Antonio/Megan,

Found a news article on the awarding of a few Fiji awards, one being the Bravery Medal which has a picture of the recipient wearing the medal.

A 13 year old boy of Labasa Sangam Primary School received bravery award from the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau after he saved his family from a house fire last year. Semi Bale Mara recalls it was early in the morning in December when he woke up after he felt heat on his blanket and realized that his grandfather’s home in Tuatua Labasa was on fire. Mara said he quickly got up and struggled through the house to wake up and get his family members out of the house which was later destroyed by the fire.

Other award recipients included Colonel Paul Manueli for the Companion Order of Fiji for eminent achievement and merit of the highest degree in service to Fiji.

Officer of the Order of Fiji recipients included Physiotherapist Cathy Wong, former Police Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua and Apakuki Kurusiga for distinguished service of a high degree to Fiji and distinguished service in a responsible position.

The Civil Service Medals were awarded to Permanent Secretary for the Public Service Commission Parmesh Chand, Finance Permanent Secretary Filimoni Waqabaca, Works and Transport Permanent Secretary Francis Kean, Immigration Department Director Nemani Vuniwaqa, itaukei Affairs Permanent Secretary Savenaca Kaunisela and Prisons Commissioner Ifereimi Vasu for outstanding merit in the civil service.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
