  • A vehicle is not just a means of transport. A vehicle is a reliable tool of communication, it gives the opportunity to actually talk face to face and not just whatsapp or facebook chat. A car is a money making tool, it gets you and your product or service where it needs to be, for maximum profitability. A car can be a life saving tool, if your loved one is sick you can bring them to the nearest health facility and get proper medical attention. A vehicle can get you to your perfect rest and relaxation destination whenever you need a break from the rigors of daily life. A vehicle is indeed one of the most useful tools that you invest in. It is vital for you to ensure that you are taking care of and protecting this investment. Protection not only means the daily checks on fluids, nuts and bolts, pressures and cleaning as best you can; but a more profound means of protection called ‘insurance’.   What is insurance? Insurance generally speaking, is an arrangement you make...

  • Papua New Guinea presents an exciting opportunity for anyone that loves travelling the unpaved path. The most amazing views, the most pristine beaches and the coolest rivers require some radical off road experiences!    For the majority of Papua New Guineans the road ‘home’ often means unsealed roads,  zero bridges, wet crossings, kilometers of loose gravel, mud and at times almost 45-degree-angle drives uphill on unpaved, rock and root ridden roads. Rural PNG roads are perfect testing grounds for off-road vehicles and thrill seekers. In rural PNG, you will notice that the most preferred, the most driven off roader is the Toyota Land Cruiser Troop Carrier, or as it's commonly known, the ‘10 seater’. Mining companies, non-government organizations, security firms, government departments all prefer a version of the LC to provide logistical support for their rural teams. But is the Toyota LC the best off-roader?  A vehicle that in all appearances seems to match the LCs...
  • Pom City Markets | Source: Pascoe Promotions Port Moresby is a great place to live and work. There is always something to do but most times fun things to do for one member can mean boredom for different members of the family. Frequently, what Mum wants to do is not fun for the kids, or what the kids want to do can be financially draining for parents. Perhaps you are a visitor to our multifarious city and are looking to take home a souvenir or two? If you are looking for a particular PNG traditional basket, mat or necklace; or maybe you'd like to know what a traditional polynesian or melanesian tattoo would look like on you?  Marketmeri.com has the perfect solution for you. The Pom city markets are one of very few events that are open to the public and happen from morning until night (8am - 8pm). They occur every second Saturday of every month at the Sir John Guise Stadium, in that field in front of the Indoor Complex. The location is safe, safe parking is provided and gate...
  • Source: Technogoondu We all do not want to lose memories of precious moments. We all want good quality images of those memories. Whether a beautiful scene, an epic event like a wedding, a 21st birthday party,  or if you need to take pictures for legal reasons - you want to have clear images of what you are supposed to be seeing. Although a good camera is the best way to capture and save these moments - a camera is beyond most budgets, a camera cannot be inconspicuous, a camera can be chunky and you can’t climb a tree, jump across a flooded creek with a camera when you need to, if you are in a moment. In these circumstances what is best is a good phone camera where you don’t have to fiddle with the lens, aperture or shutter speed - you just look, point and capture that precious moment.  This is why we have 5 features to look for when choosing a phone for its camera. 1.Optical Image Stabilisation Optical Image Stabilisation or OIS is a feature that is built into...
  • Many of us Papua New Guineans did not grow up having electronic gadgets around the house. The most that we got exposed to was a transistor radio and perhaps a box television set. The generation that are in their early thirties right down to the children of today are a different story! Most touch a mobile phone before they can walk. To them it’s a norm that everyone has a mobile phone and having a laptop is something that is as common as having a front door. Second to the mobile phone - a laptop is the most common electronic device in any urban Papua New Guinean home. What is a laptop? If you ask google, it will tell you that a laptop is a computer that is portable and suitable for use while travelling. A laptop basically offers everything a desktop computer offers but with the added advantage of being portable. Who Uses laptops? These days EVERYONE uses a laptop! Toddlers and children that can’t speak or walk are shown clips of nursery rhymes and sing-alongs,...
  • Papua New Guinea’s road conditions take their toll on every vehicle’s alignment and suspension, never mind the tyres and rims. Although a smaller vehicle is preferred because of 1) the easier maneuverability, 2) easier and cheaper access to parts, 3) the ease to maintain your vehicle yourself and of course 4) cheaper registration. Unfortunately our roads create a huge disadvantage for sedans and while most of us would prefer to own a ute the cost of maintenance make that a major deterrent. This has made the SUV or sports utility vehicle, fast become one of the most seen on all PNG roads. Why SUVs are the answer for PNG? SUVs have many off-road capabilities yet they’re ‘dressed up’ as a taller and wider sedan, with a much larger ground clearance. For any Papua New Guinean who has to do large grocery or fresh market produce shopping at various times in a year,  the large trunk space and an interior almost as spacious as any ute also makes any SUV pretty attractive....
  • Marketmeri.com is your best platform to sell products online in Papua New Guinea - that is a given. This why there more than 56, 000 followers on facebook and more than 1,800 have subscribed to our weekly newsletters. It is the best at selling to Papua New Guineans. There are thousands that have set up accounts and sell hundreds of their products at a time faster - through Marketmeri but there are a handful that have highly marketable products but aren’t finding interest as quickly as they should. This handful of sellers find it difficult to sell not because there is not a demand for their product but simply because the product doesn’t look appealing. When someone is searching for a particular item online they cannot touch and feel or smell the item. That is why if one wants to market something online - it MUST be attractive or pleasing to the eye, it must be an accurate representation, it must give as much information about the product as possible and must be up-to-date. No...
  • “When women have access to finances, credit, technologies and markets, they are likely to expand their businesses and contribute effectively to sustained economic growth and development,” UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. The government of Papua New Guinea recognizes that women need to be active players in the business industry in order for the PNG economy to maintain and sustain its current growth. For this purpose the government has sanctioned certain non-government organizations to focus on empowering women to venture into small businesses. One such organization is the Women’s Business Resource Center (WBRC). The WBRC was opened in 2016 by American NGO Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and is jointly funded by the Australian and US governments. It offers women access to business information and services, training and support in a secured environment together with free onsite childcare services. Margaret Aila, program manager  for the WBRC appreciates...
