While watching the Fiji Day celebrations in Nadi being broadcast on TV, it was interesting to learn from the commentators that the Bushmaster truck parked in front of the pavilion was given by the Australian Government and the howitzers used to fire the gun salute were given by the Koreans. It seems that a lot of handouts are made to our military. These should be savings to the Government.

Bus fare

Well how about that, bus fares are coming down. (FT 10/10). Buses servicing the same routes are competing, how nice. At least something good has come out of the eTicketing issues. Good one.

eTicket cards

Is there any way the eTicketing cards can be linked to a mobile phone and we can check our balance and top up from the phone itself? If there isn't, then we aren't as advanced as we think we are!

Fijian players

Fiji is the only rugby nation in the top 10 ranked countries that has Fijian players scattered in big name countries such as New Zealand — Naholo, Australia — Koroibete, Kuridrani, Speight, Kerevi; France — Vakatawa; England — Rokoduguni to name a few. Just imagine if we had the resources, funds and expert coaching team. We could be the real Flying Fijians dominating the world of rugby. Go Fiji, go — keep the flag flying in other countries.

Is it e-asy

IT'S good to see some initiative of the Government for making public services more convenient. However, the system could avoid the criticism if more time had been taken to plan the scheme.

Anthem lament

As we sing our national anthem, let us be reminded of some inspiring words in the lyrics such as "Blessing grant o God of nations, on the isles of Fiji. And we honour and defend the cause of freedom ever. Onward march together, God bless Fiji!". Dominant in our anthem is our acknowledgement of the God of nations whose blessings we plead to make our nation united to defend freedom for all. Let's not sing this anthem without the acknowledgement of God. Let's be role models to stand as one, united to defend the cause of freedom for all people in Fiji regardless of their views, likes and differences in opinions. God bless Fiji.
