It has been several weeks since I updated this blog during which time a lot has happened and more will happen in the near future. On Mothers day, we offered a BBQ to attract families from Madang after the guests had lunch beside the pool, they went on a leisurely stroll through the gardens of the Madang Resort and Kalibobo Village.
I spoke to a number of them all of them indicated that they had never had the opportunity to see the property and were amazed at the beauty of the gardens, the fish ponds, lagoons, aviaries, orchids and new buildings now complete.
I thought to myself that we should really provide something different to get the Madang Residents to visit both the Madang Resort and Kalibobo Villlage. This has resulted in us initiating a "Kalibobo Open Day" the first of its kind at least in PNG and in addition to allowing access to the property, the senior staff have organised an action packed program that will provide plenty of activities for the kids including kayaking, fishing, tennis, swimming, snorkelling, diving, harbour cruises, treasure hunts as well as a sausage sizzler BBQ lunch to be served at various parts of the Resort.
In addition to the fun activities, we will set aside rooms, conference rooms, the kitchens, laundry so they can be inspected. Businesses, educational institutes and NGO's in Madang will be invited to set up displays so they also can explain to the public what they do, and how they contribute to the economy.
We have also decided to support the establishment of the City Mission in Madang, at present they have successful branches in Port Moresby and Lae where the youth are given opportunities to learn basic skills in order to provide them opportunities. Larry George and his wife the founder of City Mission in PNG will attend to explain all about thier plans for Madang.
Finally, the former Prime Minister of PNG, Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare will attend to open the Kalibobo Haus Kibung and the new Haus Win Restaurant followed by a cocktail party. The media in PNG have been invited and we expect wide coverage in PNG. So this is what we intend to do to make the Madang Resort and Kalibobo Village better well known to the Madang residents!
