Thank you Quick for all your insights and these new knowledge. I really appreciate your work. This takes me back to my days at St. Andrew's with the test Fridays on these proverbs. I was good then, now I am a total idiot. I think my friend mentioned that she bought a book of Tongan proverbs in New Zealand when she was there with her family. I will check to see if she can lent it to me while I am home after my surgery.

Take care Quick and keep everyone in line until I return.

Aloha,

pryn, read somewhere that a Tu'i Tonga back in the day had a canoe named 'Lomipeau' and the canoe's hulls streached from Kao to Tofua.
they were probably sacred islands back in the days of the Tu'i Tonga.

Polosi, polosi, pea kosi kovi.

In the olden days, Tongan ladies hair were cut only for three reasons;

1. Funeral where the person died is the aunty, father, and so forth for the young ladies cutting their hair shorts.

2. Suffering from any illness where young ladies were asked to cut their hairs.

and the final and no. 3 Please PM or MSN Quick for the "truth" :wink: :lol:
