There is a pink mao mao (rare colour variety) in Coastal Fishes of NZ an ID guide by Malcom Francis that shows almost identical colour and morphology to this fish.

The text description is "A rare colour variety has black markings on rear of dorsal fin and upper back, and lines of yellow spots on face and upper front part of body; all fins yellow except dorsal, and all have blue margins or blue tips except pectoral."

Sounds and looks like your fish.
