They saw that the E-Toll is not working and there is still a lot to be done at Nkandla and there is no money SO ... the only other place they can get it is at the petrol station as the Taxi's bosses and drivers do not look at the oil price index. hmmmm +Danie van der Merwe  and +Warren Ferguson I am sorry to go of like this but with everything that Mandela and De Klerk tried to establish is starting to break down. 

Yesterday they took the decision to take down the statue of Cecil John Rhodes where will it end?

A global embarrassment of our country, thankful Mandela doesn't have to see the shame his party has brought upon the country we all love.

I wear hats, not ties. I open doors for ladies, bully around pixels. Enjoy exercise and training, but have a devout relationship with my couch. I live to design and my job is awesome, that's it... no flip-side to it... to design is to create, to create is to be god like, can't seriously complain.
Introduction

I have become rather enveloped in the social media wave as well as the explosive tech industry that has come about in the last few years, most of my tech thoughts are published on memeburn.

Also as a side note, a Designer, Photoshop junkie, stalker of internet trends, utterly addicted to Google. Oh yeah, and in love with my iPhone

Have Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design specialising in Advertising. Now I know thats practically saying I’m good at making pretty pictures that lie to you, but I swear I’m one of the good guys… honest… no really… stop looking at me like that…

I have accumulated experience in both print and web media over the years working with and pitching to a wide range of clients from CocaCola and FNB to local fashion designers and Chamber Orchestra of Johannesburg.

In 2010 I started Mind Camp Technologies with great developer colleague Joaquim Rodrigues and we have been helping a wide, and some times weird, variety of clients with their digital needs.

Really great place for a healthy lunch!! they have a unique menu with amazing food, I really love going here. I had a Caesar Salad with Feta fritters last time and it was amazing which is an impressive thing to say about one of the most common salads but it was great. It's reasonably priced, especially for how eclectic their food is and the vibe is always laid back and chilled. It has a slight feminine feel to it, which I'm sure is due to the two ladies who own and run the place. I can't remember their names but one was more the inspirational cook and the other was the lively and welcoming host.

Really great place to take in the trendy Rosebank vibe. Get there early though for Lunch as it is always packed and they don't do bookings. The food is good though a bit more pricey than it should be, the coffee is great though. The outside area is really nice but I love the inside because they have this really cool décor idea of hanging books from the ceiling. The waiters are a chance some are awesome while others act if they are doing you a phenomenal favour but I guess that goes with many restaurants, I just really notice it here.

Great place to chill and have a coffee while watching people walk by. It's located just on the corner of the alley way through the zone leading to the outside courtyard. The barista's are quite lively and very friendly every time I see them. Not sure if all the Vida E Caffe's get their baked goods from the same place but I highly recommend their Large Choc-Chip Cookies, they are a bit pricey (considering they are just one cookie) but they are really delicious.

I wanted to propose to my girlfriend by the fire place (to show the ring in the flickering light) in Moyo's, a favourite of ours since I had taken her there on our first date. I called 2 days before the official day and booked to have the table in front of the fire and have rose petals on the table. On the day, as we walked in and the waiter directs us to our table, I see that not only is it without any rose petals but its been moved to the small side wall perpendicular to the fire (you can't even see it, never mind feel the warmth from there). What they had done instead was, in front of the fireplace I had asked and booked for they had a large 6 seater ready and reserved. I guess they thought they would get more money out of the new booking so they just shoved our lowly 2 seater reservation aside. Naturally I was livid as my plans for the climax of an elaborate day of planning events culminating in a beautiful dinner in what I thought was a top level restaurant turned out to be a massive slap in the face. I was not about to ruin our night by making a big fuss at the time, but was certainty not going to repay the restaurants shameless greed and insult with patronage so I just told the waiter I was very disappointed with them and left. I chose to propose to her beside the lake, after I collected myself and made sure she couldn't see how upset I was (She said yes by the way) but I assure you, I will never forget nor will we ever dine in this establishment again! You would have had regulars, most certainly for all anniversaries and engagement parties but instead I will tell any one who will listen that Moyo's could care less about service to customers, and will, without hesitation, drop patrons if they see a chance to get more cash elsewhere.

The PRESTIGE CINEMA!!! Seriously, this is by far the best cinema around. Now to clarify, I'm not saying it's the prestige cinema as in it's the elite one, they actually have a few (10 I think) but they have made one cinema special and called it the Prestige Cinema and wow, just WOW. The way they've set this place up is that there are only a few seats available this is because each seat is a massive fully reclining lazy-boy chair. They have a separate lounge complete with an exclusive booth for selling popcorn etc . The best part though, at least for me, is that you can order cappachino's with cake and they will deliver it to you at your seat and place it on your own little table just before the movie starts. Warning: It will ruin you cinema experience in all lesser plebeian level cinemas from then on.

Brilliant qualified friendly service. I wanted to start riding for fitness and save on petrol, so researched a bit (The world of bicycles has changed massively since we were kids by the way) so I had a rough idea of what I wanted. Walked into the lively store and was greeted by ample ready staff, one of whom by the name Ozi helped me out. First asking what kind of bike I was looking for and then finding the right size and model for me and my beginner's budget. It was great, he recommended riding around the back courtyard to get a feel for the bike to make sure it was right for me and as luck would have it Ozi's recommendation felt great! He also helped me out with the necessary starter accessories such as a helmet, pump, water bottle etc all of which he volunteered to open and attach to the bike. So now I have a brand new, reasonably priced, mountain bike. Oh yeah, and I'll be back, since they give you a few complimentary bicycle services when you buy from them. Really great atmosphere and awesome staff!
