Yea man. Sometimes just queueing also 1 hour edi lol.
No baggage also have to hope that there's no queue at he customs. Quite a few times I've seen travelers asking if they can cut the queue or some having to make calls to reschedule their flights.
I think many people make this mistake that they didn't allow for time to clear customs before checking in to connecting flights. The key is always check where you need to do this before hand and allow more time.
Honestly, it is so much better nowadays. Sometimes I got through with just 15 minutes. Sometimes you are just unlucky that a huge plane just landed before you. Not so long ago, they used to check everyone who arrives. Now not so much. Australia was much worst too just few years ago, until people made noise and they changed to just get the dogs to sniff at your luggage now.

Anyone rent car? Do u all take the excess? It is calculate per day n quite pricy. Any advise?
Please use the search function. I have talked about this before. All rental cars are covered with comprehensive insurance. Understand what is insurance and what excess means, then you will know whether you need it. I have never taken them, but I am a risk taker. So it depends on your risk appetite.

Hi bro, since you have experience in staying & working in NZ, do u mind to share with me how tough is it to find a job in NZ? Feeling like wanna migrate there.
NZ is like a migrant heaven, provided that you have the right skills. It is much easier if you are a professional, ie. engineer, accountant, doctor, IT architect, etc. Auckland has the most opportunities but also the most competitive and maybe the most expensive to live in. Wellington and Christchurch have plenty of opportunities too, because less people want to live there, so more chances for you.
It is not all green patches there. One big issue there is housing. House prices have gone up so much in the recent years that most working class can only afford to rent. Don't think that you earn more so you can afford. Look at the rental rates. You won't have much savings left after you pay for rental. On top of that you still need to save for minimum 20% downpayment. People can only afford a house when they retire.
