Giant break
PNG-born Chris Minimbi, a rugby lock forward playing for Naitasiri province in the Fiji national rugby competition, has broken into the Flying Fijian national team preparing to play Portugal, France and Scotland in the Autumn Nations Cup next month in Europe. Big feat.
Court relief
A man whose court case was dismissed yesterday requested the magistrate if he could approach the bench. When the magistrate asked why, the man said he just wanted to shake his hand. The magistrate explained that it was against court rules. But it was hard to wipe the smile off the man’s face.
Raiders beware
It seems they are ready for anything that will be thrown at them. Melbourne Storm wing Suliasi Vunivalu and centre Justin Olam are preparing for the NRL semi-final match against the Canberra Raiders on Friday.
A struggle
The minimum wage rate in PNG is K3.50 since 2016. For a 40-hour week, it comes K140. That’s tough.
Initiative galore
So many plans and initiatives to fight gender-based violence. Now City Hall has come up with one. What happened to the one PM Marape was given during the vigil following Jenelyn Kennedy’s death in Port Moresby?
Thank God
Someone posted this: “Yesterday I wanted to fight a certain guy but people separated us. Next morning I saw the same guy training a group of people in karate. I now believe that God never forgets his children.”
Boot them out
Advice: Do not let negative, stupid and toxic people rent space in your head. Increase the rent and boot them out.
Thought for today
Today you could be standing next to someone who is trying his or her best not to fall apart. So whatever you do today, do it with kindness in your heart.
