It's just unfortunate that at this time of the year- Christmas time this tragic event happens. God has a plans for all of us, so don't lose hope..have faith and everything will fall into places again! To all Samoans- be strong!

Hello Tina,
I hope that all is well with you still, especially our families in Samoa that were devastated by the cyclone. Best wishes for your future plans to travel to Samoa.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance... Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
Though I agree with your comments about nature's unforeseen power of destruction as compared to evil acts committed by mankind. My comments however, were directed to this 'knucklehead' above that's spewing hate in here.

You have explained it perfectly here. Time is of the essence in everything especially when speaking but unfortunately in public places like this, freedom of speech is blown right out of proportion. Thus ignorance is bred when people aren't careful to sift through thoughts before speaking them.
Don't mind the knucklehead, no doubt he will have his time to laugh ....and then his time to cry. How does that saying go; "o le uso ole aka o le kagi?" lol...

You live in Vaitele.. True. Well I asked the right person then.

Man, that is so sad to hear. Sounds like she's got her work cut out for her.

4-5 days with no power? Hopefully, it would be up and running before she arrives. I'm purposely not gonna tell her to pack candles.. Lol jk

Woii.. What shade of pink? Hot pink? Lol. She ain't catholic, I don't even think she goes to church.

As for accommodation. Think she is Pretty much sussed, since she's going with my aunty. If all fails, theres always pieces of driftwood and ie lavalava for her to make a lil makeshift hutt haha

No tap water? Sheit.. Sad!

Hey, you don't happen to know the names of the people missing at sea?
