  1. Those chinks shouldn’t be trusted and should be approached with caution. I dated one here and she treated me badly that I had to leave her. The Chinese think we are Iazy drunks like Iazy Iungu. Instead of wasting money and time trying to appease them , I would suggest that instead we should put these resources and effort into uplifting the lives of the tonga people who were disadvantaged during the rule of pf.
