Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

Take Care

Now that gold is being bought easily from doubtful sources (as per advertisements), may I encourage  Fijians of Indian origin to take more care in who they invite to their homes. The lady who was killed by an alleged miracle worker should be a warning.

We are surrounded by people who prey on the defenceless. Please don't talk about how much jewelry you have at home because these people could tell others, and your home could become a target.

Those who prey on the poor and vulnerable  should be given lessons that they will never forget.

Water Cuts

With a the prolonged water cuts in Lautoka one thing struck me as not unusual. Grog sessions were going on just as if nothing was wrong. Anyway, I have to commend the Water Authority of Fiji for their constant efforts to bring us (hopefully) no more water cuts.

New pipes were put in a few years ago yet water cuts persisted. It would seem the engineers in the then old authority didn't do their homework very well. Now we have another water cut for further upgrading to be done. I have one simple question:  Will this latest upgrade now stop water cuts for good?

If some people are curious and wondering why I am complaining about the water cuts in Lautoka when my address says Mulomulo - I have two homes, one in Mulomulo and one in Lautoka. Homes that is, not kitchens.

Allen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in Fiji. I thank Allen for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.


Stalking said…
Further to Allen's word of advice: Beware of Facebook and Twitter with regard to 'unexpected visitors'. We have one documented case of a rape in Nadi as a result of 'stalking' on Facebook. The alleged rapist eventually escaped to Canada because he had not been placed on a No Flight List. Revealing personal information/data on Facebook or Twitter is simply incautious at best and foolish at worst. The name of the escaped rapist and where he worked is known to Fiji Police and also to Canadian Police. Ultimately, no one escapes the law for ever these days.
