Wie is Jan Hus?


Moravian Hill rich in the history of moravian teachings, this was the venue of the travelling exhibition commemorating the 600th anniversaryand burning at the state by the Council of Constance.

Wie is Jan Hus?
In 1415, the Council of Constance, organized by the Roman Catholic Church between 1414 and 1418, sentenced Jan Hus (John Huss) to death. He was born in Bohemia in central Europe. The Council thus attempted to reunify medieval theology by condemning the then radical branch of Christianity represented by Jan Hus. This attempt, however, turned out to be traumatic for the Catholic Church. It lost power in central Europe, particularly in Bohemia, where the citizens were ready to spend their whole lives defending Hus’s legacy, even if it cost them their lives.

The exhibition was well attended by the Moravian community, to be honest I came late as I had another event to attend but from what I saw it was interesting as a recollection of the history of Jan Hus were displayed along the side of the church, speeches were made and the brass band performed a few items. After the event the people could discuss what was read and just catch up with old friends and meet new ones, we met the ambassador from the Czech Republic and a new friend from Germany, an exchange student teaching in Cape Town. We also learnt something about Jan Hus from one of the theology students of the Moravian Seminary, Jan was the rector of the University of Prague – I guess the more you know the more you are in a position to challenge.

Daar was ook ‘n lekker warme koppie koffie en snacks, die Morawiese gemeente weet mos hoe om te entertain.

Reach for the Stars


Have you ever just stopped and looked up at the night sky and watched the stars?

Today I attended a lecture on Astrophotography 101 not knowing anything about this, all I knew was that Astro are those colourful chocolate things and photography is well taking pictures o_O – put the two together and you taking pictures of Astro’s :-D.

Nah just kidding what got me was the last point on the presentation list – The Kama Sutra of Astrophotography hahaha yes they got my attention. The lecture was held at UCT to me this is like Hogwarts and today it was as we got lost trying to find the lecture theatre only to find it moved, this resulted in us missing a few minutes of the lecture o_O.

I don’t think we missed much though, the lecture was interesting as we got an introduction into the different ways of taking pictures of the stars ahhhhhh this is what Astrophotography is imagine the big bang in my mind hahaha. Words like Iso, long exposure and apature were thrown around like it is common knowledge and I was just like wow those pictures are cool. There are easy ways to take pictures with your mobile phone which I think I’ll try and also got some interesting info on the Big 5 of the African Sky….there is a lion up there and im going to find it ๐Ÿ˜€

The names of the Big 5 are to complicated for me to comprehend you can read more about this on the link below:

I bet you thinking what the Kama Sutra of Astrophotography is right, well I’m still trying to figure out what this is from what I saw though in the pictures some of the stars had tails from the way the earth moves – yeah stop thinking what you thinking thats dirty o_O hahaha.


Look at that view, now its time to look up at the stars at reach for the heavens ๐Ÿ˜€

Eyes wide open


2 Chronicles 7:14 New
International Version (NIV)
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their
wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Today South Africa celebrated Freedom Day, 21 years of Freedom still facing some of the same struggles we faced 21 years ago but I am positive that even though we are going through these struggles we as a nation can overcome them together.

It showed in a packed stadium on Saturday when the Stormers won the Bulls in a nail-biting encounter

โ€œSport has the power to change the world. It has the power to
inspire. It has the power to unite
people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a
language they understand. Sport
can create hope where once there was only despair. โ€œIt is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all kinds of discrimination.โ€ –
Nelson Mandela,
May 25, 2000

Today though it was something different that can change the world something more powerful, this is the power of PRAY, praying together a nation united. The Newlands Stadium was filled with young and old, people from different races, denominations, countries and backgrounds all united through PRAY to make a change and also just say THANK YOU for our freedom.

We heard confessions and revelations of the mighty power of THE LORD through pray, the lives that were changed, from drugs, gangsterism and other ills that face our youth – we were inspired through the passion of these stories and witnessing first hand the change in these peoples lives.

Angus Buchan, the man who led Mighty Men to tear-jerking confessions was also there to inspire the youth. We also saw Mi Casa in a different light at – least I did anyway, as they led us singing “Lift your hands to Jesus – Lord use me – Here I AM.”. They did however also give us some of their popular songs and abit of the late Ma Brrrr Brenda Fassie prompting the lady next to me to say “Ons kan ook jol vir die Here, sonder drugs”

It was an eye opening and inspiring event, one that brought a city together holding hands, despite the violence and heartache outside we stand united as Cape Town – together through PRAY we can heal a nation.

“It is the beginning of a new era. We have moved from an era of
pessimism, division, limited
opportunities, turmoil and conflict.”
– excerpt from Madiba Speech after casting the first vote in 1994

YTA – Youth Transformation Africa – We are generation fire – we stand united

Thank you to everyone involved in organising this event – truly blessed


I did the moonlight mass and NAKED bike ride before. I did a couple of 10km races before, I also participated in a swimming gala in primary school – That makes me a perfect candidate to become a TRYathlete right o_O.

I opted to be a spectator to the Discovery World Triathlon Series Cape Town, a ten city tour around the world with Cape Town, South Africa being the 4th stop. I was kinda sussing out my competition so to say haha, from what I witnessed these Elite men Tri-athletes must be superhuman.

Wrap your head around these stats for a minute before I continue:

The average speed during the swim is 60 seconds per 100m, the average speed during the cycle is 40km/h and the average speed during the run is 3min/km o_O – see what I meant by superhuman athletes.

Cape Town welcomed the top Elite men and Women to participate in arguably one of the most scenic and spectator friendly triathlons in the series, the swimming distance was shortened due to 750m due to water temperatures being too cold, this just added to the excitement of the day making it a faster, nailbiting event.


With Great Britains, Vicky Holland taking the elite womens crown yesterday it was up to Allistair Brownlee to keep the flag flying high today, 2012 Olympic gold medalist you would think this to be easy right…not with Javier Gomez Noya and homegrown favourite Richard Murray on the course with you though.


The swimming leg saw all athletes finish in a bundle congesting the first transition section – this went off smoothly under 60 seconds and they are off cycling its amazing to witness. With all spectators running towards the new revamped Greenpoint Athletics track I felt like a tri-athlete myself, inside the stadium atmosphere was electric as we cheered on the athletes during the 40km cycling leg of 8 laps through the stadium.


It was during the 10km run that the real action started, what an intense 30 minutes this was as the athletes started to make a break it was local hero Richard Murray who led the pack for a while everytime they came through the stadium it erupted with cheers :-D…- I guess nothing beats experience though as in the last lap Allistiar and Gomez broke away opening up a huge gap to continue where they left off in the Olympics finishing one and two respectively with French Athlete, Vincent Luiz overtaking Murray to take 3rd place.ย 


What a win for Brownlee who celebrated his 27th birthday on Thursday an awesome birthday present indeed but Gomez is still the lead athlete in the series.


Welldone to all participants you men and woman are a true inspiration to watch ๐Ÿ˜€

Shades of Freedom

Exploring visions of freedom through poetry, music and dance.

With Freedom day just days away the The Cape Cultural Collective and the Sendinggestig Museum treated us to a night of reflection through different art forms, from Bollywood dancers, deep rooted poems and soul enticing music this was definitely a evening of true reflection.

There was a time when we as South Africans could not gather like we did tonight, freedom was something we could only dream about, I say ‘we’ as I believe myself to be African not part of the struggle per say but definitely affected by the influence of the years our forefathers fought for our freedom. I acknowledge their sacrifice and appreciate the fact that I can be a part of such a gathering.

In the light of the recent Xenophobic attacks in our Country it was moving to see so many gathered to appreciate the immense local talent Cape Town has to offer. I have been to a few poetry sessions and I must say a poem is always more powerful when read out by the artist themselves, only they would know how to convey the correct emotion thought out through their poem.

Byron Clarke and Salim Ismail gripped the audience with their soulful voices and talent on the guitar, the energy was invigorating as we clapped and sang along to popular renditions of ‘Thinking out loud’ – Ed Sheeran , ‘Say Something’ – Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys – ‘No One’.


Each artist brought about their own energy and enthusiasm taking us through a journey of freedom with some fast paced Bollywood dancers in the mix too.


It was Ernestine Deane who closed off the evening with her unforgettable voice – a vocalist of phenomenal talent and lyricist inspired by the stories of Cape Town, South Africa and the everyday human experiences of love and life.

With such an array of local talent in our country we should be blessed and honoured to have the opportunity to call ourselves South African, we should embrace our freedom and also respect the freedom of others through love and life we will make this a better place for all.

Mexican Fiesta

I’ve watched a couple of Ice Hockey games at Grandwest between local rivals the Penguins and the Storms but this is the big leagues International Ice Hockey right on our doorstep.


The Ice Hockey World Championship (IIHF): Division B – Group B, a single round -robin series each team plays each opponent once, the winner of the Championship will be promoted to Division II A.

I wanted to watch the South Africa vs New Zealand game on friday but this was sold out – glad to see we behind our boys :-D…so I opted for my Mexican brothers vs Israel.

Like I said previously this is the big leagues they even brought in reinforcements right around the ring for the hard hits you see in the NHL – The first period saw Israel start off with a bang, their support cheering them on with enthusiasm.

I expected a little more people though but the atmosphere was still electrical – ohhhh and ahhhs with every big hit and shot stopping save. The period ended 1-1.

The second period started just as fierce as the first with Israel coming out with a bang, their keeper stopping a shot with ice cold precision. After 10 minutes you could cut the tension with a knife as the scoreline was still 1-1 but then a nice move in the middle and Mexico made it 2-1. The Mexican fans were uplifted and started chanting ‘mekiko mekiko’ – I guess this worked because they opened the floodgates and ended the period 3-1 with their keeper not really doing any work.


The third period just like the first 2 saw Israel start off fast with the Mexican keeper working hard to keep the scoreline as it was but hard work pays off and the crowd went wild as the score went 3-2 when Israel scored.

This was not enough and the Mexican chillies melted the ice adding another 2 goals – 5-2 to Mexico.


With 4 minutes left in the match we almost saw some fighting but the referee’s were on point throughout the match to avoid this, Ice Hockey is not for the faint hearted :-D. Israel’s coach must be good at motivating his team because after a quick time-out they scored making it 5-3 with 2 minutes left in the game, edge of your seat stuff.

In the final seconds of the match Israel pushing everyone forward even the goalie and paid the price as Mexico put the final nail in the coffin with an easy no goalie goal to make the final score 6-3 to Mexico.


An exciting match up of International Hockey – always better Live.

A perfect day the sun shining, happy faces gathered to get ready to make this a night to remember, the run started at 18:30 the point is not to win but just to have fun and make new friends. Run, cycle, skate, walk, skip, hop or jump your way around a 5km route at night with glow. The only rule is
“have fun”! – We were at Kenilworth Racecourse I’m sure if there were horses we’d be able to use them too :-D.

We opted to walk the route and take in as much of the beautiful night sky and experience the route to its full potential, with five “Glowpoints” and a waterpoint this was the most fun I had on a 5km route. At each “Glowpoint” music is pumping and an opportunity is taken to glow in the dark walking through neon lights – just before the finish line you are targeted and sprayed with neon coloured paint this was an unexpected turn of events but well worth it :-D.

Once at the end the party began we made it in time to see Mi Casa live these guys know how to get a crowd jiving, Jika my baby ;-). With the Neon Run hosted by 5fm they could not leave behind our crazy uncle South Africa’s own David Guetta this man needs no further introduction Roger GOODEness he has mad energy getting us to do the biggest glow in the dark YMCA, I’m sure a record must’ve been broken hahaha.

Birthday boy Chris Taylor and Jack Skandi took the last set and what an awesome set it was 1h30 minutes of pure adrenaline, with cellphones in the air for Coldplay’s ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’ to another record breaking major bounce by the whole crowd, if you wanted to see a rainbow at night, a top view of the Neon Run concert would be the perfect opportunity.

Mad energy, friendly smiling people, crazy costumes, glowing faces this was definitely a night that will never be forgotten


These are the night that never
My father told me
Hey, hey

If Life had no limits I would…

I am 100% responsible for the creation of my financial future and personal destiny.

The Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town, 11th floor the  view is amazing definitely a place to have your success meal one day – this was the venue of the Brick Buy Brick seminar, part of Robert T. Kiyosaki Rich Dad, Poor Dad series.

If you read the book or should be familiar with the name, you would know he is a property investor so the seminar was an introduction into opening our minds to the possibility of tapping into the wealth that is property investing. Using property as a cashflow tool.

What I enjoy about these seminars are that the speakers are engaging and full of energy allowing the audience to visualise a better life for themselves. The opportunity is there to educate yourself and become part of a team behind a highly successful brand – if you surround yourself with greatness will you not be GREAT yourself ๐Ÿ˜€

The 3 Keys to Success:
1 – Opportunity
2 – Knowledge
3 – MASSIVE Action

I went with a plan to gain insight as I have a curious mind but left with potential knowledge knowing that a shift in your mindset can change your life. 

Your brain is your most valuable asset turn it from a R20 asset to a million dollar/pound whatever currency it all starts with YOU – believe in yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ask yourself If life had no limits I would….so get off you ASSet and achieve your dreams ๐Ÿ˜€
