That's our Pearl of the Pacific for you mate. There's no other country like Samoa, no other culture like samoa, and no other people like da Samoans. You never find a custom or values like us anywhere. For example: A family is having their lunch(mea'ai)when some1 passes by, the father calls out 2 him 2 come and have lunch with them. And even if there's not enough food left for the rest of the family, that passerby will certainly be welcomed 2 share da meal. You won't find that hospitality anywhere..Thanking You 4 sharing your story..
