A Fijian Twenty-first birthday

from w
Last night we had a wonderful party here in our home and back yard for Epa (Abraham) who celebrated his twenty-first birthday. About sixty people gathered - from rugby clubs, workmates, family friends, church, Fiji Geelong Friendship Club for a lovo dinner. The teenage boys Jordan, Andrew and Jhiah looked after the music and there was even a small swimming pool to cool off as the weather here in Geelong has been so very hot for over a week. Anyway it was a balmy tropical night and we had a good time, I think some still celebrating at 5 a.m. today! It's good to keep up some Fijian traditions even for the Fiji diaspora people like our extended family.
