Packing for South-East Asia, Australia and New Zealand

Okay so I'm off for a little over 3 months today. I'm flying to Abu Dhabi as you're reading! I was originally going to bring a Backpack but due to having my gallbladder removed I can't hold a lot of weight on my back for a few months, so I went and purchased this Roxy Suitcase. It's a decent size, is easily accessible and hard wearing. It's also cute, which is a plus side! I'd awful trouble with the case coming so I'd suggest not ordering online and getting it in store!
When I was trying to pack I didn't have a clue what to do so I decided to write a post of what I'm packing in case anyone out there is as clueless as me. When I'm home I'll do a revised version but I'm trying to take as little as possible with me. South-East Asia is going to be the hottest, Australia is going to be hot too, but New Zealand looks to be a little colder so I'm going to have a wisely pack for all eventualities!
