spirit

‘Send it out to the universe, let it fly away. Send it out to the universe. Whatever’s meant to be, will be.’*
Yesterday I attended the wedding of a colleague and dear friend on a wine farm in Franschhoek. It was sweet, whimsical and spiritual, exactly like the couple themselves. The intimacy of inviting only 20 close friends and family, allowed them to engage with guests on a personal level. I particularly appreciated a ceremony where we were invited to attach a personal message to a balloon, present this to the bridal pair who then released all the balloons into the air. Instead of hoarding wishes in a sealed box, they physically placed all these beautiful sentiments on the wings of a spirit much higher than us. Here’s to love and all the happiness this beautiful world has to offer. Embrace it, then let it fly.
*Lyrics from a song by Samantha James off her album ‘Rise’

frivolous friday

Rich burgundy curtains parted. I sauntered through. Into an ostentatious world of glamour and magic. That is Vaudeville. Cape Town’s hottest dining and entertainment destination.  Burlesque Supper Club played host to a delightfully mischievous production called Magical Mayhem – and they delivered the promise which the title implied. Decor, food, brilliant performances from local and international artists – everything was superb. 

I couldn’t resist offering you a sneak preview
Any further attempt on my part to describe the evening’s decadent frivolity, may weaken the impact of the assault on your senses when you eventually decide to indulge yourself. A night out such as this, needs to be experienced.

made in sa

February 12, 2010

I chose to avoid Jacob’s diatribe last night. According to Gareth Cliff on 5FM this morning, and as I had secretly thought, it turned out to be nothing but a laundry list of promises and good intentions. Jacob did however say one thing which resonates strongly with me. He extended support and well wishes to 2010 Fifa LOC* CEO  Danny Jordaan , the Bafana Bafana team and coach Carlos Albertos Parreira during the upcoming World Cup.(Who would have thought we could possibly have anything in common) 

I was blessed with the opportunity to show my support to the team in November last year. Adidas SA is currently running a national marketing campaign to promote the event, support the team and (of course) increase brand awareness. Huge pieces of fabric are being transported around the country for autographs and personal messages to the team. The final product – a giant Adidas football jersey – will be unveiled and presented to the SA team at the opening of the 2010 World Cup. 
I may not have expectations of us winning the World Cup – but I am proudly South African.

perfect timing

February 11, 2010
Thanks to Jacob, all city centre roads were blocked off, causing major traffic jams during peak hour. Thanks to Jacob, I left work much later than usual to avoid a frustrating commute; irritated nonetheless.
Feathered guests at my gate
I arrived home at the perfect time. 15 minutes earlier and I would probably have missed my featherd guests. (ohhh! this is so challenging but I guess I’ll say it. Thanks Jacob)
