Public debate seems to have been replaced by some vandalism recently. We’re not sure how we feel about that. Just imagine the chaos if everyone decided to have their say on someone else’s property?
I don’t mean to point out the obvious, but our lives are based on the internet, and the internet in this country is pretty slow and expensive. But now it’s getting faster yippeeee!

There is nary a soul in the greater Cape Town metropolitan who has not indulged in a late night prego roll/steak pie/box of Grandpa/Yogi Sip/SteriStumpi/R15 litre of milk while filling up their car at the Engen On Orange, AKA Club Orange. My personal preference is the 125g bag of Woolworths Fruit Pastilles. It is a […]

Wowsers, this competition is genuinely off the hook! And don’t you just love it when companies put their balls on the line? Using words like “Free” and “lifetime” in the same sentence?
