

Answer: 9pm NZT


Can you imagine this is 6:30pm NZT??!!!

And this one is 8:39pm NZT :)
Actually it works to our advantage. More daylights means we have more time to go around. When we drove back at 6pm, it still looks like sunny afternoon! :)

I agree with foodcrazee, with the lights in the houses on, it's probably night-time and knowing that slurp! will try to pull a fast one on us, I'll say it's late at night even though it may look like it's early evening :)

andrian,
most of short trips, the NZ being the longer one to make the most out of air ticket (it's expensive!) :P budget airlines makes travelling much more affordable, of coz if you want to stay in 5stars luxury, then that's a different story.

wp, 6:45AM, nah .... couldn't be, I'm still ZZ-land ;P

foodcrazee, no midnight sun there leh ...

cath, close, too bad you didn't try putting in any figures ...

Boy, was I ever wrong! I didn't believe that New Zealand would be far down enough to have the same twenty-two hour daylight effect as Alaska or the Nordic countries do during the Northern hemisphere's summer.
