Funniest / touching childhood memory?
Having a dog funeral for my maternal grandmother’s puppy. Mum ran over Bubu Malia’s puppy and us cousins had a service. I lead the prayer, as soon as I said “ashes to ashes, dust to dust” Bubu Malia yells “eh, kapaina, dust to dust”! We all lost it 😂.
What are you passionate about and how did this come about?
Strength training. Been trying to make the gym at least 3 days a week. Training for strength and function of movement is my life. I do this now and often so my body can carry out the simplest of tasks when I grow old.
