Bring it back
The cancellation of Apec 2020 by Chile has disappointed many, especially those from organisation sponsored by big financial institutions for a chance to visit a South American nation. But colleague thinks PNG can host it again. The 2018 Apec facilities still look new and the vehicles have not all been sold.
More fees
Colleague called the bank yesterday when he noticed that the money he had sent overseas three days ago had not arrived. He was told by a male voice to pay an extra K100 if he wanted immediate action. What? He had already paid K40 for the transfer transaction. A case of daylight robbery.
Shady responses
During an inquiry into medicine supplies yesterday, Public Accounts Committee chairman Sir John Pundari warned Health Secretary Pascoe Kase to stop his “shady little embarrassing responses”. Oh well.
No fork
A colleague found that there was no fork to use for his lunch of chicken and chips. He used his hand. Towards the end of the meal, he saw a fork in a plastic inside the lunch pack. Too late, the fingers were already dirty and greasy.
Xmas Fever
Well hello November. Its 54 days before Santa arrives in his sleigh to PNG. Some shops have already started selling Christmas goodies. The Vision City mega mall in Port Moresby is already into the festive mood with its Christmas tree erected.
