This is a Samoan "fia fia" dance (video inside)

The Samoan Fia Fia Dance

Fia fias are AMAZING! These are Samoan feasts that include dancing, song and the famous knife-fire dance. Most resorts have them and they vary in performance

These images are from our “winter break” in Samoa last month. We had a slow down in visitor arrivals at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast and used the opportunity to escape from Auckland and head North into warmer weather. The temperatures averaged 30 degrees every day and it was  just wonderful . We hope you Enjoy this video.

Who is Mr Darcy

Today is Mr Darcy’s column. We have a dog on the property. He is a male “Spoodle”. This is a cross from a cocker spaniel and a poodle.
He has the cocker bum which goes from side to side when he is excited to see you and the brains of a poodle. Sometimes a bit too smart !
He is Marlene’s dog and she loves him. He is a small dog and kinda cute……for a dog!
He is 18 months old and has been a welcome addition to the property. I was concerned about the issue of running Eden Park Bed and Breakfast with a resident dog, but so far he has been a treat with the guests. I was surprised one day to see a guest come out to breakfast and then insist on going outside to play with Darcy. Obviously the dog just loves this attention.
We are still full house with the Rugby World Cup 2011 in the country. This weekend we have South Africa v Samoa at North Harbour,Albany and England v Scotland at Eden Park.
Should be lots of face war paint from the various fans.Check out our various U Tube uploads.

The All Blacks play this Saturday

Its Thursday night and the Springboks are playing at North Harbour Stadium. We are full house for accommodation for Eden Park Bed and Breakfast this weekend for the double header at Eden Park. The first game is the All Blacks v France on Saturday and Fiji v Samoa on Sunday. It will be a hell of a weekend and I think Marlene will be exhausted by Monday. Oh yea rugby world cup 2011!!!!
Just have to pretend that it is peak season in Summer !
I am over at North Harbour Stadium tonight doing the mobility service for the game. Very high numbers tonight on Supercare4u.com.
Am surprised as to how many South Africans have emigrated to New Zealand.Cause they all seem to be here tonight! Thankfully the rain has stayed away and the game is being won by the Springboks.

Auckland's top Restaurants offer Terrific food, served with great charm and efficiency in a smart but probably somewhat informal atmosphere.

Brief overview of upcoming events in Auckland City

A short walk from Eden Park makes us the perfect destination for all their sporting fixtures.
