Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel & Bungalows, Apia, Samoa (as reported in Samoa Observer)– Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s today formally welcomed the opening of a new premium cultural outlet by Janet’s. The opening of the new cultural outlet and creative space in Sheraton’s Apia property marks another new chapter for Samoan Tourism since the multi-million dollar redevelopment of the Aggie Grey’s Hotel unveiled last year to the public in Samoa’s capital township.

Janet’s, a celebrated retailer and member of Samoa’s cultural industry will enhance the Sheraton Samoa experience by showcasing to Sheraton Samoa guests a wide collection of cultural and artistic productions from both Samoan and Pacific artists.

“Janet’s is honored to partner with Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s on this new cultural space. Aggie Grey and her family have been at the center of Samoan hospitality since the 1930’s. The redevelopment of Aggie Grey’s Hotel last year under the Sheraton flag was a milestone for all Samoa. Janet’s is proud to contribute to the legacy of this great name and property and to continue to delight visitors with the best in Samoan fashion, art and culture”, said Janet Sablan, Director of Janet’s.

We are proud to be able to share this with Janet’s”.

What is GALU Samoa?

 

GALU SAMOA - Samoa and PACIFIC CLOTHING FOR MEN

GALU – The 3 Elements

 

The GALU Logo was inspired by 3 important elements in Samoan and Polynesian Mythology and Culture – The Wave (GALU), the Stingray (FAI) and the Hook (MATAU).

 

 The first element is the ‘Galu’ or the Ocean Wave. The Ocean wave represents the dynamic power of nature. It also represents the cyclical nature of things (circle of life). It was the current and the waves (and understanding of these forces) that allowed the first Pacific people’s to settle the Pacific. A wave is merely the transference of energy from one point to another. A wave is nature’s expression of energy. Exploration is the Pacific people’s expression of this idea.

 

The Second Element is ‘Fai’ or Stingray. This element represents the beauty of Tagaloa’s  (God & Nature) Creations. The creatures of the Ocean give to the Pacific people both nourishment and was a source of creation beliefs in Pacific mythology.  

 

The final element is the ‘Matau’ or The Hook. The Hook is a symbol of Man’s ingenuity and skill in mastering his environment and providing for his family. The hook symbolises authority and the daring of a people to survive in the largest expanse of Ocean in the world.

 

These three elements make up GALU.

Breakfast with Sonny Bill Williams

SonnyBillWilliamsBreakfast (5)

Sonny Bill Williams walks into the room and you can feel everyone’s body tense. When he speaks, you can hear a pin drop. We’re all familiar with that saying “larger than life”. When you meet Sonny Bill for the first time that’s exactly the impression that hits you. What’s true on the TV and mobile screen is true in real life: Tall, Tanned and handsome. When its time for pictures you don’t know who is more excited the women or the men, the young or the old, everyone wears a broad smile. And everyone is given access to him.

What never translates as easily, but what is most striking however Continue reading
