It does not make sense – two teams from Melanesia told to play a Pacific rugby league test match in Christchurch on the South Island of New Zealand. Not only will the cold affect the poor guys, but one wonders how many PNG and Fiji people are living down that way and want to watch such a game.
Melbourne Cup
Tuesday is Melbourne Cup Day, also known to some as the first day of the Silly Season. Yes, Xmas parties are nigh.
POM rain
The recent rain in the nation’s capital city has an unusual timing. It starts early in the morning then stops around 9am. It resumes after 5pm and into the night. Colleague says it is as erratic as the power supply.

A major company has hired a chaplain to provide services in particular counselling to its workers. Good idea. It will come in handy for some on “loose week”.

Taxi driver in POM gave his name and phone number to a passenger in case he needs to call his cab in future. “Easy to remember. My name is MacDonald. My number is ….. My base is at Foodworld. So it’s MacDonald at Foodworld.”
Costly theft
Chimbu man Mathew Lucas, 29, who stole K12 from a man’s bilum was fined K300 by court in Lae, in default six months in jail. The K12 was recovered from him by the police on the spot.
Today’s thought
No matter how bad they paint you, you will still be admired by those who know you well. And do not take life seriously, you will never get out of it alive.
