le vaiaso ua te'a

Last Thursday I was out south at an event which I loved, it was high school students performing during the 4 nights of Mangere Showtime. AMAZING TALENT!

But before the event, I went into the shops to get some stuff for my side work,
...ia, kakou kalagoa ai fo'i a......a e alu i le kele o faleoloa i Magele, Otahuhu ma isi uma guu - e kumu i isi natioalities e ona pisinisi - ae o products o loo faatauina o products mo tagata Samoa ma Tonga.
Ana lelei o tatou ta'ita'i, penei ua tele naua'i tagata Pasifika ua fai pisinisi ma tu lelei.
Ae poo fea tupe ma resources o alu i nei Pacific Business Trusts are taga'i i le tulaga ua iai tatou nei.
Kaea pipilo.

Here's examples of products on sale - for the Pacific market by very enterprising non-Pacific business people who have the capital and initiative, ae kuikui gifo le malo pipo:







so my final question is, ok...its not a question, it is a statement:

When Peseta Sam Lotu Iiga gets back into parliament, I expect from him and his Ministry that they will do everything in their power to enable an environment for aspiring entrepreneurs to set up small businesses. But sadly - this ain't the small timers they're aiming for.

Ae a tuu foi i le Itu Agai (Labour) e na'o le faapepepepe o tagata ae le faatauaina le atia'e o tagata ina ia mautu lelei a latou aoaoga ma tomai ina ia maua ai ni galuega.


anyway, where was I?

Friday - did a saiga expo in the city where i realised that we take our personal space for granted. Koeikiki lava kisi mai i oka foreigns sole.

Lastly, I drove from the saiga gig to Freemans Bay for the Aoga Faasamoa Quiz. This means emergency wardrobe change in the car and then running in the rain to the hall. ...Not the Goddess entrance I had anticipated, more like a kolila frazzled entry.

Our team included a nurse educator, journo/public service, academic/youth/diva, a MAN, a business woman/prouduct knowledge and I, your humble fia know it all- Goddess.

I don't go to events to collect consolation prizes, auuuuuu - isa! ....so yeah, we won.
We did amazing in all sections bar the ahem - Sports.

Things I learnt at the quiz: We're a competitive bunch. If we lost, e ka'ei fagu.

fank you for the question, drum rolls....

...
here is a very pivotal image of some of our team, who I have aptly named:
Team Too SURE.
150% confidence, so confident that some of them were applying make up and redoing their hair for their winning walk to get their prizes....Too SURE because e sure.
oka.
The WINNING SELFIE, Isa! lol
