In mourning
It has been raining a lot in Port Moresby lately. Some may interpret it as a sign of nature joining in the mourning for a great man.
Cough stare
Colleague in a queue at a government office yesterday coughed, forgetting to cover his mouth. The stares he received from all and sundry could kill an elephant. On the positive side, it’s good to see everyone still very much conscious of and taking precautions on the coronavirus.
Faster virus
The UK virus strain is spreading faster than the Covid-19. Stay alert PNG.
Banned masks
Masks displaying provincial flags have disappeared from a shop inside a shopping mall in the capital city. Maybe the City Fathers have banned them too.
Over caffeine
A gentleman who loves his daily dosage of caffeine poured three sachets of the three in one coffee (coffee, coffee mate, and sugar) into a cup of hot water. His wife told him he only needed one sachet. He explained that one sachet was for sugar, the other sachet for coffee and the last sachet for coffee mate. Still hangover?
Maroons forever
Christmas has gone and the 2021 National Rugby League teams are preparing for their first matches in March. An ardent rugby league fan in Kokopo, East New Britain painted on the wall which team he is putting his money on this year. Graffiti is illegal and unacceptable but he just had to get his message across.
Food for thought
Three things you should never break: Promise, Trust, Someone’s Heart.
