o Mi Harem Se finally even our President has become caught up in the hype surrounding VAN2017, declaring a public holiday for all of Vanuatu, pity about the cost to the private sector, seems an unnecessary burden, but heh we are one of the happiest places on earth nothing like an unexpected holiday to put a smile on our dial regardless of the cost… Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se VAN2017 is on us finally after over a year of preparations the athletes are moving in the circus has begun. Cars riding shotgun as our Chinese gifted buses are ferrying them from the airports, siren’s wailing lights flashing, seems like everyone is having a fat time particularly the athletes who are being treated like royalty, well done guys we are certainly putting our best foot forward for now at least. Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se our Police Force can be seen getting round town in their new uniforms looking as officious as ever, what a pleasant site it is to see our finest strutting their stuff, nothing like a new uniform and some support to bring the best out in everyone… Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se our runway is still not progressing like we would like and now with the wet season suddenly thrust upon us one must wonder when if ever it will get done, oh well at least we have had the signing that’s a start I guess…Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se our friends at RMS are still a tad delusional and feel they are part of everyday society. When is someone going to tell them “heh you Sorry but you are supposed to work when we are resting and or playing you are road contractors not here on a bloody holiday.” It is safer and more efficient if you work on our off hours not on our hours… Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se the new proposed roundabout, you know the one in Port Vila near champagne estate which was supposed to be operational a few months back, they even advertised the same seems to be taking forever to complete and as each day goes by more and more people are getting confused, good thing pro medic is close by one thinks that when it does become the real thing that a few situations may arise… Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se Aquana is back in Business as of tomorrow after hosting 2 x schoolies weeks for some graduating Australian school leavers. It is fast becoming a popular place for students as we are known to be safe and friendly, the locals will be glad to have their normal Sunday venue back however as baby sitters are a premium or at least have been for the last 2 weeks…Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se the ring road was officially listed as another developing project that has had the starters gun go off and yes they are racing, racing to shelter it seems one hears that we won’t see much action until march next year, why do people always want to seem like we are achieving when we simply are not, tell us how it really is, perhaps finally some honesty instead of “Fake news” for a change may be refreshing…Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se don’t feel you can accomplish much over the next few weeks with most Government institutions forcing their staff to take holidays over the games period. Once again great to support VAN2017 but not so great to keep an economy that is crippled at best from being completely lifeless and under nourished due to administrative negligence, talk about not seeing the wood for the trees…Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se queues are long and service is poor for departures at our Bauerfield airport, when can we not be able to perform to realistic expectations and stop saying our poor performance is acceptable, one thing Clint Flood has done at VAN2017 is create a culture that whatever the standard was before is simply unacceptable, we need more of this type of drive and less of the lustfulness we have become so accustomed to over the years. Get up and get out and make it happen, take some pride home with you and create a better place that we are all proud off. Silip!!

o Mi Harem Se the Dobber wishes all competing athletes the best of luck over the next two weeks and remember this, competing successfully is not about beating everyone its about beating yourself, if you do a PB then you have won already, hold your heads up high and let the battles begin. Good Luck to you all…Silip!!
