Fa'afetai lava means Thank-you!

Fa'afetai Lava: Thank-you!  I love the response and the positive feedback about the Olaga Samoa Journal on Instagram & Facebook. It means a lot when people take the time to post, write or email their comments, thank-you :) Did you buy one? Hashtag #kokoandki and show us your favourite page! :) 

SO HOW DID THE DAY GO? Great! We all know that Samoa Independence day is all about the FOOD (haha). It was great to meet people and explain what we're trying to set up and establish for our peeps. Thank-you for stopping by and if you bought a journal or two, I hope that you're enjoying it. Long story short, Koko & Ki aims to establish a stationery & interiors/decor design line that celebrates our Samoan & South Pacific identity, language and lifestyle.

So we arrived island time (oops) at the venue but managed to open shop at about 10:30 am. Reason being, I put my hand up to design & draw signage posters for my church food stall and was up late til 2 am baking 110 cupcakes for the store eeeekk. Did you see these signs there? The wonderful church ladies ran the store.

Well, now I'm thinking to turn these colourful food illustrations into a lil' stationery notebook or maybe a Samoan food diary? Lol .... maybe?

Hot Suafa'i. What is it? A hot soup-like Samoan dish made of water, yellow ripe bananas, tapioca seeds and coconut cream. It is usually eaten for breakfast with toast?
