I love this place!!

Tablemountain 1

For those that live in and around Cape Town will in all likelihood know where this photo was taken from.  Those that are young at heart or not so young at heart, with love in their eyes ,has probably spend some time in his/her car making out here.  The road is called “Lovers Lane” because of it beauty at night when Cape Town is light up with all the street lights.  Some time ago even Table Mountain was light up but now with the power crisis this does not happen anymore.

Glorious Cape Town !!!

Office View

This is the view from my office window yesterday.  What better view can there be in the whole wide world.  Nothing I say.  When this photo was taken, the Cable Car was on its way up the mountain.  How I wished I was in it but alas, one has to work.

For my overseas IBM colleagues, this is taken from one of the IBM offices in Cape Town.

Roos at it again.

I have written about Roos before here and here.

I see from a News 24 article that the Aussies is not to happy with him also.  Awarding 39 penalties and free kicks without a yellow or red card does not make sense.

When is anything going to be done about bad referring?

Weekend of sport!!

Was a really interesting sports weekend from my perspective.

The Stormers won their second game on the trot away from home.  Who would have thought this.  For a team that blows hot and cold, this is a good start to their tour in Australasia.  Lets just hope they keep it up but to be honest, the first 2 games was against weaker teams.

Tiger Woods did it again by winning the 2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational with a birdie in the 72nd hole. Woods tied Ben Hogan with the third most PGA TOUR career victories with 64. The amazing thing is that we are in March already and Tiger has not lost this year yet.  Every tournament that he has started this year, he has won.  This must be real scary for other players when they see his name on the entry list.

Formula 1 stated this weekend in Melbourne, Australia and what a disastrous weekend for the defending champions, Ferrari and Kimi Raikkonen.  The race was won by Hamilton in his McLaren. I just hope this is not an indication of the season to come, since then it is going to be a very boring season.  At least the BMW team did show some improvement from last year.

And the Proteas (South Africa cricket team) moved to the number 1 spot on the ODI world rankings going past Australia.  I do not know whether that really means anything since they got there by beating the worst test team, Bangladesh, in the world.  But I suppose it is the same for all teams so it is something.

Naweek in Gauteng of liewers in Pretoria.

Wat besiel ‘n uit en uit Kapenaar om ‘n naweek in Pretoria te gaan deur bring.  Wel 2 dinge basies (OK, Louise, ek sal nie basies sê nie):

  1. Genooi deur ‘n goeie vriendin en hoe kan mens nou nee sê.
  2. Aangesien almal van heinde en verre die Kaap oorgeneem het vir die Argus, toe besluit ek maar om ‘n ander rigting in te slaan.

Laat Vrydagaand Johannesburg to gevlieg en die aand rustig verkeer.  Saterdagoggend fietsryers lughawe toe geneem wat die Argus kom ry het, en hulle het goed gedoen.  Neil het klaar gemaak in net oor die 3 uur en Andre om en by 4 uur.  Daarna by die Dros gaan iets drink en die laaste deel van die Stormers rugby wedstryd gekyk.  Dat ek nou heel pad Gauteng toe moes gaan om die Stormers te sien wen.

Die weer was redelik warm in Pretoria en het so bietjie afgekoel in die swembad.  Dis hoe die huis lyk waar ek gaan kuier het.

Sondagoggend gespandeer in een van Pretoria se kwekerye wat seker die grootste kwekery is wat ek nog gesien het.  Mens kan die heel dag daar spandeer onder die groot bome en allens besigtig wat mens ookal mag begeer vir mens se tuin.  Hier is paar fotos van die plek.  Ja tot Koi visse ook.

Sondagaand laat weer terug gevlieg huis toe en soos maar deesdae die inding is met vlieg was die vlug natuurlik vertraag.

Een van die beste dinge van so ‘n wegbreuk naweek is dat ek geen rekenaar naby gehad het nie en punt gemaak het om geen e-pos/twitter/facebook te volg nie.
