I know some of you might be wondering - where are the videos? Well, I beg you to be just a little bit more patient. We have so many videos to upload, all thanks to our video man ('Isa'ake jr) - thanks 'Ake! And at the moment, Poini and I are working together wiith the team here to upload them or to find the best way to do it as they will need quite a bit of space. But you should start watching them here sooner rather than later, in the coming days hopefully.

This is where you'd find 'Akata and Seini Rea right throughout the reunion - kitchen! Miss those topai, heuheu & keke!


Last but not least, allow me to wish a fairly "young" couple who mean a lot to me, Toni & Seini Rea, HAPPY 40TH ANNIVERSARY ON THEIR WEDDING. I know that you've all managed to celebrate it already in Auckland before the Bundy Tribe and the Matahau Tribe departed from there, but from me and all of us here and elsewhere who bear the name of Fatai & 'Ekuasi, Happy Anniversary Toni & Seini. Now I wish I am there myself so that I could take you Seini to the Casino (oops, bad idea! we'll think of something else).'Ofa atu kia kimoua he 'aho ni moe lotu, Your bro Tavo mei 'Iulope mama'o

The two lovebirds Toni and Seini on their Wedding Day 40 years ago (10 January 1974). Ad multos annos!
