In English
Mister Five tells the family that everyone must speak in English at home from now on. When Mum laughed, he reminded her that everyone must laugh in English too. Bossy!
Flying emails
Some emails flying around about a row over a new hospital management-control software at our largest referral hospital. A different kind of virus perhaps.
Mixing it
PNG-born rugby lock Chris Minimbi from WHP continues to mix it with the best of them in the tough provincial rugby competition in Fiji. His Naitasiri team from the highlands in Fiji wrested the coveted Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy from Nadi recently. Go Chris go!
Much fanfare
An official launching of the vaccine in PNG today as cases continue to spiral out of control and the majority of people wondering when they can receive the first jab. At this rate, it looks like the earliest is 2022.
Sugar coating
Pastors yelling themselves hoarse at the pulpit must remember that sugar-coating the gospel may fill the church but not necessarily get people close to the Lord.
Happily married
The wedding vows have been amended to include the couple’s relationship through social media. Absurd.
Thought for today
In the blink of an eye, everything can change. So forgive often and love with all your heart. Take no one for granted for you never know what may happen tomorrow.
Top quote
“The work of journalists is critical to the health of societies during this time of national crisis- allowing all of us to stay informed, empowered and safe.” – European Union delegate to PNG David Messina on World Media Freedom Day.
