‘Agent’ on run?

A man is fuming because a travel agent whom he claimed he paid at least $2000 to fix his travel and visa has allegedly disappeared.

All he was told was that the agent had gone to Australia.

Now he’s wondering whether the certificate he was shown, that gives the agent the licence to operate, was genuine.


A runner?

A former sports official is currently enjoying himself in the country despite not paying his hotel bill. Dickie Bird said a court order was given to stop this so called official from leaving the country but somehow the sheriff is currently busy elsewhere as the order had not reached the relevant authorities.


Helping home

A group of well-to-do Fijians in New Zealand has heard the pleas for help from a Tavua group seeking assistance for the Tavua Hospital.

The NZ Fijians will be turning up soon with much needed supplies and may be equipment too.


Back in business

And some thought people in the village had no money. A shop in Vanuabalavu that was destroyed during Cyclone Winston is up and running again. As a safety measure they have relocated from the old site.


Queue watch

George Orwell in his book Animal Farm included a quote: All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.

Waiting in queue at a reputed bank in Suva after over 30 minutes a couple of customers walked in got there numbers from the queue machine and shot to the front behind clients who were about to be being served and were out in a flash, maybe five minutes at the most.

The tellers and security were watching the whole scene without any qualms and the customers, while a patient person included could only watch in silence.

Maybe, they were regular customers and had every right to jump the queue.

Just wondering if every regular customer did that. What a disaster it would be with chaos and mayhem at the least.

Or well was right: Some are more equal than others.


State service

Those seeking the service of a Commissioner for Oaths at the 8th Floor of the Suvavou House were cleared in a matter of minutes after the state lawyers came out to serve.

Well one came out first and after assessing the numbers (about eight) to be served told the receptionist to get one more state lawyer to serve.

The clients were served within minutes. All walked off after lawyers started serving another five minutes; left content with a service well done in 10 minutes.
