I fully support Siosaia Mila on his comments on Nuku'alofa and I dearly hope the body responsible for/overseeing the new CDB has plans to make and keep the town in a clean state. Let the tourists and us Tongans living abroad when visiting our beloved country see a clean and tidy capital, not one that you get all embarrassed when coming in with non-Tongan mates and you encounter directly the opposite upon arrival. - Kenani Hoglund

I came across your website for the first time approximately 3-4 years ago, and since then, it has been very educational and entertaining. As such, it has been a tremendous pleasure for me to utilize the same to learn more about our Kingdom Island. ... I hope that the on-going political changes in the Kingdom Island will bring hope, fairness, and chance for the poor people of Tonga to live comfortably- just like their superiors. How can the government and its high officials sleep well at night, knowing their people are suffering?. - Joe

It is always a blessing to be in Tonga for the Po Le'o and the Uike Lotu. I cannot describe the warmth in my heart to walk up once again to the front of my village church and fe'iloaki with the kau Malanga Pole'o as well as everyone else in the village church. - Sailosi Finau
