Heavy load
It seems there will be a lot on the plate of National Pandemic Response Controller David Manning with the resumption of international flights and all the approvals he has to give to passengers wanting to come to PNG. Quite a load indeed.
Photo op
It’s rare, and indeed an honour when your boss the prime minister asks you to pose for a picture he is taking. Our photographer Kennedy Bani caught James Marape and Hagen MP William Duma taking pictures of new Cabinet appointments Deputy Prime Minister Sam Basil, Minister for Tourism Walter Schnaubelt, and Minister for Energy William Onglo at Government House last Thursday.
Early start
Christmas carols are already playing loudly in one of the shopping malls in Port Moresby. And we are still 80 days away from Christmas.
Ear strain
Our ears are starting to bend – and relocate – forward because of our daily use of face masks. Our ears deserve to be readjusted every now and then.
People and books
People are like books. Some deceive with their cover while others surprise you with their content.
Debt warning
When debts are increasing but not government revenue, we know we are heading for the cliff edge.
Too late
When exam time arrives and you realise you have been playing around all year.
Food for thought
What comes easy will not last. What lasts won’t come easy.
Top quote
“The Christian life is not a constant high. I have my moments of deep discouragement. I have to go to God in prayer with tears in my eyes and say: O God forgive me, or, help me.”
– Rev Billy Graham
