Time Magazine has published photographs from inside Facebook’s Headquarters – taken shortly after Mark Zuckerburg was made Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year.

Here the lovely Jennifer, 2oceansVibe’s front of house, and barista-in-chief demonstrates the apparatus critical to the making of a fine cup. Notice the subtle angle of [...]

You know those times when you’re cruising on your Vespa, hitting the road with particular destination in mind? Perhaps you’re poodling up a mountain – perhaps not. It’s a bright, sunny late afternoon, some might even call it dusk. Light is thrown across the city scape below, and a slightly chilly wind is up. You think to yourself, “I could use some coffee right now”. Well you wouldn’t be able to get any, right? Wrong. So wrong.
I found myself absolutely killing it outside the vida e in Green Point this weekend, and I realised that I still haven’t told you about my new toy, the Vespa GTS 250 i.e. And that “i.e.” at the end doesn’t mean “id est,” as you often see in english sentences, it refers rather to the [...]

About three hours ago a Kalk Bay fishermen walked into the e.tv Studios foyer off Kloof Street, and demanded to see the News Editor of e.tv. Surprisingly, the arb fisherman was denied access to the ed by security. And then…And then he lost his temper.
Well I’m feeling much better about myself, now that Michael Corleone Al Pacino has become a “brand whore” (as they call it in South Africa) by doing his first endorsement – in the form of a 30 second TV commercial for Vittoria, a brand of coffee. I’m not quite sure what to think, other than [...]
Unbelievable scenes this morning at vida e on Kloof Street, as this photo of the great man was tweeted by “king_si” and forwarded to the 2oceansvibe Twitter account. It’s been a while since The TBG (Tall Blonde Guy) has been spotted around town. No doubt he has been overseas somewhere, curing the sick and mending [...]
It’s finally paid off – my constant musings and coverage of North Korea and, in particular, Our Dear Leader Kim Jong il, has resulted in a special invite from VISA to attend today’s game against Portugal! Why thank you, VISA! This is the first time North Korea has been in the World Cup since 1966! [...]
You can only imagine the zone you can get into, listening to some vinyl, with a joint in one hand and your new iPad in the other – on the day that Google Maps goes live with “Google Street View” for Cape Town. My God, I have traipsed every square inch of this city, all [...]

The poms seem to be acquiring a taste for SA’s favourite coffee, vida e. Either that, or the ex-pats are drowning themselves in the stuff! Both seem pretty plausible, mind you. That’s why I’ve arranged for vida e to give YOU a free coffee. That’s right, if you e-mail your UK physical / postal address [...]

Today was perhaps a prime example of how one can feel “the vibe.” The first step is obviously to recognise it – to realise that “the vibe” may be on. This usually comes in the form of a visual clue. There is normally a lot of blue in these clues to which I refer. For [...]
They seriously should have called it OnlineBrowniePoints.co.za instead of WooliesHampers.co.za, because that is essentially what it is. It’s an online machine that produces brownie points in exchange for a few mouse clicks and a credit card number. Seriously. It’s quite silly. Remember that hamper I bought last week for Marina, to celebrate the birth of [...]
So we had that whole 2010 World Cup Draw vibe, hey? Wow – very cool vibe! Why did 2oceansvibe Character “The Barndog“ have to be one of the main okes on the stage and involved with the picking of the balls? I’ll tell you why – because it’s like that, and that’s the way it [...]
