It’s tourist season and summer holidays, but I have the beach all to myself.


It takes me only a 15 minute drive from town to Sunset Beach up the West coast, and when I get there I feel like the only person on this planet:


I cannot believe that so close to the buzzing city I can look down the beach either side and see no-one for miles.



How can this piece of paradise still feel untouched, as if everyone else yet needs to discover it.


Well, the dogs love it just as much as I do, as we can walk and run and go about however we like without bothering anyone.


Total freedom.






There is a new festive season market you can add to your list of gems for Christmas shopping:

The CTICC launched The Gift Fair from Friday, 29 November to Saturday, 30 November 2019.

150 capetonian entrepreneurs exhibited their products ranging from decorations, consumables, arts and crafts, clothing, accessories, jewellery, health and beauty, to gadgets and children’s educational tools and toys.



There was plenty choice of unique personal and even personalised gifts with some special treasures:

The fourth industrial revolution is coming and Africa needs to get ready.


The Africa Future Summit helps accelerating development, as it caters for organisations at grassroots level.


Often tech events happen where tech is readily available: in the City Center. However, the CBD is not easily accessible for disadvantaged people.

The Africa Future Summit solved this all too often ocurring non-inclusivity by partnering with the YMCA.


In South Africa the YMCA in Athlone was chosen, an area that has been plagued with increase of violent crime over the past years.

But the YMCA is on the outskirts right next to the Athlone Stadium, a good landmark not to get lost. So even a few of the ususally included city people made it out to Athlone.


The event itself was packed, people pouring out of the main hall for a break, exhausted from all the information that was presented. And that was just the morning session. The afternoon session was where all the bootcamps came in.

It was a young crowd, full of aspiration and ideas. At the Africa Future Summit they got ignited to actively making the future of Africa happen.


The tour teaches fundamentals of frontier tech investments, startup development and ecosystem building via exclusive sessions with award winning local and international experts.

Each country features its own combination of on site workshop training, networking round tables, live Q/A sessions with speakers and sponsors, attendee spotlight features, exhibitor showcase demos and VIP networking.

To accelerate developments within Africa’s tech ecosystem, the agenda curriculum includes training sessions on future technologies (Ai, Blockchain, Virtual Reality, Space, Nanotechnology, Internet of Things etc.) and career development sessions on personal branding, digital entrepreneurship and the future of work.


Attending the Africa Future Summit makes you future-ready, from the grassroots level up.

Joey Fourie, the host of The Daily Music Show, welcomes everyone at the closing event for Reclaim Agency 2.0.


If you’re in Cape Town only for a short while and still want to experience the rich and cultural heritage of the Cape, go see The Daily Music Show.


But beware: The Daily Music Show is not just easy-listening entertainment.

The music lyrics, spoken poetry and art exhibitions challenge every visitor on a profound level of understanding, tourists and locals alike.

The Daily Music Show speaks to everyone, newcomers to Cape Town as well as South African icons, as it reaches out on different levels of context: Everyone can connect on broad references to South Africa, and a few also get the finer nuances with the sideline remarks that can go so very deep.


Every show is different.

The variety of the acts is like a roller coaster ride of emotions, from a mellow infusion of jazz to touching storytelling back to party vibes and dancing.

All the acts are of high quality and caliber, delivering their message straight to your heart.


The Daily Music Show is not just an experience of Cape culture, but also an insight into the struggle it took to keep these cultures alive during apartheid.

These are real stories of activists challenging the status quo through art.


But see for yourself how impactful the performances are:


Don’t miss your chance to experience Cape Town’s eclectic culture live at The Daily Music Show.

#GoBokkies! How amazing that the Springboks won the Rugby World Cup!

And they’re having such a blast ever since!

It started with Faf meeting Prince Harry in his underpants, well, his lucky speedo.

Hilarious jokes were played with Faf’s hair.

The Springboks’ bus parade was lined with men dressed in the “faf speedo”.

And now Faf is turning all this publicity into a good cause:

Faf is challenging men to be ballsy and take the #FafDeKlerkChallenge to create awareness around testicular cancer.

Faf himself is leading by example as he does not miss one opportunity to show off his lucky speedo:

It’s easy to forget that there are still people out there who don’t have access to the internet.

About half the global population actually.


And some of these people live only 10 minutes from the CBD, in the heart of Africa’s leading tech capital: In trendy up and coming hipster Woodstock.


At least, that’s what the internet says. And now that there is finally internet in Woodstock, it must be right. 😉

I’m not a rugby fan. But I’m a World Cup fan.

Of course I’m supporting South Africa, but I didn’t want to go to a public viewing, as I’m busy painting the Ranzani Salt & Pepper Grinders.


We don’t have a TV, so I decided to give the good old radio a go.


I don’t even understand half of the rules of rugby, I normally only watch it because my South African friends are watching it.


So listening to it with no picture was really hard at first:

Sometimes the commentators would only shout out the names of the players who passed on the ball, and I don’t know which team they play on, let alone what position.


So I listened harder, with concentration, and that allowed me to follow the game:

Every now and then the sports reporters were summarising the manoeuvres, as the action happened too quickly to describe every move.

Not only did they outline the mistake of a player leading to a penalty, they also reasoned why this mistake had happened and the potential outcome had it not happened.


This insight mixed with the true passion of the commentators made for an emotional listening experience, continuing still after the Springboks had won with broadcasting the victory ceremony.

The Springboks celebrate their Rugby World Cup win.

Based on this I recommend to rather listen to the radio coverage of a game, even while watching it on TV.

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.
