Scott Waide's new blog

Well-known Papua New Guinea television journalist Scott Waide has created his own blog Papua New Guinea – My Land, My Country on this URL

“Welcome to my most recent attempt at a blog,” Scott writes.

“I live in Port Moresby.

“I am a television producer for an international news media organisation.

“As much as possible, I try to update this blog daily.

“It contains a collection of my very own poems and stories some written nearly 10 years ago.

“This is an attempt to show my country, Papua New Guinea as a nation in transition with its challenges brought on by half a century of rapid urbanisation.

“Through the poems and stories I hope you will see beauty through this rich kaleidoscope of different cultures.

“My perspective is that of a Papua New Guinean raised in an urban setting.

“We are a people so beautiful and resilient yet very much misunderstood by our global neighbors.

“We are creative.

“We are expressive.

“We are Papua New Guinea.

“Please enjoy!”
