Follow women
A sign at a workplace promoting the Covid-19 health safety rules states: Follow WOMEN (Wash your hands, Obey social distancing, Mask up, Exercise and Eat well, No unnecessary travelling). Avoid MEN (mouth, eyes, nose).

Out of stock
One of the most expensive imported beers sold in major supermarkets in Port Moresby is out of stock. Its name is similar to the Covid-19.

Thought for today
When you like a flower, you pluck it. When you love a flower, you water it every day.
