    How to survive Valentine’s Day if you’re a kick-ass single person like me

How to survive Valentine’s Day if you’re a kick-ass single person like me

You may have noticed that there’s been a lack of “what to do this Valentine’s day” type posts on my blog this year… Why? Because well, I just didn’t really feel like it to be honest… (technically there was that one post about the V&A giving away some great Valentine’s experiences – but who […]

Sharing the melktert / milk tart love

I’ve been having major cravings for this amazing korslose melktert (aka crustless milk tart) my mom used to make when I was growing up…  You see I’ve never really liked the crust they use to make regular milk tart, so this version became the perfect option for me.

So then last week I decided to […]

Happy long Easter weekend everyone…

Just a quick one to say Happy Easter to all those who celebrate it.  Hope everyone has a fantastic long weekend, whatever your plans.

If you’re driving anywhere, please be safe.  If you’re staying home, remember to put those feet up.  And most importantly, if you’re planning on causing some trouble, take photos. 😉

I plan on spending […]

My favourite Cape Town sunset moments of 2013

I’m lucky enough to have a pretty kick-ass view of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head from my place.  Then add to that a front row seat to some amazing sunsets and you get the reasons why I feel a little bit better about the ridiculous levies I have to pay every month. 😉

But seriously, […]

My Love Affair with Cape Town will be taking a short break…

I will be honest, 2013 was a pretty poo year for me on the personal front, and therefore I’m really looking forward to seeing the back end of it and welcoming in the new year.  2014’s going to kick ass, I can just feel it…

But as the year is now winding down, I figured […]

My Love Affair with Cape Town has successfully migrated

Right… It’s been a bit of a journey, I won’t lie… but I’ve finally managed to move from the free WordPress platform to my very own, shiny new self-hosted website.

Migrating all my posts and images and links and and and from the last 2 years was quite a mission.  But luckily I had the […]

My Love Affair with Cape Town is moving hosts…

Hey guys,

Just a quick one to say that there could be some downtime here on the blog this evening or tomorrow.

I’m porting from the free WordPress.com hosting option to a self hosted WordPress.org site so I can have a little more control.

The domain will remain the same however and you’ll still be able to […]

Your Friday smile source…

Meet “Pottie” (that’s short for Hippopotamus)… also lovingly known as “pig”:

Not only is he BFFs with the other coolest dog on the planet, Ralph (aka “wolf”):
Thus making up the adventures of wolf & pig…
But he’s also really into adventure sports.  Case in point this video of Pottie enjoying a little afternoon skateboarding session:

Did […]

Happy Friday everyone (warning, sarcasm inside)

It’s been a tough week (well for me at least).  And to top it all off, it’s cold as ballz out there.  So with that, I decided I’d welcome the weekend with some dark humour thanks to my favourite e-greeting site Someecards.com:

And a shout-out to all the single folks out there:

Hope everyone has a […]
