Lone piper
The man playing the bagpipe in the sun outside the gate to the Vision City megamall on Saturday attracted little attention. Some stopped to wonder what the hell was he up to and passed without giving any toea to thank him for the free music. But kudos to him for trying out something new.
Daru city
Is China really building a city in Daru without telling anyone? Australia is not happy. No one in PNG knows anything about it. Must be fake news.
Too heavy
Security firms must ensure that people they hire can at least run after and catch thieves. Last Saturday in Boroko, they could not catch a youngster who must have stolen something. He ran rings around them. Someone else caught the little guy. Then the security guards belted him near the police station, out of frustration.
Food for thought
Hate has four letters, so does love. Lying has five letters, so does truth. Enemies has seven letters, so does friends. Negative has eight, so does positive. Cry has three, so does joy. Under has five, so does above. Anger has five too, so does happy. Life is like a double-edged sword, so transform every negative side into an aura of positivity.
