"Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable, let's prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all" Douglas Adams

Saturdays entertainment

Tonight we had dinner at the Buddhist Temple in Flat Bush in Auckland,

Each year they hold a dinner that is for all of the volunteers.  A couple of my family go there so for the past couple of years we've made a family outing of it.  We also get entertained.  

Chinese lantern dance

Tonight amongst others there were some chinese dancers, a babershop quartet, and a jazz group from a local school. 

Kapa Haka Group
There was a great Kapa Haka group, and seeing them do the Haka outside the Main Shrine seemed to be at odds with each other which made it even more entertaining :-D

The Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple It has a great tea shop and I recommend the Lotus flower tea, and if you visit during the day very often you can walk around the gardens, visit the gallery and go and have a look around the main shrine.
