Fiji magazines and papers
Peceli brought me back a bundle of newspapers and some magazines from Fiji so I am going through them with some amusement, disquiet, wonder. Two magazines that drew my attention were Mailife and Oceanian Wave; the latter was inaugurated in February this year and comes from the USP so has highly literate articles, fabulous photographs and covers topics that interest me. Mailife is full of the superb seven star resort on Laucala Island and the writer exceeds himself in hyperbole and amazement and then says, 'I lived in a atin hut'. I'll write more on this later as it raises the topic of distribution of wealth and the contrasts of lifestyle in Fiji. The cover of Ocean Wave is intriguing. What is the girl looking at? The model is Salote Sinukula Naulumatua and the photograph by Shiri.
Then I found a supplement to the Fiji Times because this inportant institution started in Levuka 140 years ago. Happy birthday Fiji Times.
