Mary Poppins- not quite how I remember it!

Mary Poppins

As I recall ‘Mary Poppins’ as a feel good movie, that made us remember the good in people. I recall incorrectly. It wasn’t at all about that. Check out the clip to see the true Mary Poppins.

Inmates Dancing MJ

There’s nothing more exciting than a choreographed dance. In fact I wish I lived in a choreographed world, where people spontaneously burst into dance! It truly makes me happy. So when I saw these guys dancing on the news last night I joined in, and frankly so should you! Although I can’t quite imagine Michael Scofield breaking it down like these guys.

Cape Milner Hotel Rocks!

Musings

Awesome view from pool area.

Awesome view from pool area.

Summer in Cape Town is amazing, it really is, it’s rad, kiff, hectic, vibey and it’s totally like shwaa bru! What is not awesomeness is not having a pool. Don’t get me wrong, I have a great flat, but it’s up in the air and apart from my bathtub, it does not have a proper cooling fascility. So imagine my total hysteria when I found the Cape Milner Hotel in Tamboerskloof. Their pool fascilities are open to the public (that’s you and me Joe) and as long as you use the bar you are allowed to mill(ner) around for as long as you want.

Julie Andrews Favourite things

Soon I’ll have a friend from Germany coming to stay with me for a month and I started thinking: “What will I show her? What’s cool in Cape Town? Where is Germany? Should I make pasta tonight?” All these things started running through my mind untill I finally realised that I should compile a guide to my Cape Town -What I like to do and where I like to go. So, in true Julie Andrews style: These are a few of my favourite things:

5 Year old wunderkind plays drums like pro.

Musings

I’m not really one for cutesy YouTube videos featuring cats chasing their tails, but this is just too cool. I don’t know much about music, well apart from the fact that nothing gets a party started like some ABBA or Roxette! Love the Swedes. But this is outright genius.

Tumi Morake

Musings

TumThe lovely Tuminatori Morake is one of those little blessing we have in our country. Not only is she incredibly funny but she is also talented, professional and to top it all off, she is actually really super duper nice. My cellphone once fell in the toilet  at a gig I was doing in Durban (yes I admit it, I was sending an sms on the loo- oh come on, we’ve all done it) and Tumi came to my rescue. She immediately fetched her hairdryer to save my phone from near death. Unfortunately my phone didn’t make it, but it did look a lot more fashionable after Tumi styled it.

Apart from her heroic feats, Mrs Morake is one of our countries top comedians and I got the opportunity to interview her, yip that’s how I roll.
