It's that time of year again in which everyone seems to be in a festive mood.

I believe alcohol sales are high, nightclubs are booming and money flowing everywhere.

This time last year, a few lost their lives and hopefully, none will this year.

As I have always stressed, share some precious moment with your families.

Companies may provide you a token of appreciation but never leave your family behind, share it with them.

Make this Christmas an alcohol-free season, it might affect you in some ways but remember, it will not be that hard, but you could save a lot of money.

Vinaka everyone and a Merry Christmas to you all.

I've heard on numerous occasions when the NFA had to look for a fire hydrant during a fire.

I believe this was also the case when fighting the fire that engulfed part of the Lautoka Hospital.

Only this time, I believe they had to dig for it.

Thanks Fiji Roads Authority for erecting railings on one side of the Rewa Bridge. Please, could you also complete the other side during this school break or is there another reason for the holdup?

Also note, there are some streetlights that need replacing along the Wainibokasi Rd, from Nausori Village roundabout to Nausori International Airport.

Furthermore, could you confirm if the toll-free number, 5720, can accept texts.

A bicycle


I believe everybody who returned from the Bonn conference, including the band boys, should be given a bicycle each.

As for the Fiji Electricity Authority meter readers, they can easily read meters on foot.

There is no need to go house to house in a Suzuki van.

Even if you switch over to electric cars, you still will produce almost the same amount of heat.

By the way, there was one Radhe Prasad who used to do the meter reading on foot and as a consequence, he is as fit as he was in his meter reading days.

Please also give a bicycle to the CEO and the chairman of FEA.
