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.
Introducing Peceli and Wendy. Babasiga (pronounced bambasinga) is the dry land of Macuata in northern Fiji - our place in the sun in Fiji. The town is Labasa and our village is Vatuadova and the beach is Nukutatava. We are part of Wailevu Fijian tribe with relatives in Mali Island and Naseakula village. Peceli was born in Labasa and Wendy is an Australian and today live in Geelong, Australia.
