• Most Exclusive Whiskies in SA

              I wouldn’t call myself a whisky fan, but my dad used to love it. His favourite brands were Johnny Walker or Chivas Regal for special occasions, and Black & White for “everyday drinking.” Yup, he drank whisky a lot. I was stunned when I saw this infographic from Makro, who(…)

  • The Equilibrium Centre in Saxonwold

    Everyone has their own preference when it comes to exercise- some love escaping in the swimming pool, while others prefer road running. For some, more “low key” exercise hits the spot, where it’s as much about achieving mental stillness as it is about exercising the body. This is where yoga and pilates at the Equilibrium(…)

  • A weekend at Mandarin Oriental in Kuala Lumpur

    If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you’ll know that I’ve been having the time of my life travelling around Asia during my time in Singapore. One of the first trips I did was to Kuala Lumpur, a short 1 hour flight away. It was my first time staying at a Mandarin Oriental property,(…)

  • My favourite pieces of Singapore

    Admittedly, my experience of Singapore has not been normal. I’m in a bubble- surrounded by intelligent, fun, dynamic people, the company of whom I’d enjoy even if we were stranded in Bloemfontein (for non South Africans, this is the equivalent of a really small town in Malaysia, for e.g.) We move around in this bubble-(…)

4 days in Los Angeles- Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Venice Beach and more!

4 days in Los Angeles- Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Venice Beach and more!

Hello hello I hope all is well on your side. Time is flying by at INSEAD. Know when life is so good you can’t really talk about it because it would just seem like you are showing off? Like, there’s nothing even slightly negative to say. I never cease to be amazed by the quality of(…)

Everything You Need To Know About Las Vegas

Everything You Need To Know About Las Vegas

Vegas is one of those places that is on everyone’s bucket list, and rightly so. It’s iconic and you need to go at least once in your life. Would I go again? I don’t think so. Is it one of my favourite parts of the US? Not at all. Las Vegas wasn’t really my cup(…)

Road Tripping through Florida

Road Tripping through Florida

Now that all 3 of my US pieces have been published in the Sunday Indy, I can finally write about it on Jozilicious –yay! Planning a month in the US took a LOT of time. I would say I worked on the trip everyday for about 6 weeks. I had resigned from work by this(…)

Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental

Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental

In Singapore, brunching is huge, especially on the weekends. People tend to show up at around 11am, and enjoy Prosecco or Bloody Marys until 2pm or 3pm. Most brunch spots offer the usual- Eggs Benedict, Pancakes… you know the deal. Recently, Mandarin Oriental in Singapore invited me over to try their Dim Sum brunch at(…)

Jozi’s New Tapas Spot: Vicky Cristina’s

I know I know, Vicky Cristina’s isn’t still “new”, but there is a chance you may not have been there yet. If this is the case, go! I went during the day, and admittedly, the black and red decor does lend itself more to a nighttime ambiance. We tried a little bit of everything and(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles- Finally, good wine that doesn’t break the bank!

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles- Finally, good wine that doesn’t break the bank!

Before the MBA got started officially, I had about 2 weeks to do restaurant reviews. I really thought that I’d continue reviewing restaurants at the same pace as I did back in SA, and was super excited about discovering a new country’s food. Now that I’ve settled into a routine, it isn’t quite working out(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles: The Entertainer at Saha

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles: The Entertainer at Saha

A while ago, I was invited to my very first blogging event in Singapore. The event was to introduce the Entertainer app to Singapore bloggers. It was so exciting to meet these bloggers, and realise that they’re not that different from me. More importantly, it was great to get restaurant recommendations for Singapore! I always feel(…)

Singapore Restaurant Chronicles: Great Burgers at Potato Head Folk

Hello there I’ve been missing the blog terribly- I’ve been itching to write but just haven’t found the time. I may have taken on a little too much in the social sphere, such that I don’t have time for much else (including school work!!) I’m the social rep for my class, the president of the(…)

2 months in Singapore

2 months in Singapore

Hey hey I’m writing this post because I’m really in the mood to blog, which is the best time to write- not when you have to or need to. I actually miss being just a blogger and not a freelance writer, because back then, every single blog post was written with passion. Now, I simply don’t(…)

Joburg, do this: Skip Fashion Exchange

Calling all fashion lovers! Skip got into touch with me to let me know about a really fab event that’s happening soon- the Skip Fashion Exchange.  I love an excuse to go out with my girlfriends, and I think this is a great way to do something different. Basically, the idea is that you bring(…)

Oral B Pro Expert Review

Oral B Pro Expert Review

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a good week. On my side, I seem to have caught an INSEAD bug that’s going around, so I’m feeling a bit under the weather. I’m taking it easy this morning ahead of a BIG weekend, the Grand Prix is happening all weekend in Singapore- with performances by(…)

The INSEAD MBA: Week 1

The INSEAD MBA: Week 1

Hello hello! Since my last post, things have picked up a lot. Last week was completely consuming- socially, mentally, physically. I had no time to even think about anything else. I’m not quite sure how to start telling you about it… so maybe I’ll start at the beginning. The first few days were all about getting(…)
