My name is Merlin Xing and I graduated from AIS in August 2017, major in Hospitality Management.

I can say that during my study from 2016 to 2017, I harvested a lot from AIS.

New Zealand In Me – Running for Exploring Auckland

February 7, 2018 |

#NZinme – mini-blog contest (by Sisilia Pujiastuti)

New Zealand is famous for its natural beauty. That was one of the reasons I came to this country. I’m currently studying Postgraduate Diploma of Business Administration (PGDBA) at Auckland Institute of Studies, New Zealand.

Beating the streets of Auckland helps to explore new places

BMW virtual running event: This month, I joined BMW virtual running event, in which all participants can run wherever they are, record it by a run tracking application and then submit it to the event application. This event gave me an idea to explore Auckland, the city where I live today by running. I need to run 125km, which I have to reach for the duration of January 28th to March 4th. I can run anywhere, with minimum distance of 1 km I can submit in the application and the amount will be accumulated.

An opportunity to explore the city: As a student with a part-time job, I have been too busy and do not have many opportunities to explore the city. To reach 125km I have a chance to always run to different destinations. I collected the addresses of some friends and listed them in my running list. I will reach the finish line with a great experience, visit some new places and meet good friends.
