BACK TO THE
PACIFIC WAY

Dickie Bird said a kava session that lasted for about four hours did the trick at the United Nations in New York.
Samoan Prime Minister Tuilaepa Lupesoliai Sailele Malielegaoi visited the Fiji office to express his gratitude on Fiji’s support for Samoa to host the 2014 Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) summit.
His visit led to the kava session with our Minister for Foreign Affairs Ratu Inoke Kubuabola and Ambassador Peter Thomson. At the end of it all the past bickering over Fiji was forgotten and we were friends again. This is a fine example of the true Pacific Way followed by our leaders in the past.
IN A MATTER
OF SECONDS
We have tasted instant noddles or coffee.
But what about instant kava, well Dickie Bird said plans are underway to have that on our supermarket shelves in the near future. Dickie Bird said right now a group of kava experts are sharing ideas on how best they could tackle that and to have an expiry date of three months.
LOOKING FOR A
LOCAL PARTNER
A major rugby franchise from South Africa is about to seal a deal with one of our local unions.
Meetings in Pretoria, has come to an end and words are that rugby experts from there are about to visit our shores and look at how our local unions are run before they decide on their local partner.

SPECIAL DAY
FOR FIJIANS
A number of our top local artists are away overseas. They have been hired by the Fijian communities abroad to sing during their Fiji Day celebrations on October 10.
Dickie Bird said a few of our talented groups whose names have been withheld as they await their visa application will be flying to the United States of America and New Zealand to boost the celebrations there. Let’s hope we can match celebrations overseas with celebrations here.

RETIREMENT
PACKAGE
The retirement package offered by one of our prominent financial institutions to its staff at the age of 45 has created a lot of interest.
Calls were made to Dickie Bird and they want to know more. However, Dickie Bird said the name will only be revealed when the time is right as this institution’s management immediately tried to change its tune yesterday when the news broke in the  Coconut Wireless.
