Marc Lottering has always been one of my all time favourtite comedians. He hits the nail on the head with each performance I have ever attended, and I’ve always made sure that, come hell or high water, I make it to his shows when he is in town. So I was “over the moon” to hear that Lottering at the Lyric will take place on Sunday, the 8th of July at The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City at 3pm.

We’ve seen Airbnb disrupt the entire hospitality industry and today, the biggest taxi company in the world, Uber, doesn’t own a single vehicle. Shared space and assets are not only more practical and affordable than the alternative, but are also rising in popularity globally.

In Cape Town, Africa’s most expensive city for real estate, co-working spaces have become the go-to option for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, SME’s or large companies.

Inner City | Ideas Cartel (IC | IC), located in the heart of Cape Town, offers a diverse, luxury experience. In addition to the co-working offices, company offices, meeting rooms, there’s also a magnificent rooftop and 98-seater auditorium used for events. Members of Inner City | Ideas Cartel have full access to the 11-storey building’s restaurant, coffee bar, library, gym, tailor, barber and rooftop pool.

“Hospital Admission” #YCANSA

Difficult days at our national hospitals is a reality for most of us who have no medical aid. I have recently been journaling about my close relative’s journey with cancer. Please note, my thoughts and opinions are mine and the experiences are real. I am honoured and privileged to share this journey with him as challenging and painful as it may be at times.

So the situation is; he needs to be re-admitted to Helen Joseph Hospital. With all the necessary administration and paperwork, it has literally taken us a full day. It is 5.30pm and we are sitting with him in the waiting area of ward 17. It’s been a long day, but we are at ease as we have the company of 3 more women also awaiting for available beds. They too are waiting since 7am and are complaining that they have not had anything to eat as yet.
