Ntokozo’s Bridal Party..

This by far, the most delayed post yet. Just about 5 months over due. My sister is now hitched – we fear it is the first and last wedding in the family! A trio organised a jolly affair. Happy Tears. Food. Champagne. Love, x

Aging is Not Lost Youth..

So, the dinner that I was a little too excited about blew me away. It was phenomenal and way beyond my expectations. For once, I had an outfit co-ordinated (by myself, of course) with Purity Ring and Oscar & the Wolf as my background music. I arrived 9 minutes late. Fashionably so. My best friend […]

Markets. Sushi. Gardens. Family..

What a beautiful weekend filled with laughter, dances, Thai spring rolls, sushi, family braai, a walk with monkeys and Hadeda Ibises and a relaxing Sunday. I started off the weekend with a catch up at the Musgrave Roof Top Night Market. I have moved away from just eating Falafels. I have discovered amazing Thai Spring […]

Munkay in Town..

“I am here for a good time, not a long time.” Yes, I did just quote a hip hop/rap song. It’s quite catchy and so true. Better make the most of it, right? This has made me realise, once again, that this year has been rather wonderful. Gratitude is all I can offer at the […]

Her Heart was a Secret Garden..

I decided to take a walk. Just before I could take an afternoon nap last Saturday, I stopped myself; I decided to go to the Durban Botanical Gardens. I was an hour late for a meeting that would have been held there and I thought it would be pointless to join the team that late. […]

Green Fingers and Dirty Hands..

The building itself is recycled! It is an old dilapidated house that has been transformed in to a homey, relaxing space. A […]

Chilly Ferry Boat Ride to Buyukada, Prince’s Islands..

The morning I decided to go to the Prince’s Islands, it was a little gloomy and really, a normal person could have postponed it. I was adamant though. I was set on going so I did. I should have dressed more appropriately, you know. Warmer clothes and the likes. I met an American (originally from […]

End of the Affair..

This is quite over due. As I have been travelling about, it has made me even more observant, become a better judge of character and enjoy the company of those that are genuine. The next couple of months are yet to be exciting. Can this year get any better? Yea, I hope so. It’s about […]

Istanbul: Belgrad Ormani, Long Bus Rides & Tea

Before I left for Istanbul, I had asked my host for any hiking spots nearby. His response, “Istanbul is hilly so every day will feel like a hike…or, you can go to the Belgrade Forest.” I was sold as soon as he said forest! Who doesn’t want to speak to the ents in the forest! […]

Istanbul: View from the Galata Tower and Sultanahmet

As you may have gathered, this was my favourite spot. I stopped by around the vibrant galata tower or walked passed it every day! This time, I decided to give up that 25 TL and take a trip to the top of the tower to see the breathtaking panoramic view of the city. It was […]
