Review: Moafrika Tours – Day Trip to Soweto

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Soweto received its name from the first two letters of South Western Township, which is what the area was first named in 1956 with and now home to an estimated 3.5 million people. When visiting Johannesburg, you would be poorer for not visiting Soweto.

Soweto Welcome

Soweto holds an abundance of history, rich stories and what some may say is interesting foods and beer! The full-day in-depth tour shows you the sparkle, the distress and the joy of Soweto and its people, all of which you can experience with a day tour with MoAfrika Tours.

Searching for the spirit of the great blogger.

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

I did not start blogging for recognition 22 years ago, or to be regarded as influential. I did not start blogging for invitations to events, private parties or functions with famous people. I did not start blogging because I wanted “free stuff” (no such thing exists btw).

I love being a Social Media Diva experiencing exotic dishes and meeting fabulous people, attending world-class productions, informative and inspirational events or making a difference in highlighting causes and projects that I believe in.

Oh, there has been so many of those over the past six years! … but this has never been my motivating factor.

Book Review : On Second Thought

Kristan Higgins is fast becoming a favourite author of mine in a genre I often do not enjoy – a touch of romance, even if contemporary.

With two divorces behind me, I know all that glitter isn’t gold and that loneliness can make for strange bedfellows.

I do believe and experience love, lust and the lingering of romance but… I stick to reading/listening to psychological thrillers, detectives working on the puzzles of murders and I adore memoirs.

In conversation: Chantal Stanfield

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

I have met some endearing and fabulous people during my social media journey, one is the authentically, engaging and talented Chantal Stanfield. I will let her introduce herself!


“Hi, I’m Chantal Stanfield and I get paid to not be myself!” Haha! I’m a performer, whether that’s on-screen, stage or in-studio, in various guises.

Most people would know me from my television role as “Cecile Whittaker” on Sewende Laan and “Dalene Phillips” in Montana including my music video for “Nothing There“.

I’m also a new Mom which is a very different role altogether!

What does the “white picket fence” look like in your head? Continue reading “In conversation: Chantal Stanfield”
