Pink flamingoes at the Nasdak & jealous owlie mug strikes again

It’s been a somewhat quiet, lonely week as Husband had to work last weekend and I was head-down preparing our coverage for the recent IAB Digital Summit and Bookmark Awards for the rest of it.

But we always have our happy moments sprinkled in-between…

Saturday, 11 March 2017: Hartlief’s breakfast, homegrown mielies for dins

Breakfast at Hartlief's Deli
As I was flying solo while Husband worked last weekend, Mum and Dad were kind enough to include me in their breakfast plans. Here we are smiling at/because of our food at Hartlief’s Deli in Gardens. (Yes, Mum’s having soup for breakfast.)
Hartliefs cappuccinos
Cappuccinos always get the morning off to the right start.
Homegrown mielies
For dins that evening we got to sample Husband’s first batch of homegrown mielies and they were absolutely delicious – glossy and fresh and so tasty that even Bertie was interested…

Sunday, 12 March 2017: Couch reading and suburban sunsets

Read book with dog
Sunday was all about reading on the couch for me and Bassie.
Dogs on couch
We spent much of the afternoon like this.
bolognese pasta
Mmm, it was bolognese pasta with parmesan for Sunday lupper at Mum’s.
Fruity custard flan.
For dessert, this fruity custard flan, yum!
Sunset
The sky went all pastel pretty at sunset that eve.

Wednesday, 15 March 2017: Muffins and meetings

Chocolate muffins.
Wednesday was a meeting packed, two chocolate-y muffins kind of day. The owlie mug was jealous.
Liquorice office
My Wednesday highlight was a visit to the Liquorice office space in town. They’re quite the bustling agency and did very well at the Bookmark Awards (read my interview with them for proof)!

Thursday, 16 March 2017: Experian Mosaic tool launch at the Nasdak

Media24 building
In addition to the Bookmark Awards in JHB, it was also the launch of Experian’s next-gen customer segmentation tool at the Nasdak in the Media24 building in Cape Town’s CBD.
View of harbour from Nasdak at Media24
I’d been to the media24 Building before but never to the ‘Nasdak’ (Naspers’ dak) on its 26th floor. Look at those views, all across the harbour!
Media24 building Cape Town.
But just look at the view of Table Mountain from the other end of the building! I’d never get any work done if this was my office.
Experian event
Some of the sights of the afternoon. All very interesting for consumer trends research marketers.
Muffins
Morning muffins to kick our brains into gear.
Pink flamingoes
The theme was ‘Through the looking glass’ from Alice in Wonderland, hence these ‘Drink me’ pink drinks.
Media24 Nasdak
T’was a packed venue and a most impressive event.
Burger King office drop off
I got back to the office just in time to be ululated at and presented with Burger King’s new boerie burger.

That’s all, folks! We’re both off this weekend so yay for some much needed relaxing and napping and taking it easy…
