What were they thinking, and here I am talking about that 15 Stormers that were on the field yesterday. What a bunch of wallies … I have not seen a bunch of guys that for 80 minutes had no idea what they were doing. On yesterday’s performance they do not deserve to be in the semi’s.
Well done to the Sharks that showed how it should be done. Good luck to them and let us all go out and support them next weekend against the Waratahs.
Over the past week, I have spend 3 glorious days in Sun City courtesy of IBM for great work delivered during 2007. I was one of the lucky one’s that stayed in the Cascades hotel and what a joy. I was not like Tertia and spend basically all my allowance provided by IBM.
Went on a game drive early on the first morning and almost froze to death but what a great drive. Got to know a elephant … the driver had to quickly start the vehicle and move away so close the elephant got. Also was treated to a baby white rino, “rooikat”, zebra, giraffe, impala and various other wildlife. Unfortunately we did not get to see lions or cheetahs.
Went on a walk through the Sun City forest over hang bridges and through waterfalls. The photo above is from behind the waterfall. Bet you did not know you can walk behind waterfalls in Sun City.
For those that know me, no I did not play golf. We could not play the Gary Player course since there was a Pro Tournament on at the time and I do not like the Lost City course so decided to give golf a skip. Above is picture of the 9th hole on the Gary Player course and below the Lost City course taken from the tower on top of the Palace of the Lost City hotel.
On the first evening we went to watch the show, Let There be Rock, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. One pity is that they played no Queen music which was a bit weird since I cannot see how you can have a Rock music show without Queen.
Both evenings we had gala dinners and on the second evening people partied till in the wee hours of the morning. I was not that brave 🙂
Lounged around the pool, sipping cocktails and beers. Spending time with friends. Just had a great 3 days away from the office and did not had to worry about work and all the other things that is going on in my life. Thanks IBM, I really enjoyed it and appreciate the gesture.
A friend of mine will be spending the next week there on a conference. M, if you read this, take some time out from the hectic conference life and just enjoy some of what Sun City has to offer.
You can see all the Sun City photos on my Flickr stream.
