PNGeans hope for a fresh start in 2017

Many Papua New Guineans are hoping to make a fresh start with their 2017 New Year resolutions.

Loop PNG took to social media and asked what resolutions people would be making for the New Year and this is what some had to say:

Samantha Kome in Port Moresby said that her New Year’s resolution is to be fit and healthy while Rachael Tarsan said she wants to just live life a little more on the edge.

Also in Moresby, Jeoffrey Kotokoto said he will minimise the use of social media and spend time on educational materials in the New Year.

Constance Kanau in New Ireland said she aims to save more by spending less, which is what most people hope to do in 2017.

Evelyn Kavang in Moresby said her new year’s resolution is to put her happiness first because if she’s happy then everyone is happy, while Amanda in Lae says she just wants to accomplish most of her goals in life.

Papua New Guineans in the Philippines, CJ Alarcos and Phoebe Giarua, also shared their New Year’s resolutions.

Alarcos said his resolution would be the same as last year, which he had failed to accomplish this year, and that is to cut down on soft drinks and start drinking water.

Giarua aims to spend less time with friends, learn more about God, learn more cooking recipes and she also wishes for more Peace in this world in 2017.

What is your New Year’s resolution?
