A quick update…

Things have been hectic the past couple of weeks. I have been busy with marking and also preparing lectures and classes for the 2nd half of this current semester. Also, we are still having problems with one of the transformers on campus and this situation has highly impacted the availability of the university Computing facilities

Where have I been for the past week ?

You haven’t heard from me since the middle of last week due to one of power transformers on campus blowing up. “They” say it could take a week or two to fix

Between the Unexpected…

PNG is described as the Land of the Unexpected. But what about those times between the unexpected? What about those times when nothing much is happening and things are quiet? What then?

A shadow of my former self…

For those of you wandering if I have lost any weight since arriving in PNG. Please refer to the following photo which was taken last Saturday

The leaking tap has been fixed….

A quick post to let you all know that the leaking tap, in the Business Studies men’s toilet I mentioned yesterday, has been fixed

Leaking tap in men’s toilet….

Had to show you this one. The above photo was taken in the men’s toilet of Business Studies (about 5 minutes ago). The tap has basically been leaking since I started here in April! The problem was reported to Maintenance some time ago but as yet they still haven’t got around to fixing it

Monday morning…

Monday morning, 8:00am. Just as difficult getting out of bed on a Monday morning here in PNG as what it was getting out of bed back in Sydney. I could have done with at least one more day off

“The Dentist” Part 3….

Another visit to a local dentist !! But lucky me, to a private dentist this time. Two previous visits to the dental clinic at the local public hospital was enough

Another week….

Well it is Friday afternoon around 4pm and another week has passed by just like that
