Brisbane Wantoks Kona
This is a notice board and on-line meeting place for Papua New Guineans and friends of Papua New Guinea living in the city of Brisbane and surrounding areas in the South-Eastern region of the State of Queensland in Australia.
Post a message, tell a joke, make an announcement or just tell people you are around, this board is for you and is whatever you make it.
Why is it that all the Papua New Guineans I've met or come across in Brisbane have all been such a snob. I get the same comments from other PNGuineans as well out here. Is there some kind of a disease we carry?
Why do you all hesitate to approach your fellow country men/women and say hello, I look at them expecting and hoping for one of them to step forward and say something but they all seem to be tied up in their own thing, even when they walk right past you with a bilum strung across their shoulder! Plis sam pasin ya traim na soim sampla luksave nabaut.
Hopefully this attitude will develop your country back home cause for some yous that's where you'll be added in the not too distant future. I'm happy cause I'm already living in PNG.

Bro or sist, there are two sides to every story. On the other hand whoever you referring to as the snob could say the say to you, why didnt you go up to him/her and say hi. It goes both ways. Em mas sem nogut em kam tok hallo long you na you ino toktok gut long em or kain something olsem so em too keep to himself. Again what is yr reason for not saying Hi???????????????
No one is a snob, if you toktok long ol na ol snobim u thats narapla story...

Talk about hitting the nail on the head

dats exactly what i did the first few times went up to them and said hi or greeted them as they passed me and they just looked as if i was not there or even as if i was not even a PNGuinean man how much more clearer can i make it when i'm speaking pidgin to them.
anyway i guess some people just like to be left alone.
July 9 2009, 5:04 PM
Could be, just accept it and move on wantok....anyway u stap back long PNG nau. Maski giaman u laik stap stret long Brisbane ya u tok, but nogat way gen, back to PNG.
I am glad to be out of PNG and living in Australia...PNG em bagarap pinis...no hope...
Everyone I know ol PNG lain ol save dai stret long kam long aussie but the question is how bai ol kam.....hehehe

well i guess all i can say is you remove all ties with PNG. I'm proud to be a PNGuniean and am not ashamed of the state of my country you can't compare my PNG with other countries that are years older than PNG and start to look down on PNG. It's just like me seeing how you would fare up against Michael Jordan in a one on one basketball game......you wouldn't stand a chance I know, so don't do that to PNG.
As much as I would like it to change for the better it aint gonna happen overnight or it's not as easy as you jumping on a plane and running away to another country (easy rider)

I BET SOME WHITE PRICK FCKD YOU TOOK YOU TO LIVE IN AUSSIE.
July 9 2009, 5:25 PM
man y the hell do you think we came here, to get the freek away from you morons.
a nod is fine , just a friendly juesture saying hi and acknowledging someones presence.
but please dont come up to me and try to strick a conversastion, its just sad./....
this is usually the conversation
1 - "u"
2 - jus raun chol
- and then theres that akward silence
its fkuing ridiculous
if i see you ill just nod and say hi from a distance, do not aproach me because i WILL snob you and walk in the opposite direction...

Amen to that. I agree with you 100% Often when see alot of the Png squad in Brissy they act like your made of stone or just plain rude. Nogat toksave nothing even when you make the first approach. Here in NSW when I see a wantok I say hi , or smile and get recognition back . But when in Brizzy I get the feeling alot of ppl are not on the same planet let alone from the same country. Even goes to the extent of family living in Brizzy, who turn up there noses because you buy cloths from DFO and not the best shop in Town. I agree ppl get off your high horses and start being real. Be Proud of Where your from , no matter how bad the country is. Its still your home and your NOT better off just cause you live in Brizzy. Em tasol na likem

That is Why

Just a message like this one is why nobody is friendly anymore.. It don't make a damn where Your from, cause we all have a heart with feelings. It don't take much just to say hi in passing by another human being..For the love of God ppl. that is why we are here is to be kind to one another.. thats what makes the difference in this world.
I have love for all ppl no matter what part of the world we live in...Try being kind///It helps

no one is complaining about how you found your way down here or who paid for your school or even who the hell Philomena Kelegai is so stop deviating and stick to the argument and stop swearing shows that your still immature in the head and not mentally prepared to be exposed to the western way of life your better of back in YOUR VILLAGE!
I hope your ashamed of yourself as you read this what I'm talking about is called courtesy sapos yu no save alright em ya mi tokim yu pinis. Lo tok pisin em olsem pasin blo luksave lo ol narapla. People like you who are mentally immature shouldn't be allowed to leave your own country let alone your village!
And to those who say they're happy to leave PNG and get away from the hard life etc......I say your one of the easy riders and wont get anywhere in your life. I live in brisbane and have a high regard of my home PNG and wouldn't give it up for a western world. I think you speak for yourself and your family and not the rest of the PNGuineans in brisbane.

u are a easy rider ur self, anyone tink ur still in moresby, wat doin in brissy than, go back home or wake up to urself...
July 12 2009, 8:06 PM
Tru! Tru! Pretend and snobbish ya stap long Brisbane ya! Just coz you are in Brisbane Australia does'nt change your origin. Facial features and skin colour ya tokim stret ya maski long acting nabaut! It only takes a short phrase like " monin or apinun wantok" em tasol. Nobody is interested in why you are in Brisbane and what you are doing. Just be friendly, it does'nt cost a cent. Trupela tok, Red Rose

Why can't you leave Philma Kelegai alone? Seriously. what does she have to do with this posting?
You are fuked up!

I thank the good creator for creating png-ans - who make a big thing out of something trivial and a small thing out of matters that are important. Articulations of png-ans always brings a smile to my face...mi tok mipla killim wansait. We should be called the most humourous people on the planet....seriously, thank you for never ending homour.

whoever you are (firstname.lastname@example.org) for your information
1. I'm here on my own merit not because of any other reason like you!
2. Everyone who knows me (and there's a lot of people) knows that I never ignore friends or fellow PNGuineans in other parts of the world for that matter.
So keep your smart ass comments to yourself and try to hide yourself in the future (if you have the brains to do it) it's not hard to track your IP address.......Oi namo o lasi..........
