The Second World War (WWII) fought in the Pacific from 1939-1942. Papua New Guinea was the battle field of Japanese Soldiers against Australians. The allied forces of Australia, New Zealand and US forced the Japanese to the then northern territory of New Guinea. Japanese lost the war.
Here is a war relic moved to National Museum in Port Moresby on the 26/02/2016.

Even after the dry season (provoked by El Nino) in 2015, the level of rain fall is still low to supply us enough water this year.
Supply of Power and Water by Sirunumu dam is still down.
This is the excited photo of first day rain in December 2015 by JYanda
Buai nut is something you cannot avoid seeing in PNG. It is a very powerful economic player yet is so informal. Vey powerful commodity.
NCD City Hall connected with Vision City on over head Crossing.
This is not just an overhead crossing. The under construction bridge also would house mini stores and shops.
Amazing, yet on the ground is the view of typical suffering and desperate “buai sellers”. The look itself is the reflection of “cross road” itself in the economic context and livelihood of city residents. Rubbish. Contrast. Crossroad…PNG and Port Moresby in 2016.
This is the former Pineapple Building, but early in 2016 renamed to Sir Manasupe Haus and occupied at the same time. Just on the next street is the The Stanley Hotel & Suites just erected and soon to be opened in June 2016. Further up the Waigani-Boroko drive is new City Hall also opened up in 2015/2016.
Yes, 2016 we are seeing very new building opening up after being completed.
This Sir Manasupe Building is being renamed from Pineapple Building in honour of former Chief Secretary Sir Manasupe.
