  1. Hello again Shanya!

    Wow, I started reading your blogs yesterday and I still haven't caught up!

    Great interview. Is Racheal you friend? Bula Vanaka is the way to say Hello in Fijian, but you probably already knew that.

    Keep up the great work!


  2. Hi Mrs, Barlow

    Racheal is actually my mother and to translate bula vinaka is "Hello everyone". Vinaka is thankyou.

    1. Mrs Barlow??? I became a married woman overnight and nobody told me?! haha!

      Mrs - married woman
      Miss/Ms - single woman
      Mr - married or single man

      Are you Fijian? One of my very best friends if Fijian. Her name if Vilomena, but her family calls her Dolly haha!

      I hope you're having a great day!



  3. Hi Shanya,

    It's quite special to see that your mom has the same name as your interim teacher and me - Rachel (although the spelling is a bit different). It sounds like you mom really enjoys life in New Zealand, particularly as a result of the great education system that we have here. I, too, love the education system here in New Zealand. I was born and raised in Canada so I didn't go to primary school here but my son, Aronui, is in Year 2 (this year) and he goes to primary school in Epsom. He loves it!

    This year I am actually hoping to take Aronui to Fiji on holiday. Would you or your mom have any recommendations about where we should go or what we should do/see?

    Hope to hear from you soon :)
