Life of 90-year-old celebrated

It is also a celebration of the life one has lived.

90-year-old Ombolu Tiyoma, from Payama Village in Pangia, Southern Highlands Province, was recently celebrated by her family for her life as a woman of standing in her own culture.

Tucked away in the corners of Morata Two in Port Moresby, a small family from Pangia hosted a feast as part of their Christmas celebrations.

Tiyoma is a traditionalist given her strict obedience to cultural values, which she tries to impart to her family.
