GBS Road Trip New Zealand - 12 | Day 05 : Dunedin : University of Otago | Dunedin Railway Station

Turun dari Signal Hall, kami melilau di bandar Dunedin.

Misi pertama adalah untuk singgah di University of Otago dan melihat kawasan kampusnya. 

Kali ni kami tak menggunapakai khidmat Barbara. 

Hubungan kami kini dingin ! Kemesraaan sudah tiada ertinya lagi. Asmara ini yang hanyutkan kita. Asmara ini yang hanyutkan aku.

* tolak Dato Fazley tepi lombong.

Barbara di rehatkan buat seketika. Dengan hanya berpandukan waze akhirnya kami berjaya sampai di University of Otago. Salah sebuah institusi pengajian tinggi yang tersohor dan tertua di New Zealand ini.

Landmark signage university

The University of Otago (Māori: Te Whare Wānanga o Otāgo) is a public collegiate university located in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand. It scores highly for average research quality, and in 2006 was second only to the University of Auckland in the number of A-rated academic researchers it employs. The university ranks highly in national league table; in the past it has topped the New Zealand Performance Based Research Fund evaluation.

The university was created by a committee, including Thomas Burns, and officially established by an ordinance of the Otago Provincial Council in 1869. The university accepted its first students in July 1871, making it the oldest university in New Zealand and third-oldest in Oceania. Between 1874 and 1961 the University of Otago was a part of the federal University of New Zealand, and issued degrees in its name.

Bangunan Otago University Students' Association

Otago is known for its lively student life, particularly its flatting, which is often in old houses. Otago students (Scarfies) have a long standing tradition of naming their flats. 

The nickname "Scarfie" comes from the habit of wearing a scarf during cold southern winters. The university's graduation song, Gaudeamus igitur, iuvenes dum sumus ("Let us rejoice, while we are young"), acknowledges students will continue to live up to the challenge if not always in the way intended.

Selain daripada menjadi sebuah university terkemuka dunia terutamanya dalam bidang Dentistry dan Medicine, University of Otago ini juga turut menjadi tarikan kerana bangunan Clock Tower yang bersejarah dengan senibina Classical Gothic style.

Bangunan ini telah disiapkan pada tahun 1879.

Kehebatan senibina dan taman taman di sekelilingnya menjadikan Universiti of Otago ini di beri pengiktirafan sebagai salah satu universiti tercantik di dunia oleh penerbitan British, The Daily Telegraph dan The Huffington Post.

Bangunan ini turut juga telah dinobatkan sebagai New Zealand Heritage/Historic Place.

Layan gambaran suasana persekitaran University of Otago di Dunedin ini.

University of Otago

Seperti biasa kalau merayap biasanya aku merayap solo je. Aku tinggalkan je BW dengan IH sebab dia orang akan ambik banyak masa nak poyo-sing di setiap sudut.

Masa merayap tu aku tetiba nak terkencing. Tak tahan tahan dah ni ! Mesti bala sebab keji Barbara dan dia sumpah aku jadi nak terkencing tak tahan.

Cuba masuk dalam bangunan bangunan yang ada tapi semua berkunci. Last sekali jumpa part guard university dan dia suruh pegi ke bangunan library. Berlari aku berlari........ nasib baik tak terkencing dalam seluar !

Kat library ni aku cari gift shop ingat nak sambar t shirt university sehelai dua, tapi tutup pulak ! Hampa !

2 orang alumni dari Malaysia yang mendapat pendidikan di University of Otago ini adalah Tan Sri Dr. Sulaiman Daud, bekas ahli politik dan juga Prof. Datuk Dr. Mazlan Othman, astrophysicist, Director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.

Layan lagi sikit gambar gambar sekitar campus University of Otago ni.

University of Otago

Aku sebenarnya ada personal memory dengan University of Otago ni.

Dulu dulu masa aku muda belia, masa tengah belajar aku ada kenal sorang awek buat medicine di University of Otago NZ ni. Zaman dulu kami cuma berbalas balas email je la sebagai media perhubungan. Lagipun aku di US dia di NZ... Ntah cemana hubungan yang tak berapa nak menjadi tu terputus begitu saja.

Tak tau apa jadi dengan dia. Nama dia pun aku dah lupa ! Ahaks. Tapi nama university dia ni aku ingat. Tak sangka pulak aku boleh datang jejak.

Tak de siapa pun yang harus dipersalahkan. Dah tak de jodoh. Kalau dah ketentuanNya kata pergi... pastinya tak akan sempat termemiliki !


Hold onto love that is what I do now that I've found you.
And from above everything's stinking, they're not around you.

And in the night, I could be helpless,
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex,
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you.

But I'll miss you when you're gone, that is what I do. Hey, baby!
And it's going to carry on, that is what I do. Hey, baby...

Hold onto my hands, I feel I'm sinking, sinking without you.
And to my mind, everything's stinking, stinking without you.

And in the night, I could be helpless,
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex,
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you.

But I'll miss you when you're gone, that is what I do. Hey, baby!
And it's going to carry on, that is what I do. hey, baby...

Sorry. terthrowback lagi......

Selesai berkeliaran di campus University of Otago, kami sebenarnya tunggu BW sebab dia hilang ! Dia masuk library jugak tapi tunggu tak nampak keluar pun. Ke dah apply keje jadi Librarian?

Tercongok la aku dengan IH menunggu tepi jalan. Last last lama sangat, kami cross jalam dan pegi usha Otago Museum yang terletak berhadapan dengan kampus university tadi.

Cuba la cari ada tak Selamat Datang !

Pintu masuk

The Otago Museum is located in the city centre of Dunedin, New Zealand. It is adjacent to the University of Otago campus in Dunedin North, 1,500 metres northeast of the city centre. 

It is one of the city's leading attractions, with over 480,000 visitors each year, and has one of the largest collections in New Zealand. Natural science specimens and humanities artefacts from Otago, New Zealand and the world form the basis for long-term gallery displays, while exhibitions on a wide range of subjects change regularly. An interactive science centre within the Museum includes a large, immersive tropical butterfly rainforest environment.

Kami masuk usha usha. Tengok tengok kena bayar. Tak mahal mana dalam NZD 10. Tapi malas nak masuk !

Ada exhibition pasal Planetarium

Tunggu BW tak nampak nampak lagi, kami pegi Book Store jap. Ingat nak cari merchandise tapi tak di jual !

Sampai sudah tak nampak bayang BW. Dah hilang kena culik kah?

Last sekali kami pegi ke tempat parking kereta tengok tengok dia still tak de. Patah balik cari kat library semula rupa rupanya dia tengah bertenggek kat situ.

Aiyo............. Dia tunggu kita orang kononnya tapi tunggu kat pintu lain. Mereput la kat situ nasib baik tak naik teritip.

Dari kawasan campus University of Otago, kami ke Dunedin Railway Station.

Sama seperti bangunan Clock Tower yang kami lawati sebelum ni, di bangunan Station Keretapi Dunedin ini juga turut termasuk dalam senarai Heritage New Zealand berdasarkan senibina dan sejarah pembinaannya.

Bangunan Dunedin Railway Station dengan clock tower tersergam indah

Dunedin Railway Station in Dunedin on New Zealand's South Island, designed by George Troup, is the city's fourth station. 

It earned its architect the nickname of "Gingerbread George".

Bangunan station keretapi Dunedin

Construction began in 1903 and the station was officially opened in 1906. 

Dunedin's fourth railway station, it was designed in the fashionable, desirable and highly expensive Edwardian Baroque style. Unusually though, architect George Troup uses an experimental collaboration of Classical and Neo-Gothic imagery, which creates a grand and classically regimented structure, with an assorted and asymmetric countenance.
