o Mi Harem Se passengers preparing to fasten their seatbelts in a recent flight to Port Vila, when they found out that the rhythmic bump-bump-bumping wasn’t turbulence, it was the latest entrants into the Mile High Club performing their, er, entrance exam. You can bet they weren’t flying Virgin airlines. More like Polynesian Blue. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se people’s noses were out of joint because of the traffic snarls on Thursday, but whose fault was that? Maybe if drivers would pay their fees on time, there wouldn’t be so many vehicles clogging up the roadsides on inspection day. Then again, the cops shouldn’t be tossing people out of rental vehicles, either. I mean, you know where the car hire office is; just write up the fine and deliver it. It’s not the driver’s fault, for crying out loud. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se Port Vila residents were dumbfounded earlier this week to see the mortuary vehicle screaming its way toward the hospital, siren blaring. It’s maddening enough to know that the only time we’ll ever hear a siren in Port Vila is when some muckety-muck doesn’t want to wait in traffic. But what could possibly possess someone to put a siren on the bloody hearse? I mean, it’s little late to be rushing to hospital, isn’t it? Silip!
o Mi Harem Se people in the Buzz FM96 studio were acting like giddy little schoolchildren Friday because they got to interview actual, realio-troolio nobility. The Baroness Scotland of Asthal, as well as being the first-ever female Commonwealth Secretary General, is seriously cool. Born in Dominica, an island nation smaller than Vanuatu, she was the first black woman ever to be named a Queen’s Counsel in the UK, and went on to become Attorney General. Her interview is up on the Daily Post Facebook page. Give it a listen. With friends like this, we just might stand a chance in this world. Silip!
o Mi Harem Se shirts are getting badly rumpled at the MSG, as Vanuatu and the FLNKS square off against the others over West Papua. Insiders are knocking Fiji’s Ratu Inoke for getting his oar in when he should be leaving the dialogue to others. Indonesians are hard at work in the back channels, claiming to be the injured party when it was their strong-arm tactics that set this whole debacle in motion. Silip, but expect fireworks at the leaders’ summit.
