Bula Vi­naka! Whether you are snug­gled up in the com­fort of your living room or hav­ing break­fast in bed while read­ing this, the team at maiL­ife would like to ex­tend to you the warm­est of greet­ings. We hope sto­ries in this is­sue will pro­vide easy and in­ter­est­ing read­ing. Hooray! It’s that time of the year when lovers the world over shower each other with gifts, from tooth­some choco­late and cud­dly teddy bears to ro­man­tic din­ners and sparkling wines. We take a look at one of the most pop­u­lar gifts on Valen­tine’s Day – the red rose. Still on the theme of ro­mance, our cover story talks about the ex­tra­or­di­nary sur­vival story of one of Suva City’s fa­mil­iar faces, Sain­im­ili Naivalu, who gives a sneak peek into her rare dis­abil­ity and how the man she fell in love with at first sight stole her heart. You may have seen her beg­ging on the streets in her wheel­chair as you com­mute to work daily but the woman from Beqa Is­land is more than meets the eye. Get ready to be wowed by her story! Ev­ery now and then we see and hear sto­ries of fam­i­lies break­ing up over ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences, en­su­ing nasty court bat­tles and the tragic ef­fects these can have on chil­dren. So we thought of bring­ing you a tale of how frag­ile com­mod­ity like love can sur­vive the ad­ver­si­ties of life. The Day­als from Ba talk about their undy­ing love for each and how they made things work out de­spite the chal­lenges they faced dur­ing their 40 years of mar­riage. Learn the se­crets of how to make your mar­riage work. maiL­ife also spoke to Aus­tralian fash­ion icon Ni­cholas Hux­ley, head teacher at TAFE NSW. He gives ad­vice on what de­sign­ers need to bear in mind while ply­ing their trade. Our sec­ond elec­toral ed­u­ca­tion ar­ti­cle on “Democ­racy and Elec­tions” fo­cuses on the im­por­tance of civic par­tic­i­pa­tion in the elec­tions process and the role of ef­fec­tive in­for­ma­tion dis­sem­i­na­tion in en­hanc­ing ac­tive cit­i­zen par­tic­i­pa­tion in a coun­try’s de­ci­sion-mak­ing, demo­cratic and devel­op­ment pro­cesses.Celebrity chef, Lance Seeto brings you a few dishes that can lit­er­ally im­prove your love life. Learn about food known as aphro­disi­acs, in­clud­ing choco­late, av­o­cado, oys­ters and straw­ber­ries, among oth­ers. Yes, they are be­lieved to pos­sess the abil­ity to stim­u­late sex­ual de­sire. Start eat­ing them if you are game for it! For sports, we bring you in­ter­views we did with rugby God­fa­ther and Si­ga­toka busi­ness­man Jay Whyte. He talks about how he helped dis­cover some of 7s rugby greats and Rio gold medal­ists in­clud­ing Semi Ku­natani, Pio Tuwai and Waisea Nacuqu. We also bring you in­sights into South African in­ter­na­tional rugby ref­eree, Rasta Ra­sivhenge. Also, find out about top five places to eat when in Suva, your reg­u­lar health ad­vice for the month, fit­ness and ex­er­cise tips from Bu­la­li­cious and food sto­ries from Flavours from Afar and much more. So un­til next time, have a pro­duc­tive and awe­some month. pub­lisher@mail­ife.com.fj @ali­naziah
