I've planned the trip back in October 2015 under Frozenlite Ventures, with a strategic collaboration with Ahmad Caravan, a reputable Malaysian-based travel agent with recognition by the New Zealand's tourism authority.
The trip began on 28 August 2016 until 9 September 2016, covering 2,548km in the South Island, New Zealand. Some of us took the KUL-AKL-CHC route, while others took the KUL-SYD-CHC way. All the participants were required to arrive in Christchurch one day earlier.
The trip's mission patch was designed by El'Arief Mohd Khair.
Two motorhomes were rented and codenamed:
1. Nur Ismail Mohammed (Tour Leader/driver)
2. El'Arief Mohd Khair (driver)
3. Ibnu Al-Kurauwi (passed away in December 2016)
4. Mawardi Bahar
1. Amir Bakhtiar Abdul Razak (driver)
2. Haamirisyuan Aidil Morzailan (driver)
3. Dr. Ng Qui Hin
4. Fadhlur Rahman Abd Raffar ("Badz")
