I surprised them by Dancing also Singing with the MAORI

MAMA looked so Smart : PAPA was very DAPPA

And my Dress was soft & silky : like a SARI !


I surprised them by Dancing also Singing with the MAORI

I swung the POI and banged the floor with STICKS

And my Dress was soft & silky like a SARI

They had only seen the MAORI in the Flicks !

YESTERDAY the MAORI gave Reception for MAMA & for PAPA !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡


I should explain that I have been in AUCKLAND : NEW ZEALAND

for a YEAR : On a Work Exchange at the Hospital as a 

PHYSIOTHERAPIST !  Because My PAPA is Spanish I blend in very

well with the MAORI CHOIR & DANCING GROUP.  I have five Physio

Trainees working under ME who are all MAORI !  Because of this

I am well integrated with the MAORI and the HANGI (Reception)

was to thank ME for embracing their CULTURE and training their

Daughters in what they consider a very important Profession !

They are a very MOBILE Race !  Love to All : ANGELA 🧡 🧡 🧡

      Wow some event - great write Angela.

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        Thanks UNCLE MIKE : The KIWI*S thought We must be very Special for the MAORI to be giving a HANGI in our HONOUR ! We felt very humbled ! I cried when I thanked them on behalf of MAMA & PAPA and I told them how much I loved their CULTURE and how I had embraced it the first Day I landed in NZ. I told them how much BRIAN had encouraged ME to embrace their Unique Culture. The MEN did a HAKA to welcome us and after the HONGI : rubbing noses : they presented us with Shell Necklaces and declared us Honorary Maori. PAPA presented the Elders with a case of Vintage Rioja which was well received. Yes it was an unforgettable event. My Students were very gracious in their tribute too : and said they didnt want me to go Home because the Department would be much less Jolly & Beautiful without SENORITA ANGELA : I cried again and wished BRIAN could have been here to see His Maori Dream : for Me : fullfilled !

        BLESSINGS & LOVE to You & Yours
        Yours : ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

        • Fay Slimm.

          An event to remember dear Angela - - no doubt your parents were very surprised at your own performance but of course delighted I am sure.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            THANKS FAY : Its now 8am Sunday and I back in the land of the Living again after a good nights sleep. Sailing / Cruising is very healthy but it does make one SLEEP ! This morning we are Going to The Catholic Cathedral and they have planned a BBQ For MAMA & PAPA and other Visitors from the UK & elsewhere ! We will have a LAMB ROAST on Spits just like they have HOG ROASTS in the UK ! I was very well brought up Academically (English Public School) Socially : encouraged to learn to Speak in Public : to Dance : and Play the Piano : and unerstand Wine ! Spiritually : I was brought up a Devout Catholic so I have a strong Faith. Brian is an Evangelical and my Parents are Happy for me to attend His Church and be Married in his Church because it is very Fundemental with a belief in the Virgin Birth : The Trinity and the Importance of Holy Communion etc. I try in every way to honour and please my Parents : Their Love for Me is INFINITE as is their Love for BRIAN : AMEN. Pleased you enjoyed my Presentation : AMEN

            Blessings & Love & Joy
            Yours as always : ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

            They honor you, as you honor them, captured here in words to remember

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Thanks SURESH : Pleased You enjoyed and appreciated My Presentation. In Spanish Culture and in Catholic Culture FAMILY is very very important ! The PAPA & The MAMA are equally revered and respected : but they play different ROLES. The PAPA is the Patriarch and the Breadwinner for His Family and sets an example as a CABALLERO : A Gentleman. LA MAMA ES LA REINA DE LA CASA (Queen of the House !). MAMA provides a HOME and FOOD etc ! My Parents LOVE Me & HONOUR Me (and Brian) Infinitely : And Our LOVE & HONOUR for them is Infinite in return : AMEN

              Blessings & Peace & Joy
              Your Friend : ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

              Super event Angela, you are obviously totally accepted in the Maori culture, a credit to you. I wish all cultures could accept each other, the world would be a wonderful place if that happened.
