Blaring siren
The blaring siren of the funeral home vehicle, and the line of cars with headlights on following it, racing down the highway is a common sight in Port Moresby. Why is it necessary to rush our loved ones to their graves?
No secretariat
A secretariat to deal with gender-based violence is yet to be set up – four years after it was approved by Cabinet. Euphoria over Jenelyn Kennedy’s case is already dying down again. How many more such deaths does it take for the State to act?
Irritating act
It’s irritating to be waiting unnecessarily because the person in front of the queue is yarning on the phone, while the cashier waits to serve him.
Toilet direction
This will start a long debate at home surely.
Try barter
A barter system started in one of our fellow Melanesia nation is working rather well, considering how a lot of families lack cash right now but are willing to exchange food or household items, for example, to get school stationery or things they need urgently. PNG should try it. All it takes is for someone to start a page on a social media platform.
Human kind
People have two ears and one mouth so that they should listen more than speaking.
Cheating exposed
I washed my hands so much because of the Covid-19 that my exam notes from years ago resurfaced.
Thought for today
Never express too much love, affection or care to someone. Because it is human tendency to underestimate anything that is free of cost.
Top quote
“We invite all men to accompany their wives to the hospital labour ward. Men need to witness the pain a woman endures during child-birth. That will change the way they treat the mother of their children.” – Sister Jennifer Pyakalyia of the Port Moresby General Hospital.
