OUR FIJIAN BROTHERS NEED YOUR HELP

At the dock in Seattle, Washington. 

About 400 Tuna Fish Left

Was sleeping and Chaz texted and woke me up! Chaz, see what you did? On a peaceful sunday? Hahaha. Not really. I was just surfing all morning long. Chaz was inquiring about the location of St. Jude and he found it. I am sure he got himself tuna and enjoyed a bowl of sashimi under that beautiful afternoon sun. 

CONGRATULATIONS FSM EMBASSY IN WASHINGTON D.C

CONGRATULATIONS to His Excellency, Ambassador Akillino Susaia, DCM Jackson Soram and their wonderful team at the FSM EMBASSY DC office on the LAUNCHING of their new website, fsmembassy.fm. Please take some time to visit their website and learn the features that they have. 

The Fijians brothers are here in Seattle and they brought lots of TUNA!

Tuna from the South Pasifik. Yes. They brought tuna from the South Pasifik. And many people might have been scared away thinking of that very very long line last year, so it is a perfect chance for you and your whole clan, whole village, whole island to walk straight up to the ship and get tuna of all sizes. The best thing is, it’s still that same cheap price of $3.50 per pound.

Dear Parents

You know, sitting here drinking and tapping and dreaming, I couldn’t be more happier to see how far our FSM people have come. I know. I know. There’s still a lot of challenges and many mountains and hills to climb, but we must acknowledge that we’ve made pretty good progress. I can now point and say a few names of my role models and my list have exponentially grown over the last several years. And it’s so humbling and a good feel to know that our people have made some headways here on the mainland and elsewhere. 

Covid19 Vaccination Experience – Why you should get it asap.

Let me say this, many thank yous to the awesome Pacific Islander Community Association of Washington (PICAWA), specifically brother Joseph Seia for what he did and does for our community. Beautiful humans of PASIFIKA are, at least in the state of Washington, taken care of in the so many little ways PICAWA is pushing through, whether it be food drives, gift cards, housing assistance, covid tests, or vaccinations. PICAWA is at the forefront of keeping all of us a little safer. And I might add, get a little recognition from the other humans. Hehehe. Way to go PICAWA! Brothers Joseph and Toka can keep on bugging me. 

It’s in no small parts with PICAWA that we got the chance to get vaccinated a little earlier and I am here to tell you it’s ok to get yours too when your turn comes up. My wife, our youngest son and myself got the PFIZER vaccine and the only complaint I had was soreness at the spot. It was more hurtful than any other vaccines I had taken. Otherwise, nothing more beyond that.

2021 is a Super Busy Year So far

Now my wife is having a second thought about selling our house. She started yesterday upon finding out that I am spending almost $10K on these units alone. She was not having a good day yesterday. Complaining all day why I had to get a new ac when it’s not required and stuff. 

The Remodeling

In order for me to go fishing, I gotta finish what needs to be done first. And that’s why I am busy every day now remodeling all the rooms in my house.

Pasifika work continues, even in the rain

“You know Cal, the smiles I see when I delivered food to our Kosraeans made me so happy. Thank you and PICAWA for doing this for our Pasifika communities.” Deacon Driskell of Kosrae.

September 17th, 2020 PICAWA MEMBER VOLUNTEERS

Our PICA family is at work again on this September the 17th of 2020, in the middle of the Pandemic and hardships that our community is facing. These foods and supplies will go a long ways in helping them out.
