Dora John Cecil: Cooks dancer supports J-Lo

Saturday 22 February 2020 | Published in Letters to the Editor

What a great inspiration you will be to many; I love reading stories like this as I’m a proud Cookie (“Michael Metuakore dancing with the stars”, Feb 8). I am so proud of you as will be many. I think any Cook Islander who goes outside the box is very inspiring – who would have thought? You, that’s who. You made it through – congratulations. I’m sure somewhere along the way we will be related, especially on our Marsters side. William Marsters is my three greats grandfather on my dad’s side, aue! You are so right about the Cook Islands capital of New Zealand, TOKZ, Love and light to you, God bless. Shine on all the way from Mangere, Akarana. Kia orana e kia manuia, Dora John Cecil --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I always believed you could do it, and I hoped for nothing but the best for you, as you are a beautiful soul both inside and out. So happy and proud of your achievements. Good luck for your future accomplishments. Not sure if you remember me, teacher aide in your maths class, when you came to Forest View High School. Always following what is happening and where you going, so proud and pleased for you. Arohanui, Lorraine (Lucky) Stowers

Thursday 20 February 2020 | Published in Art

Seafood and shellfish can have delicate flesh so our cooking methods vary, but they can be cooked in so many ways. Flavours and methods of cookery from around the world have been introduced and have influenced our menus, dining experiences, preferences and expectations.

Thursday 20 February 2020 | Published in Letters to the Editor
