The. Green. Mile

Tonight, I shall gauge if Hollywood did justice to Steve King’s, Green Mile.

Have you watched it? How was it?

SAB World of Beer  (3)

When I heard that the SAB World of Beer was voted the top tourist attraction in Jozi, I asked myself why haven’t I been there as yet. One Saturday, I decided to stop by before running some errands in Fordsburg. It was a superb choice.

 

Loved:

The efficiency of service.

The story behind of sweetheart SAB Miller.

The lunch at the bar on the top. Decent steak, egg and chips.

Curio shop stocks good quality merchandise at reasonable prices.

On par with the Heineken experience in Amsterdam.

Enjoy responsibly. Please don’t drink and drive.

Till next time.

I had a terrible experience at the local Spar in Midstream last night. Was overcharged once again! This is becoming so annoying. Makes me think that these guys are doing it on purpose because who really scrutinizes their receipt nowadays.
Wish I could purchase my daily upkeep at another supermarket, but we are kind of stuck for choice.

Also sent Spar South Africa an email complaint. Will keep you posted on how they respond.

Till next time.

Saturday. Well. Spent.

Just got back from the most exhilarating Saturday in a long while. After the usual meditation, I had an early start to downtown Jozi for a Ponte City and Hillbrow Walk. What an awesome experience!  This deserves a entire separate post which I’ll be doing later.

During the brisk walk,  we checked out so many fascinating aspects of Hillbrow and surrounds.

It was too early to return home so I punched in the GPS coordinates of Lusitoland and headed there. Boy, was that a brilliant decision! Again,  separate post is necessary for this fab event.

image

Food at the fair was incredible. Spicy and  delicious.

Ended the day in a befitting manner with a single malt at Cesco’s. If you ever nearby Centurion,  that’s another restaurant worth a visit.

Hope you enjoyed the post.

Another great review of the new BlackBerry Q10 from the guy who really does simplify technology.

The Techie Guy - Liron Segev

BlackBerry Q10

Will I still remember what to do ? How will it feel ? It is going to be as great as I recall it was ? – these are the questions going through my head as I get my hands on the new BlackBerry Q10 device.

The BlackBerry Q10 is the almost-twin-brother to the BlackBerry Z10 with two exceptions: It has the 10.1 operating system with various updates from the initial version 10 software that was shopped with the Z10 and the obvious QWERTY keyboard.

When you see the BlackBerry Q10 it looks like the BlackBerry Bold. However upon closer inspection it quickly becomes apparent how different the two devices are. The Q10 is LTE enabled and ready to connect at speeds not previously possible. It has a 3.1-inch 720p Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 330ppi and is 119.6 x 66.8 x 10.35mm and weighs 139g.

My. Favorite. Apps.

As many will know,  I have been singing praises for the Google Keep app. It really is prefect for my needs. A light note taker for when I have those moments of brilliance and just need to jot things down. The colour coding is a neat feature too.

Lately I’m finding good use for Keep during briefings that I attend. Quickly jotting down key points without losing eye contact with the presenter.

I just hope that our friends at Google come up with an interface that allows for sketching. Something similar to Papyrus. That would round off the app tremendously.

Just heard that the desktop version for Chrome is also out. Will make a note to download it tomorrow.

Example of Papyrus Sketch

So, if you own an Android based mobile,  why not give Keep a test drive. You too may be pleasantly surprised.

Till next time.

This is really a hidden gem in Pretoria. I  learnt of it by chance when browsing around Facebook and decided to visit the market one Saturday.

All I can say is – unbelievable. It truly is foodie heaven. The number of delights on offer is enormous. From the lamb shuwama,  roosterkoek, jaffles, dim sum to  korean food. My goodness, just make sure you go there hungry.

The vibe is on the chilled side, and thus is a good place for a family outing.

I loved it !!

Getting there:

My GPS navigator took me there quite easily. Hazel Food Market is situated in Greenlyn Village Centre in Menlo Park, open every Saturday from 08h00 to 14h00.

GPS Coordinates: 25°46”08.41”S 28°15”21.87”E

Just be prepared to be patient for parking. It can be chaotic at times.

Insider Tip:

Remember to walk around the back. There is a lady selling absolutely gorgeous pieces of  silver jewelry at good prices.

 

 

Simple. Gorgeous. Orchids.

There’s something wonderfully special about buying flowers for someone you care about.

Is not about the flowers themselves but more about the gesture. Flowers to me are essential in our our lifespace. They bring life to any surroundings.

Fortunately for me, my wife does not have any specific preference flowers. This allows me to really choose from the beautiful variety of flowers for her.

So the next time you want to do something special. Say it with flowers.

Awesome. Borlotti. Beans.

I was in a rush from work long after sunset today and stopped by my local Spar to grab some foodstuff. One of the items was a can of Borlotti beans. It was the first time I tried this bean and boy did it turn out to be a good choice.

After preparing in with some braised lamb, I recognised its distinct delicious,  velvety taste.  It was what people of Indian descent know as gadra beans.

wpid-IMG-20130418-00012.jpg

The fact that it was canned actually enhanced the creamy, nutty flavour.This is definitely going to be a regular item in our pantry from now on.

I would love to hear your thoughts  if you have tried this before.
