Port Moresby Christmas

Women and child injured in collision: Residents

This happened at Nine-Mile Makana, around 12am this morning, according to eyewitness Joseph Raiam.

Raiam and another two were on their way home when they saw the 5th element Ute speeding into town.

The driver, who was believed to be under the influence of alcohol, drove onto the wrong lane, heading straight into a 15 seater bus.

He says the driver of the 5th Element ran away, leaving behind the three injured passengers, believed to be from Milne Bay Province.

The three were assisted into a taxi and sent to the hospital.

Busy day ahead for recreational parks

Provided the cooler atmosphere and readily available facilities like the haus win and BBQ stands, who wouldn’t?

Loop PNG visited Adventure Park, a hot spot just outside the Nation’s capital, this morning.

Although it was quiet then, the staff on duty said nine haus wins were already booked and the park is expected to fill up by midday.

The park has other adventurous activities, including Bird Sanctuary and National Orchid Garden, waterslide, paddle boat, Ferris wheel, merry-go-round and fishing.

Slow Christmas for city shops

This means a less stressful day for shops throughout the nation’s capital.

Loop PNG visited major shops like RH Hypermart and Stop N Shop, which were open today.

It was a normal Sunday for them, with less customers and was less hectic than the two previous days.

According to a shop assistant at Stop N Shop, there was a little bit of a crowd in the morning but it had all cleared out.

The two previous days however, were the busiest, they confirmed.
