Pasifika Festival ~15 years~

New Zealand society is culturally diverse. 11% of the population is composed of Pacific Islanders, and in the past 15 years, they have been running the "Pasifika Festival" in Western Spring for annual celebration. The venture was divided into different sections according to the countries. People from Samoa, Niu, Cook Islands, Tonga etc were performing and introducing their distinctive foods. It's great of them not to forget their own roots even they've migrated to another country. I had a great day at the festival, everyone was friendly and the food was nice.





Me with deep fried bread & butter, toffee pudding
and taro leaf desert.

Roasted whole pork.

Little girl wants a bite of pineapple & ice cream :)

親愛的,這照片讓我想到我家人呢,因為我是台灣原住民.紐西蘭的原住民與台灣的原住民,聽說在幾千年前是同一個祖先呢.
還有你可以代我跟那"Chris Richardson"問好嗎,跟他說我是台灣那位高高的Nicole.每次combat時,我都用嘴咬著我的長髮,那樣他就知是誰人了.
告訴他我希望可以在美國再次的見到他,因為我嫁來這了,及代我跟他說我很喜歡他這次在jam內的口指令,很優.我認為他的口指令是目前我認為最強的呢.
對了我是1977年生的,故不知是妹妹還是姊姊.還有你說得是,因為你一頭長髮,故很多人會認為你是日本人,必不怪.cc.
但真開心你是台灣人呢.世界真是小啊.
最後祝你今天很開心哦.
我的好友.
