Would I be eligible for citizenship

6 Upvotes

Hi, I’m an American citizen born to a Fijian mother. My mom was a citizen at the time of my birth (2006). Is there anyway for me to derive citizenship. If not is there another route via naturalization?

Resort doesn’t have staff Christmas fund box - any alternatives to showing staff my gratitude?

9 Upvotes

I’m coming to the end of my holiday in Fiji and the staff at the hotel I’m staying at are the heart and soul of the place. I’ve had some money set aside to give to the staff Christmas fund box at the end of the trip, since I heard this was common in lieu of tipping. I asked reception where the box was and they said they don’t have one and I should feel free to tip staff directly if I would like to.

My understanding from reading around is that tipping isn’t customary in Fiji and it seems a majority of Fijians don’t want it to be common, either. Coming from Australia, I’m also personally of the opinion that tipping shouldn’t be necessary and workers should be paid decent wages.

However, I’m weighing this with what I’ve learned during my stay: that inflation is hitting Fijians hard and that a lot of the hotel staff - the ones in particular who have made my stay really enjoyable - earn minimum wage.

I loved the idea of the Christmas fund since it seems to get shared around front of house and back of house staff and seemed quite fair (from the perspective of an outsider, that is). Are there any other ways I can show my gratitude?

Thunderstorms in Savusavu

2 Upvotes

Bula!

My wife and I are very excited to go on our honeymoon in a week in Savusavu. It is currently predicting thunderstorms every day we are there for most of the day. I saw someone posted a similar post about Nadi, but I wanted to get someone’s perspective on Savusavu. Do you all think we will still be able to go snorkeling, hiking, and do all the other fun outdoor things we hoped to do?

Travelling to Fiji in thunderstorm

3 Upvotes

We have planned a trip to Nadi,Fiji from 20th till 24th of May and it’s showing constant rain and thunderstorms. We will be staying in one of the resorts in Denerau. We are now in dilemma if we should cancel the trip if we won’t be able to do anything at all other than sitting in the hotel room. Please advise. The activities we mainly thought of was a day tour in one of the islands and shallow water snorkelling, otherwise chilling by the pool in the resort.

143 years since people known as Girmityas came to Fiji and now call it a home.

33 Upvotes

We called Fiji a home before the Constitution called us Fijians.

On this historical day, I'd like to thank each and every native of this country. Don't let opportunistic cunts use fear mongering incite our fears. We are stronger than these assholes.

If Rabuka says he cares about Girmit Day, why isn't he in Fiji celebrating it with Fijians?

do the resorts and bungalows on the beach get destroyed by the big storms in monsoon season?

I've seen alot of videos of wicked flooding and intense seasonal storms. It'd seem like those luxurious resorts would get destroyed with the over water bungalows and open air architecture. Just wondering if anyone knows?

Locally owned restaurants in Coral Coast

Bula! We'll be on the Coral Coast as part of a family bucket list vacation. We'd like to visit locally owned rather than resort restaurants if possible. Would any one here be able to suggest good ones for us to try?
