Kiwi's 12 Days of Easter - a song to get you humming http://www.lookafterme.co.nz/article/kiwis-12-days-of-easter-a-song-to-get-you-humming At Look After Me - NZ's Homestay Network, we're getting into the spirit of Easter in a very special way. Meet 'Sharon' - a typical Kiwi girl trying to book somewhere for Easter.

From Roto-Vegas to Nazareth and back again http://www.lookafterme.co.nz/article/from-roto-vegas-to-nazareth-and-back-again The future of NZ theatre is in talented hands.

Complimented by creative choreography, superb lighting, symphonic musical score and authentic costumes – it was provocatively entertaining.
