New commander takes the helm By JODEAL CADACIO The navy's Anzac frigate Te Kaha has a new com- manding officer, Com- mander Jonathan Beads- moore. He took over from Commander Mathew Williams during a change of command cer- emony led by the chief of navy, Rear Admiral Tony Parr. The ceremony is tra- ditionally formal and impressive, designed to strengthen the respect for authority which is vital to any military organisation. The formal turnover took place when Com- mander Williams said: You have the ship'' and Commander Beadsmoore replied: I have the ship.'' Born in England, Com- mander Beadsmoore joined the Royal Navy in 1985 and attended the Britannia Royal Naval College. His first sea deploy- ment was in 1990 as sig- nal communications officer on the frigate Cumberland. In 1993, he qualified as a fighter controller and served with the air defence destroyer New- castle until 1994. During this period, the ship was involved in embargo operations against the former Yugoslavia. He rose to become the commander of the mine hunter Walney for two years before moving to New Zealand in 2005. Food for your body and soul! We've come a long way fast in our appreciation of new food and healthy lifestyle choices. Not long ago we would have thought sushi, acu- puncture or even herbal teas as very strange con- cepts, but not any more. We are eager to try new things and to embrace them. Which brings us to a fascinating new restaurant in Albany which combines New Zealanders' favour- ite Chinese cuisine with some very old, traditional dishes that have amazing health properties. King's Restaurant opened in Albany, near the Mega Centre, in April of last year. King's Restaurant in Albany features two menus, the first being full of your favourite dishes like Peking Duck, Sizzling King Prawns, Beef in Black Pepper Sauce, along with sweet'n'sours and stir- fried dishes -- with NO MSG added. The second is the unique aspect of King's Res- taurant. It introduces to Kiwi diners the traditional Stew Soups and Steam Rice dishes, prepared in the same earthenware dishes that have been used for centuries. They combine your favourite tastes like chicken or quail, lamb or pork with healthy herbs such as gin- seng, ji song rong, angelica or shi hu. Each has its own medicinal properties -- ginseng is recognised as having universal benefits for body and mind; ji song rong is known as god's mushroom' for its properties to protect the immune system; angelica is great for digestion and shi hu recom- mended for healthy skin. These dishes, prepared as soup stews (taking sev- eral hours to prepare and made daily in advance) or steam rice in a casserole-type bowl or a tall cask steamer, are designed to bring balance and harmony to your body and mind -- as the menu says, fit for a king, good for the soul''. King's Restaurant is full licensed and open 7 days from 11am to 11pm for lunch and dinner. Takeaway menu available. Shop 9, South Tower, 5-7 Corinthian Drive, Albany. Phone 444-4448.
