History for Olam
Chimbu man Justin Olam has the chance on Saturday to make it into the NRL history books. If his Melbourne Storm side beats the Parramatta Eels, it will be the first time a NRL side has won 20 consecutive matches. Go Olam go!
Cash appeal
Colleague was taken aback when directed by some men at a bus stop in Port Moresby to read the notice on a piece of cardboard lying on the ground. It was an appeal for cash donation for them to keep the bus stop clean. A new one!
Day to remember
Great to see people organising lotu-related events yesterday to mark the National Remembrance Day. They understood the real purpose of the public holiday. Not like others.
Food for thought
When people cut you down or talk behind your back, remember that they took time out of their pathetic lives to think about you.

“Parliament has sat for only a fraction of that time (63 days a year) this year. There remains a lot of work for Parliament to do this year related to legislation, reports from constitutional offices and other entities.” – Economist Paul Barker
