Ia e foai mai ia te imatou i le aso nei a matou meaai e tatau ma le aso. 
Ia e faamagalo ia te imatou i a matou agasala e pei o imatou foi ona matou faamagalo atu i e ua agaleaga mai ia te i matou.

Hi all but trying to find out who composed the song Tali Maia.

Tali Maia is a translation from an English love song which, in itself, was translated from a German pop song.  The original English version was Answer Me, Lord Above.  It evolved to Answer Me, My Love especially when American singers like Nat King Cole popularised it.

Personally, I prefer the Answer Me, Lord Above lyrics.  There are nuances there that made for a lover questioning the Almighty on why he has lost his love a rather pertinent question.  Asking one's love why they have lost their love, after admitting that they did something wrong to deserve the loss, is a circular fallacy in logic.

I regret I do not know the Samoan lyrics but I hope they followed the original.
Samoan Food / Re: Palusami casserole recipe

I am not a very good cook, but  Palusami is a must.

Here is a version with an oven and corned beef.
Anyone traditionalists wrap meat or fish in taro leaves and cook in the 'umu?

Palusami casserole

20 oz of spinach leaves
1 (12 ounce) can corned beef, broken into pieces
2 (10 ounce) cans coconut milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Make a layer of spinach leaves in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with some of the corned beef, then keep repeating layers of spinach and corned beef until you run out of spinach. Don't worry about how full the dish is because the spinach will shrink as it cooks. Pour both cans of coconut milk over the dish, pressing the leaves down with a spoon.
Cover tightly with a lid or aluminum foil.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until spinach has completely wilted and the sauce is bubbly. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Some people like to put dill or onions in there too :)

Am a real food junkie, i love cooking a lot especially during the weekends.. i will be looking forward to using this interesting recipe during the coming holidays.. i can already taste the final product. Thank you so much for the detailed recipe information on how to go about making the casserole. it will be my first and hopefully no the last..haha

Answer me oh my love
Just what sin have I been guilty of
Tell me how I came to lose your love
Please answer me… my love
You were mine yesterday
I believe that love was here to stay
Won’t you tell me where I’ve gone astray
Please answer me… my love

Ua ave pea oe i lo’u agaga
‘O ‘oe fuga fai ma a’u agasala
Pe o se avega ‘ua mamafa
