In response to Lui which contributes to the above topic, I think you are right in some of your points but please be reminded that the students have to buy those furnitures in order to study well in their flats that are unfurnised. How na bae man study time house oketa rentim ia hem no garem table and chair ? What will a family do when their mum have a lot of accademic works to do with plenty washings? For sure they will need the washing machines. My friend, success in studying is not my study alone, but other contributing factors also affecting the students. I think if you come and study here in Suva, you would feel the effect. Suva is now different from before interms of living expenses.
