Kapa Haka on Fiafia Night For Me Was Sooo.....

   With our school senior kapa haka group first to perform, the beginning of our 2013 School Fiafia night was about to start. All my nerves were crashing in my stomach like rough waves colliding against humongous old rocks.
   Awaiting on the side of the stage, I turn my head towards the crowd and at that moment I wanted to run away. Imagine yourself standing all confident and then you look out to about 2-4000 people. Now how would you feel? well I felt like the worlds smallest thing compared to that humongous crowd. 

  "Now can we all give a big hand to the senior kapahaka group. Take it away guys"(or something like that), the host Mr Burt announced. Striding on to the stage, all my nerves and butterflies slowly escaped my stomach. Its like the moment went from agony to ecstasy. The first chords of the guitars strums just click me into kapaz mode. All our practises built up to this one performance.

   I was singing my little heart away and then all you know is our first waiata is almost finished. "O te motu, tena ra koutou nga iwi o te motu hei ha!", we finish our first song with. "Hope(translation: ho pe", I call as the kaea, (Leader).

  " A tenea wheua!", the other kaeas call starting off the girls haka. While they're saying that I'm saying to myself in my head, "HAKA HARD, HAKA HARD!!!" At the start of the haka I forgot most of my action but who cares about actions so I said to my self, "Kia care". All I wanted to do was go hard and... HAKA HARD!!, which I did. Mostly because hakas mainly about the kupu. "KIA U TONU NGA TIKANGA TUKU IHO, AUE HI HA HI!!!" I bellow giving it my all.

  It was then all the actions came to me. "Arai hia ra nga tama tane kia puru, kia puru ai I aha ha!" "I'll put a pukana here and a pukana there", I say in my head as bellowing the haka. As the wahine haka finished it felt my breath was taken away from me after screaming and yelling the haka with all my strength and heart. Luckily us girls got a brake while the boys did their haka.

"Tahi rua toru", I count in my head. "HI!" , and the boys finished their haka off strongly and with kaha. (As usual). It was time for our entry song for the junior kapa. While we finished the first first bit of the song we start the second bit and the cute little ones walk on stage singing along. While the young bucks did their thing we stayed on stage to give them company.

  "Tahi rua toru wha PUKANA!!!",  We all ended with. What a performance. That is one I'll never forget. Man Whatta Night it was.

The Alive Heart Photo

Once upon a time there was an urban myth about a photo that live a life like any other human being. Everyday the photo would somehow get itself around the house, but when the family were home the photo was on the windowsill. But one day when the family were home, the saw the photo move and were scared. Because of that the family moved away because they thought the house was haunted. The mysterious photo followed them wherever they went, like a stalker. Because of that the family locked the doors as the photo cried. Until Finally they haven't seen the photo ever since. Ever since they haven’t seen the photo. They were afraid. The moral of the story is ohana means family and family means never leave anyone behind. The photo was so sad when the family left. Thats the moral.

This was based on Harry Potter how the photos can talk...

My Sponge bob Story

 Looking at the waves, Sponge-Bob and Patrick were going for their everyday 11 am surf at Wharepaku Beach. As the waves barrel, Sponge-Bob surfs through them. Surfing his little heart out,  "Wooaahhoaaah!!!!!!", Sponge-Bob screams while he dies beneath the waves (Not literally).

  Watching Sponge-Bob, Patrick chuckles with a smirk on his face. "Apply the sauce (glue)", Patrick says in a dumb voice. Why glue? well he thinks he can solve the problem of falling off his board.

  Tackling the waves,Patrick acts like the man. "I will not be separated", he demands. Nek minnit. Seeing a rock, he screams aloud,"SEPARATE, SEPARATE!!". Crashing into the rock, the waves separate Patrick from his board and skeleton.

  His skeleton flies out of his skin like a canon ball being shot in the air. Landing on the beach skeleton goes in the sand head first. Washing up ashore was the skin with two bits of board on the feet. "Nice sandals", the skeleton compliments to the skin. "Thank-you we're inseparable", skin replies.

Marlin and Dory: Just Keep Swimming

Sighing with grief, Marlin sits upon the rock. "Hey Mr Grumpy Gills, when life gets you down you know what you gotta do? Dory whooped. "No I don't know what you gotta do" Marlin demands, as he glares at Dory with disappointment. Pulling Marlin off the rock Dory sings, "Just keep swimming Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, what do we do we swim, swim, swim." "Dory stop singing you're gonna get the song stuck in my head. Oh too late! " he exclaims as Dory hauls him down into the deep ocean. "Sorry" Dory replies.
