    On TV program, a presenter says to people who're participating:

    "Meillä on bileet tulossa. Säpinää on tiedossa toivon mukaan."

    I am not quite sure what "toivon mukaan" means. Have I understood it correct: "We have a party shortly. Whether it will be a big party or else, it's up to you, as I heard." (?)

    Hello!

    "Toivon mukaan" = toivottavasti = hopefully. The second sentence means "Hopefully we're in for soe action."
