Ko lagona te poole mo te mataku!

Te taimi o te faitama se taimi gali, kae mafai foki o fai mo taimi e pole kae mataku ei nisi fafine faitama, kae maise eiloa te uke o mafuliga ko fakafeagai mo koe.

Te tokukiega o fafine e lagona te pole mo te mataku ona ko pogai konei:

  • Ko te mafuliga i loto i te fitino
  • Te mafaufau ki tulaga o te tamaliki ko tupu ake I loto i te tinae
  • Te fakatoka mo taimi ka fanau ei
  • Te pole ona ko tulaga o tupe e tausi ei te pepe
  • Te pokotiaga ona ko tau foki o fai tau malologa mai tau galuega i te vaitaimi tenei e faitama ei koe
  • Ko te uke o mea fou e tauloto ne koe mo te tulaga tenei
  • Ko te tulaga ka feagai mo koe i te fai mo matua.

 

A pokotiaga konei io me ko mea e mafatia ei koe i te vaitaimi tenei ne mea eiloa e masani o fai pena. Auala e mafai ei o fakafesagai mo pokotiaga konei i te taimi e faitama ei koe kae se gata fua i kona:

  • Faipati ki tau avaga ke maua se fesaosaoni, e pena foki mai te kaiga/ mo taugasoa
  • Fano o sasale kae fakamalosi tino
  • Ke masaua eiloa ke lava tau malologa
  • Ke lei tau kai
  • Koukou ki se vai e mafanafana
  • Ke lava se taimi o koe ia koe eiloa

 

Kafai ko pole koe ki se mea e tasi i mea kona e fakaasi atu mai luga, faipati ki tau neesifakafanau, Tokita io me se neesi ko te mea ke mafai o avatu se fesoasoani i te vaitaimi tenei ko faitama ei koe.
