The Old Frangipani Tree at Flying Fish Point by Trina Saffioti
By Trina Saffioti
Long ago, when my mother was a child, there was an enormous frangipani tree that grew in the town of Fkhong Fish Point. People came from all around to pick the beautiful frangipani flowers that adorned its twisted old branches.
One year, Mym wanted to enter the Flying Fish Point School fancy dress carnival but she had nothing to wear.
Faith-girl you can go as an island princess. We’ll make a lei from the old Frangipani Tree.
