Cold rainy days are for warm outings

​My greatest love when it’s cold. This time of the year is great in Pietermaritzburg, it is cool and the flowers and trees are beautiful. All looks so great but God knows I hate the unpredictable London-like weather. Despite heating up the room and a cup of soup, still feels like something is missing. I think it’s the memories of cold days when I was younger that make me feel this way. My mom would make the warmest meal she

The day the devil went to church

(Fiction) One evening the devil was sitting and reflecting on all the things he’d done. While reminiscing on his life, he realized that he had really done a lot of damage to a lot of innocent people and some who weren’t so innocent. All this thinking actually made his head hurt and somehow reached at the core of his heart; that’s when he decided that it was time repent and on that warm Saturday night he decided to go to

Coffee and Chocolate

There’s nothing better to soothe an aching, confused and close to broken heart than a cold milkshake on a cold day. Coffee and chocolate I ordered it to be. For very specific reasons really. I may be a health freak but I had to break my healthy routine because a broken heart can lead to “epidemic proportions” as Oom Oubas always says. So the coffee makes one to calm down a bit in my case that is and the chocolate

In love with a new snack

A few weeks ago I tasted a mini puff pastry in store at Spar and I liked it. It was a new product and they were promoting it. On display were chess puffs and sausage rolls. Now, I love cheese and thought that the cheese puffs were great but that bite into the sausage roll changed my mind. It was really a great tasting sausage unlike some brands that lie to us by using some paper tasting thing inside their

The woman you always thought you could be

Remember when you were young you always imagined yourself as various women. You were the doctor who took care of all the sick patients despite their ailments, you cured everything. You were a perfect musician, the whole package, you sang and danced and even had that diva attitude and style to go with it. You were a pharmacist, made all different kinds of healing and life prolonging concoctions, though sometimes it was just sugar and grass, it worked. You took

Tweety bird

  Oh tweety bird, Why are you so full of fear? Why do you not do what you long for? You were born for this, why do you fear it? Your wings may be small but they will carry you, They will carry you to the place you so desperately long to be, They may look weak but they were designed for this, Do not fear, you were born for this, Spread your wings, start flapping them, Jump off out

Phoenix

In the last days, I fell out of the sky, Like a shooting star I came crashing down, In the last days, I burnt out, I had given all of me and all of my strength, On my last day, I burnt to ashes, There was nothing more I could give.

A new beginning: reflections(2015) and aspirations(2016)

With every passing year one realizes that some things in life are meant to come to an end; and with every new year one realizes that something in them or about them either has or needs to change. Some people set resolutions while others attempt a complete 360 degrees turn. I on the other hand think before setting resolutions or trying to turn over completely one needs to do an introspection; to reflect on the past year and plan for
