Mothers Day dinner in Footscray

from w
I know there's a contradiction here from the last post about Burma but that's the nature of our lives, a bundle of contradictions knowing there is poverty and injustice but we still continue with our own celebrations such as Mothers Day.

Yesterday we had dinner with Sailosi Koto's family and Leba at the Hong Kong Barbecue Restaurant in Footscray. It was very crowded and the food was delicious. It was one of the few shops that had an English name as this part of Footscray in Melbourne is full of Chinese/Vietnamese shops. Usually for Mothers Day Fijian women dress in white and lead the Sunday worship but this year it was different in Altona Meadows as the Pentecost/Mothers Day worship was organised by the English speaking congregation. In the photos are Sailosi, Tau, Leba, Mere, Elizabeth, Peceli and me.
