The World Cup is here – Feel it!

Posted by on Jun 11, 2010 in Cape Town, My life, Sport | 0 comments

So today is the big day!

The entire world is now watching, and it is time for Africa to show the world how we roll. I am sure the whole of Mzanzi will unite, like they already have been doing, for the rest of the tournament. It has been magical to see how the country has bonded and joined behind a common cause: Bafana Bafana.

It is time to embrace your African heritage and become one South Africa!

Help Save The Cape Town Ballet

Posted by on Apr 14, 2010 in Cape Town, Sport | 4 comments

This is a plee to help save something of beauty in Cape Town: The Cape Town Ballet

The Cape Town Ballet has really been struggling of late, and many think that Ballet is a dying art form. It has definitely taken a back seat with kids becoming far lazier in recent years, and with the invention of new technology and gaming consoles, kids are not bothered about becoming active and embracing such an art form.

Kids today would rather sit on their behind and play video games or watch TV than take on such a beautiful thing as dance in general. With this, the Cape Town Ballet has started to suffer, and they are in serious financial support.

This is not something that can just disappear and be forgotten. This is an art form, and something that is beautiful, delicate, elegant and something that needs to be preserved at all costs. I would go further than saying this is just a hobby or sport for some, but rather an educational experience watching Ballet.

I am a guy and do not particularly find any interest in Ballet, but I still think it is an awesome thing. Such grace and elegance is required, and it can educate you in the art of hard work, discipline and fill your life with colour and beauty.

Here is my request:

I challenge and beg you to donate towards this worthy cause. Save the Cape Town Ballet, and save a piece of Cape Town’s beautiful heritage, and provide people with the avenue to express theirselves.

save the cape town ballet

I challenge you to match my donation of R100! The bigger the better! We are looking for 100 000′s of Rands, so we really do need some big donations!
