All not lost for Eileen

In real life for Eileen Cikamatana, as Fiji’s door closed in on her, all was not lost.

This amazingly young 19-year old super weightlifter now has an awesome huge Australian window open to her.

Let us not ponder on her life’s negatives.

Let us join her in looking forward and wishing her every success in her life’s journey.

Join her as she chases her brand new dreams in newer horizons.

We wish her a happy, healthy, successful, prosperous and rewarding life laced with good fortune and every special blessing.

She will always remember where she first started … in Ovalau.

True Fijian

You can take out a Fijian from Fiji but can you take out Fiji from a Fijian?

Invaluable contribution

Edward Blakelock (FT 24/8) has made an invaluable contribution on the issue of an alleged assault taking place in the Parliament precinct by questioning whether parliamentary boundary has been demarcated as required by law.

If that has not been done then who has failed in carrying out his or her duty following Fiji’s return to parliamentary democracy?

Chicken breasts

For some time now, when opening locally-produced chicken portions pack, we are confronted with an abundance of thighs and drumsticks, but breasts are nowhere to be seen … we wonder if some bizarre genetic mutation of our poultry because of climate change is to blame?

Or would it be the tourism industry?

Kava Place communique

One of the joys in returning to Fiji is Allen Lockington’s observations in your newspaper.

Allen has a wealth of Fiji current affairs that he expresses thoughtfully and is enjoyable to readers.
