What a week it has been. I had a mysterious tummy bug/migraine attack last weekend and am only now starting to feel myself again. Before we welcome in the weekend go through my latest batch of highlights below…
Wednesday, 11 May 2016: Levi’s factory tour
I wound up wearing all my dachshund fashion to the Levi’s press day. Click here for my full article, published today – the 143rd birthday of the Levi’s 501 button-fly…
We started off with java drinks brewed by the Department of Coffee. Such a clever name and so good!
Clever button-like tables so you don’t forget where you’re working.
Just look at that view! Lion’s Head is my favourite mountain, so this would be my spot of inspiration if I worked at Levi’s.
Denim artwork lines the hallways…
Levi’s artwork on display. Impressive as they’ve only been in these offices a few weeks.
So many interesting things in the Levi’s offices! Look at bits of mannequin. Look at fly-button shaped door handle in the background.
Friday, 13 May 2016: Bizcommunity’s walking tour of Woodstock
Walking Woodstock. To welcome new staff members our entertainment committee planned a walking tour followed by ‘burgers and beer’. It was just a few blocks from the office to Three Feathers Diner so we all trooped along together, chatting and snapping pics as we went. Thanks for the pic, Charlz!
Cheese! We all stopped in front of some colourful graffiti. Only a few remembered to don their sunnies so most of us are squinting but it’s still a fun shot! Thanks to our creative director Terry Levin for snapping us worker bees.
See the interesting artwork – “You’ll never walk alone” is fitting as we all walked together, teehee.
Because of an order-timing issue, I ended up with a chocolate shake and a coffee shake – at the same time.
My meal at Three Feathers Diner. While that’s not exactly ‘crumbled feta’ as promised on the menu, the Mercury burger was delicious.
We popped into Delos on our way back to the office after lunch and ‘oohed’ and ‘aahed’ over many lovely things, like the ship light in the background.
Saturday, 14 May 2016: Darts and braai time
What a cute bunny guarding the cakes at Village Place Cafe in West Coast Village! I ended up with a slice of the cake you see – vanilla chai latte. Was fresh and delicious. And yes, that was for breakfast.
The perfect cappuccino and shortbread heart on the side to wash it down.
Husband had the French Village toasted, touted as the best sandwich. It sure was a pleasing mix of cheese, ham and mustard first thing in the morning.
Later we popped in at a friend’s house for a ‘quick braai’. This is the braai fire, with lots of wood at the ready to keep things burning.
Husband had a thrilling game of darts while waiting for the meat to cook.
I tried out the swinging tyre-seat chair.
So did Husband.
Sunday, 16 May 2016: Breakfast overlooking Blouberg beach
Why not add some beautiful scenery to your Sunday morning breakfast by opting for Primi above Marine Circle in Blouberg?
Husband went for the Huevos Ranchos. I just had plain brown toast and a pot of Rooibos as was not feeling grand.
Thursday, 19 May 2016: Cape Town sunrise
As we were up with the sparrows to go to work by car because of a chance of rain, we caught the beautiful pinky clouds as the sun rose.
Just a few minutes later, everything had brightened and lightened. That’s Table Mountain way off in the distance.
The beautiful flowers displayed on the counter in our coffee shop downstairs always brighten my day.
That’s all, folks! A very happy weekend to all 🙂
