The Retell of The Bill

There was once a boy named Jamie. He thought he deserved money from his mother for just the little jobs he did, so he sends her a bill.

The only problem is that Jamie doesn’t have enough money for his game, so that’s why he sent his mum the bill.

Jamie’s mum sends Jamie a bill for the things that she does, but the amount of money for all chores are $0. Her message is that even though Jamie does jobs for her, she does more important ones, and Jamie doesn’t need to pay her.

As always, the story finishes happily, with Jamie saying followed by another letter to his mum. That told her to give the same bill to his dad. He also said that if the toy store had another sale, then he’d get his mum some things to put on her face.

The PEPA Performance

Copy this link to watch PEPA Highlights from our concert!:

Being talented is amazing. But being able to inspire others is even better. I hope that I achieved that goal after my PEPA (Pt England Performing Arts) journey, and here it is.

It was around 1:15 when I left to go and get ready for the extravagant show that was yet to come. Running with excitement, I ran into the music room with my friends.

After getting dressed, I was ready to dance for the community and school. " RIIIIIIIIIIIIINGGGGGG!!!", the bell went. It was show time. Sitting down in the music room, my heart was beating twice as fast than usual. We all sat down, anxiously waiting to hear the crowd to walk in to hall.

I suddenly heard the sound of the smoke machine. It sounded like a fire extinguisher though. I heard Tokorima’s voiceover playing in the hall. “BOOM, BOOM, BOOM!............”, a few thunderous stomps frightened us. It was the Kapa Haka performance. It took around 5-7 minutes.

After the Pacific Migration performance, which was followed by our first dance, we starting dancing with nervous excitement. “Yeah, yeah, yeah!”, I was singing to myself while I was dancing.. As the song faded out, I was relieved, yet sad that the first set of dances were over.

After a few more dances and items, it was time for my solo. I was shaking with with fear as I waiting for Chante and Jerome to finish their dance. My violin performance was just one of the biggest events in my life. But although I was nervous, I knew that I had the support from my friends and family. Then NEK MINNIT, my performance was finished!! I remember I made a few mistakes, but I still loved it.

That wasn’t the last performance from me though. I also did a dance sequence from some Tamaki College students, and some modelling.  I am really glad that we have PEPA at Pt England because like Ms Muliaumasealii said, I helps us build our inner confidence and beauty.

One of the BEST Aunties EVER :)

One of my favourite aunties in the WHOLE WORLD is this chick, Mavaega, or a.k.a, Vaega. She is 11 years and has two sisters, ( one of them including my mum) four brothers, and of course her AMAZING mum and dad, my grandparents. She is into music just like me, and she supports me in everything I do. Our favourite rugby teams are the Chiefs and Broncos. In the weekends and holidays, I always spend a few nights at her house, and in the summer, or on a REALLY hot day, we enjoy going to the wharf and bombing!!!! We are really close, and nothing will EVER break our bond!
