o Mi Harem Se a local expat lost his cheque book down at the Port Vila market. “I received a phone call the next day,” he tells us, “from a guy called Sammy telling me he had found it. I met up with this gentleman and he with a big smile handed my cheque book back to me.” Thanks, Sammy. It’s people like you who make life worth living. Silip!

o Mi Harem Se Sammy isn’t the only Good Samaritan in town. One story circulating on social media talks about a reverse pickpocket. Somebody was so modest about returning some dropped cash that they just quietly slipped it into the person’s bag without saying a word. Only in Vanuatu! Silip!

o Mi Harem Se people are grumbling pretty widely about the number of local banking customers who have been victims of electronic fraud. It needs to be said that Vanuatu isn’t the only place being targeted these days. Sources are telling us that Fiji and Samoa are facing their own challenges. Happily we’re being mature and balanced about the whole thing, and focusing on how to protect ourselves in a world of constantly changing technology. If you have a story to tell, let the Dobber know. Otherwise, check your balance, then silip!

o Mi Harem Se some folks in parts of central Pentecost were still a little riled up after the campaign, even though all three winning MPs from that area get along well together and they’re all on the same side. Hopefully this weekend’s festivities celebrating central Pentecost’s first ever Prime Minister will help mend some fences. Silip!

o Mi Harem Se Vanuatu Media Marketing—the Dobber’s sugar-daddies—just rolled out some really cool tech—giant touch screen tourist information terminals with built-in maps and booking forms. You can find them in the lobbies of a few top resorts, with more coming soon. They’ve got a seriously cool interface built by V-Solutions right here in Vanuatu. Take a look, then silip!
