Birthday for a babasiga kid
A long time ago, a babasiga kid was born at Ba Mission Hospital - that time we were living in Rakiraki and Peceli was the talatala/padre in the Indian Division of the Methodist Church. Those days in Ra were beautiful times, visiting families in the canefields or around the sugar mill. June 4th, a special day. Best wishes George.
Babasiga (pronounced bambasinga) is the dry land of Macuata in northern Fiji - our place in the sun in Fiji. Peceli is from Fiji from the village is Vatuadova and the beach is Nukutatava. Peceli Ratawa passed away on 27th December 2015 so this is Wendy's blog now. Wendy is an Australian and today live in Geelong, Australia.
