Face masks
Some shops selling face masks have run out of stock. But one rarely sees people wearing masks in public. Someone suggested that they may all be waiting for Friday, St Valentine’s Day, to wear them. He did not explain why.
Blind sale
A company is offering a huge discount on window blinds as a Valentine Day’s special, saying “privacy is important”. Does not make sense.
Power cuts
And we thought, after all the assurance by PNG Power, that power supply disruptions in Port Moresby are a thing of the past. PM Marape had also raised his concern about the power cuts. One reader suggests that it will actually start to happen “in the next life”.
Forgiveness
Maprik MP John Simon who was cleared by the Leadership Tribunal has thanked the media for making him strong by reporting on his case. In his message to the media in general, he said: “I forgive you. You were my worst enemy. The pain you inflicted on me has made me stronger, has brought out that fighting spirit in me. I forgive you, media.”
Safety first
A man walked into a shop at Boroko to buy food and was surprised to see all the staff there wearing face masks. He wanted to know why as there was no case of coronavirus in PNG. The response was: “Safety first!”
Thought for today
Nobody is perfect. Nobody has it easy. You never know what people are going through. So pause before you start judging, criticising others. Everyone is fighting their own unique war.
