Cake tester, gui­tarist and art lover

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE -

Prin­ci­pal by day and cake tester, well, when­ever he can. We chat with ‘‘Mr U.’’

Play­ing gui­tar - av­er­agely. Eat­ing cake - ex­pert!

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPE­CIAL TAL­ENTS?

Yes I aman ex­pert cake grader. I grade all man­ner of cakes where needed. I just need sam­ples dropped off and I’ll get back to you.

IF YOU COULD IN­VITE THREE PEO­PLE TO DIN­NER - LIV­ING OR DEAD - WHO WOULD THEY BE?

Matisse, Mia and their­mum On­dine - Why? Be­cause I love them more than life.

FAVOURITE PLACE IN PORIRUA?

My house

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SU­PER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?

To fix the answer be­low with the click of your fingers!

WHAT SCARES YOU?

Kids not reach­ing their po­ten­tial. And worse - kids with po­ten­tial set­tling for nehh! Also, so­ci­etal is­sues out of con­trol.

WHOWOULD PLAY YOU IN THE MOVIE ABOUT YOUR LIFE?

Well I’d like for ‘The Rock’ to but he’s busy (and skinny) so I would gladly set­tle for lo­cal he­roes Tofiga or Dave Fane!

WHATWAS YOUR HIGH­LIGHT OF 2016?

Ap­point­ing a dy­na­mite DP & AP team and a solid ERO re­sult.

WHAT THREE THINGS WOULD YOU TAKE IF YOU WERE GO­ING TO BE STRANDED ON A DESERT IS­LAND?

A wa­ter pu­ri­fier, a hom­ing de­vice and flint.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOL­I­DAY LO­CA­TION?

There’s this paint­ing called, ‘‘Ren­dezvous on Ru du Mont Ce­nis.’’ It’s by a Rus­sian mod­ern day con­tem­po­rary artist named Evgeny Lush­pin and is a beau­ti­ful scene on these fa­mous (sort of) steps in Mont­martre, Paris.

In the paint­ing there’s a cou­ple meet­ing in the mid­dle of the steps in the rain un­der um­brel­las - hence the name!

Now, not that I want to spend a hol­i­day go­ing up and down steps, but if you take the time to look at the artist’s im­pres­sion, how could you not want to ren­dezvous on a rainy night in Paris with a loved one?

Un­til then, the equally pret­ti­ful but in a dif­fer­ent way - Te Anau.
