Gangnam style for Sugar City

By FELIX CHAUDHARY
Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Update: 12:02PM LIFE must go on. And in Lautoka City, the new year will be rung in Gangnam style.

Preparations have already begun in the Sugar City to host the countrys biggest New Years Eve street party.

Lautoka special administrator Praveen Bala said the Western Division had been through three natural disasters of mammoth proportions and many had suffered huge losses.

"Many have suffered and countless others have worked tirelessly to bring relief and assist others. The relief work continues and I would like to acknowledge the efforts of all those that have sacrificed time that could have been spent with family to help us in our hour of need," he said.

"Despite the devastation, the Western Division has proved to be resilient and what better way to celebrate our strength and character than coming together as a community to celebrate our struggles and our achievements as we welcome in 2013.

"We extend this invitation to all the people in the division and hope to see you in Lautoka on December 31."
