Asenati Lole Taylor is on form at the moment, this time she’s publicly discussing cases she’s working on by posting vague tweets about it without giving too much away. What a magnificent display of professionalism and privacy.
The majority of Chinese nationals currently residing inÂ SamoaÂ are expatriate businessmenÂ Samoa,Â and there are at least 30,000 people inÂ SamoaÂ who are of mixed Samoan and Chinese descent,Â although they are classified as ethnic Samoans in official census.Â Around the world, about 25% of all Samoans claimÂ ChineseÂ ancestry. Nearly all Chinese nationals in Samoa reside within theÂ ApiaÂ municipal area; neighbouringÂ American SamoaÂ – Wikipedia

The traditional ChineseÂ camphorÂ chest (jeung seung, ć¨źç®±) has become commonplace in Samoan homes, where they are calledÂ atola’au. Ornately carved furniture and wall panels have also been adopted, often with Samoan-themed carvings and inlay.
Loved the way she managed to channel her inner Winston with the last tweet, Â the irony of that is a significant portion of her home country is of Chinese descent.
I must say, an immigrant to this country making comment about overstayers did make me snigger….
