[...]
When I mentioned to the Friendly store owner last weekend that they should look into stocking the Robertsons Salt & Vinegar seasoning (I use it on popcorn – like at the movies), I didn’t expect it to appear on the shelves so soon. One week later, BANG, there it was. Nice job, Friendly store.
I have been dying for these pics from the GUESS fashion show which was held at Caprice at the end of last week. It was on the beach and was jam-packed with beautiful angels and slicksters, all melting into the Atlantic Ocean and Camps Bay sunset. 14 beautiful models dressed in the latest GUESS threads took to the ramp as table mountain glowed in the dusk. Click for the carnage..
With the Ass Flavour and Ass Food explosion experienced over the past year or so, it was only a matter of time before people would want to grow some ass at home. It would be dangerous to use your own ass to create different foods and drinks, so a big round of applause goes to Stodels nurseries who have stepped up to the plate.
Nando’s have taken things to the next level this time, with the appointment of their new “CEO.” His name is Kagiso and the whole ad rips off every ounce of the Trevor Noah Cell C ads. They mention 5G (rather than Cell C’s claimed 4G) and they even play with the Cell C ‘logo’ at the end. Full marks!
Researchers at NEC System Technologies have designed robots with the ability to identify dozens of different wines, cheeses and appetizers, because that’s something we need robots for. Except they think people taste like bacon.
A blog post written by Monica Gaudio was copied entirely and published in a for-profit magazine, Cook’s Source, without permission or payment. On contacting the publication, Ms. Gaudio was informed that “the web is considered ‘public domain’” and that she should compensate Cook’s Source for editing her work. Things have not gone well for Cook’s Source since then.
I was not aware that muffin’s had an ass, let alone a tail, or any other body part for that matter. Sure, humans do get ‘muffin top’ when their jeans are too tight, but I had never imagined it the other way around. Nonetheless, the Spar on Regent Road, Sea Point seem to be ahead of all of us and are now selling just the ass part of a muffin. Amazing!
Apple Launches New Macbook Air – At Apple’s keynote today, it was all about the Mac. “What would happen if a Macbook met an iPad?” asked Steve Jobs. “An iPad has instant-on. Great battery life, amazing standby time, solid state storage, and it’s thinner and lighter. What would happen if a Mac and an iPad [...]
To all the ex-pats and foreign readers out there…it’s October already and you’re leaving it pretty late, if you still haven’t booked your villa for your Cape town holiday. I mean, you ARE coming to Cape Town over December, right? Best you get moving – and 2oceansvibe Villas has something for every pocket. See what’s available after the jump.
My fellow 1800 fans will be pleased to hear that they have launched their new Summer Menu! And they’re doing it properly too, with a ridiculous new R169 Summer Menu Promotion. Unbelievably, that includes a glass of sparkling, starter, 200g rump (or sirloin of rib-eye) + signature sauce, dessert and underground parking at my residence, The Cape Royale Hotel!
The more trendy of our London ex-pats will know of Carluccio’s Caffès – a great place to meet over a drink and simple well-prepared Italian food, made on the premises. Although one extra thing seems to have been added to their New Bond Street Carluccio’s menu – something that certainly is Italian and hand-made, but not right there on the premises!
Marmite, Mrs Balls Chutney, Iron Brew, and Tropica. These are the flavours of my childhood, and every now and then, a craving hits, and the inevitable binge ensues. I know, I disgust myself. Happily, I’ve been vindicated by science. Get a child hooked on your product in their formative years, and you’ve got them for life.
One of the world’s most celebrated DJs, JIMPSTER, is playing live at Cafe Caprice on Saturday night. And, what’s more, his entire set will be broadcast live on 2oceansvibe Radio. So if you’re unable to make it, you can have your own little party on your ace in your bedsit in Balham! Good lord, it’s [...]
Anyone who went the first time will happily confirm it was the greatest party of their lives. Well it’s happening again – and it’s gonna be crazier than ever. Chicks in lumo bikinis and roller-skates are not uncommon at these Kings Of Neon parties (how awesome is that name?). Trust me, it’s off the hizzo! [...]
‘Madonna Chef,’ Neill Anthony offers exclusive services Top Cape Town Chef Offers Everything From Master Class To Supper Clubs – Branded “The God Of Food” by News24′s Cathy Marston, Neill Anthony is Cape Town’s most exclusive private chef and has cooked for the likes of Madonna, the Beckhams, U2, Elton John and can now cook [...]
Wow, and there I was thinking we were confused! With our London taxis on the roads and people singing Ole Ole at the sports stadiums, we certainly are a melting pot of cultures and have become professionals at ‘borrowing’ foreign nation’s ideas, pastimes and even sayings. Not that there is anything wrong with that – [...]
Big John interviewed Paul Raphaely from NoMU yesterday on 567 Cape Talk Radio, as they discussed NoMU’s nomination in the 567 Cape Talk Small Business awards! While that’s all very cool! And I think even more cool is the fact that Paul revealed how exactly NoMU got its name! Very funny story! I managed [...]
Usain Bolt – Biggest Deal EVER! Usain Bolt Signs Biggest Athletics Sponsorship Deal EVER With Puma – Usain Bolt has signed the biggest sponsorship deal in athletics history, extending his contract with Puma to 2013 and catapulting the triple world record holder into the kind of financial terrain usually reserved for star footballers. The exact [...]
Especially when they can’t get their daily McFix. I love McDonalds for one reason, and one reason only – the name is brilliant for McPuns (right, enough of that). But millions of people the world over express a deep and burning desire to consume their preferred McDonalds product each and every day, as the need [...]
We’re pretty blown away by the response to the “Seth Song” we’ve been playing fairly regularly, over at 2oceansvibe Radio. It’s not only a damn funny tune, but I tell you what – it’s got the heads bopping too! Apparently The Assembly lost their minds to it last Saturday! The guys behind the tune are [...]
Let me blow your mind: Nandos is in Canada. And no, Brandon Huntley didn’t franchise it. Shocking news, ey? I mean, Nandos must surely be as quintessentially South African as KFC, what with it’s Portuguese name, recipes and store decor. Nevertheless, the great chicken company in the sky is downright universal, making an appearance across [...]
Some of our parliamentary readers will be aware that yesterday the South African parliament was the scene of a death for the the first time since the the 1966 assassination of one Hendrik Verwoerd, esq. Louisa Phumela Zama, 27, was one of three people in a delegation representing a KwaZulu-Natal Reserve Force unit, the Durban [...]
So we wrote recently about Gordon Ramsay making an ever so slightly unceremonious exit from Cape Town, and specifically, the One & Only hotel. Needless to say, The Big Bad Potty Mouth and his cronies are slightly upset about this. I mean, it must leave a little bit of a sting to be tossed out [...]
When Sol Kerzner enlisted the expertise of the man who is arguably the world’s most popular chef, Gordon Ramsay, he would have felt confident that the star food aspect of his monstrous V&A Waterfront hotel, the One and Only, was buttoned tight. Gordon Effin’ Ramsay opened the five star Maze restaurant at the hotel, but [...]
So after an evening of sushi, springbok bruschetta, Belinni coctails, bubbly, and of course, Butlers Pizza (*COUGH* 2oceansvibe Radio launch COUGH*), there’s only one thing you eat for breakfast. And it’s not a bottle of Boschendal!
If you have a taste for sushi and other good food, and you haven’t tried ceviche, you simply must. Ceviche, for those of you who are uninformed, is a dish of unknown hispanic origin comprised of thinly sliced raw white fish, which is subsequently “cooked” in a thin bath of lemon juice, or a similar [...]
Just cruising over the sand in funny shoes. It’s one thing taking off your helmets (ta) but, let’s face it, that doesn’t make it ok.. Not ideal – taking your overseas guests for a lunch and exposing them to a pair of balls on a sunny weekend. Or your kids – let’s not forget about [...]
