Hospitality was so warm in this place that at the end it took fire.

Actually it was a bunch of local kids who found a native bee hive 20 shops along the water front. and as any 9 year old kid knows to get the honey you gotta smoke the bees out. So they lit a fire, smoked the bees out, got the honey and went off to eat the honey.... forgetting the fire was still buring.
So the 20 shops along the waterfront burned to the ground, even though the fire brigade was less than 100 meters from the bar in this photo. The Fire Brigade didnt turn up until some smart dued jumped a bulldozer and put the fire out physically!

OK, so where was/is it?

ahhhahhahahaha, i found it, look here Tonga’s Bounty Bar Burns Down ! - Cruisers & Sailing Forums
I begun searching MALO to find is a Tonga word, and "Malo e lelei" meaning "hello", so then I searched "Tonga shops burned" and there it was, in 9th place, the link about Bounty Bar.
So, what else do we need to know??? Malo aupito!!!

Useful Tongan phrases
Bastards! Geting it so quick!

Yes Malo e Lelei is whats blanked out on the sign... Id show you if I was on the other computer.

It was in Neafu, Tonga and a whale calving area and cruisers hang after they have done the eastern pacific and waiting for the season to change to do the western part.

Your go!
