    Rencently, i have watched a situation comedy from New Zealand:  "the Semisis"

     http://nzonscreen.com/title/skitz-1998    (Skitz Clip 1)   (maybe there is some wrong with the link, but you can just copy it in the website line)
    
    i have some questions about the Samoan language.
    1)what does the word "Semisis“ mean? is it a Samoan word?
    2)what is the exact meaning of Auntie Mele's letter? i am not very clear about some words or pronounciation, such as "Dear fam(p)ly, "flying fox lands",”GOB IN THE FOB".
    3)i feel confused about the meaning of sentence "still married to that fat FOB".  in addtion, i think the sentences --- "Mele is come to town" and "Mele disapprove of the gambling "have some grammar errors.

    i really don;t know whether the above things are Samoa's language habit or in the comedy,the parents are influnced by new environment--New Zealand.  YOUR kind reply will be appreciated!!!   Smiley Cheesy
