Where are the boots?

Where are the boots?

So as he gratefully accepted a donation of boots from an Australian Good Samaritan, Prime Minister thanked Jo Mikarna for 3000 pairs, only to learn there were 4000. 

What has happened to the extra thousand, he asked our Ministry of Agriculture? 

One must hope this was simply a speech writing error. 

Otherwise, keep an eye out for top-notch work books around the island, before this newspaper has reported on the first deliveries to needy families as planned!


After hour punches

Samoa is a small place. 

That’s why hardly anything is a secret.

Whispers on the streets tell that a certain Government CEO was punched by a public figure at one of the watering holes in town over an extra marital affair.

At this point, no complaint has been laid with the Police.

Otherwise the whole world will know. 

But stay tuned; these things have a funny way of revealing themselves., especially when they eventually get to Court.


Ava ceremony interpretation 

What is the modern day translation of the ava ceremony and what do the props symbolize?

Well at the Marist ava ceremony on Tuesday, they offered an idea.

Apparently the Kava bowl symbolizes the table Jesus had the Last Supper on with his disciples. 

The coconut shell cup is said to represent brotherhood, as how the disciples drank from the same cup while the kava itself represented the blood of Jesus.

Is this a mockery of the church and Jesus Christ? 

Or is this just another way to integrate Christianity into the Samoan Culture? Who knows?
