Daylight Saving

Fiji’s Daylight Saving began on Sunday, November 4, 2018, when clocks went forward an hour at 2am to 3am. Picture: FT FILE

Australia had their Daylight Saving one week before ours and we were only an hour difference with them, instead of the normal two hours difference.

Now that Fiji has opted to have its own Daylight Saving, the normal two hour time difference with Australia remains.

Apart from enjoying and making use of the extra daylight hours, I believe we copy the Daylight Saving idea for overseas business purposes and transactions so that the normal time difference is maintained.

We normally make new year resolutions, so why don’t we Fijians make Daylight Savings resolutions, setting a goal we want to achieve by the end of the daylight savings time.

The late Pastor Ilisoni Lalakobau would tell his church members that if they do not use time wisely or manage it properly, they would be a waste time!
