The new slang

So the new slang circulating among Fijians is ‘O au lewa na rara’, meaning ‘I’m the boss of the grounds’.

This slang could have been possibly adapted after a video posted on social media went viral showing two women in a heated argument and exchaning words you probably don’t want to your children to hear.

The exchange was said to have taken place on Bau Island during Ratu George Kadavulevu Cakobau’s funeral this month.


More than a man’s best friend

It was a sight to behold. A dog crosses the road on the proper pedestrian crossing at a busy Raiwaqa neighbourhood in Suva.

Motorists notice that not far in front some people are also crossing the road where they shouldn’t. This dog is more than a man’s best friend. It is a great example to all us who use public roads.


Speed bumps

Talking about roads, motorists who find thrill in speeding need to beware of new road humps to slow them down near villages, settlements, schools etc.

One motorist found out the hard way by going over one of the bumps over the speed limit. His vehicle is going to the garage for a check while the owner is recovering from the shock.
