Thanks for your comments, East to West and pngean. Just over the weekend i was at this pub in Port Moresby having afew beers to relax after a hard days work. From across the bar, i was facing the door and could see everything that was moving in and out of the bar.
I must have had a few classes of rum, when i saw two beautiful ladies walked in, both had long braided artifical hair and had full lip-sticks, plucked eyebrows, high heels and tight jeans, and a short t-shirt that revealed their belly buttons. Man, their entrance made everyone in the room turned their eyes. They outshown all the ladies in the room. From a distance, i would have fallen for one of them, however, when they walked a bit closer, i realised that, they both were gays. I was kind of laughing inside. This made me think about what is happening in Papua New Guinea.
The western influence is getting hold of Papua New Guinea. Latest fashions and socials ill from western societies catch PNG so quicklty like wild fire. The same things that are happening in the western or Asian world is happening in PNG. How so quickly we are being deceived by the so called western culture. In actual fact, PNG has rich cultures which add value to life. PNG cultures are unique, setting the pace for a human person to grow mature and fend for him/herself given the right timing. I for one believe in my culture and try to make sure i do most of the things that an Engan is to do, upholding the Engan culture and tradition.
Engan culture is unique and it has its own benefits. I can mix the Engan culture with the western culture to make a living in this lovely country of ours.
People who have walked away from their culture and try to adopt the western culture, they find themselves confused with ideologies which dont have any roots in their life.
I hope many Engan and other Papua New Guineans see the great benefits culture can bring into our lifes.
