Food from Northern Laos: The Boat Landing Cookbook

Robyn Eckhardt’s review of Dorothy Culloty‘s book Food from Northern Laos: The Boat Landing Cookbook.

If the cuisine of Laos is little known outside the country, then the cooking of Luang Namtha, its northernmost region, is all but invisible. That may change if the slim, richly illustrated “Food From Northern Laos: The Boat Landing Cookbook,” (Galangal Press, 2010) by New Zealanders Kees Sprengers and Dorothy Culloty gets the attention it deserves.

Submerged Histories: stories underlying Lake Karapiro

In 1947, layers of history disappeared beneath the water’s surface of the newly formed Lake Karapiro. Life changed radically for the people whose lives were defined by the waterway.

See this fascinating exhibition of historical photographs lovingly preserved by those who worked and lived along the stretch of the Waikato River now known as Lake Karapiro.

Waipa District Council Local Elections 2010 Cambridge Ward

Judy Bannon one of 12 candidates for the 4 Cambridge Ward seats

Twelve candidates; four positions. This is hard work. The audience filling Cambridge Baptist Church this Sunday afternoon is great – though, I do feel one or two of the questions from the floor are set pieces. I think it is candidate Michael Blake who makes the comment or perhaps this should read plea – obviously not aimed at those in attendance – to get out and vote and encourage others to do the same – well, stay in and vote as this is a postal ballot. I’m all for this. The Waipa District Council Election Statistics are not good.

I have a rough idea what Future Proof is; a ‘vision’ with a website (which you or I can consult if it takes our fancy – but no idea what Shore Features is. Any ideas?

I am posting this now – 10:00 20/9/2010 (I will be adding some thoughts about the candidates and issues soonish).

Photo: The speaker is Judy Bannon one of the 12 Candidates offering their services for the 4 positions for the Cambridge Ward of the Waipa District Council.

Mōrena mai roto Karapiro, Waipa, Waikato, Te Ika a Maui


Karapiro on the TV this morning, but, I’m not quite sure why here in weather forecast terms is Kirikiriroa. Kirikiriroa aka Hamilton is a good 25 kms away downstream or north-west – take your pick – must have something to do with the concept main centre – we know better of course. Impressed with the use of Te Reo in naming the rohe – I have this feeling I’m missing something here – I mean this is breakfast television.

Lake Karapiro – Don Rowlands Centre

Mock HDRI or a fluke? It does look the part – though, don’t look too closely! I quite like the building, but have yet to get a real handle on it. It does have a quiet presence which suits it’s place in the world, sitting as it is, alongside a large body of water. For some reason this photograph reminds me of some stylish 1950s American house and garden magazine illustration or perhaps an advertisment in National Geographic of similar vintage.

Matthew Harms – NZIDRS – MEIT

American PhD (Cultural Anthropology) student and New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarships (NZIDRS) recepient Matthew Harms – has a blog at Kiwi Chronicles. Here is a run down of what he’s up to – (from the 2009 NZIDRS recipient list).

Matthew HARMS – University of Waikato (Cultural Anthropology)
The community based Maungatautari Ecological Island project (MEIT) has since 2002, fenced a 3400 hectare montane area, removed non-native mammalian pests, and reintroduced native biota. From an anthropological standpoint, the project’s success likely comes from a degree of collaboration among the community’s Maori and Pakeha members. Matthew proposes to build upon his Masters research into the sociocultural and historical factors associated with New Zealand’s community based conservation, and will investigate the actual influence of these factors and the extent of biculturalism attained in the MEIT project. He intends to conduct fieldwork while living in the Waipa district to perform project volunteer work that will permit conversational interviewing and discussion with community/project members in a connected, mutually-beneficial relationship. In addition, he plans to highlight key findings by comparing the factors of the MEIT community and project to those at work in an aptly parallel (postcolonial, Polynesian minority) Hawaii.

Not a sport video or an art work – rather an exercise in editing using Windows Movie Maker. The timing begins with the first riders and notes the time lapse – approximately – of those following. The race, the Maunga Cycle Challenge, captured with the Canon G10 as it passes through the intersection of Lamb Street and Carlyle StreetRoto-o-Rangi Road on the boundary of Leamington and Pukekura.

Eco-island staff face the axe

From the Waikato Times / Stuff

The trust which oversees the Maungatautari Ecological Island appears to be in major shake-up mode.

The organisation’s four paid staff face the axe, one trustee has resigned in protest over how it has been handled and its chief excutive is “totally disappointed”.

For reasons I have not pursued Waipa District held eDay 2009 last weekend when as far I can see everyone else is holding it tomorrow. Not a particularly great idea when the nationwide publicity is poor to patchy at best. So it will be a trip to Hamilton tomorrow.

Time: 9am to 3pm (e-waste will not be accepted outside these times)

Venue: Habitat for Humanity ReStore, 29 Bryant Road, Te Rapa, Hamilton
