IT was a dream come true for a retired scuba diving instructor from Vatulele Island Resort after he was told he had won a Hilux 4×4 pick-up truck from Vodafone on Thursday.
With only two text messages sent in for the competition, Peni Vatunawa of Nadi was the lucky name drawn for the vehicle.
“Veigauna kece au dau lako sivia na vanua dau volitaki kina na lori, au dau tadra me bau dua na noqu. Ia qo au sa marau sara kina vakalevu (Every time I go past the car yard, I’ve always dreamt of owning a car. Now I’m happy that I have one),” Mr Vatunawa said.
He acknowledged God and the Vodafone team for the opportunity, adding he could not wait to get to his village in Nawaka to celebrate the win with his family.
