Nothing Is free

What’s up with Christian 24-hour TV network TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network)? Dickie Bird said for weeks everything had gone blank on the designated channel to the disappointment of its many viewers.

No word from the Christian Mission Fellowship (CMF) in Kinoya on what had happened and the only thing we know is that it is now a paid channel on Sky Pacific.

Visa fees

It cost $59 for the process of the Japanese visa. Not bad but Dickie Bird was told that the best part of it is that you will only pay when you have been granted one. If your visa application gets rejected then you don’t have to pay for it. Dickie Bird said there are queries on why it cost more to apply for a US, Australian or New Zealand visa- it is almost six times more than the Japanese visa.

The worst part is that you pay while handing in your application and there is no refund if your application gets rejected, not taking into account the number of weeks you have to wait for it.

Decision time

Waiting for eight hours for a medical check-up could be frustrating especially for a pregnant woman. It would be worse if they are working mothers because it could mean a day away from work, which will eventually take its toll on their pay packet.

Dickie Bird said most of these women are hoping that the decision makers at Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva could consider their case and come out with a solution, that is suitable for them, medical staff and most importantly their employer.

 

Happy New Year

And a Happy New Year to those – especially from our hard working Sri Lankan community – who have been celebrating their New Year.
