Production of Tribe Series 2 entered its 11th week from Monday 18th October 1999.

Last week, there was both exterior location and interior studio scenes in the production schedule. The locations ranged from abandoned houses to city streets and alleys, city buildings, the countryside, farm buildings, a car park, and a shopping mall. The furthest location was about 25 kilometers from the Cloud 9 production centre.

It was the fiftieth shoot day of series 2 production on Friday 15th October – another 4 months to go for the production!

The animal wranglers were very busy last week as scenes involved goats, sheeps, lambs, pigs, chickens, hens, dogs, cows, and birds!

Loads of different props were also used ranging from photos to bowls dog food, toys, smoke, bones, a knife, cardboard, bottles, rucksacks, skateboards, shin pads, food, a watch, a can of diesel, a tractor, a plough, an amulet, and garden tools!

On the weekend, the cast enjoyed relaxing. Dwayne Cameron (BRAY) is a talented artist and enjoys painting. Caleb Ross (LEX) writes songs and plays the guitar. Others went out shopping.

Michelle Ang (TAI-SAN) had her birthday on Sunday and turned 16 years old – so happy birthday! Michelle has received some messages from fans on Tribe Talk and would like to thank everyone for their wishes, which are all appreciated! Michelle had a birthday party and the cast got together to celebrate on Sunday.

There was also another birthday party as Michael Wesley-Smith`s older brother had his birthday so the cast had a double-birthday weekend.

Bob the dog went for a long run on the beach and got completely soaking wet – Bob really enjoys water and will leap into the sea to play as soon as he gets an opportunity!
