Vaifala - Pineapple Drink

By panipopos

The Womens' Committee for our church used to do an annual tour of everyone's houses. In the week leading up to this tour, my mother would do a complete revamp of our house, wiping every surface in the house, cleaning walls and the ceiling (!), trimming and weeding out the garden, even scrubbing and detailing the outside walls and windows. After the Women's Committee had inspected our house, my mother would serve them this refreshing Samoan drink. Perfect for a hot summer's day and the end of a long week of cleaning.
