Beauty Around Every Corner – Fia Rosseter

The Spirit of Aloha

The word “aloha” is the most recognized of all Hawaiian words. In its simplest use, it means “hello”, “welcome”, or “goodbye”. But the word, to many Hawaiians, can also be used to convey a much deeper and richer feeling, one that encapsulates a way of living, being, and most of all, treating others. This Spirit of Aloha inspires us to do what we do and influences every facet of every tour we offer at Polynesian Adventure Activities.

We wanted to delve further into this particular meaning of Aloha, so we asked Fia Rosseter, what the Spirit of Aloha means to them, as well as some of their favorite things about Oahu.

Hi, Fia! What is your role & how long have you been here with us at Poly Ad?
I’ve been a member of the Poly Ad Ohana for 4 years – started out as a Wash Crew Supervisor but I recently became a Charter Sales Specialist.

What is your favorite thing about Hawai’i?
The drive to the North Shore is simply breathtaking The views of the scenrey and the smells of the ocean. Everyday I feel blessed and grateful to be living in Hawai’i with its beauty around ever corner.

What does the Spirit of Aloha mean to you?

The Spirit of Aloha refers to the hospitality we provide to each other as well as the visitors on our islands. It’s welcoming anyone who’s visiting the islands with open arms and wanting to share what our islands have to offer, showcasing what makes them special.

What is your favorite Hawaiian movie?
My favorite Hawaiian movies are Blue Hawai’i, Drum of the Islands, and of course, From Here to Eternity. I feel like when I watch them it gives me a glimpse of life back in the 1940s and 1950s in the Hawaiian islands. 

What is your favorite local food?
My favorite local food has to be the fried noodles from the Mililani Restaurant or a plate lunch, poke and bentos from Tanioka’s and of course Malasadas from Leonard’s Malasadas.
