Strolling down Mouille Point

*Click on title to view original post*

Mouille Point's (pronounced Moo-lee point) right next to Sea Point, and since it was another glorious day today, we decided to take a walk down the promenade by the Light House.

Pruned Lavender

I have no idea if I'm supposed to prune lavender after the flowers have wilted, but google articles say you should. And I have no idea where you're supposed to prune it - right under the flower (like most other flowers), or at the bottom of the long stem, where the leaves stop growing...

I tried pruning just under the flowers, but it looked weird having all the long, empty stalks sticking out of the plant, so I chopped them all off and what's left is... a leafy bush. Guess I'll have to wait and see whether they'll grow anymore flowers after this... gulp.

Hanging out on Clifton Beach

*Click on title to view original post*

It was a glorious Sunday this past weekend so we decided to head down to the beach. The nearest one to us is Clifton Beach. It's a shee-shee beach in a shee-shee area and is split into 4 different beaches (although it's really 1 long beach that happens to have boulders that act as the dividing lines between the beaches).

Clifton Beach #1 = Beach Sports & Dogs hangout
Clifton Beach #2 = Celebrity hangout
Clifton Beach #3 = Gay pickup hangout
Clifton Beach #4 = Family & Tourist hangout

We happened to get parking at Beach #2, so we parked our bums there... no celebrities in sight though (although I wouldn't know who the heck to look out for. I can only recognize local celeb, Minki van der Westhuizen, only because I buy Heat magazine religiously every week. Also coz she has a rather unfortunate, unforgettable first name. Her claim to fame - swimsuit model. Of course.)

Dipped my toes into the Atlantic Ocean for the first time in my life - and got major ANKLE-FREEZE within 2 seconds. The picture of my feet in the water is as far as I went - it's about 5 degrees celsius! MAD!

Kelly's got a Scooter

*Click on title to view original post*

Since summer's pretty much here and the tourists will soon jam up the roads, Kelly's insisted on getting a scooter (easier to get through jams). He decided this past weekend "I'm getting a scooter this week", promptly went out scooter-shopping during lunch with his art director on Monday, and actually bought one on the spot.

I was like "HAR?!? You bought one already?!? No research, no bargain-hunting, you just went and bought a Kymco?! Simi lai eh?" ...he said "Made in Korea". Later that night, only after having purchased the scooter already, he comes home and starts researching the reviews and gets on the forums to find out all about the Kymco Agility 125. "Oh. It's Made in China. But it's got good reviews and more reliable than Yamaha." HAHAHA.

Anyways, it's really cute. And it's got flames along the sides (no, not airbrushed - stickers only.) There were more flame stickers on the front initially, but those were bordering on the really cheena, so he got those removed. I drove behind him in the car on his maiden ride to the office this morning - and I couldn't go past 3rd gear!

Check out the photo album on the left for more pix. (plus... he's got a garang full-face helmet, Ultra Man-vibe. He was so excited he was wearing the helmet around the house AND while driving the car to pick up the scooter. hahaha, damn funny.)

Shoot in Nature's Valley

*Click on title to view original post*

Just wrapped a 4-day shoot. 2 days were here in a Cape Town studio and another 2 days were out in Nature's Valley, a 6-hour drive up north to a nature reserve that's just spectacular.

Can't give anything away or upload more pix than these until it's on air, but it gives you an idea of how beautiful it is here.
*P.S. No, the spiral staircase still hasn't been fixed. It's Africa time.
