I think you'll find in NZ, assuming you find a job, that most of your money goes on living there so don't expect to have bundles of cash to spend in Asia.

I actually found that I managed to save a lot in NZ, and I wasn't earning a huge wage. I think it's much easier to save in NZ than it is in the UK, where I always seem to be skint! I think it's easier to get by on a small amount in NZ; everyone has different experiences though I guess.
